When it comes to rooms that make a home, the kitchen is definitely up there. It’s key to our well-being, whether we’re rustling up a nourishing meal that makes us feel good or simply de-stressing by baking a cake. For many of us, it’s also where we come together to cook and eat with loved ones.
If, though, you’re looking around your kitchen and wishing it could be a more joyful room to spend time in, then be inspired to do something about it, whether that be with a refreshing update or a total overhaul. For the latter, make the process easy and enjoyable by going to Wickes. Their fantastic free design service will help bring your dream kitchen to life, from initial ideas to a fabulous end result – as the owners of this stunning kitchen found.
They asked Wickes to help them transform a large open room into a practical kitchen with plenty of storage which was also a warm and welcoming family space. The final design was a super-stylish and characterful two-tone look that combines a chic navy blue with a delicate matt powder grey. Seating at the island connects the living and dining area to the kitchen and the fridge and dishwasher are integrated for a streamlined look. There’s also a big tick for storage with larger units on either side of the fridge, plus a statement larder unit (including a wine rack), that stands alone to resemble a dresser. This is Wickes’ Milton range, a modern Shaker look that offers the beauty of natural wood with the strength of the latest durable synthetic materials and is available in four rich shades. It is just one of over 40 high-end ranges, from classic to modern, and available in a palette of on-trend colours that can be found in the Wickes Showroom Kitchen collection.
Wickes also has everything you need to complete or update your kitchen including branded appliances with special cooking functions and integrated chargers for gadgets, plus the all-important handles, sinks, and taps. Worktops are available in a huge variety of colours, thicknesses, and materials including granite, marble, solid wood, and laminates. When deciding on a splashback, choose from a wide selection of tiles from the classic Metro tile pictured, to beautifully patterned.
Pendant lights inject a chic design element; choose from scandi, vintage, industrial and modern. And don’t forget the flooring – as well as wood-effect tiles, take a look at porcelain, laminate, luxury vinyl, and solid wood. Your dream kitchen starts here!
