The bedroom is increasingly important when it comes to creating an individual style in the…
Kitchens often include bright shiny appliances but we are seeing a move towards softer metallics with the introduction of copper, brass and rose gold.
We are finding that adding metallic to a design, in a feature such as an island, for example, works well. These new metallics complement natural materials, so adding to a soft wood grain for example is a great match. When used in this way, they add a dramatic focal point to a design and make a stunning centrepiece, helping to bring individuality to a room.
Metallics are warm and tactile but can also be rich, adding a touch of luxury, which is another reason why they work so well when used sparingly. Other ways to introduce it to the kitchen include via a worktop, choose one that has a burnished finish, or a splashback, not just behind the cooker but maybe a feature wall.
Many other kitchen products are now available in a range of metallics, sinks and taps for example. Franke offer a selection of contemporary sinks in two glorious Copper finishes, Gold and Grey, as well as a Sterling Silver option.
Kholer have some beautiful Brushed Bronze taps that will give an instant designer look to your kitchen.
Lighting is another good way to add a splash of metallic. There are lots of stunning Bronze and Copper pendant lights that are perfect for the kitchen. These can be enhanced by adding Copper accessories, a kettle and toaster for example.
Changing your small accessories is a great way to update the look of your kitchen, helping to keep it fresh for longer.
