Cabinetry Colour: Special Powdercoated Aluminium – Dulux Rainforest Glow
Benchtops: 40mm Corian Clam Shell
80mm Corian Concrete – Breakfast Bench
It’s hard to miss a statement piece like this project. The team were blessed to work with Simon and Penelope, who had an adventurous vision for the colours they wanted in their project. So, we just have to start with the stunning cabinetry colour choice.
Did we mention colourful? The bold choice of a special powder coated aluminium cabinet door certainly makes the whole space sing. Dulux Rainforest Glow has a real citrusy yellow/green hue that is a highly unusual colour but has blended in with the surrounding greenery of the couple’s lovely garden beautifully. We love it.
The existing veranda had some nice outdoor formal seating, however the BBQ sitting at the far end of the 4-metre wall, looked a bit tired and out of place. Simon had been using the Weber Family Q on a trolley and when deciding on upgrading the outdoor space was keen to incorporate the built-in version which has become extremely popular.

The addition of a single glass door bar fridge to keep drinks cold and handy was an obvious choice, whilst a fully plumbed sink and tap was also added to make the Outdoor Kitchen a truly self-sufficient unit. These items, along with the ample cabinetry took care of the 3880mm end wall of the existing alfresco.
To make more use of the space, a casual bar seating section was constructed to the nearest veranda post. The 80mm thick Corian benchtop was given a contrasting colour to the main unit. At 4.1 metres in length, the benchtop required a steel subframe and centre support to remain solid and level. The area underneath the bench was left open to not close in the corner, and to give uninterrupted garden views from all angles.
What we have created for Simon and Penelope is a fantastic, colourful, casual entertaining space that will provide years of entertainment for family and friends for many years. Thanks so much to our wonderful clients for the bold colour choices.
