Balmoral kitchen oak timber tones
Designed to fit around a suite of new Fisher and Paykel appliances, this kitchen space could have become a slave to function. Instead architect Evelyn McNamara has deftly created a kitchen workspace that is elegant, bold and inventive. The kitchen island incorporates the induction hob-top, requiring a custom-built suspended shelf to house the extraction canopy.
The kitchen cabinets are finished in stained American Oak veneer which is crown-cut to highlight the grain. The richness of this finish is nicely off-set by the crisp white of the lacquered kitchen island.
Touches of red including the tap ware, and custom-printed glass splash backs designed by Auckland artist Flox, add sophistication and personality to complete this successful transformation.
