Our brief from the clients for this kitchen renovation in Parkhurst, Johannesburg – was ‘the brighter the colours, the better!’. They also wanted to keep their existing steel cupboards, still from the original kitchen when the house was built. So we got to work and refurbished the cupboards, and looked at making the kitchen & laundry space as functional as possible, reconfiguring the layout & adding an L-shaped island – perfect for catching up on emails or keeping whoever is busy in the kitchen company! The end result feels bold, but cohesive, and has definitely become the centre point of the home.
