I went to visit my client Capricorn Kitchens this week to sort out their advertising with Your Move Magazine and whilst I was there I had a little look at their kitchens for my own house project. The house I'm buying is a Victorian terraced property that needs renovating throughout but until now, I've been holding off from looking at anything interior design related because I was apprehensive about the house sale going through properly. Although I'm still waiting for an update from the solicitor, I thought it won't hurt to start having a little look! Plus, the kitchen is the perfect place to begin as it's the hub of your home.
I was like a kid in a sweet shop admiring all the latest styles and finishes within their showroom. Jason showed me how the finishes can be mixed and matched to create different looks and I came to the conclusion that I love a mix of contrasting textures. A white marble top mixed with a natural looking wood and a matt pale grey door were my favourite finishes out of them all. The kitchen doors were available in a matt lacquered shaker style without handles and they were the perfect balance of a traditional look with a modern twist. I thought they would sit perfectly within a Victorian home to compliment the original period features.
Jason explained that you can get a marble look for a more affordable price by opting for a marble effect in a laminate work top finish instead of the pricier natural stone tops. I have created a mood board for the kitchen look that I'm trying to achieve. I'd love to know what you think!
