Roses are red, violets are blue, let us help you choose the perfect Caesarstone® benchtop for you!

Love is in the air this week, and here at Freedom Kitchens HQ we want to help you find your perfect match – between your dream kitchen style and the perfect benchtop design.

The design process is an exciting time in any kitchen renovation, and picking the style of your kitchen and the perfect finishes to bring it to life, is a very important step. To help you on your journey, in this blog we explore three of the most popular kitchen styles and the Caesarstone® countertops that complement them.

Why Caesarstone®? The perfect complement to the premium cabinetry, hardware and accessories we offer at Freedom Kitchens, Caesarstone® is an elegant surface manufactured from natural quartz. Available in many colours and looks, they are durable, easy-to-clean and maintain.

Hamptons Love

This modern Hamptons kitchen features an eye-catching island bench in Caesarstone®’s Statuario Maximus.

The ever-popular Hamptons kitchen style is one that is easy to fall in love with. Easy luxury is achieved through Shaker-style cabinetry, detailed hardware and eye-catching accessories and appliances. Whether you prefer a traditional or modern take on the style, a marble-look benchtop is the perfect fit for this look. We love the marble-inspired quartz benchtops from Caesarstone® as they mimic the natural beauty of marble without the maintenance that real marble requires- perfect for the modern Australian lifestyle.

The kitchen pictured above is an open and light filled space that celebrates a modern Hamptons feel by using Freedom Kitchens Sierra White Matt and Black Matt cabinetry and oak flooring. Catering for a family of six, the island bench in Statuario Maximus by Caesarstone® stretches 3.6 metres- ensuring that is the focal point of the the room. The marble design adds luxury with its broad warm grey veins sweeping across a soft white base colour, further enriched by delicate background veins.

Designer tip: Consider adding unexpected details to your kitchen design if you want to evoke the Hamptons style but with a twist. In the kitchen above the owners thoughtfully included small details such as the pastel ceramic pendants above the island and sleek silver handles adding a hint of the Scandinavian look. By adding features from different yet complementary style to create a room that is unique to you.

Modern Love

Guy & Jules Sebastian’s modern, urban kitchen hits the right note with the successful pairing of sleek black cabinetry and a Caesarstone® Rugged Concrete island bench.

Concrete-look benchtops are a perfect match for modern industrial kitchen styles. We love the concrete inspired range from Caesarstone® which offers various shades from deep and dramatic tones to softer, more subtle colours.

When Guy & Jules Sebastian entrusted Freedom Kitchens to create their stunning entertainers kitchen it needed to complement the rest of their ultra-modern design of their family home in Maroubra. At the heart of the room is the incredible island benchtop in Caesarstone®’s Rugged Concrete spanning a staggering 5.6 metres in length. The perfect gathering point in the home, it also complements the flooring and wall treatment used throughout both the kitchen and beyond into the rest of the home.

Designer tip: Concrete-inspired benchtops also pair beautifully with solid white or black tops. For example, you may like to use a dramatic concrete-style top for your island and then pair with a solid shade for your back benchtops. This can be seen in the Sebastian’s kitchen where Jet Black tops are featured on the back run of their kitchen.

Dramatic Love

Scott Cam’s modern, classic and bold kitchen embraces dark and indulgent Shaker-style doors with the raw texture of Caesarstone® Excava benchtops resulting in a kitchen that turns heads.

Host of TV hit The Block on Nine and one of Australia’s most loved television personalities, Scott Cam, chose a dramatic style for his statement kitchen. Caesarstone® Excava benchtops accentuate boldness and celebrates a combination of raw tones and textures of natural elements, concrete and rust. The cool grey and earthy warm hues, that marble throughout the stone, creates and stunning focal point within this industrial style kitchen. Be as bold as can be by matching your benchtops with your splashbacks – it has a great impact on the look and feel of your kitchen and creates a seamless look that simply turns heads!

To complement his Caesarstone benchtops, Scott Cam has opted for dark and moody cabinetry which features a profile door, black handles and terracotta tiles – a sleek design that brings a touch of colour into the room. Chrome appliances add a glamorous aesthetic, in keeping with the industrial style portrayed in this U-shaped kitchen.

Designer tip: Team a dramatic benchtop with opposing cabinetry for a show-stopping look. Match your handle colour with your cabinetry, just like Scott Cam, for a sleek and streamlined look, or choose metallic tones, matching your appliances and tapware, to add instant appeal to your space.
