Industrial Kitchen by S2 design

Industrial. Stylish and a little eccentric, you’re a one-of-a-kind individual comfortable with who you are. A coffee maker is a kitchen essential, and whether you’re in the mood for cooking up a feast or just want to nibble on a piece of Vegemite toast for dinner, your kitchen has to go with the flow.

Asian Kitchen by Ayla Constructions

Asian inspired. Sleek open spaces give you room to breathe and expansive benchtops make you feel at peace. You keep clutter well away from your minimalist kitchen.

Tropical Kitchen by Rob Downey Photography

Upmarket tropical. You’re a beach goer who is all about a healthy, active lifestyle. A kitchen that brings the colours of the ocean home from the beach makes you feel free, but you have an eye for the finer things in life, too. Marble and European tapware all the way.

Contemporary Kitchen by Victoria’s Interiors

Empty nester. You need room to accommodate the family when they come to stay, but don’t want to sit at an empty table between visits. This eat-in kitchen is just the thing for a one or two-person householder who likes to entertain.

Traditional Kitchen by Stephen Graver Ltd

Traditional. You love that the timeless classics are still in fashion but you’re not afraid to move with the times when it comes to minor tweaks. Bench-to-ceiling subway tiling you can live with; anything that strays too far from traditional style you cannot.

Contemporary Kitchen by Sam Crawford Architects

Inside outside. You know you have to be inside at least some of the time, but if there’s an opportunity to bring the outdoors in, you’re on to it. A kitchen that sprawls effortlessly on to the deck for al fresco cooking and entertaining is a natural fit.

Midcentury Kitchen by Sharyn Cairns

Mid-century modern. The clean lines and flat-panel cabinetry in your kitchen tie in perfectly with the natural timber, Andy Warhol artworks and Eames chairs in the rest of your home.

Traditional Kitchen by Farmers

French Provincial. Dark marble benchtops paired with a vintage stove and an elegant chandelier take you straight to the French chateau where you know you really belong. Add in some elaborate detailing and you’re ready to whip up a delectable gateau.

Beach Style Kitchen by Stephen Graver Ltd

Casual and coastal. White cotton, a tan, and a beach towel is all you need to feel comfortable, and your kitchen reflects your simple approach to life. Beachy hues in fresh and bright surrounds make the living easy.

Entertainer’s dream.
You’re not averse to a cocktail party, and if there’s an excuse to celebrate with a gathering of colleagues, friends and associates, you’re already emailing the invitations. Expansive and stylish, your kitchen is likely to open up to a butler’s pantry with an extra drinks fridge and room to hide away the mess so you can get on with the party. A double dishwasher and oven goes without saying.

Transitional Kitchen by LDa Architecture & Interiors

Bold and masculine. Who says a woman’s place is in the kitchen? You wear the pants in this household, and can cook a mean curry, too. This handsome kitchen has it all – it’s dark and broody, but isn’t afraid to shine with the addition of some modern stainless steel lighting, stools and appliances.

Organic delight. Nothing in your kitchen has been touched by a pesticide, and herbs for your hearty and healthy gastronomic creations are within easy reach. Natural timber, room for recycling, and upcycled furnishings and artwork just make sense to you.
