I received a reader enquiry which I wanted to share, it’d be interesting to get your creative / interior views too? Here’s the question from Adam:
We are just about to start a fairly large Metod kitchen – I’m putting down a really nice tile by Grespania called Krimiss Sinter but I can’t decide between the Gloss White units with white outers or Gloss Cream with the dark wood outers which look great
What would you choose? Thanks
I took the image of Adam’s tiles and popped it next to the two kitchens he was talking about and I can see his point…. both ‘work’ but in different ways.
For me, the combination of the pale natural stone effect and the white will create a very light and airy kitchen suited to the following:
– More feminine styling
– Greenery, glass and paler shades for dressing items like blinds or appliances
– Silvers and nickels
– Could take either vintage or sleek modern accessories
The combination of the stone with the cream and dark wood is bolder:
– More punchy in feel
– Could take deeper, stronger colour styling, maybe teal or vivid yellow
– Would work with either traditional chrome or 2014’s brass or copper metals
– More suited to contemporary styling
Would you agree?
Which all go to prove that there’s a lot to think about when you pick your kitchen. The same tile will look totally different with different cabinet finishes and door combos. Think about what you want the whole feel of the kitchen to be, the end end end result, and consider that with every single decision made. We’re not limited by tile choice, tap finish, splash backs or even kettle colour anymore, anything goes, so plan ahead to get a perfect finish.
As to which one I prefer, well, it’s not my kitchen is it so I couldn’t possibly say!
