real life story: Rebecca’s kitchen

By KaboodleU-Shape

Rebecca Ciorciari wanted to transform her kitchen into a timeless and open space!

Rebecca decided to update her original kitchen as it was 20 years old and in much need of a facelift. After making the decision to renovate, she is so happy with the overall look and feel of the new kitchen, and couldn’t be happier with the result! 

What made you want to change your original kitchen/ what was the brief?

The kitchen was over 20 years old, so it was in much need of a facelift.

What made you chose the layout of your kitchen and how has it improved your experience in the kitchen? 

We wanted to really open up the space by removing the dated and dysfunctional benchtop configuration, which we did by creating a U-shaped kitchen. We also wanted the space to have a consistent flow, that integrated seamlessly with our open plan living area.

What were the benefits of using a kaboodle kitchen?

A good quality product with value for money.

Were you going for a particular colour palette?

Yes, we wanted something white, bright and neutral. Something that will stand the test of time, and I think we certainly achieved this!

Why did you select our macaroon doors in the modern profile?

The classic white tones and silk finish of the macaroon doors worked perfectly with the colour scheme of the rest of the home. We chose the modern profile doors as we wanted a classic, seamless look, and thought that a door with no profile would allow the benchtop to be the main feature.

Why did you choose our biancoccino benchtop? 

We liked how it emulated a similar look to that of marble (without the maintenance and price tag of course!)

What’s your favourite part of your new kaboodle kitchen?

How open the space feels now! We now love cooking in there!

How has your new kitchen maximised the space?

We have extra storage space and also extra bench space for prepping and cooking.

Is there anything else you’d like to share?

We are so happy with the overall look and feel of our new kitchen. We couldn’t be happier with the result!
