St Johns Kitchen
We worked on the full house for this renovation. Our main focus was the kitchen/ living/ dining space and the three bathrooms, with finishing touches to the rest of the house.
The kitchen space was an angular room with two structural pillars right through the middle of the original kitchen. We worked with heights of cabinetry to help hide one of these and looked at the other as a feature. We decided to play on the angles of the room and designed an angled, triangular shaped benchtop to follow the lines of the room which created an expansive island. We also included a drop down attached dining table for the family. As the family had items they wanted to display we designed a open shelving unit to one end of the island with led strip lighting to highlight the detail. The bar area with build in beer tap, wine and mirrored splashback is a feature in this space and adds a touch of glam. In regards to the colour palette, as the space was so large it could cope with a deeper toned colour palette. We specified a dark charcoal soft touch acrylic with a lighter concrete look engineered stone benchtop. With accents of dark timber and black in the open shelving, dining table, pillar, rangehood surround, pendant light and handles
Our clients said “We worked with Nicola to undertake a full renovation of our home, including all bathrooms, kitchen, flooring and internal colours. Nicola was professional, provided great options after listening to our tastes and preference and also was a perfectionist when it came time to implement the project. We relied a lot of her suggestions for making the house interesting and pushing outside our comfort zone. Nicola was always prompt with her communication and always on hand when I needed even the smallest piece of advice when it came down to the final implementation of her design. We also worked with tradespeople who were recommended by Nicola who were also fastidious and professional. All went to plan and when we had any little glitches (as you will always expect with any project of this size) they were fast to resolve and progress. I would not hesitate to recommend Nicola and Katherine and would happily work with NM Design again in the future.”
