Embrace the dark side trend with Königstone
This year has seen a rise in popularity for dark coloured kitchens as people look to create that ever-trendy industrial flair in their homes, and with Königstone’s dark coloured worktops, homeowners can easily incorporate the popular style into their kitchen scheme. Whether it’s a ‘moody blues’ scheme or black colours or any dark shade in between, Königstone offers the perfect surface to complement any kitchen.
Echoing classic industrial materials is Königstone’s Dolomite (pictured) from the Königquartz range while Black Nova, Cosmo Star and Tungsten add rich tones commonly seen in sleek, contemporary designs. The glossy finish of these worktops ensures that natural light is still reflected off the surface, despite the dark shade, and opens up the kitchen space.
However, if homeowners are concerned about having to compromise on the appearance of space, they can balance the dark worktops with lighter tones, such as pale cabinetry or light metallic handle trims.
Traditionally, people choose deeper tones for their worktops as they hide scratches, scrapes and stains, but with a Königstone worktop, homeowners can opt for the colour that best suits their dream industrial style kitchen without worrying about whether damage will show; Königstone quartz worktops are hard-wearing and scratch-, stain-, and heat-resistant. So, homeowners can simply choose their ideal dark shade and Königstone will do the rest.
