Valley View Double Island
This kitchen was created for two very keen home cooks who live on a beautiful acreage property in Main Ridge, on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula and frequently entertain friends and family. The original kitchen in this space was a cramped, u-shape layout and had limited preparation space for the homeowners. In this new kitchen design the layout was completely re-thought and two island benches were created. As part of this redesign, what used to be a walk-in-pantry was opened up to create an appliance nook and extra drawer storage. This kitchen now easily accommodates two cooks at the same time and the homeowners are able to face the dining area and interact with their guests while cooking. A feature bulkhead, clad in timber, was created to accommodate a powerful Qasair rangehood and pendant lighting over the new main island bench which is home to the flush-mounted Miele gas cooktop and is centre stage for the culinary entertainment.
