Whitney and Andy: Scandi/Industrial

With help from The Good Guys Kitchens, Whitney and Andy have designed
a stunning Scandinavian-inspired kitchen with a rustic, industrial twist.
The Scandi palette of white and Ballina Natural Oak timber grain is complemented by a new colour exclusive to The Good Guys Kitchens: Cinder, a stunning and on-trend grey gloss. The freestanding black Smeg cooker and matching rangehood, brass-look handles, and painted exposed brick splashback add an industrial edge.

Featuring for the first time on The Block is the Silestone White Storm benchtop with a uniquely inverted sharknose profile and suede-effect finish. Contrasting this is the 60mm marble-inspired island benchtop in Lyra, angled to complement the triangular shaped kitchen and making it feel spacious.

For the organised chef, there is a dedicated spice drawer and knife rack, while herbs are at the ready with the in-built island herb garden. For the coffee connoisseur, an integrated Smeg coffee machine sits proudly at the ready above the microwave oven and next to the Samsung fridge — all in stainless steel for an added industrial edge. Deep soft-close drawers with new glass sides add a sense
of sophistication — the final touch to this entertainer’s kitchen.

Whitney and Andy’s nearby laundry echoes the rustic elements of the kitchen
as the industrial theme is further realised within this space.
