When it comes to making a statement in the kitchen, splashbacks are often overlooked, but metallics offer the opportunity to infuse more depth and richness to your space. Opt for a Copper splashback with our New Forest cabinets for a show-stopping look.


2. Inject some character into your kitchen with a feature wall

Looking to inject a bit of character into your modern kitchen? A feature wall is guaranteed to do just this. Make your kitchen stand out from the crowd and create a focal point wall with a metallic finish and add wood effect open shelves to create a space that’s both luxurious and inviting.

Metallic handlerails are the perfect option if you want to subtly integrate metallic accents into your design. Metallic handlerails will bring a sophisticated layer of detail to your design and set your handleless kitchen apart from the rest. This is also great option if your kitchen is on the smaller size – their reflective qualities will twinkle and allow light to bounce across the room making the space appear larger. By opting for a handleless kitchen, you’ll also be able to take advantage of our unique modern storage options like Linea and LineaPlus.


4. Mix and match cool metallics with other cool textures

When you think of metallic in interior design, “cold and sterile” might spring to mind. However, that certainly doesn’t have to be the case. Blend cool metallic shades like our Titaniuim with the natural wood tones of our Ligna range for a natural Scandi look or create a space that oozes calming serenity by mixing Milano Levante Marble Worktops, Ligna Washed Oak wall units and Metalix Aluminium splashbacks.


5. Mix and match warm metallics with other warm textures
