Before and After Obsession No.3

No.3 – Bespoke Oak

Back to basics with a classic layout and neutral-toned finishes.
The crisp lines of the bright-white cabinetry and benchtops highlight the soft edges and warmth of the circular
raised Blackbutt breakfast bar, making it the standout feature of the space. The breakfast bar transforms the
design from something basic into a space that complements the owners’ lifestyle, providing the perfect spot to enjoy
a morning coffee or a drink before dinner.

The light and airy space provides the owners with a blank canvas to add their own personal touches, and the
timelessness of the largely white palette allows for plenty of customization. Featuring Polytec ‘Classic White’
melamine doors and panels in a sheen finish, satin chrome bow handles and pristine Caesarstone Ice Snow benchtops, this
kitchen is sure to stand the test of time.

The core element of this kitchen is its practicality, which inspired the layout as well as the fixtures, finishes and
appliances. An integrated wall oven and a cleverly positioned microwave nook enhance the kitchens functionality,
while a large bench adjacent to the induction cooktop makes food preparation near effortless. The smooth surfaces
and open-plan design allow for an easy clean-up. Plenty of space around the cook top for food preparation.

Handle-less overhead cabinets, multiple drawers, and a separate small appliance nook help maintain a neat and tidy
appearance without compromising usability. The kitchen also features a spacious walk-in pantry to provide ample
storage options and reduce clutter. Under-cabinet LED strip lighting provides optimum illumination for cooking at
any time of the day. Two large bowl sinks, big enough to clean the largest of pots and pans.


Working with the existing layout of the home, the expert team at Select Kitchens & Bathrooms cleverly disguised the
bulkhead, ducting the rangehood through an external wall in the laundry. Additionally, the plumbing and electrical
services were hidden within the pantry structure. The company’s great attention to detail ensured seamless
integration of all elements.

We hope you are enjoying our Before and After Obsession so far. Next week will present a Bathroom transformation!
