How to add texture into your kitchen

Would you like to know one of our secrets to creating a unique and creative kitchen? It’s texture!

Often overlooked, small details such as texture can easily add a splash of character and visual interest into your kitchen-living environment.

With this in mind, we have put together a few tips to help you incorporate a variety of contrasts and aesthetics to help bring your kitchen to life and create a visually pleasing environment that stimulates the senses.  From cabinets to tables, the combinations really are endless!

  1. 1.      Splashbacks:

The kitchen splashback is the perfect place to start experimenting with texture.  Why not add an Antique Glass finish that stands out amongst your cabinetry.  It allows you to create a visual masterpiece, integrating a slightly decorative pattern to a contemporary kitchen environment.

If you are looking for something slightly different, you could include a subtle veined Silestone splashback with its perfect blend of beauty and resilience.

  1. 2.      Kitchen tables & islands:

Dare to be different! A sprayed Hammered metal effect can produce a contrasting rustic, industrial and contemporary finish.  

If you’re looking for a warmer touch, a sprayed leather effect on the back of your island can create a soft and luxurious feel. 

Alternatively, incorporating wood into your design is a great way to bring the unique texture of natural materials to your kitchen.


  1. 3.      Cabinets:

Texture can be smooth! Gloss units are known for both their glamour and practicality, providing a perfect quality finish that helps to reflect light, creating the illusion of space in your kitchen.


This highly expressive pattern on the separating wall and cabinets provides an attractive contrast between the contemporary kitchen setting.


Remember, when incorporating texture into your kitchen, less is more! Keep to a few core textures, rather than incorporating every design element.

Taking your sink to new depths

Taking your sink to new depths

We have found the perfect solution to all your practical needs. German sink designers, Blanco, have created an extra-large Elon 8S Silgranite sink. Whether you use your sink for soaking lots of dishes or preparing large amounts of food, this stylish and convenient sink can help with all your requirements.  

When incorporating the Blanco sink into your kitchen, there is no need to fear the washing up!  With its boastful depth of 190mm, it is able to accommodate large items such as baking dishes, oven racks and roasting dishes.  Or perhaps you need more draining space?  This is possible with the removable wire drainer which sits over the sink bowl.  This truly functional sink also comes with a variety of optional features, including a high-quality compound chopping board and a multifunctional hook-in colander, which means you really can have all your eggs in one basket!

The Blanco Elon sink blends effortlessly into your kitchen, and with 9 different colours to choose from, your creativity can run wild. The sink is currently available in Silgranite, but we are sure that many other materials will be available in the not so distant future.

If you’d like more information about the Blanco sink, contact us on 01962 600182.
