4 Stone effect kitchen ideas to make your kitchen stand out

A stone effect finish in your kitchen will add depth, character and a unique look to your home.

Our brand-new Milano range has been launched to help you achieve a luxurious, crisp, industrial look at a fantastic price, without compromising on quality and beauty.

Why have we introduced new stone effect finishes?

Solid stone work surfaces such as marble, Corian and Quartz have a drastic impact on the overall cost of a kitchen, which is why we’ve introduced Milano.

Milano is an affordable way to add life-like stone finishes to your kitchen, without compromising on quality or style. These life-like finishes have been carefully created to complement our existing colour palettes, textures and new ranges.

What stone effect finishes are available?

A breakfast bar is a charming addition to any kitchen - it’s an opportunity to be adventurous and set your kitchen apart from the rest. Combine Milano Earth Stone with Ligna Alaskan Oak for a relaxed, natural Scandi look.

Alternatively, choose Milano Levante Marble and complement with Ligna Washed Oak for an elegantly glamourous look.

3 – Be practical and stylish with stone effect worktops

It’s often said that worktops can make or break a kitchen. So that being said, your choice of kitchen worktop is not a decision to be taken lightly. Worktops must be practical, look good and match the overall look of your kitchen. Stone effect worktops are always a crowd-pleaser, and with 9 different stone finishes to choose from in our Milano range, you really can’t go wrong!

2 - Create an alluring aesthetic with stone effect doors

Milano Arctic Frost

Nothing quite says modern industrial like a stone effect flat slab door. Pair neutral coloured kitchen cabinets with finishes like Milano Arctic Frost and Silver Shadow for a fresh, industrial look. Opting for the cool tones is especially beneficial if your kitchen is on the smaller size as this will keep the kitchen looking bright and airy!

1 – Mix and Match 

Mixing and matching has become the epitome of modern-day kitchen design. Create a dramatic feature by incorporating stone into your kitchen and combine with bold colours and contrasting textures.

Sutton New Forest with Milano Earth Stone work surfaces, featuring Metalix Copper

For example, combining Milano Earth Stone with Sutton New Forest, Metalix Copper and Ligna Florence Oak will create a warm, show stopping look.

Alternatively, you can include stone features to create a subtle finish to your kitchen and blend with similar tones for a crisp, fresh design.

While matching Milano Arctic Frost, Ligna Farmhouse Oak, Metalix Bronze and Sutton Burnt Umber will create a more natural, warm rustic look.
