The previous kitchen wasn’t functional or efficient and had two islands. It was also in a style at odds with the owners’ vision.
Key to this kitchen renovation was going to be a butler’s pantry to improve functionality. To achieve this we reconfigured the whole kitchen space and added a new wall to incorporate the pantry.
Typically, true Hampton-style designs have moulding about the cabinetry, but the low ceilings meant this could not be done.
Instead, we added numerous other design features to fit the Hamptons brief – including forward skirting on the island bench, profile pilasters and a marble benchtop with decorative lamb’s tongue edge.
The lovely subway tile splashback in white is a classic Hamptons feature.
Bathrooms and Laundry
Rosemount also renovated the apartment’s bathrooms and laundry in the new style.
We created custom vanities to go with the style and colour scheme, with lovely features such as the profile doors and handles.
A combined laundry/bathroom needed to be completely re-designed as it was too small and pokey.We moved a wall to create a larger space, which turned the room into a full-sized bathroom with plenty of space for a functional laundry and ample storage.
Throughout the apartment, the builder made a number of changes, including adding a new floor and skirting boards – and adapting staircases – to reflect the Hamptons décor.
The TV unit needed to be custom built to accommodate the services and plumbing (see image above to understand what we were dealing with – quite a tangle).
We designed a stylish cabinet that looks fabulous as a TV and storage unit, but also conceals the services. Now you wouldn’t even know they were there.
The sides of the unit are hinged, which provides easy access to the services when required. A real win-win.

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.
Our designer was just fantastic. He wanted our kitchen to come to fruition as much as we did.
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.
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.
Our decision to contract Rosemount resulted in a high end result, within budget and on time. The company’s wonderful team had the expertise, experience and dedication to guide the project from start to finish making the renovation a great experience and not a burden.
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.
Daniel & Anastasia
People love the kitchen, and are blown away with the transformation. And for me it’s not just beautiful, every part is so functional.
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 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.
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.
