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.

I just love this kitchen. It’s worked out perfectly. We had a builder working on the rest of the house and he couldn’t believe how well the kitchen was made and put in, and the after sales service from Rosemount was fantastic.
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.
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.
A complete kitchen renovation was performed with as little disruption as possible to our household. Having had plenty of work done around the house over the years, I recognise and appreciate quality work, and Rosemount provide that in abundance. They’re also terrific people to deal with.
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.
Sue and Howard Epstein
Rosemount’s service was outstanding from start to finish. We love our new kitchen and couldn’t be happier with the experience we had. I would highly recommend Rosemount without hesitation.
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
Our designer was just fantastic. He wanted our kitchen to come to fruition as much as we did.
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.
People love the kitchen, and are blown away with the transformation. And for me it’s not just beautiful, every part is so functional.
