Dream Home Kitchens showcase Caesarstone Porcelain™ Mirabel™ and Sleet™

03/07/2024

In week five, we witness the marvelous transformations of Jacinta and Jordan’s rundown home in Punchbowl, as well as Lara and Peter’s 1960s red brick house in Belrose.

Very much a siblings episode, sisters Taeler and Elle opt for the Punchbowl kitchen, while brothers Rhys and Liam tackle Belrose.

Both homes suffered from overly small kitchens that didn’t come close to meeting the needs of their owners in terms of cooking, eating, and entertaining in style.

Punchbowl – Bespoke island bench

Taeler and Elle not only renovated but reinvented this kitchen space! By introducing a custom-designed island bench in Caesarstone® Porcelain Mirabel™, the sisters set the template for the rest of the kitchen. The style is one of elegance, with an understated sense of grandeur.

Natural light and muted neutrals

Large flows of workbench space and cabinetry, soaring ceilings, and floods of natural light, courtesy of the large skylights, are the kitchen’s key design elements. The colour scheme is one of muted neutrals, with the striated patina of Mirabel™ on bench surfaces and splashbacks stealing the show.

Translucency, ivory and washed clay

Mirabel™ replicates the soft translucency of alabaster, its ivory base featuring bold striations in charcoal, grey, and copper. Gentle hues of ivory and washed clay add a sense of movement and finesse to its honed finish. The mid-tone timber flooring and warm white cabinetry take their cues from the patina of the porcelain.

Belrose – A light filled haven

The brothers’ Rhys and Liam clever use of space, introducing an oversized island bench, as well as a butler’s pantry, fulfilled the dream of Lara and Peter for a large, open-plan entertainer’s kitchen. Using Caesarstone® Porcelain Sleet™ for all benchtops and splashbacks, they created a sense of flow and fluidity in the space, as well as an ambience of timeless elegance.

Aesthetics and durability

Caesarstone® Porcelain Sleet™ was selected for both its aesthetics and its durability – it will take all the family of four can dish out and still retain its original beauty. It forms an integral part of the overall materials palette – a layering of subtle light-reflective surfaces and timber detailing.

Natural, sustainable beauty

Emulating the natural beauty of Bianco Lasa marble, Sleet’s creamy-white base features a pattern of directional striations in a mix of warm browns, graphite grey, and golden honey, along with occasional highlights in white.

To conclude, the show with two kitchens of this caliber will give many viewers an insight into exactly what can be achieved when you think outside the square. Dreams can be realized, in terms of maximizing the sense of space and efficiency, by exploring relatively new, sustainable materials, such as Caesarstone® Porcelain™.
