Mr & Mrs Silcoxâ€™s White and Grey Gloss Kitchen
When Mr & Mrs Silcox approached Michelle, a designer at our Sigma 3 showroom at Culverhouse Cross in Cardiff, she knew their kitchen was going to be a special one.
The Silcox family revisited Sigma 3 Kitchens after having their utility room done by us almost ten years ago!
This time, they knocked the old kitchen through into the dining room and extended at the rear to create a big L-shaped space with large bi-fold doors leading to the garden.
Michelle explained, ‘The couple wanted a contemporary look with a linear design in tones of grey, a palette that is echoed through their adjoining hall and living spaces. The customers have a total of 24 drawers in their design to ensure space is maximised. They chose Legrabox R-Design to really keep the modern, linear theme going throughout the entire design. At Sigma 3, the inside of your cabinet can be just as beautiful as the outside‘.
The emphasis on horizontal lines gives this gloss kitchen a calm and contemporary feel. Michelle tells us her key advice for anyone creating a similar design;
‘Separate dining rooms are definitely a thing of the past - I highly recommend knocking through to open up your space.’
So, how can you design your own modern gloss kitchen? Here are some of our top tips…
Contrast your gloss kitchen colours
Opting for all light gloss colours can often lead to the space looking clinical. The way to avoid this is by choosing a darker shade to provide depth and a homely feel in the kitchen. The Silcox family have done this brilliantly by mixing white and grey gloss kitchen units. The use of mixing and matching colours is a trend that’s taking the nation by storm!
If you want to achieve the modern sleek look in your kitchen, then look no further than the Legrabox-R Design internals with the Anthracite Linen finish. This finish is exclusive to all Sigma 3 Kitchens (and its sister brand, Masterclass Kitchens). The stainless steel finish works beautifully with a gloss kitchen.
Keep if functional
Opting for drawers instead of cupboards in the kitchen, like the Silcox couple have done is a clever way to utilise every part of the kitchen. Drawers ensure everything is in reach and accessible. This means there will no longer be forgotten items at the back of a cupboard.

The benefit of a gloss kitchen
A key benefit of having a gloss finish in your kitchen is how the units bounce light around the room. Gloss kitchen units provide a bright and open space – fantastic if you’re searching for a room filled with natural light. This makes gloss kitchens especially useful if you have a smaller kitchen as it adds the illusion of a larger space.
