A number of elements immediately stand out in this redesigned Camberwell kitchen – the overhanging pendant light, bronze rangehood and large island bench.
All are very deliberate design features, particularly the bench style suggested by Rosemount’s kitchen designer.
He encouraged the client to go square – as opposed to a more traditional long island – for several reasons.
“The square design filled the space better and helped define the perimeter of the kitchen,” says our designer.
“It also allowed for more work surface and storage than you’d get on a conventional three-metre long bench.”
This bench runs for just under 2.3m opposite the sink and hotplate, and for two metres opposite the fridge – giving the client almost 4.3m of bench at her disposal.
“Also, if the kids want to come and prepare a snack they can use the bench opposite the fridge and pantry while the client uses the area opposite the sink. And they don’t get in each other’s way.”
The bench is topped by a 60mm Caesarstone “Fresh Concrete 4001” edge profile with a satin/matt finish that complements the gloss of the door material.
Sirius Range Hood
The Sirius rangehood is concealed under a custom-made cabinet/box from the Laminex Innovations range. The Laminex material, finished in a brushed bronze colour, is also used as a shadowline along the sink run under the 20mm Caesarstone top.
The Innovations range is a designer range of laminate finishes based mainly around metallic finishes, like the one used here. The material captures and reflects light really nicely. It’s a change of material and colour that adds to the overall design, and adds some warmth to the ktichen.
The Crown Minor suspension light is from Mondo Luce in South Yarra.
It’s a pendant light that completes the kitchen in high style, and also works well in proportion to the bench.
Using a cheaper fitting would have undermined the overall design, and the same goes for the stools. We suggest to clients that they factor in these costs as part of the overall kitchen budget so they can have a cohesive and elegant design.
Rosemount is a premium product and they should be very proud of the results they produce. Our neighbours walked in and just went ‘wow’. And that wow factor is the difference.
We did a full kitchen and bathroom renovation. Everyone within the company is fantastic, from the reps to the managers/owners to the tradesmen. We couldn’t have asked for a better team to look after this build.

People love the kitchen, and are blown away with the transformation. And for me it’s not just beautiful, every part is so functional.
We have referred loads of people to Rosemount. They weren’t the cheapest company but for me it’s about the quality of the product. You get what you pay for.
I’m sure we could have done our reno cheaper (although we did have a more expensive quote), but we couldn’t have done it better or had a smoother trouble free experience with such great trades and final result.
This was our first time renovating, so it’s fair to say there was a little bit of trepidation on our part. But our experience was very positive and we’re thrilled with our new kitchen.
We’re thrilled with how the kitchen renovation has turned out. It’s gone from the darkest to the lightest room in the house. It looks so beautiful and I just love it.
The quality of the build cannot be faulted and the level of service we have experienced from Rosemount has been exceptionally good. Everyone we spoke to over the phone and those that visited our house were a delight to deal with.
Tony and Michelle
Rosemount were by far the best of the trades we dealt with in our whole renovation, and continue to be. And we had a great kitchen designer who was clearly excited about doing something a bit different and edgier. He really brought some of my ideas in the kitchen to life.
Rosemount made this an easy and mostly seamless undertaking for us and the results are significantly better than we anticipated. To say we are delighted with our new kitchen is a gross understatement. It is just sensational.
