High Class Matt - Benchmarx adds Matt Dove Grey to Eton Range
The new Eton Matt Dove Grey kitchen from Benchmarx Kitchens and Joinery is an ideal choice to add a high-end designer feel to the latest softer, industrial look. Prices start from around £755 for an eight-cupboard kitchen
Turn the clock back and the mention of an industrial look meant creating a kitchen worthy of a professional chef, complete with a great deal of stainless steel on show.
Now the latest 2017 industrial trend has a much more welcoming, homely feel. Metal, wood, exposed brickwork and crisp metro tiles with contrasting black grout, all work together to create a look that will draw people into the kitchen.
The addition of the brand-new Matt Dove Grey finish to the ever-popular Eton range from Benchmarx Kitchens and Joinery, is ideal to bring this look to life. And, with matt cupboard finishes making a statement in designer kitchens at the moment, this latest collection ensures you can have a top-end look at an affordable price.
As with the existing gloss finishes in the Eton collection, the new Matt Dove Grey option features a highly durable PVC door foil and moisture-resistant ABS edging, to make this a hard-wearing choice that will remain looking good despite the most hectic family lifestyle.
Mix with slim bar handles and a stainless-steel splashback for a look that is striking and incredibly inviting.
Adding square-edged work surfaces will also give an instant luxurious finish to your kitchen that cannot fail to impress. Look out for the latest laminate options which have realistic grain patterns and textures, such as the ‘Silver Oak Grain’ (pictured) or the concrete effect ‘Woodstone Blanc’ worktops, and which upgrade the overall finish.
The key to making this softer industrial look a success is very much in the mix of textures you choose. Combining ‘new’ with ‘natural’ will help give the weathered look that is so important here.
Battered metal pans and roughly shaped wooden bowls give an excellent contrast to the crispness of new, matt Eton cabinetry so consider incorporating open shelves to show off your favourite pieces. Where space allows, a split-level island is an ideal location for open shelving that has added visual impact. Try using worktops and panel pieces to make bespoke shelving which blends seamlessly into the rest of the kitchen.
Benchmarx also offers a full range of flooring to complete this vintage industrial look, including hard-wearing laminates that offer great alternative to wood and can be used in kitchens where splashes are inevitable.
Finally, don’t forget to build lighting to your scheme as this can have an important effect on the overall finished look. Making the most of available natural light is a must and, where this is in short supply, be sure to incorporate plinth or under cupboard lighting, which will help soften sharper metal details.
