Kitchen Renovation Story | Wantirna, VIC

November 01, 2021 2 min read

Our customer in Wantirna just came back from New York. As an interior designer, he wanted to create an industrial decorating style kitchen in Melbourne's new house. With stripped timber floorboards or concrete floors, exposed brick walls and utilitarian materials, he realized the perfect fusion of modernity and rustic. Let's share this urban look of the kitchen designed for functionality for years to come.

The Challenge

Building a termite system before the renovation is probably the best way to avoid termite damage, a serious problem considering this kitchen has a decaying wooden ceiling and it will experience termite damage. It's important to choose the right resolution depending on several factors including the composition of this house, the size of the construction project, and the budget.

The Vision
Our customer hoped to rebuild his classic warehouse apartments in New York with raw textures, exposed elements and metal fixtures and finishes. A rustic finish is a key feature of the industrial decorating style, with reclaimed wood, layers of chipped paint and simple furniture.

The Team

Our customer tried sticking to a base palette of different shades of greys, from light to gunmetal, black and white accents warmed up with wood and warm tones from brick and leather. He decided to choose Arova as his reno partner and purchased a butler sink with pull out kitchen tapware to decorate his kitchen.

The Result

As the most industrial-inspired and warehouse homes, this kitchen has a minimal and often very neutral base colour palette, with colour added in the form of accents like artwork, tapware, textiles, rugs and crockery. Our customer was very satisfied with the effect after the renovation.

Capital Gain: maximised value increase in the short term
