egarding the client as part of the
team, rather than just the customer,
is a key part of the renovation process
for Albourne Projects.
The company chooses to let its clients
get involved with the project, working together
to achieve the best possible outcome while
still managing the renovation from conception
Albourne Projects makes sure that there
is one primary point of contact through the
entire process, and so creates a streamlined
experience with an emphasis on communication
with each client.
With 30 years of experience working in
the building industry, there is no renovation
too complex for this West Australian-owned
and operated company.
The owner of this home decided to transform
a classic 1960s laundry room that had laid dormant
for years into a second kitchen that would not only
be practical, but also add value to their home.
As with all the company’s renovations, Albourne
Projects worked closely with the client to design and
build a kitchen that met their individual needs while
also exuding a contemporary style.
The original fitout was completely removed and
stripped back to reveal bare brick walls and floor.
Window frames were removed but the window
recesses (and a door opening) were retained and
retrofitted with Aneeta sashless windows, a style
that somewhat evokes the structure’s era.
A glass French door was selected to visually
connect with the home’s lounge and kitchen areas.
Rather than sand and cement plastering, walls were
dry-lined using wet-area gyprock plasterboard, for
its insulation and noise-reducing benefits.
Keeping the design simple yet stylish was
important to the client and their young family,
so materials that were of high quality yet long-
lasting were selected.
The kitchen cabinetry combined custom-built
and flat-pack materials to stay within budget, with
the hard-wearing stone benchtop complementing
the kitchen’s colour scheme. Heated flooring was
installed, adding a touch of luxury to the space.
To add a point of difference, the clients requested
glaziers Cooling Brothers Glass Company extend
the splashback to bulkhead level, creating a clean,
minimalistic finish to the area.
The completed kitchen boasts modern styling
for the young family, with plenty of natural light
brightening the effective, durable design.
Transform an unused area of your home into a practical yet stylish
kitchen with the help of renovations specialists Albourne Projects.
