All about Stealth and Mirage Islands

Completely customised to your specifications and made from crystal cool Gemini Quartz® or silky smooth Corian®, these two island designs are the perfect centrepiece for an ultra-contemporary home. Whatever your choice of material, these islands are as practical as they are beautiful - and are tailor made to suit the way you work. They can be fitted with hobs, sinks and a range of appliances to create an elegant workstation that will be the heart of your home. To complete your look, angular cantilevered mantles can also be made for you to match your island.

Gemini Quartz®, made using one of nature's strongest minerals - quartz - mixed with resin in an advanced engineering process, will give your island the natural beauty of stone with all of the benefits of technology, including more consistent tones and patterns. Just like stone, it will be totally unique.

Smooth and virtually seamless, Corian® is man-made using a complex patented process and a wide range of colours, patterns and tones with a consistent appearance that's almost completely uniform.

A range of island colours is available in both Gemini Quartz® and Corian®. Before making your choice, we recommend you consider your personal taste and talk to your Kitchen Designer to decide which material and colour works best in your home and with your design. For more information on the differences and advantages of each material, please refer to the sections on each in the brochure - Gemini Quartz® on page 10 and Corian® on page 14.

Both designs and materials complement a range of kitchen units - from Contour to Handleless. The Stealth island and mantle are available in either right or left-hand versions. The island comes in two sizes - small 2434 x 1200mm and large 2934 x 1200mm. The Mirage is available in three sizes - small 2037 x 1022mm, medium 2437 x 1022mm and large 2937 x 1022mm. Wren Stealth and Mirage islands come with a care and maintenance kit. Please follow the instructions to make sure your island and mantle are kept in pristine condition.

What to expect from your Stealth and Mirage islands and mantle

A Stealth island in Gemini Quartz® has a 20mm exterior Gemini Quartz® frame over a timber interior. Mantles are made with a painted exterior over a steel frame. Both islands come with a polished finish. Since it is made from natural stone, the colour, tonality and particle structure of Gemini Quartz® does vary so there will be a difference between your island and the sample seen in the Showroom.

Some colours vary in intensity more than others so please discuss your options with your Kitchen Designer especially if you are having several worktops or a mantle to match your Stealth island. We will make your worktops from slabs that most closely match each other for a harmonious effect. However, there may be slight differences between them. For more details about Gemini Quartz® appearance and structure, please see page 12 of the brochure. All Gemini Quartz® colours are available except Super White.

There are left-hand and right-hand versions of the Stealth island available. It can be tailored to suit you and fitted with hobs/sinks/fridges/dishwashers and wine coolers - depending on appliance size and island size chosen. It's not possible to fit either ovens or tumble driers because of ventilation issues. Drainer grooves and drainer recesses are not available on Gemini Quartz® sinks - but stainless steel undermounted sinks with drainer grooves can be fitted.

Installing a Stealth or Mirage island is a complex and skilled process with most of the work taking place on site because of the size and customisation involved. Installation can take up to two days and a certain amount of gluing and sanding will take place on site. What to expect from your Stealth and Mirage islands and mantle.
