Orbit’s Get The Look: Kitchen Edition
Whether you're cooking up a storm, eating or entertaining family and friends, your kitchen should be a space you want to spend time in- and a well-planned out kitchen can help you achieve that.
Over the last 42 years, Orbit Homes has maintained a strong partnership with Laminex and together both design teams have developed a beautiful offering of laminate for benchtops, cabinetry and panels- from engineered stones to acrylic surfaces for new homes across the East Coast of Australia.
As the center hub of most homes, there are several elements to a kitchen to consider when it comes to design palettes and materials. Choices in splashback, wall, island bench, benchtop as well as cabinet colours all play a key role in enhancing the beautiful design of your kitchen and ensuring that there is a seamless ‘flow’ between your indoor and outdoor spaces.
To help you get started on building and designing your dream kitchen, Orbit has created four ‘Get The Look’ guides from our most popular display kitchens.
Harpley’s Aspendale 237 Kitchen
Contemporary, chic, and clean, this immaculate kitchen is designed for the modern Australian family.
With the contrasting colour palette of glossy whites and black elements- this kitchen alludes to a sense of yin and yang, complementary in its nature alongside the subtle touches of greenery.
Through the inclusion of 1025mm long banks of Laminex decorated board open shelves to the overhead cabinetry, the space is divided- creating depth and structure to the functional kitchen. Furthermore, with overheads in the colour of black and nuance finish, the choice of open shelving allows you to incorporate storage pieces and ornamental elements based on your daily go-to's and needs.
This impressive and inviting kitchen layout for our Aspendale 237 home design is interconnected with the outdoor living area- ultimately magnifying your hosting and entertaining possibilities. Currently, on display at our Harpley estate in Werribee, this designer kitchen takes Victoria’s contemporary family living to the next level.
Newhaven’s Sorrento 398 Kitchen
Within the open space floor plan, the deluxe galley kitchen includes a spacious walk-in pantry, traditional profile doors, and clear glass door inserts to the overhead cupboards- a show stopper in its own right.
Complemented by crisp white subway tiles, a 40mm Caesarstone benchtop in Noble Grey and Laminex Polar White kitchen joinery- this expansive kitchen brings about a sense of openness and calmness that contrasts beautifully with the choice of dark timber flooring.
Botanical's Aspendale 252 Kitchen
A local yet sophisticated interior design style, the Australiana aesthetic has grown in popularity over the recent years through its simultaneous ability to create a quintessentially light and breezy ambiance.
