THE BLOCK // Kitchen Design REVISITED

THE BLOCK 2017 is underway with filming of the new season already a few weeks in. As the anticipation of what will no doubt be another stellar season builds, we take a look back at our favorite kitchen designs from last years Block archives.

Will and Karlie : Industrial meets Deco

Karlie & Will’s ‘In-deco’ kitchen design sees the perfect balance between modern industrial with influences of Art Deco.

A feature timber look blockout in Rural Oak frames the cabinetry in Super Matt Black and the living and cooking spaces have been effortlessly linked with the introduction of a timber-look table in the new Natural Halifax Oak, a new addition to the Freedom Kitchen range that beautifully replicates the appearance and texture of solid oak.

The duo have used a modern palette of white, black and timber to stunning effect, with the introduction of the brand new Cosmopolitan White™ benchtop from Caesarstone® adding another standout feature to this winning kitchen.

A display enclave in the kitchen island, sleek NEFF appliances and a butler’s pantry featuring open shelving complete the look.

  • Benchtops: Caesarstone® Cosmopolitan White™ (20mm pencil edge) & Natural Halifax Oak (38mm Streamline edge)

Dan and Carleen: Bold Contemporary

Carleen and Dan have created a bold and luxurious kitchen that pays homage to the beautiful Art Deco building that it is part of.

Cherry Riftwood cabinetry has been used on the back run of the kitchen and continued all the way through to the butler’s pantry adding ‘wow’ with its warmth and texture. Cabinetry in Iceland White Satin on the island bench adds contrast with the timber tones and further drama is added with the inclusion of the Caesarstone® benchtops in White Attica™, a brand new marble-look design featuring a clean white base with dense, dark grey interwoven veins.

Integrated appliances by Bosch, a display nook within the island bench and heavy use of touch catch cabinetry throughout further enhances the modern and sleek design.
