or over 30 years, Western Cabinets
has been creating custom-designed
cabinetry for kitchens, bathrooms,
laundries and other areas. The family-
owned and operated business designs and locally
manufactures quality custom cabinetry, from
traditional to modern styles.
The company’s designers and cabinetmakers
are some of the most creative and experienced
in Australia, earning the business a multitude of
awards over the years.
Western Cabinets specialises in both new
homes and renovations, and understands the
difference in needs between the two. For kitchens,
the company offers the complete solution, with
cabinetry, benchtops, splashbacks, appliances
and all your building and trade requirements.
The home-owners purchased this 1950s,
architecturally-designed home for its great
emphasis on the modernist movement of that era.
The brief for this kitchen renovation was to retain
the home’s period style while reworking the interior
layout to accommodate today’s greater luxuries.
As keen renovators with a great passion for
architecture and design, it was imperative to
the owners that they work closely with Western
Cabinets on the creation of their kitchen.
The new floor plan needed to be open and free-
flowing to benefit from the newly appointed outdoor
entertaining area, which overlooked the pool,
outdoor studio and yard.
Smart planning and reworking of interior
structures created an open-plan kitchen within
the central hub of the home. It was designed to
accommodate a large preparation worktop with an
abundance of drawer storage that worked as
a casual breakfast bar, and also opened out onto the
new outdoor entertaining area.
A sleek concealed walk-in pantry/scullery area
was built-in alongside the refrigeration and ovens,
maintaining clean lines yet functional features.
The materials complement the modernist era of
the home. A striking timber veneer, recognisable
in 1950s furniture design Palisando, was used
alongside dark brown tones and smoked mirror to
contrast the vivid white walls and timber cladding.
The outcome works in complete harmony
with the era of this home’s architecture, while
collaborating with current technology and
Western Cabinets’ creations are custom-designed to suit each client’s needs,
resulting in unique kitchens as individual as you and your home.
