Last week, we took an in-depth look at our beautiful real wood worktops – popular with customers looking for a warm, rustic finish. This week, we’re at the other end of the spectrum: it’s time to talk contemporary style with our sleek and chic sparkle worktops.
When you’re thinking about redesigning your kitchen in a modern style, it’s tempting pick the latest trend and go all out. But the key to a contemporary kitchen isn’t passing fads; it’s timeless style.
Whether you want your kitchen to make a bold statement or be a haven of peace, the room itself should be a blank canvas that lets a few key elements shine through. Adding understated interest with a feature worktop is a great way to achieve this.
White-on-white will never lose its appeal: think industrial lofts, minimalist apartments and bright cafes, where subtle chic serves as a beautiful backdrop to feature lighting, carefully placed accessories, and a few bright splashes of colour.
Subtle doesn’t mean boring – the secret is to introduce texture and interest without spoiling clean lines. White subway tiles, high gloss units and white sparkle worktops would be a perfect match for a kitchen like this, reflecting and maximising light, and complementing each another beautifully.
Classic style and good taste are always current. Just as the Little Black Dress will forever be a staple of women’s wardrobes, black sparkle worktops are an enduring way to glam up your kitchen.
A monochrome scheme is a sophisticated choice, and looks wonderful with handleless doors and shining chrome accessories. A black-and-white palette needs a range of textures to prevent it looking too stark, though; the glitter finish on our black sparkle worktops is a welcome injection of brightness.
For modern, monochrome design fans, our white square edge sparkle worktops and black square edge sparkle worktops with reflective aluminium speckles are an increasingly popular choice.
While black and white sparkle worktops are considered the timeless classics, we also have a vibrant ruby red sparkle worktop in store – a bold choice for customers who love a BIG statement. Red sparkle worktops are the ideal finish for a 1960s diner-style kitchen, and can even look incredible paired with bleached wooden units and floors.
For a more natural, modern-rustic feel, our tawny sparkle worktop and cream sparkle worktop, combining sand and pebble colours, deliver beautiful results. Warmer than black or white, these mid-tone worktops set off organic colours and textures with an understated charm.
Hygienic, easy to clean and maintain, and great value for money, we have sparkle worktops to suit every modern kitchen – so come and take a look today.
