Timber tones dominate the space, with Kinsman’s NEW Cube Range Oak Woodgrain Matt used across the cabinetry and desk, broken up with pops of black from graphic black handles.

A simple galley layout with an island bench hosts plentiful storage space and a wine fridge. Benchtops in classic marble-look Caesarstone® Statuario Maximus provide generous prep space, and the island bench creates the perfect gathering place for guests. Dark Woodgrain Matt doors and internals from Kinsman’s NEW Cube Range and bold Ash Black Anodised Bar handles combine for a cohesive material mix.

Laundry Week

Josh and Luke have created a dark and bold laundry that perfectly complements their kitchen and much of the joinery used throughout House 4. Its galley-shaped layout has allowed the twins to design a room that will serve a large family household.

Mirroring the palette of their kitchen, the laundry features cabinetry in Kinsman’s new Ballina French Dark Grain Pure Grain. To keep the look streamlined and modern, a mixture of Touch Catch and Volpato handles feature throughout. Matte black features add to the contemporary and architectural style as seen through the 2020 Alumin Frame Shelving with Broadline Glass and a Black Hanging Rail- which is the pair’s favourite feature of the laundry.

The placement of Bosch appliances under the bench in Caesarstone® Statuario Maximus produces a generous folding station. The marble-look quartz surface has also been used for the splashbacks, creating a beautiful contrast to the dark joinery. A plethora of storage space and clever organisational accessories such as Laundry Wire Baskets ensure that the laundry is right at home within House 4.

Kitchen Week

Luke and Josh’s generous kitchen takes centre stage in House 4, being the first thing you see as you walk through the front door. In keeping with the ultra-modern design aesthetic seen throughout their home, the space showcases a moody and opulent palette layering black, timber and marble tones. Central to the look is the joinery in Ballina French Dark Grain Pure Grain, a new colour to the Kinsman range, which features a heavily embossed dark woodgrain. Wall cabinets in Black Aluminium Frame Doors with black-tinted Acrylic Inserts provide a visually appealing feature with their architectural lines.

Caesarstone® Statuario Maximus has been used for the island bench and the splashback, providing a beautiful contrast to the black joinery with its soft white marble-inspired design with broad warm grey veins. A timber feature on the island was custom created by acclaimed furniture maker Christian Cole, adding a sense of warmth and structure to the room, in turn allowing seating space for people to gather.

This kitchen is perfect for those who love to cook and entertain. An induction cooktop and a cube of NEFF appliances are perfect for a home cook, while painting the streamlined look. The inclusion of bi-fold windows and a Caesarstone® Jet Black benchtop which extends to the outdoor area, creates a servery, connecting the kitchen to the outdoor space.

A hidden butler’s pantry complements the main kitchen area, hosting an extra sink and tap, generous bench space for prep, and plenty of easy access storage thanks to Glass Climbers Cabinets and closed cabinets. It allows the user to hide away any mess while entertaining. Clever storage solutions can be found throughout the pantry and main kitchen, as seen through the inclusion of accessories such as Design Sides, Non-slip Drawer Matts, Internal Drawers, and a Ninka Bin.

“Our kitchen is the standout room in our home, says Luke. It’s designed for a buyer that appreciates a modern-looking home. We have included thoughtful details such as LED lights in the cabinetry and touch sensors throughout, and we chose a bold palette to appeal to someone that is not afraid to stand out.”

Keeping with their signature dark and moody style, the robe features Bottega Oak Woodmatt doors with Black Alumin Full Frames.

Winners of Master Bedroom

Twins Luke and Josh have created a statement Walk-in wardrobe that is sure to turn heads. A natural colour palette has been achieved by combining Natural Oak Ravine exterior doors with matching Natural Oak Matt interior finishes. Bold Square Hook Matt Black handles complement the Black Framed Glass Shelves, which feature alongside a mixture of hanging space, drawers and open shelving.

“When designing our wardrobe spaces, we always consider how the design will complement the style of the room, and whether it will be a bold feature, or blend in, explains Luke. I think this walk-in is standout and suits our uber-modern style.” “It’s not just about the look either, adds Josh. We have added details that takes it to the next level, such as the LED lighting, a television point and the Loox Multidimensional Mirror.”

At the centre of the design is a makeup station topped in Caesarstone® Frosty Carrina and includes the Loox Multidimensional Mirror. This smart mirror combines makeup and mood lighting, a demister, and a Bluetooth-powered sound system! The pair have used glass doors once again, this time across the opening shelving to the right, which also features terrazzo wallpaper instead of a back panel.

“We have designed this robe for some who takes pride in their wardrobe and is happy to make it a feature instead of a hideaway zone, and I think our design reflects this”, says Luke.

Exterior doors: Natural Oak Ravine

Interior finish: Natural Oak Matt
