Yokine | J&F Kos KITCHEN AND BATHROOM DESIGNERS
his chic modern kitchen was a collaboration
between Jusuf Kos and the home’s Yokine
owners, who briefed J&F Kos with their
ideas and requests.
The kitchen is an ultra-modern style, worked
into the home design on the narrow lot. J&F Kos
also were commissioned to reflect the interior
kitchen in an alfresco kitchen and bathrooms,
with a matching look to tie the design together
and create flow.
Simple design tricks, such as the use of
bulkheads to separate the living area from the
kitchen, leave to space open yet defined and avoid
physically cordoning of the space.
Use of the top-quality integrated appliances
meet the needs of the modern kitchen, which
is constructed in HMR melamine to cabinet
carcasses. HMR MDF doors have been sanded
down, given a coat of primer and then two-to-
three coats of the highest quality, two-Pack
lacquered Becker Acromer Paint from Sweden in
White Satin, with a semi-gloss finish. ABS 1ml
edging is used around all the carcasses and the
look is completed with door handles from ARTIA.
Depth and contrast is added via the deep
granite benchtops from Ital Marble and Granite,
and a brown glass splashback in keeping with
Soft-close runners by Blum with a weight
capacity of 50kg are used for all drawers and
hinges. This kitchen features more drawers than
doors, which is currently very on-trend for
kitchens. Jusuf says this is due to its much easier
access for pots, pans and plates, because clients
don’t want to have to dig into cupboards to reach
what is required.
J&F Kos avoided any damage occurring to
the custom white, glossy cabinetry by installing
the carcasses then, once all other tradesmen had
completed their work, the doors are installed.
The result is an immaculate kitchen that displays
the nest of current kitchen trends.
