Creating a kitchen for a celebrity chef could intimidate the most experienced designer; Katia Slogrove of Germancraft Cabinets was ready for the challenge, however, seeing huge potential for inside-out beauty in this unique space.

Laminex EssaStone benchtops (Ash Concrete in colour) and flat black door and drawer fronts make for a classic combination in the kitchen façade, but the use of Laminex Impressions Textured Surfaces in Sublime Teak for the cabinet internals adds a wonderfully warm detail to the otherwise achromatic scheme.

As seen in this kitchen, the Laminex Impressions textured surfaces range is inspired by the beauty of natural timber, but has the practical and economical advantages of low pressure melamine (LPM).

In panel applications such as this, the product is available in a choice of two distinct finishes (Riven and Nuance) which feature realistic grain structures and a wonderfully organic aesthetic. Katia chose a Nuance finish for this particular project, adding a charmingly natural look and feel to the gorgeous tones of the Sublime Teak colouring.

Learn more about the entire range of Laminex Impressions textured surfaces here, and look out for Katia’s kitchen at this year’s KBDi Designer Awards Gala 2017. The design has been nominated as a finalist in the Small Kitchens Queensland category (see all other entries here), and we wish Katia much luck with this very special entry.
