The high gloss finish

A high gloss finish

If you’re looking for a wow-factor finish to your kitchen, you can’t get much better than the high gloss finish. High gloss is definitely one of the more defining finishes that a person can choose, and really works well with a modern and contemporary style kitchen. But how else can you feature high gloss in your kitchen and what appliances work best with the look?

Completing the high gloss look

Ideal #1 Use Corian

No matter what colour scheme you’ve opted for, Corian is a great match for a gloss finish kitchen. The natural shine and smooth finish keep the trend of a seamless, clean and efficient kitchen space while minimising maintenance of your final design. Corian is often used to enhance and personalise your kitchen space as it can be molded and shaped to match the straight or curved lines in your kitchen – so if you want unique cupboards and worktops, or want to integrate a personalised feature, always opt for Corian.

Idea #2 Brushed steel appliances

Brushed steel offers a fantastic contrast to high gloss furnishings while completing the contemporary theme. The colder, smoother textures of brushed steel appliances still catch the light, but add a bit of depth to your kitchen too.

Appliances such as fridges and ovens can also be integrated into the wall paneling, and brushed steel finishes can be found in many appliances by Neff. You could also opt for brushed steel taps and light fittings for a coherent look.

The induction hob offers another opportunity to use brushed steel. A sleek, stylish angled Neff extractor fan adds also contrast to the vertical lines achieved with paneling and the horizontal lines created by worktops and islands.

Idea #3 A touch of texture

While high gloss looks great, texture is important too, giving your home a warmer, less clinical look. You could either opt for an entirely different texture, such as wood, to pair with your high gloss finish, and use for your table or breakfast bar, or opt for a textured focal point – for example a textured panel splashback.

Idea #4 Complementary flooring

It’s easy to underestimate the power of flooring on the overall look and feel of your kitchen. Ceramic tiles, slate flooring and wooden flooring all offer great contrasts and depth to high gloss finishes. If you’ve already opted for non-gloss appliances and furnishings, you could go high gloss with your floor, using laminate or vinyl.

Led by Design: A Sleek, Luxurious, Contemporary KitchenDesign was of paramount importance for Derick and Mandy when it came to choosing a kitchen company to replace the kitchen in their Barrowford home.They approached three other kitchen companies but Kitchen Design Centre and Designer Suzanne Ryan were the obvious choice: Kitchen Design Centre's design focus, instead of a heavy sales approach impressed them and they were delighted with Suzanne's first design, feeling she understood the brief to create a high-end kitchen.Suzanne changed the layout of the kitchen space completely. Their existing kitchen lacked flair, consisting of a peninsular-based layout which resulted in a lot of wasted space. She totally reconfigured it, creating a much more open space and introduced a large island in the middle of the kitchen which not only creates a focal point in the room but also provides the perfect dining area.To read more about this project, head to the link in the bio.
