Quite a contrast … the kitchen in Warrandyte before the renovation.
For this superb renovation in Warrandyte, our clients wanted to create a feeling of space and openness – bringing the outdoors inside – while maintaining the footprint of the existing kitchen.
There were design challenges to overcome, thanks to some load bearing walls that couldn’t be removed. But we were able to deliver a new space that completely transformed the kitchen’s look and feel.
The previous kitchen had been solid timber with a heavy, dark wood grain. It seemed small and cramped, with poor storage and a tight cooking and preparation area.
To make the space feel more open and less cluttered, we square-set the room and came up with a clever design that meant the renovated kitchen would not require overhead cabinetry.
And this is vital in creating the sense of openness and clean space that our clients requested.
In place of overhead cabinets, we chose a feature tile for the whole back wall. Although the kitchen is mainly white, this white patterned tile adds beautiful texture and depth to the room.
No two kitchen renovations are the same, and in this case our client’s preference was for cabinetry with handles. To continue the uncluttered look, we designed a way for the handles to blend in with the cabinets.
We powder-coated handles to create a “semi-handleless” look.
The clients love the way handles work for everyday use. They are practical yet don’t detract from the streamlined look we were aiming for.
Our clients wanted a marble look, but without the care and maintenance that natural marble requires.
Neolith offers a beautiful marble appearance with excellent durability and ease of care. With its fabulous looks and silky textured finish, the island has become the hub of the kitchen, perfect for sitting around with family and friends.

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.

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 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
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’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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
