This week on Reno Rumble saw two perfect scores awarded to two very different Freedom Kitchens; an edgy Industrial style versus an elegant Hamptons kitchen. The judges couldn’t find fault with either! Let’s delve into how both the Redbacks and the Blue Tongues did it…
Industrial: Blue Tongues Carly & Leighton were briefed to transform Tara’s outdated 1940s kitchen into one with a relaxed industrial aesthetic and plenty of storage.
Inspired by the industrial warehouse living of Manhattan, they opted for strong matt black cabinetry and brought in timber elements to create a sense of warmth. The butler’s pantry and integrated dishwasher kept appliances hidden from view, whilst the added textures of Caesarstone benchtops, transparent glass splashback and metal factory pendant lights ensured a tightly edited result.
Tara says it’s a completely different dynamic at home now: “I can entertain, whereas I didn’t enjoy it before because using more than two pots at the same time caused space issues! With the central bench family and friends can now sit there whilst I finish cooking which is perfect. It’s a much more social and beautiful space.”
Hamptons: The Redbacks, Kyal and Kara, were tasked with turning Cathryn’s dark, pokey and very uninviting space into one with the sophisticated, country charm of the Hamptons.
Their perfectly executed design featured a neutral colour scheme of classic white Shaker doors and Clam Shell Caesarstone benchtops. Detailed open shelving, vintage inspired pendants and plenty of natural light were the finishing touches for this relaxed yet sophisticated Hamptons kitchen.
Cathryn says her new Freedom Kitchen is now part of the living and dining area and has opened up the whole space. “I didn’t enjoy being in my old kitchen, but I love being in the new one. I can now cook and still talk to my daughter and visitors.”
