Borghini Naturale creates a fresh, natural look in House Rules High Stakes QLD reno

Featured Colour: Borghini Naturale
Project Name: House Rules High Stakes – Sleek and Modern Home Renovation

The most popular honed surface in the Smartstone Naturale Collection, Borghini Naturale took centre stage in the stunning kitchen in the fourth home renovation in House Rules High Stakes.

Back in Queensland, five teams had completed renovating the home of Tamara and Rhys in the coastal suburb of Margate while adhering to specific house rules.  As winners of the last renovation challenge, VIC couple Kayne and Aimee had the advantage to choose their zone which included the kitchen, hallway and study.

After the consult at Style Kitchens by Design, Kayne and Aimee chose the beautiful honed Smartstone Borghini Naturale as benchtops and splashback, creating a fresh, natural and organic look throughout the kitchen.

The kitchen island bench is clad with Borghini Naturale with its base featuring by emerald green tiles in herringbone pattern, giving the kitchen a “jewel tone” as specified in one of the new house rules. The striking green gave the otherwise monochromatic toned kitchen an elegant accent and appeal.  The island bench donned a waterfall edge with a sleek and unique diagonal angle, an unusual spin in modern kitchen design.

Borghini Naturale‘s natural looking veins on the benchtops and splashback perfectly complemented the black handleless base and floor-to-ceiling cabinets, exuding a “sleek finish” as well as creating the illusion of height and space in a small area.

Featuring a soft grey veining with a dewy, natural finish, Borghini Naturale is the only honed surface in the exclusive range for its luxurious and exquisite design.  Sometimes called matte surfaces, honed quartz benchtops have a soft sheen and more natural aesthetic with an organic appearance. They have less glossy finish and reduce the reflection of overhead lighting, evoking a more relaxed vibe.

Due to popular demand, Smartstone developed the naturale collection of honed quartz surfaces manufactured to offer the authentic, semi-matte look of natural stone while delivering superior durability of quartz.

For the home renovation round, the teams are challenged to renovate another teams’ home in just 7 days while following House Rules laid down by the home owners. For this renovation, Tamara and Rhys set the following rules:

1. Design an integrated, clutter-free minimalist home
2. We want sleek finishes and modern lines
3. Pepper with jewel tones
4. Deliver a wow with every room
5. Give Rhys a paradise to pump iron
