Kyle and Leslie's kitchen is a luxurious sanctuary of natural elegance. With timber-inspired Oak Woodgrain Kinsman cabinets and arched grey travertine-look counters, the design integrates a warm color palette and metallic Burnt Bronze Lip Pull handles. The 3.5-meter-long island serves as both a gathering spot and a cleaning zone, while the integrated sink, Electrolux dishwasher and Vintec wine fridge, combine in a seamless blend of form and function.
“We wanted to focus on functionality as well as good looks, explains Leslie. Our design aims to provide plenty of storage while celebrating a neutral colour palette with texture. We want to appeal to a range of buyers, from families to those who will use this room for entertaining.”

The 3-meter-long curved island includes a Hafele Gunmetal sink and tap, and integrated Smeg dishwasher, while the two Smeg Linea ovens, integrated Vintec wine fridges and a concealed pull-out pantry make for an entertaining win.
“We wanted to create a kitchen that is bold, sophisticated, and functional, says Leah. We love to inject colour into our designs, and this was no exception, we really wanted to create ‘wow factor’ as we know that kitchens sell houses.”

HOUSE 5: Eliza and Liberty
Eliza and Liberty's kitchen is a bold and visually striking space that commands attention. The design features an eye-catching orange Smeg Portofino Freestanding Cooker and Canopy Rangehood, set against Oyster Grey Matt joinery and Brushed Brass handles from Kinsman. The expansive 4-meter island and L-shaped layout offer ample storage and flow, highlighted by Cosentino Vk04 Grafite benchtops and dual splashback zones. With a focus on functionality, the kitchen includes Design Side drawers, a Cooking Agent unit, and a separate butler’s pantry for additional storage and organisation.
“We have zero experience in designing kitchens so the guidance from Kinsman was crucial for us, explains Eliza. We were able to play with colour and create a look that is modern and exciting- the pop of orange from our Smeg appliances mixed with the timeless grey joinery is perfect for what we wanted to achieve,” said Eliza.
