From classic designs to contemporary chic and vintage charm, these kitchens ooze in personality, style, function and flair. What’s your style?
The Classic Kitchen
You want a kitchen design that is enduring, beautiful and timeless. Your kitchen should be the heart and the soul of the home, but it also needs to be stylish, reflect your personality and be functional – and a place where the preparation of food, entertaining, practicality and life quality are a top priority. And this is why classic kitchens are so desirable – they are based on original designs using architectural principals that stand the test of time.
Think classic and elegant appliances with a contemporary feel. Made using the highest quality materials and construction, classic kitchens incorporate the latest technology to make the kitchen and home-cooking easy and enjoyable. A stainless steel oven design with smooth and sleek lines, Eclipse black opaque glass door that has total visibility when the light is on and TFT displays will not only outlast the trends, but it will ensure your roasts are succulent, your soufflés are perfect and your pastries are delectable. State-of-the art coffee machines, cooktops, rangehoods, tap fixtures and fittings and other key kitchen appliances with refined designs in modern shapes will ensure it transcends time.
Perfect for: Classic kitchens can enhance the most traditional or contemporary kitchen. The sleek, stainless steel finishes on ovens with black glass give a subtle hint at industrial style, while the modern shapes and ergonomic designs ensure timelessness.
Creating a charming and functional retro-inspired kitchen that oozes in style, nostalgia incorporates the latest innovative technology is easier than you think. Just cast your mind back to the 1950s – where home-style cooking and families connected at the dinner table. The kitchen was the soul of the home. Pay homage to a simpler way of life with retro-style ovens made from the highest quality enamel finishes, striking chrome knobs, softly-curved lines and time-enduring features and finishes brimming with personality. Then showcase 50s inspired kitchen appliances, like a blender, kettle and toaster proudly on benchtops to cement the theme.
Perfect for: From French countryside inspired homes to the Hamptons and New-York warehouse designs, to the Australian Queenslander, suburban semi or city apartment, retro-inspired designs will add instant glamour to the kitchen while retaining that warm and charming feel. Try white or panna (cream) enamel finishes for a traditional, 50s style look. Or for a modern, industrial chic spin on vintage, go for sleek and contemporary black enamel finishes.
Think stunning, sleek, linear lines, stainless steel finishes, reflective glass and subtle styling. The modern and minimalist contemporary chic kitchen is perfect for people who love symmetry, light, style and maximising space.
Choose a contemporary, high-performance oven design with reflective glass and a mirror-finish stainless steel to set the tone for the rest of the kitchen. Stopsol super-silver glass is an incredibly strong material with a crystal translucency unique to Smeg. When this mirror finish is combined with satin stainless steel, it will give your kitchen a beautiful reflective light that’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Add ergonomically designed oven handles, TFT displays and back-lit transparent control knobs to make a real style statement in the kitchen. Complement the look with appliances and essentials like a compact microwave, steam oven, coffee machine, cooktop, sink and rangehood designed using minimalist lines and reflective qualities to maximise the light and space.
