Mix & play by combining three different designs from Schmidt, for something truly special
Planning for a new kitchen can be a difficult task when there is so much to choose from in terms of cabinetry style, finish and colour. Add worktops, appliances, lighting and finishing touches to the mix and it's easy to see why it can be a daunting thought.
So why not open up your clients' options and pick a small selection of their favourite designs and blend them together to create a unique, personal space that your clients will love?
Schmidt Kitchens have something for every taste and budget, from classic to contemporary and everything in between. Modern styles are on-trend while traditional looks are timeless and enduring.
The relaxed roomset shown above demonstrates how combining three different ranges can create a standout design ideal for modern living. The Take collection with its integrated handle features lacquered MDF door fronts and is shown in a warm Tonka colour. It's also available in 26 lacquer shades to suit the scheme, enabling you to be ultra-creative with the chosen colour.
Bringing a touch of natural organic beauty to the kitchen, the Arcos range - which is used in the alcove above the hob and sink - is a melamine fronted design shown here in Vintage Oak and also available in 30 colours. It adds a Nordic feel with its raw, stripped back look and is perfect for blending classic and contemporary style in one.
Also shown in a Tonka coloured finish is the Loft slab-fronted door, which is made from MDF and also comes in 26 lacquered colours. It's used beautifully in this scheme on the functional island unit as well as above the sink and hob alcove for a flush, seamless effect.
"This kitchen is a truly multifunctional design, both in terms of practicality and style," says David Roy, country manager for Schmidt UK. "The low-level Japanese-style island for instance is perfect for casual dining as well as for children to sit at and do their homework while parents prepare the evening meal. Open shelving adds a New York loft effect and is an ideal spot for storing cookery books or a much-loved vinyl collection."
Hardwearing worktops in Vintage Oak laminate complement the Arcos cabinetry and help to balance the kitchen with a symmetrical finish. "As well as the ultra-modern built-in hand grips, this Schmidt design comes with a variety of space-saving solutions," adds David. "The extractor hood for instance is cleverly concealed behind the Arcos cabinet front while extra deep pan drawers have plenty of room for larger pots and pans."
