SUE & MARK
Sue wanted an open and spacious kitchen that would accommodate family life, be practical but also stunning. The kitchen needed to complement, not overwhelm the beautiful coastal view. After approaching a few kitchen companies that failed to inspire her, she was recommended by a friend to contact System Six Kitchens.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
We spoke to Sue about her kitchen, and she let us know the inspiration behind her design…
“Our recent move here has given us this lovely large space for our new kitchen. We already knew what worked for us but we also wanted this one to be pretty special. The flow and practicality of a kitchen is very important to me as well as the aesthetics, and System Six Kitchen Designer Carly was able to help me visualise that and put it into place.
When we first designed this kitchen, we had to consider the social space. It had to be a family room, where we could cook and entertain with ease. Central to that requirement was a large island, big enough to sit at, be a bar, a prep space and somewhere to rest your elbows and take in the view.”
We asked Sue about her decision to choose a Bellever door with a Gloss finish…
“I knew that I wanted something minimal. I wanted a flat front and something that reflected the view so that no matter which direction you were facing you would catch a glimpse. It needed to reflect the view back into the room and that's where the gloss idea came from."
Sue also filled us in on the reason for her colour choices…
“As for the colours we chose, we wanted something soft that would complement the natural colours outside and not draw the eye away, hence the colours Putty and Storm Blue."
WHY SYSTEM SIX KITCHENS?
We asked Sue why she chose System Six for her project…
“Mark and I went to a few kitchen designers but felt slightly intimidated, not listened to, and our needs, not to mention our budget, not met.
I called up a friend who had recently had a huge kitchen fitted by System Six, there was no hesitation from her, she was very complimentary about the quality of the kitchen and the company and made the recommendation immediately."
“If we wanted to discuss options or visit the showroom to look at anything we were always made to feel welcome. We visited the showroom many times and they were always super helpful allowing us to take home samples for as long as we needed. Nothing was ever a problem for System Six. The team were friendly and so accommodating."
EXPERIENCE WITH CARLY
Sue described her experience with System Six Designer, Carly…
“Carly was fantastic, she listened, helped, and advised. From a logistical point of view, she was a complete expert. She pointed out some minor issues we had with our design that we overlooked at first, her input was invaluable.
We made a lot of changes throughout our journey and Carly would promptly send me the new images, I never felt that any changes would have been problematic. If I was ever unsure about any aspect of the proposed design I could contact her easily, she was always available, if not by phone, then by e-mail.
Carly did a site visit to get final measurements and spacings right. That was really helpful as she could visualise the design in situ and use her considerable knowledge to fine tune everything.
From the very beginning, I felt confident and at ease with System Six and that for me was really important. Any queries I had were addressed happily, with speed and without issue. I wasn't worried or anxious at any stage. My trust and faith were well placed.
The room is such a wonderful social space, everyone who walks in loves it. My family and friends naturally congregate around the beautiful island, the kitchen is all we had hoped for and more."
