Winter kitchen colour trends

September 5, 2018

Decorating in gunmetal may be popular as it’s such a versatile colour to work with. Whether you choose this colour for your walls or perhaps a sofa, there’s something in this shade to suit everyone. However, there’s now a much more innovative

way in which to introduce this to your kitchen. Did you know gunmetal is one of the latest winter colour trends to have burst onto the appliance, sink & tap scene? Well, we think you’ll agree this cool colour looks absolutely gorgeous.

Take the gunmetal trend to another level with a horizontal bank of Caple appliances including an oven and steam oven, microwave and warming drawer.

Kitchen colour

A grey colour palette has become a beautiful way in which to create a more elegant finish in a luxury home. Are you tired of white appliances? Perhaps you are looking to make a stylish statement in your kitchen. If so, a bank of gunmetal appliances will look great. After all, gunmetal is one of the most popular colour trends to have entered the home. So why not introduce this colour way to the room you spend most of your time in?

Our combination steam oven not only looks good

in this on-trend gunmetal finish but this appliance

will achieve excellent cooking results.

Colour co-ordination

We are huge fans of creating a kitchen you want to truly enjoy living in. However, we know colour co-ordination can be key to create a more cohesive space in which to prepare food, cook, entertain and relax. So it makes sense to consider how you can tie your scheme together. Your kitchen designer will no doubt recommend using the same appliance brand and the same colour-way throughout your scheme.

However, not all brands are in a position to be able to offer all of this in the same finish. So, it’s important to make your choice wisely. Otherwise, you may find you’ve got a few different brands fighting their way for space in what was initially a beautifully cohesive kitchen design.

This rich, deep metallic tone is surprisingly easy to co-ordinate with complementary grey shades from dove grey to charcoal. So, you could, for example, choose gunmetal kitchen cabinets in high gloss for a blended finish. If you choose a gunmetal grey sink and tap, you could team it with a tonal rich grey worktop. This masculine look will produce a stunning effect in the  modern home.

Our stylish Mode sink and Karns tap combination looks particularly smart in a gunmetal finish. Or why not choose our Ridley tap for an elegantly curved style?

Entertaining heaven

As so many of us practically ‘live’ in our kitchens, we need to ensure we have a fully equipped space in which to relax with our family and entertain. The open-plan kitchen is all about multi-functionality so it’s important to feature appliances, which will cater for this. So, we think you’ll need to consider a wine cabinet in gunmetal. This way, you can serve perfectly stored wine in beautiful surroundings when your guests arrive. 

Make entertaining a breeze with our beautiful dual zone under-counter wine cabinet in cool gunmetal.

You can even match your fridge-freezer with your gunmetal appliances for co-ordinated glamour in the kitchen

You will probably need a roomy fridge-freezer too, to keep all your food fresh and make a mouth-watering meal with it later. If you’re looking for a standalone feature piece, a cooling model in gunmetal grey should be your first option.
And, of course, choosing the right ovens will be the best way in which to produce a delicious dinner for friends and family.

Therefore, high performance models, from your combination steam oven to your microwave, should be top of your agenda – in a gunmetal finish, of course.
