Surry Hills Kitchen & Staircase Transformation

Our Surry Hills clients wanted to update their dark and outdated colour scheme, and bring an element of luxury and space to their cramped kitchen and staircase area. Here's how we met the brief...


The Design Brief

The existing kitchen joinery was outdated brown wood and the bulky dark benchtop dominated the space, as you can see below. The galley was cramped, and the fridge/ pantry was located under the stairs, making it a very confined and awkward space to work in.

The clients wanted a crisp white kitchen to give an open-plan living room to complement the furniture in the rest of the home. They also wanted to ensure that the terrace house flowed from one room to the next - so consistency in design principles was paramount.

The Design Statement

In order to improve the flow of the kitchen and the serviceability of the layout, we relocated the fridge and pantry to be in line with the stairs and resurfaced the floor. By doing this we could increase the size of the kitchen - by only a small margin, but the change has helped to make the kitchen more roomy and pleasant to be in.

We used a minimal and neutral colour scheme to create that airy feeling in the space and by using black appliances, the kitchen is an elegant statement of luxury - with nothing dominating the scheme in the form of contrasting finishes - the result is simplicity and elegance, and really serves to enhance the clients’ furnishings and artworks.

Our approach to the overall design and palette was very much influenced by our love of modernism, simplicity and of course functionality. When we design, we’re all about sleek finishes, modern yet timeless materials, simple clean lines, and a neutral light palette whilst remaining warm and inviting.

The Client's Response

"We can come up with an idea, and mention it to Dean, and it is never too much. There is always a way of doing it. The team was very flexible, as the project started as a kitchen but turned into everything!"
