Dezignatek Thermoform cabinetry in white gloss creates a striking contrast with darker natural surfaces in this Christchurch kitchen.
The brief for this stunning Christchurch kitchen was to create some wow factor and show the latest materials and hardware. Designer Kirsty Davis from Hagley Kitchens also needed to design a space which would allow the family to sit around the island benchtop. With the home nestled in behind an old quarry, she looked for materials that created a connection to the home’s natural environment.
Kirsty chose to use Dezignatek Thermoform in white gloss on the cabinetry to provide a crisp contrast to the granite benchtops, concrete block and natural timber veneer featured in the kitchen. She commented that a compelling reason for the Thermoform product was its durability and the superior finish compared to lacquer. Thermoform won’t chip or scratch — an appealing feature for a busy family.
Another key aspect of the design brief was to create continuity with a walk-in pantry and laundry that used similar materials and finishes to the main kitchen. The same Dezignatek Thermoform in gloss white was used for the fronts of all cabinetry, ensuring a consistent look.
The end result is a perfect balance of practicality and style, with striking white Thermoform cabinetry bringing a bright contrast to the designer kitchen, while also providing a robust surface that will withstand wear and tear for years to come.
