Kitchen Trends - Matte Lacquer Handleless

handleless kitchens
The sleek, elegant look which a Handleless kitchen can empower a kitchen with has been a look which has gathered in popularity over the last five years. The slab doors which are used can produce clear geometric lines for a chic uncomplicated look. Whereas gloss finish doors are still the most popular finish to be requested from customers to our showroom in Enfield, London, matte lacquer colours are moving to the fore.

White is the most popular colour whether the kitchen is gloss or not. As white can be clinical especially when incorporated into a handleless kitchen, wood grains are often mixed with it to add some warmth to the kitchen. Soothing wood species such as walnut, wenge and oak can be blended to add a contrast and welcoming feel to what would otherwise be a cold look if the kitchen were all white.
White can be used as the predominant colour intermixed with earthy tones such as browns or greys to soften the austere feel of white. We have recently added a display to our showroom which demonstrates how white can be mixed this way.

The combining of two colours or finishes is a trend which has permeated through modern, contemporary and traditional looks. Contrast can also be injected into the kitchen by the use of colour or texture in the splash-backs or worktops if you are unsure of mixing two colours in your kitchen. With quartz worktops now available in hundreds of colours and finishes (Consentino are to produce a worksurface with the look and feel of denim – I kid you not!) and splash-backs also available in many options, a single matte lacquer colour need not lead to a clinical feel in your kitchen.
