French Provincial kitchens are a perennial favourite for kitchen renovations – they’re elegant and charming, and add a warmth and character that resonates with anyone lucky enough to spend time in one.
This is a style that conjures thoughts of an idyllic rural lifestyle half a world away, but it works just as well in a house or apartment.
And these days there are some wonderful interpretations of French Provincial itself – from familiar ornate features to more simple – yet inspired – modern versions.
That being said, the foundations remain constant.
The colour palate of French-style kitchens haven’t strayed too far from their origins – awash with antique whites, creams and greys, as well as other soft tones like eggshell blue and delicate shades of pale green.
Materials are generally traditional and include beautifully crafted wooden cabinetry, stone bench tops, ceramic tiling, oversized ovens and range hoods, and wood or stone flooring.
Antique or replica items like decorative brass taps, faucets, hooks and rails add to the sense of authenticity.
You might also choose ornate handles on cabinets with glass or profiled doors, alongside corbels, turned posts, capping, moulding and mantels over free-standing cookers flanked by fluted columns.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
People love the kitchen, and are blown away with the transformation. And for me it’s not just beautiful, every part is so functional.
