Caesarstone’s installation of the month

A beautifully designed and executed kitchen in a modernised 1970s house in Elstree is the focus of our case study this month. Created by Vivienne Warman at Kitchen Coordination, the kitchen has a striking, two tone colour scheme, features high gloss Rational cabinetry, Siemens appliances and uses Caesarstone’s Classico Collection’s Snow 2141 throughout.

Say Vivienne,

“The homeowners have been gradually modernising the entire ground floor of a spacious 1970s house in Elstree, Hertfordshire. The original kitchen was dark and lacked natural light – something that the new kitchen, with its cool grey and white colour scheme, neutral, unpolished porcelain flooring and floor-to-ceiling windows – has rectified most successfully.”

Vivienne goes onto explain that Kitchen Coordination relocated the new kitchen – it is now in a completely different part of the house – and that it is four times its original size. With its clean, minimal styling and additional space, it is clearly a decision that has paid off. As is Vivienne’s choice of ‘Snow’ for the kitchen’s work surfaces and its stunning island.

Vivienne says,

“We selected Rational’s handle-less ‘Tio’ range for the kitchen’s furniture and cabinetry – and opted for a combined colour scheme of Platinum Grey and Polar White. Happily, Caesarstone’s ‘Snow’ – colour ref 2141 – was the exact match for Rational’s glossy Polar White. The colour co-ordination is amazing; the Polar White cabinetry and Snow quartz meld into each other and create a beautifully seamless appearance.”

Snow is one of the Classico Collection’s best-selling colours. Like all Caesarstone surfaces, it is completely non-porous, will resist scratches and staining and most importantly, it requires no honing, finishing or sealing procedures. The quartz is guaranteed for 15 years from installation and in addition to work surfaces, can also be used for splashbacks, flooring and for cladding furniture. It can also be successfully moulded and formed.

Reflecting on the Kitchen Coordination’s choice of ‘Snow’, the homeowners say,

“We’re absolutely thrilled with our kitchen in its entirety, but especially with our Caesarstone surfaces. Vivienne was spot-on when she suggested we choose ‘Snow’ – it’s beautifully simple and really adds to the general impression of spaciousness. In addition, it’s so easy to keep it looking that way – and believe us – with children, it was essential that we opted for the lowest of low-maintenance surfaces!”

The worktops were installed and fabricated by Stone of London.

Low maintenance is certainly an apt description. Requiring nothing more than a wipe over with a warm, soapy dishcloth, Caesarstone’s quartz is the ultimate no-fuss surface choice.
