New kitchens for the new season
Now that our summer of heatwaves is over and we start to embrace the autumn/winter months ahead, there are plenty of stunning kitchen collections to inspire an upcoming project. With everything from high gloss to reeded glass, there’s something for everyone…
KELLER’S COTTAGE LIFE
The trend for natural materials is very much ongoing, especially with simple styles that are charming without feeling old-fashioned. With this in mind, Keller has launched its Cottage Life country-style design. The kitchen has a minimalist look with plenty of storage, contrasting handles and a large island complete with flush-fit hob. In dark grey oak and Bronx linen, the overall effect is one of clean lines and a contemporary twist. Composite worksurfaces with a luxurious marble look enhance the natural feel.
CAPLE GOES FOR TEXTURE WITH KOLT
Featuring a distinctive textured look on smooth doors, Caple’s Kolt kitchen has plenty of contemporary appeal. Available in eight colours – Copper Blend, Graphite Blend, Grey Blend, Ash Marble, Grey Marble, Lead Marble, Natural Oak and White Oak, it can be mixed and matched to create a unique look and features PVC edging for added durability. The doors meanwhile have patterned 18mm MFC for a hardwearing surface that’s easy to clean.
HKUK KEEPS IT SIMPLE WITH LUZZI
Comprising J-pull handleless kitchen doors, drawers and accessories with a luxurious high-gloss lacquered finish, the Luzzi collection from HKUK is perfect for those who favour modern minimalism. Available in Gloss White, Gloss Light Grey and Gloss Ivory, the range also includes slab doors, corner doors, curved doors and plain framed sizes.
Vipp’s first kitchen, the V1, was launched in 2011 as a raw and refined industrial design made from steel. Now the V2 brings a new palette of materials in the form of fine-grained Jura limestone from Germany’s Alp region along with dark oak, also sourced locally in Europe. Cabinet fronts are available in dark oak, reeded glass and anodised aluminium while rounded aluminium reeded profiles with reeded details produce discreet, integrated drawer and cabinet grips. This new organic look brings with it a more tactile feel in line with current trends.
BENCHMARX RELEASES TWO NEW ON-TREND COLOURS
Benchmarx has recently released its best-selling Soho J-pull range in two new on-trend colours, Midnight Blue and Forest Green, perfect for autumn/winter. The latest hues offer a subtle colour pop to complement the kitchen’s existing gloss white, gloss light grey, matt white, matt carbon and matt dove grey options.
KITCHEN MAKERS INTRODUCES ENGLISH RED
New for autumn/winter, Kitchen Makers is introducing a brand-new colourway to the collection – English Red. This rich, warming tone can be used as a standalone shade or paired with a range of neutral hues from cool greys to pale pinks. Shown here on the Haddon kitchen, it looks stunning on any of its Shaker-style designs.
