In frame and in colour - Benchmarx launches four new kitchen ranges
Being able to recommend products that offer quality finishes and match the latest kitchen trends is vital when it comes to meeting customer needs. Now, trade-only supplier of high-quality rigid kitchens, Benchmarx Kitchens and Joinery, has launched four new ranges to its collections to ensure fitters can do just that and, importantly, at the right price.
New colour options have been added to the ever-popular Sherwood, Eton and Soho collections alongside a brand new, premium in-frame kitchen in the shape of the Chelsea Matt Dove Grey range.
All provide the hard-wearing finishes for homeowners wanting both style, longevity and practicality, and all can be tailored to suit them and the space they have available.
Chelsea Matt Dove Grey In-frame kitchen
New for May 2017, the stunning Chelsea Matt Dove Grey kitchen from Benchmarx sees Benchmarx move into the more premium end of the market and offers the latest 'in-frame' being seen in high-end designer kitchens.
The door and drawer fronts are neatly framed within one-piece cabinetry to make this a striking feature in its own right, whilst the muted shade of Matt Dove Grey is being seen across top end projects across the country.
The beautiful lacquered finish to both sides of the doors adds a premium finish. Fit with cornicing for timeless appeal or suggest going without for a bold, contemporary overall look.
This soft shade works brilliantly with solid wood worktop for a warm look, or, for a very different finish, team the Chelsea kitchen with a bold work surface like the Apollo Granite in Silver Paradiso.
This style lends itself to creating something unique too. So, for customers wanting something different, try suggesting worktops and coordinating side panels to create an island and breakfast bar, or a multi-function, split-level island. Consider having one level that is comfortable to stand at and another to sit at without the need for high bar stools.
Working with the design team at your chosen Benchmarx means you can even incorporate additional storage and display space within the finished design with ease too.
The Sherwood Charcoal Range
The Sherwood Charcoal range is ideal for those wanting to add a bold depth to their kitchen style or even simply create an eye-catching contrast across their chosen cabinetry.
The rich, dark Charcoal colourway is a welcome addition to the Sherwood collection, which includes Bone White and Grey options, for a mix and match kitchen that works with your style.
Giving the best of both worlds, it has the look and feel of painted wood, right down to the grain effect, but with a durable PVC coating.
Use just the Charcoal cabinet shade for an on-trend, opulent look and contrast with a beautiful, veined, white Apollo Quartz worktop. Continue in place of a tiled splashback as an eye-catching feature.
For a timeless style, combine this intense Charcoal shade with Sherwood Grey or Bone White units for a luxurious look. Mix and match worktops too - real wood and white, square-edged Apollo Slab work to great effect.
Larder units and curved corners are available across this range to ensure customers can use every bit of space effortlessly, and classic and contemporary cornicing means you can adapt the overall look to suit as needed.
Matt Dove Grey joins the Eton Range
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 feel, which is ideal for customers to recreate at home. 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 perfect to bring this look to life. And, with matt cupboard finishes making a statement in designer kitchens at the moment, this latest collection ensures your customers can have a top-end look at an affordable price too.
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.
Team this with contemporary square-edged work surfaces and you have a luxurious finish which cannot fail to impress.
Going Grey with Soho
There's no mistaking that gloss grey continues to be a staple in the world of interiors - and not without good reason.
Its versatility and neutral tone mean it is the perfect base to create a cool, sleek backdrop that can brighten a room whilst leaving homeowners free to add interest with the pops of colour through accessories and splashbacks.
Bringing a new dimension to its Soho kitchen range, Benchmarx has added a fresh Gloss Light Grey finish to this collection, to offer a crisp, contemporary appearance and a high shine finish.
ABS edging ensures that the Soho range is moisture resistant and as hard-wearing as it is stylish and discreet, built-in edge handles complete the sleek look of this range.
Additional curved units, pillar stands, corner solutions and aluminium glass doors are also all available within this range, to ensure customers can create a unique look that works for them.
