The use of metallic finishes within kitchen design is in big demand. That’s why Masterclass Kitchens have launched a brand-new brushed metal effect range called Metalix, to create an entirely coordinated look. It is available for use as doors, upstands, splashbacks and panelling, with the addition of matching handle rails and handles to complete the look.
Steve Tough, commercial sales director at Masterclass Kitchens, tells us why they have launched this latest kitchen trend:
“Metalix has been introduced to allow designers to incorporate glamourous focal points and accents to create a kitchen design that is truly unique to the customer - it is another point of difference for the Masterclass Kitchens brand.
"We want to allow a designer to plan a kitchen using all our own furniture, worktops, and matching accessories. This means that the kitchen will then be delivered complete with all cabinets, worktops, splashbacks and handles coming from directly from us, which is perfect for the retailer, fitter and most importantly, the customer.”
Here are some tips from Masterclass Kitchens to create a modern metallic kitchen:
1. Make a luxurious statement with a feature wall
Adding a metallic feature wall into a kitchen design will create a focal point in the kitchen and help to bring together a glamourous yet inviting scheme. Shown above is Metalix in Bronze, paired with Farmhouse Oak open shelving.
2. Inject some glamour with a metallic splashback
Incorporating a splashback in a metallic finish will help to reflect light around the room, and also make a stylish statement in an area that is often overlooked in kitchen design. Shown above is a Metalix Copper splashback, paired beautifully with New Forest Green and our Milano Earth Stone worktop.
3. Blend with varying textures
Creating a grey based colour scheme may not be every customer’s cup of tea but varying the use of textures of finishes will bring another dimension to a cool colour palette. Embracing cool tones like aluminium and wood textures will bring a Scandi-style to a kitchen design.
4. Mix with marble for a lavish look
Golden tones and marble are a match made in heaven. The addition of Milano marble effect laminate worktops from are a cost-effective way to introduce marble into a design.
