Llyween and Robert’s kitchen is at the heart of the house. Robert is a carpenter himself and the solid wood feature bench in NZ Native Black Maire reflects his passion for timber. The dark wrap around kitchen bench is a Laminex Solid Surface called Tierra. This bench has an Ikon sink set into it (flush with top surface). Llyween’s choice of yellow adds a nice touch of personality to the kitchen.
Finnish Birch ply is used on the large cupboard fronts and silky black Polaris adorns the lower cabinet faces (Polaris is a soft touch scratch and fingerprint resistant High Pressure Laminate on a core of Birch ply with a very attractive edge detail).
All cabinetry is handle free with push to open mechanisms from Blum. The handle free drawers work particularly well when it comes to the rubbish drawer under the sink. With a nudge from a knee kitchen scraps can be popped into bins without having to touch the front. Strip lighting under top cabinetry illuminates work spaces.
