If you want to be really “cutting edge” with kitchen design, then the latest emerging trend has taken the concept of textured surfaces on a step further to give you the concrete finish kitchen. At first, the idea of a concrete look kitchen may seem rather odd but or daring, with the right product, it can give a stunningly modern and practical look.
Concrete, real or simulated using textured printed veneers, can come in numerous finishes, colours and textures – don’t just think dull grey building foundation slabs. Polished concrete, coloured concrete, gloss sealed concrete, glass impregnated concrete – you can really go wild if you want to.
Also, combining that concrete look with other more traditional kitchen materials and finishes can act as a real feature to an otherwise traditional looking kitchen.
At Moiety Kitchens, we love working with new materials and looks and the kitchen suppliers we work with are always at the forefront of innovation in kitchen materials.
German kitchen manufacturer Warendorf recently showed a concrete finish kitchen at the Living Kitchen exhibition in Cologne, Germany. Here they were displaying a real concrete finish mixed with oak and walnut as contrasting textures.
No doubt this is a trend that will grow over the next 12 months and already Leicht and Bauformat have added concrete effect kitchen units to their ranges – more will be following.
