Kitchen design trend: Keep it white and fresh

Spring has at last brought some nice weather to Cheshire. And with it comes the latest kitchen design trend – fresh white kitchen worktop.

At Cheshire Graniteline we work closely with customers to design their ideal kitchens, with worktops made from only the finest stone cuts. We’d like to show off a few of the most recent jobs we’ve worked on that have one thing in common – brilliant whites and deep light-dark contrasts.

Whether you want to achieve a traditional look, a modern feel, or something in between dark and light contrast is the key to staying on trend in 2016.

In this ‘traditional-with-a-twist’ kitchen job that we recently completed in our hometown of Middlewich we’ve tried to achieve balance between the scarred Angelo White Quartz worktop and the deep grey kitchen cabinets to give the new build house a more traditional feel.

The key is in the details. The sink unit, cooker and wooden cabinets all say old country home. But the brilliant white Quartz worktop, up to date handles and small embellishes like a pop-up plug socket unit give the kitchen a modern twist.

The harmony between the shiny white worktop and muted grey cabinets (matched by the window frames) give the room an at peace feel.

This recent Holmes Chapel kitchen makeover is another one using two-tone design to great effect. The sheer, glossy white finish on the handle-free cabinets really sets of the Silestone with a smooth Unsui Suede finish. Clever use of natural wood complements the green garden space clearly visible through large drawback windows.

Minimalism is hugely popular among people with busy lives. Clean lines and smooth design has a calming effect and is a great way to relax the mind after a busy day.

In this project, the clean lines have been carried over through the rest of the rest of the open-plan space. It even continues outside where the dark patio crisply meets the garden.

This kitchen goes to prove that bold white two-tone designs aren’t just for modern or minimalist kitchen designs. This recent project, which we are incredibly proud of, uses two contrasting quartz worktops – Angelo White and dark Star Galaxy.

This spacious design has tons of room for storage and the quaint details like the joinery on cabinets and the old-fashioned range cooker make for a wonderful traditional feel.

The huge all-white kitchen island is the major feature of this room and of family life. It is the main food preperation area and there is plenty of room for children and adults to sit at the breakfast bar in the morning. By differentiating the colour scheme on the cerntre island from the darker side unit, the owner has distinguished this as the key item in the room.
