Hettich Australia supplied a range of products for the Kitchen Week segment on the popular television show, The Block. This year’s competition has the contestants involved in the renovation of rundown weatherboard houses in the Melbourne suburb of Elsternwick.
Kitchen Week, one of the show’s most popular segments among viewers, offered the contestants a wide range of materials, textures and quality products to demonstrate the immense possibilities of kitchen design. Hettich worked with Freedom Kitchens, the exclusive kitchen and laundry supplier for The Block 2017, to provide cabinetry hardware for the kitchen renovations.
Josh and Elyse – Inside the kitchen
Josh and Elyse took inspiration from their love for the outdoors by introducing a new look to their kitchen. The island benchtop was positioned to face the garden and it paid off with their kitchen design ranked 10/10 by the judges who were blown away by their warm, cosy and cohesive layout as well as the finer details inside the kitchen.
Design highlights included the use of the whisper quiet ArciTech soft closing drawer with P2O soft closing for a streamlined handle-less look in the kitchen; internal accessories to match the flooring choice; and all spices held neatly within the silver ArciTech soft closing drawer for maximum use.
Jason and Sarah – A simple piece of genius
A classic kitchen with subtle luxury touches, the design used a mixture of surfaces, in particular, a new metallic surface concealing the fridge.
Design highlights included the use of ArciTech internal drawers for the pantry as an added extra for storage, allowing simple storing of plates, bowls or pots-and-pans; and soft closing Sensys hinges for a touch of luxury on each door within the hidden butler’s pantry.
Ronnie and Georgia – Industrial-look kitchen
The industrial style modern kitchen had a warm, inviting vibe with the dark matt black tones completing the rugged concrete look to add some punch to the room. The appliances blend into the cabinetry seamlessly, with an over large kitchen sink to suit the family home.
Design highlights included a butler’s pantry for additional storage, with ArciTech internal drawers making use of every inch of space.
Hannah and Clint – Contemporary style
Featuring a contemporary design, the kitchen is beautiful and inviting with the island bench providing a significant amount of space; and the layout is extremely functional with the dishwasher, sink and integrated bins within arm’s reach.
Design highlights included the silver ArciTech soft closing drawer complementing the overall contemporary tones and colours within the kitchen; and soft closing Sensys hinges providing a hint of luxury and functionality.
Stick and Wombat – Raw refined luxury
The brief was a raw edgy style kitchen, which used earthy grey tones that flowed from their kitchen to the lounge room. The concrete-look was their primary colour choice combined with a stone white benchtop. Mirrored kickboards give a floating effect to the kitchen and pantry.
Design highlights included handle-less P2O cabinet doors offering a seamless look within the kitchen and used in conjunction with soft closing Hettich Sensys hinges; and the signature use of timber evident in the accessories with the ArciTech soft closing drawers.
Hettich is a proud supplier of cabinetry hardware to Freedom Kitchens for The Block 2017.
