The bench is in a Lumicor resin finish, with tiles to match the kitchen opening, made by Australian firm Baresque.
The pantry splashback was created using a unique touch: patterned wallpaper covered by clear glass. This clever process made an affordable custom finish possible for the clients.
The colours here are lime green, charcoal and dark teak in the laminate. The cupboards are textured, teak-coloured Laminex with the cupboard handles powder-coated to match.
‘For the sink area we used a textured steel with a scratch pattern to hide scratches,’ Mimmi says.
‘This is a family with younger children still at primary school. And we chose a steel windowsill too.’
The ’70s inspired shelf is made of Craftwood, which was heat formed and sprayed with polyurethane.
‘This was bespoke and done in-house. You can’t get those objects off the shelf.’
An existing large bay window was retained but, being in poor condition, was coated in metallic paint. The ceiling also proved to be a challenge, Mimmi says.
‘It had some asbestos in it. And, in fact, there turned out to be four ceilings up there. Previous owners had just kept adding on ceilings.’
