Arguably the most important room in the house, a well-designed kitchen will enhance the day-to-day experience of any home. Creating an original, aesthetically pleasing space which incorporates all functional aspects of a kitchen is no easy task. To give you some ideas for when your kitchen renovation comes around, we’ve found five of our favourites from around Australia…

 

Lees House by Rob Kennon Architects5 Well-Designed Kitchens From Around Australia

This is definitely one of the most distinctive kitchens we’ve seen. The primary material used is timber, which is offset beautifully by the black drawers and cabinets. Though the kitchen is fairly narrow, it still feels quite spacey and open thanks to its overall light palette and concrete floors.

Carlton Cloister by MRTN Architects5 Well-Designed Kitchens From Around Australia 5 Well-Designed Kitchens From Around Australia

Marble and timber is always a nice combination, and it works beautifully in the kitchen of this family home in Melbourne’s Carlton. In addition to its good looks, the kitchen is also extremely functional. It has storage space aplenty, with elegant timber cabinets and shelves.

Fitzroy Loft by Architects EAT 5 Well-Designed Kitchens From Around Australia 5 Well-Designed Kitchens From Around Australia

We love everything about this project by Architects EAT. The kitchen in the loft is especially cool. The simple design features a subdued grey and white colour palette, punctuated by black detailing and lively greenery. The open-plan nature of the kitchen is what appeals to us the most, though.

Cross Street by CM Studio 5 Well-Designed Kitchens From Around Australia

The kitchen in this Bronte apartment has a super clean look, thanks to its white cabinets and grey tiled splashback. The varied shades of grey in the tiles and their beeswax appearance gives the space an overall deeper look. A black picnic-bench style kitchen table and timber benches adds a sense of warmth into the kitchen.

Surry Hills Apartment by Josephine Hurley Architecture 5 Well-Designed Kitchens From Around Australia 5 Well-Designed Kitchens From Around Australia

Interestingly enough, this apartment in Sydney’s Surry Hills has two kitchens. One in the main living quarters, and the other in a separate guest area. The guest kitchen (pictured) can be hidden away when it’s not in use, thanks to the crafty placement of some sliding doors. Super handy when you’ve made a mess but don’t have time to clean it up before people come over!
