Amazing Kitchens and Designs (AKD) is a West Australian, family-owned and operated company that has been manufacturing cabinetry for nine years.
The company’s scope of creation includes all household and industrial cabinetry such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundries, entertainment suites and bedroom furniture.
AKD has distinguished itself within the industry by successfully completing thousands of residential renovations, demonstrating it is well equipped to take on a large variety of different types and volumes of work, while delivering the highest standards and quality.
Having recently acquired this property, the owners wanted the centrally located kitchen to reflect their lifestyle, and have the natural surroundings clearly visible through the pre-existing window.
Taking cues from the property’s location – nestled on the side of a nature reserve – the challenge was to blend style and luxury with greenery and secondary light that entered the kitchen through the branches of the natural flora. This required clever thought and consideration when it came not only to the actual layout, but also to the planning of colours and light sources.
Semi-reflective surfaces on both the cabinets and benches would allow for the effective disbursement of the natural light entering the kitchen, as well as the artificial light used to highlight certain areas of aesthetic importance.
Placement of appliances, use of hardware and location of light sources all contributed to accomplish the desired outcome – an attractive kitchen that is highly functional and practical.
Along with the clever design, it is the fixtures and fittings that result in a successful outcome. Entirely made in the AKD factory, the carcass incorporates Australian-made board products from Politec and Worldwide Timbers, while quality hardware from Hettich, Hafele and Galvin Hardware were selected to achieve high quality and functionality.
Adoring the end result, the owners commented they admire the beauty of the kitchen and the value it brings to this special part of the home.
