Amazing, character-filled renovation and update of old 90’s bathroom, laundry and kitchen in Kogarah
The team at Abode Renovations recently completed the transformation of a unit in Kogarah, including the installation of a new kitchen with combined laundry and Butler’s pantry, bathroom renovation, new doors and fixtures giving this unit built in the 1990’s real character.
Importantly, the owner’s unique style shone through in her selection of cabinetry, fixtures, fittings, appliances and other decorative items. The result was stunning!
New Kitchen Renovation
The kitchen cabinets were a polyurethane,profile cupboards (Polytec Lismore profile) in Dulux Sepal Satin. A far cry from the flat, white, laminate cabinets that were put in when the unit was built.
On the benchtops we used 40mm Caesarstone in Atlantic Salt. To add further statement we offset the stone bench with white subway tiles (75 x 300mm) and the colour-matched cabinet that pick up on one of the many colours in the benchtop.
Combined Laundry and Butler’s Pantry
Where there was once just an ordinary unit laundry, we transformed the space to add a functional Butler’s pantry – a must-have in any renovation.
To create a sense of flow, the cabinetry in the laundry matched the kitchen. The addition of open cupboards gave the owner easy access to special crockery and tableware.
The purpose of the butler’s pantry is so every-day appliances can be left out for easy access however, being hidden from sight, leave the kitchen clutter-free.
An under bench washing machine and wall-mounted dryer take up as little space as possible but means it’s all close at hand on washing day.
New Bathroom Renovation
Behind the on-trend timber barn door, it was out with the old-fashioned apricot and white to make way for a stylish bathroom renovation with a contemporary monochromatic colour scheme.
The client chose a dramatic black and white floor tile (GNS Keys Fleur Black Matt 200 x 200mm) as the base of her fabulous new bathroom.
The floor tiles were complimented by black subway tiles in the shower wall. The remaining walls were tiled in a satin white 300 x 600mm tile that then allowed her custom vanity to be the feature.
The stunning timber vanity top brought a sense of warmth to the space and complimented the timber barn door and flooring throughout the rest of the unit.
Quality chrome tapware from Cee Jay’s Glamour and Harmonee ranges added functionality as well as a contemporary design aesthetic. The addition of a black light fixture added yet more character.
Gorgeous Turkish towels and a black electric toothbrush (yes, the client managed to find one), completed this beautiful bathroom renovation.
