David Slade, part of the Rosemount Kitchens design team, recently created something truly special for our clients in their high-rise apartment in St Kilda.
The clients’ brief was to open up the kitchen/living space and to make full use of the views over the city and Albert Park.
The original kitchen was half the size, and the island faced the opposite direction, so we removed a wall and a small unused office to open up the space and create an integrated kitchen, dining and living area.
This impressive kitchen renovation presented some challenges, as the ceilings were at two different heights. But the clients were very happy with a finished kitchen in which the ceiling was level.
Key Kitchen Features:
There were a number of items that were very important to incorporate into the striking design:
The before kitchen was a poorly designed, small white 2 pack gloss kitchen with a marble bench.
The newly designed kitchen is the complete opposite, in both colour and design.
The island bench now faces the floor to ceiling windows, and those wonderful views over the city. The kitchen is also much bigger, allowing for integrated appliances and plenty of space to cook and entertain with family and friends.
Aspects the clients love:
SERVO-DRIVE by Blum on all drawers, to give a handle-less look. (The only handles are on the integrated fridges and pantry)
The pull out drawers in the pantry for easy access to all food items
The Smeg twin rangehood
The smoked grey mirrored splashbacks, reflecting the views from the city and the high gloss black cabinetry reflecting the views of Albert Park.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
People love the kitchen, and are blown away with the transformation. And for me it’s not just beautiful, every part is so functional.
Our designer was just fantastic. He wanted our kitchen to come to fruition as much as we did.
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.
