How Leon House Designs The Heart Of The Home

The kitchen is often considered the hub of modern house design – the heart of the home. Designing these spaces to be inspiring and eye-catching needs to be a holistic process.

Leon House is the man behind the eponymous Leon House design studio in Perth, and has been designing award-winning kitchens for over 20 years.

This featured kitchen was designed for a young family who needed a sociable, family oriented working kitchen that connected with the living areas indoors and out, which could seamlessly cater to large groups of family and friends.

Leon is driven by a passion and obsession with using minimalist interior architecture and clean lines to create spaces that work and inspire, using quality materials and beautiful fixtures & finishes. He loved bringing all of these qualities to this East Fremantle house.

The kitchen is finished using a variety of brilliant surfaces and finishes, from the Bernini acid washed Carrara stone on the social island and Chocolate stained oak by Fremantle Furniture, to the Caesarstone Snow benchtops and Frost Bruxelles brushed nickel handles – the kitchen is less drab cooking room, and more inspiration destination.

Perth locals can see Leon House’s latest kitchen at Antry’s new showroom, 45 Welshpool Road, Welshpool WA.
