‘The red and white colour combination is fun and vibrant. It really draws you into the kitchen,’ said Urban Timber’s Jeff Phillips. ‘And the high gloss finish on the cupboard doors looks spectacular with the black and white checkered floor.’
The kitchen features a two-door pantry with vintage port-hole venting, ribbed glass cupboards above the benchtop, and drawer/cupboard combinations below.
‘The solid timber frame, with panel front construction was common in kitchen design until the 1960s.’ said Urban Timber’s Shane King. ‘We installed solid timber drawers of Tasmanian oak running on waxed oak runners.’
The aluminium edged countertop, boomerang cupboard handles, and vintage design hinges add authenticity to the 50’s diner look.
‘Laminated plastic kitchen surfaces were new in the 50s and 60s replacing the solid benchtops common until the mid-nineteenth century,’ said Shane.
The kitchen is completed by cherry-red Smeg appliances and the Suddick’s carefully sourced collectables, not to mention their super-cute beagle, Tuji.
‘Urban Timber made our dream come true,’ said Heidi. ‘They went above and beyond in helping us and we are so grateful. Our kitchen is more beautiful than we had ever thought possible and our friends and family are amazed at its finish.’
