Natural Quartzite stone island benchtop, Neolith hidden pantry benchtop & Wall with bead blasted European oak cabinetry 

Stand out features: 

The existing kitchen was dark and had a very low, sloped ceiling with an even lower structural beam, which Natalie raised and hid in the ceiling instead. She also opened up the tight, u-shaped layout into a user-friendly galley island configuration. This encourages more flow and, with an addition of large glass doors at the rear, allows light to flood into the space from the back deck – previously cut off by the laundry. 

Designer Natalie Du Bois introduced a number of design elements, such as the curves to the corners of the stone-clad island and the textured, bead-blasted wood grain cabinetry, which ties in with other timber elements throughout this holiday home. 

This home has beautiful sea views, which Natalie felt really needed to be celebrated, so she re-oriented the kitchen to allow the vistas to be enjoyed, plus have better flow. 

The result is an easy-to-work-in, holiday-home kitchen that oozes the feeling of relaxation and good times.
