Fall In Love All Over Again: How To Create A Smart, Sleek-Looking Kitchen
It’s out with the old and in with the new. If this is the year that you’re planning on revamping your kitchen, look no further than our top 5 trends of the season.
From glossy surfaces to minimal colour palettes, here we show you how you can create a kitchen that not only looks smart, but is practical and bespoke to your needs.
Use two tones
The mix-and-match trend is still as popular as ever. Yet using only two tones of a similar colour is the easiest way to create a modern-looking kitchen.
Using this method creates a sleek look that can make the room feel bigger. Your prepping area, too, can appear cleaner – especially if the colours are lighter.
Paint it black and white
But which colours to choose? We recommend the classic pairing of black and white. These complementary tones work together seamlessly.
White can be used to brighten up your cabinets and flooring, and when paired with a dark worktop, can give your kitchen the edge it may have been missing.
Gloss your surfaces
Make your kitchen sparkle and shine. Glossy surfaces are not only great for illuminating a room, but they also have useful properties which make them easier to keep clean. The smooth surface of a polished stone like Sensa granite or marble is both practical and alluring.
It also has the power to wow any guest that walks through your door. Glossy surfaces, as opposed to matte ones, allow for the intricate details in the stone to stand out, creating a beautiful addition to your dream kitchen.
Get back to basics
Nothing says ‘smart’ like the basics. Whether you’re looking to open up your space with cream, white and grey or wish to mix it up with a splash of vibrant colour, keep to plain walls and worktops.
By not incorporating busy patterns, you allow your room to breathe, helping make it look clean and fresh with little effort.
An affluent yet modern look can only be achieved by the minute designs of a natural stone. Each slab has a completely different appearance. You’ll have a one-of-a-kind kitchen, perfectly designed for you and your family.
As an added bonus, you’ll find that nearly all our stones here at RC Coppin have properties that make them ideal for preparation spaces. With heat-resistant surfaces and non-porous attributes, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your worktop is safe from the wear and tear of everyday life.
