The Kallista Kitchen

The clients brief for this kitchen design was classic with simple, clean lines.
We've used a plain framed door, laminate bench tops with fine elements of recycled Tasmanian oak throughout.

The framed doors have been hand painted in a classic cream. The technique of hand painting gives the doors a lovely texture and replicates an older style of finishing.

The kitchen features a beautiful handmade plate rack created out of recycled Tasmanian Oak machined with a very fine moulding.

The clients brief included that she would like a rack made to display her cool old rolling pins.

 The top of the mantlepiece features a nice thick slab of timber to match the other highlights.
All of the details in this kitchen, the hand painted panel doors, the carefully chosen door and drawer pulls, the use of timber for the mantle, the leadblight panels and the elegant display racks combine to create a very unique and beautiful piece of joinery.
A pleasure to build.
