Australian Home – Modern Industrial Kitchen

a Industrial Design Kitchen Northcote (1)

The home reveals a lot about a family; the kitchen speaks volume about personality. Which is why we imagine the owners of this lovely home in Northcote must be very passionate people, in touch with the city and in tune with good design.

Unlike your usual all-white, contemporary kitchen or the popular minimalist style, an industrial kitchen is somewhat an acquired taste. The challenge for Rosemount Kitchens designer, Ben Schultz, was to create a mood that was sophisticated as it is casual, with an eclectic feel or a live-in look that we just find so cozy.

Loving the contrast of modern appliances with exposed brick and rustic word flooring

Ben focused on playing up raw materials as seen with the stunning use of brick walls, steel, wood and stone. “For this interior, I began with a palette of neutral tones and let the natural beauty of the materials stand out,” says Ben.

The approach was to expose and highlight industrial elements, while complementing them with modern pieces for a truly urban look. Thus the structural brick wall was deliberately left unfinished and unpainted, providing a complementing, sharp contrast to the surrounding charcoal black and glossy white cabinetry. At the centre stood a recycled timber island bench that expresses solid functionality; at the same time the raw, authentic beauty of its natural grain seems to tie up the industrial look together. A considered and coherent selection of stainless fixtures and appliances completes its identity.

The cozy, casual enivronment of the kitchen was further enhanced by the use of custom-print glass splashback. As seen here, the owners used a monochromatic photo of themselves at the beach for that extra personal touch.

Ideas for your Kitchen Renovation

Kitchen Reno (1)

Bored with your house? Instead of simply selling up and moving on, why not make improvements to your current home? And the best place to start is the kitchen!

To give you a hand, we've rounded up top four kitchen ideas for 2014. Check them out below...


1. Appliances

Nothing gives your kitchen an instant lift like a new fridge, oven, dishwasher or cooktop. If your budget doesn't quite stretch to a complete renovation of your cabinetry and flooring, then consider investing in a new appliance or two. New technology means many appliances work as time-savers by featuring multiple functions, such as the combi-oven which offers three modes of cooking – convection, steam and combination. Energy-efficient appliances are also more prevalent than ever before, with many people seeking homes that are "green" in design and function.

Check out our Renovators Sale, on now till 23rd March 2014, for great sale prices on ovens, cooktops, fridges, dishwashers, rangehoods and more.

2. Space

We all know that the kitchen is no longer a place just to do the cooking. It is also a socialising area, a homework space, a place to entertain and much more. Often the kitchen will lead into the living area, which means the spatial elements of this area are very important.

For instance, an island bench has become more relevant than the dining room table over recent years. With this in mind, maintaining a comfortable distance between the cooking areas and socialising areas of your kitchen is an important factor to consider when renovating or building. As is the classic "working triangle" kitchen layout, which is between the washing area, cooking area and fridge.

3. Materials

These days kitchens are moving away from using traditional materials like wood, granite and ceramics, and on to more contemporary new materials such as glass, quartz, Corian and laminates for benchtops and splashbacks. Another trend is to match the old with the new; for example laminated glass and stone, or wood and quartz.

Kitchen Reno (4)

4. Colour

Don't be afraid of adding some colours to your kitchen! Painting walls or cupboards is a great, affordable way to change the look of your kitchen. Alternatively if you are wishing to add just a tad of colour, splashback is a popular way to achieve it.

7 Design Trends For The Modern Kitchen

Blanco Enigma Oven Range – Exclusive to E&S Trading


Blanco HQ

Since 1925, Blanco has only one goal, and that’s to deliver a premium experience by approaching all things they create with impeccable style and intelligence. With that said, if you have experienced Blanco’s finest Enigma collection, we are sure you wouldn’t have it any other way.

Blanco enigma oven

Engima’s range of extraordinary built-in ovens epitomise the very best in European styling and quality craftsmanship. Among the many advanced features that we love about it, the state-of-the-art QuartzClean interior and side racks definitely worked it for us.

Blanco has developed an innovative QuartzClean vitreous enamel which is highly scratch and acid resistant. Go ahead - spill red wine, lemon juice or stain your oven with that dreaded beeroot; the even and precise coating of the high grade enamel ensures the spill settle on the surface without being absorbed, preventing discolouration over time.

Blanco enigma oven interior

Even more brilliant is that the QuartzClean enamel makes it possible for the side racks and baking tray to remain in the oven during its pyrolytic cleaning cycle, where temperatures reach up to 500 degrees Celsius. This highly efficient cleaning system burns away all grease and residue, leaving only a thin film of ash which is easily wiped away with a damp cloth.

Blanco enigma Quartzclean

When it comes to the performance of the oven, Blanco sets new benchmark by delivering dishes cooked to perfection, but in a way that breaks all your traditional cooking rules.

With the Auto Cook function, you can literally just place the food in the oven cavity and the oven will take care of itself. Oh yes, we are even talking about a cold start – no pre-heating of oven required! Using moisture sensors, the oven will intelligently determine the overall result and set the most appropriate cooking method and temperature. Talk about being a pro without the effort!

Blanco auto cookHome-baked bread using Auto Cook function

Enigma ovens stayed away from your typical multi-function cooking interface where you select the type of cooking element to turn on – for example conventional, fan-assist, top grill, lower element, etc.

Well let’s face it, most of us only ever use fan with conventional mode. Now if you’re wearing a guilty face, don’t feel too bad because Enigma oven will totally change the way you cook; this range of amazing ovens boast an intuitive menu option where you simply choose the dish you are cooking, and the oven will choose the best function and temperature for that dish.

Blanco Enigma intuitive menu

Each function has been paired with popular food categories, allowing you to choose the right function every time. It even tells you which shelf level to place your food on! Finally an intelligent oven that takes the guess work out of cooking.

Additionally, we also love the temperature booster function. This is an auto-feature that comes on automatically to compensate any heat lost when opening the door. It brings the temperature in the oven up a notch to maintain the integrity of the food inside, meaning you don’t have to worry about heat loss when you open the door to sneak a quick peek.

BOSE635AX Blanco enigmaNow don’t just take out word for it, come and experience Blanco Enigma range for yourself at E&S Trading. Or talk to one of our awesome store consultants and sign up for a free Blanco cooking demonstration class for a hands-on experience.

Perfect Kitchens for Compact Living

Small Home Compact Living (1)

When space is at premium, it’s important that everything in your home is efficient; we’re talking about being tiny but mighty. Having a clever design and choosing the right appliances mean that you don’t have to compromise on function or style.

Read on for lots of ideas on creating the perfect kitchen for compact living.

Small Home Compact Living (2)

Let Your Walls Give You A Hand

If you’ve ever cooked a big complicated meal you’ll know that there just isn’t time enough to dig through drawers to find that cheese grater or measuring cup or lid for your pot. Open shelves and rails keep all of your frequently used cooking tools within arms reach and easy to find, so you can concentrate on your soufflé.

Small Home Compact Living (3)

Disguising Clutter as Decoration

When you need storage in a small space, cabinetry can make the area feel tight and closed-in. Why not opt for open shelving instead? It’s also eco + pocket-friendly since you’re not purchasing a set of upper cabinets.

Consider installing sliding translucent panels to make any clutter look less obvious and you can even play up the design if you want to turn it into a focus feature in the kitchen. Or to keep it simple, just pop in little flowers into a few empty jars and your kitchen will look intentionally shabby chic. Totally genius, right?

Never Leave Dirty Dishes in the Sink

It doesn’t take a neat freak to notice how a sink full of dishes can make a kitchen feel claustrophobic. The best way to tackle this is to keep the dishes out of sight, preferably like somewhere in a dishwasher.

Fisher & Paykel dd60scx6

Fisher & Paykel have moved away from the traditional stand-alone dishwasher to create integrated compact models that save space. The single DishDrawer™ dishwasher is great for our tiny kitchen in this instance. Designed for up to 7 place settings, the DD60SCX7 boasts excellent water (4.5 star) and energy (3.5 star) ratings.

Small Home Compact Living (5a)

Keep it Slim

If the kitchen is the heart of the home, then the refrigerator must be the key to keeping it running. No other kitchen appliance gets as much of a workout or is depended upon as much as the refrigerator. For the kitchen that is wee in size, we recommend a slim fridge such as SMEG’s FAB range.

Compact living Smeg slim fridge

SMEG is synonymous with its iconic FAB retro-style fridges. Available in exciting colours and designs, the FAB 32 two-door range in particular has a special place in our hearts. It's slim enough to fit into a narrow kitchen but still provides a comfortable 206 litre capacity. Who ever said you're stuck between choosing style or functionality?!


Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Some people love 'em, some people hate 'em. I love them for their ability to make a kitchen seem brighter and twice as big. If your kitchen doesn't come with built-in mirrored backsplashes, you can add one by simplying leaning a not-so-tall mirror there.

Small Home Compact Living (7)

Let the Light in

Sunshine is your best friend when it comes to a small kitchen. If there is no exterior wall to put a window into, create skylight on your ceiling. Not only do you reduce your need for artificial lighting, natural daylight creates a pleasing ambience which makes you feel good when you’re cooking!

There you have it, the essentials of a perfect compact kitchen. For five decades, E&S Trading has been a home entertainer’s paradise. Our showrooms boast some of the world’s best kitchen appliances including brands like Sub-Zero, Wolf, Siemens, Gaggenau, ILVE, SMEG and more.

7 Reasons Why You Need a Dishwasher



If the upside to a meal is eating, then the downside is the dirty dishes that come afterward. But it’s not like we’re going to be eating every dinner on paper plates, so cleaning dishes is something sadly inevitable. Which brings us to today’s blog topic – do you have a dishwasher to do your dishes or are you the dish washer at home?

For those of us with a dishwasher, you know there’s no way you’re going back to manual soaping and scrubbing again. Now if you never grew up with one and don’t think you need one, then jump on board because you’re about to enter the wonderful world of dishwashers.

Here’s 7 reasons why we think dishwashers are the way forward.

1. You don’t have to do the dishes

Relaxing no dishes

Well duh, that’s pretty obvious. The whole point of having a dishwasher is so that you don’t have to do the washing up. Once you have loaded all the dishes, simply turn on the power and let your little guy work his magic. Meanwhile you can be outside enjoying the summer sun and sipping a glass of red. Oooh ahhh.


2. Water Usage - Handwash vs. Dishwasher

Dishwashing Cleaning Dishes 03

Did you know that many dishwashers actually use less water than kitchen sinks?

Before you say it’s not plausible, think again. Even though dishwashers have the frightening appearance of a huge hollow box – way bigger than your average kitchen sink, they do not completely fill up with water. The big capacity is for you to stuff it with dishes, and only a relatively small amount of water is sprayed all over your dishes. In fact, most dishwashers actually recycle and reuse some of the water. Comparatively, washing up at the sink has been proven to use more water per place-setting than washing by hand.


3. Zap the Germs

dishwasher inside

One of the reasons dishes come out cleaner in a dishwasher – also making it more hygienic – is that a dishwasher can use higher temperatures than your hands are able to cope with. Together with a strong dishwashing detergent, it’s the hygienic way to protect your family from harmful germs and bacteria that can build up on sponges, dish cloths and tea towels.


4. Sparkling dishes

clean shiny dishes

Effective dishwasher detergents contain far more active ingredients than washing up liquid, ensuring food soils are broken down and washed away during the washing cycle to leave behind nothing but shine. Thanks to rinse agents and latent heat on the dishes, tableware washed in the dishwasher come out with a wonderful shine and free from the spot marks and streaks you can see after washing up at the sink.


5. Soft, Beautiful Hands

soft skin no washing dishes

Okay, so opting for a dishwasher so that you won’t get “dishpan hands” may be a superficial reason, but hey who wants wrinkles on their hands or anywhere else for that matter? Besides how many times have you chipped nails, cut yourself or noticed how rough your skin feels after washing up by hand, especially when you have very sensitive skin?

A dishwasher won’t complain, and will leave your hands to look good and do more useful things!


6. Clutter-free Kitchen

Dishwashing Cleaning Dishes 01

No-one likes coming home to a kitchen with grotty washing-up piled up on the surfaces. It’s unsightly, can smell and when left to dry on, it’s even harder work than normal! With a dishwasher you can quickly pile those dirty dishes out of the way, and only take them out again when they’re clean and sparkling. You just need to remember to turn on the dishwasher though; out of sight but not completely out of mind!


7. No More Squabbles Over Who Does the Dishes

Dishwashing Cleaning Dishes 04

Now who’s turn is it to do the dishes?

The washing up can be a major cause of disharmony at home. Arguments happen over whose turn it is to wash up and the quality of the wash. Plus it’s really not ok to have bits of food scrap still stuck on the dishes and call it done. Invest in a dishwasher and never hear another cleaning squabble again.

If you’re now convinced that you need a dishwasher, pop into an E&S Trading showroom to discover our wide range. Our friendly consultants are always happy to help sort you out. And for whatever reason you don’t feel like leaving your house today, you can also shop and order online at our website!
