polytec is used in homes and businesses all around Australia where design and practicality is imperative. This beautiful home by The Maker Designer Kitchens has utilised polytec to showcase what Australian-made products can really do when simplicity and durability are key.
The brief for this luxury kitchen renovation was to bring to life a social space that includes all the essentials for a place that’s a joy to cook and entertain while reflective of the location and lifestyle.
The owners of this home wanted curved cabinetry that was not the typical all-white kitchen that you expect to see in a coastal home and this is where polytec Steccawood battens came in. With the realistic warmth of timber, ideal for wall or ceiling applications in vertical or horizontal configurations, these prefinished battens created strong directional lines that added a striking feature to the space.
A two-toned cabinetry design was combined using Aston White Smooth along with Prime Oak Woodmatt in Melamine doors and Steccawood 17x34mm half-round battens which helped to create and enhance the striking curved island bench.
The Clients opted for a fully integrated dishwasher and fridge which allowed the cabinetry colour scheme to take centre stage and does not distract from the hero in this design which is the Steccawood island. This kitchen was also designed to be handleless – the drawers have a Bevel Edges profile and the overhead cabinetry was installed with recessed rails for easy grip to open.
Paired with Caesarstone Osprey 3141 benchtops that have a fine texture grain (much like sand at the beach), the kitchen is a textured, seamless and stunning showcase of design and craftsmanship.
Made from E–Zero MR MDF or LDF and wrapped in decorative overlay Steccawood battens impart the realism, warmth, and character of timber, providing a cost-effective solution.
