Kilsyth South DIY Kitchen Renovation

Kilsyth South DIY Kitchen Renovation

This is the third kitchen these clients have renovated. Their previous renovation, a diy kitchen in an investment property sold them on working with Kitchen Shack once again.  Not only did they find Kitchen Shack affordable but impressed with the one-on-one personalised service from design to completion.

Although the before kitchen (as above) was functional it was dated and lacked modern features like pot drawers that the clients desired. Most older style kitchens have cupboards below and above benchtops like this example. The modern kitchen maximises both depth and height, so drawers are more common. Let’s be honest who hasn’t crouched down trying to reach into the back of a cupboard to retrieve an item only to find it is past it’s expiry date! A pull out drawer is more accessible and clearly visible for all storage.

With their home located in the east of Melbourne, it was only a short drive to the Kilsyth Showroom to re-design their kitchen. Here Michael, (Kilsyth Designer), set about creating a budget kitchen design to modernise and add additional functionality incorporating drawers instead of cupboards.

Working to the client’s budget and designing in the same U Shape floorspace as the previous kitchen meant there would be additional savings in flooring costs and simple replacement of tiling.

The Shaker white satin cabinetry matched with the striking darker YDL Milky Way benchtops and black slimline handles makes this kitchen modern and bright.  The enhancements of the stainless steel and black tap tie all features in perfectly.

The clients love their new space and even commented “we couldn’t believe Michael’s attention to detail”. Even the now square benchtop to ensure that extra modern touch further enhances this beautiful kitchen. DIY Kitchen Renovations like this one can add enormous value to the home and now ready for modern cooking.

Kilsyth South is located 30km east of Melbourne CBD. It has a population of 2,988 (2016 Census) and older style brick homes built back 1954 are now ripe for renovation.
