Kitchen Goals - Inside the Helix 24 Display Kitchen
Modern kitchens have evolved into more than just a space to prepare food. They’re a place to relax, chat, entertain and more; often they’re even the centerpiece of a home, with industrial touches and sleek finishes taking centre stage. They can also be one of the most costly spaces to complete. But fear not - here at Thrive we’re all about keeping things affordable and functional, without sacrificing style.
Enter the Helix 24 display kitchen at Wallis Creek. It’s any would-be MasterChef’s dream, with it’s spacious butler’s pantry, double bowl sink, Dublin flex hose tapware with veggie spray and island bench. Not to mention the expanse of Caesarstone benchtops - a virtually worry free surface (stain, scratch and heat resistant, just to name a few of its many benefits) that will stand the test of time and use.
Add a built-in 900mm electric oven and gas cooktop, built-in Westinghouse microwave and Dishlex underbench dishwasher, and you’re all set to put on one fantastic dinner party!
In terms of visual appeal, this space is dressed to impress. Using a light ‘Ocean Foam’ Caesarstone has allowed our designers to go darker on the kitchen joinery, keeping things looking sophisticated and super-modern. To keep costs down, we’ve used Melamine for the lower cupboards. As well as being inexpensive, Melamine is durable and comes in a huge variety of finishes (we’ve used ‘Cinder Matt’). The overhead cupboards on the other hand are more of a showcase, so we’ve used a natural touch timber in ‘Ravine Char Oak’. A 6mm toughened glass splashback and premium floor tiles complete the look.
With a kitchen that gorgeous, you’ll relish spending time in it - and Thrive’s open plan Helix design means that you won’t miss a moment of anything going on in the living or dining areas (a common gripe among home chefs with closed off kitchens!). Come and see us in Wallis Creek, Gillieston Heights, to be inspired by the Helix 24 and it’s beautiful display kitchen. You can see the details here, or get in touch with us for more information. Alternatively you can take a virtual walkthrough of the Helix 24 here.
