A kitchen in Canberra, 2010

A kitchen in 2010. At the left of the kitchen is a long bench top that has a sink recessed into it. Beyond the sink is a row of containers neatly set out against the bottom of a large window above the bench top. At the far wall of the kitchen is a modern glass-topped, multi-element electric cooktop. Above it, at just about head height, is an extractor fan in a covered installation. Either side of the cooktop are kitchen electric appliances and a knife set. A small shelf to the left of the extractor fan holds an assortment of containers. Cupboards and drawers can be seen under the cooktop. To the right of the cooktop is a doorway leading  into another room. On the right side of the kitchen is a tall double door, glass-fronted pantry. Next to the pantry is a refrigerator. The front of the refrigerator is adorned with notices, pictures and other documents. To the right of the refrigerator is a wall-mounted oven with a microwave oven in a recessed space above it.
