If you are fortunate enough to live in a traditional Queenslander home there will no doubt come a time where the kitchen will need an upgrade. How do you design a new kitchen but hang on to the unique charm of the Queenslander.
Even though the Queenslander is a traditional home there are a few options that will still suit. Here are a few ideas:
The Hamptons style is casual, relaxed but done in a classic and very sophisticated way. It is a style that has become quite popular as it gives an alternative to the sleek ultra modern alternative. Hamptons is a versatile style, however the classic Hampton style would include white cabinetry, a large island bench, subway tiles and dark floors. Maybe a double oven and white crockery on display.
Modern styles work well in Queenslanders when mixed with some elements such as industrial seating, a unique splash back or copper pendants.
BRING THE OUTDOORS IN
Most Queenslanders come with the traditional verandah. Eating outdoors in our glorious weather is a Queensland tradition. If possible, have the kitchen near the verandah and maybe include some bi-fold doors to make it all one area. If this isn’t possible, consider a mini kitchen on the verandah space. You could include a built in BBQ.
Choosing a kitchen style for your Queenslander requires a bit of planning and researching to embrace and enhance the traditional style. Of course, Everything Cabinets would love to help you design your kitchen for your Queenslander. http://www.everythingcabinets.com.au/contact/
