Project 7: Giving Back to our Community

The delightful team at Norsu Home have been hard at work on a charitable initiative for an incredibly deserving and loving family that has opened their home (and hearts!) to many children over the years thought the Berry Street charity’s foster home program. 

In the last two years, this beautiful family of five has become a family of seven after welcoming two more little people, providing them with a safe and permanent home. 

As one can expect, this growing family could definitely use a helping hand and some much needed space! Norsu Home has come to the rescue with the help of many wonderful industry suppliers to create a new kitchen that is fit for such a large group, as well as a new tiny home on the property for the family’s oldest child, creating some much needed space in the main house.

In collaboration with several other industry suppliers who have been kind enough to donate their products or services to the cause, the tired old kitchen has been completely transformed with all new cabinetry, a freshly tiled splashback, a set of sleek new appliances and on trend, sophisticated black tapware. The end result is a stylish and modern kitchen design with ample storage, preparation zones and of course, increased cooking space to handle this family’s bustling lifestyle.

True to form, Norsu Home has paid very close attention to each and every element of this new design to ensure all materials and finishes are durable enough to last a lifetime. Kindly donated from CDK Stone, the new Neolith kitchen benchtop provides an eco-friendly solution that can not only withstand extreme temperature changes but is also stain and scratch resistant, while also providing an incredibly hygienic countertop solution: An absolute must for any busy modern home. 

Project 7- before and afterNot only was the existing kitchen in desperate need of a more user friendly layout, a storage upgrade was definitely a necessity as well as brand new appliances capable of keeping up with this large family.

In true Norsu Home fashion, this show-stopping kitchen benchtop has been paired with their signature blush tones to complete the look. Using our Moda Blush Scale mosaic tiles, the new design is infused with rich texture and pattern, and a soft touch of colour in an otherwise achromatic colour palette. Complimented with a pale grey grout, these kitchen tiles create a soft, warm atmosphere in the space: the perfect design choice in reflecting this household’s immense love and warmth.

Project 7 - Moda fish scale tilesThe organic shape of our Blush Moda Scale mosaic tiles provide a soft, elegant touch to this new statement kitchen. The Moda collection includes several different geometric shapes in a variety of playful hues to help create a modern yet timeless kitchen design in the home

The new kitchen design is simply bursting with personality with its sleek, contemporary matte black tapware and appliances (courtesy of Meir Australia and Smeg) creating a stunning contrast with the softer tones of the blush mosaic tile splashback and crisp white of the new kitchen cabinetry. A pull-out kitchen sink mixer sits atop a double bowl sink, offering a highly functional design solution to suit the family’s need for a multi-purpose space. Interior painting and other finishing touches are also underway, along with the property’s brand new tiny home that is also being completed, and we are definitely looking forward to sharing even more updates on this exciting project! 

It has truly been in incredible honour to have been a part of such a worthy cause which could not have been made possible without the assistance and support of our local community. We hope this spectacular family will enjoy their freshly renovated home for many years to come!
