New Modular Bathroom Furniture for Dramatic Look

Bathroom design is not always cool, calm and sophisticated, sometimes it is bold and dramatic and this new furniture from Utopia is perfect for those looking for something different.

The Lustre range combines sculptural shapes, tactile surfaces, stunning mood lighting and a high-quality Bluetooth sound system which adds the final touch of luxury. Designed to be a feast for all of the senses the range offers silky smooth surfaces and fabulous colour combinations to create a striking design.

Opula offers pure lines to create fabulous sculptural forms, oozing with decadent opulence. The addition of a touch of Copper in subtle trims to beautifully curved basins and the gorgeous Copper taps sets this collection apart.

The Star collection also uses Copper and busts of accent colour across simple shapes to dramatic effect.

The Hottest Trends For Kitchens

Town  Country Islington - web 

 

The Hottest Trends for Kitchens This Year

It has been a great year for kitchens so far with some fantastic new colours and finishes emerging.  Take a look at this guide and learn how to tap into this year’s hottest trends.

Industrial design is a style that has grown in recent years, particularly in Scandinavia and the trend looks set to continue.  This look is characterised by details such as exposed bricks and pipes, rustic metals and minimalist furniture.  The trend is inspired by factory spaces, but a toned down version can look equally at home within our domestic environment.

As discussed in previous blogs the use of predominantly grey finishes that match with rustic themes will be an ideal options for those seeking the stripped-back, industrial look in their kitchen.

Having clutter-free worktops is an emerging interior design trend whatever make of worktop is installed!  It can open up the space of a kitchen and allows the home cook to calmly prepare their food at a clear surface. The options for cabinetry are developing to enable this layout, carrying various compartments and shelves for everything from seasoning and oils to paper towels and tea bags. Clear worktops can also create the illusion of a larger kitchen space, so for consumers with a smaller kitchen environment it’s well worth considering having a tidy-up!

Hot on the heels of grey, we’re experiencing a rise in popularity of black and white tones in the kitchen. These colours can work to varying degrees, whether it's entire cabinets, worktops or appliances, or subtle hues coming through in various details and accents such as kitchen accessories. While black and white have always been popular finishes, demand for grey surfaces of all shades, remains a key trend for 2017.

Colour can then be added as splashes of bright colour which in future can be changed without major pricing implications. Single feature walls are not as popular.  We are seeing a move towards using more creative paint finishes to add colour, the use of bands, blocks or subtle stripes that add style in a really creative way.  Using an unexpected pattern like a triangle for example is a much more creative way to add bold colour to an area, just like when you choose a great pair of shoes, a tie or special jewellery, it’s those little details that can really complete your look.

To give your décor longevity choose colours that make you feel happy , that way you will ensure that you will love them for many years to come . By picking these colours up in your accessories which you can change easily you will keep your room looking fresh and up to date!

Warm and Welcoming Kitchen

 

Warm and Welcoming Kitchen

When remodelling your home, it pays to have clear vision and for Mel and Neil of Whitnash, the new family kitchen was always a major discussion point.

“It was a major refurbishment,” says Mel. “At one point, there was no back wall to the house and all the internal walls had gone too. However the ideas we had kept us going – we knew in the end it would all be worth it.”

The couple had heard about Modern Homes from a friend who’d previously had a kitchen and bathroom done. Neil also worked with Tina’s (the owner of Modern Homes) husband, so the combination of the two recommendations interested them enough to pay a visit.

On this particular job, Mel and Neil already had builders and carpenters in place, so our role was specifically kitchen design and supply (including appliances). Mel came with some good ideas of her own as to the new layout and after discussions, we made a few suggestions to the original plans.

“I’m so glad Tina came up with the ideas she did,” says Mel. “Had we stayed with our original plans, we wouldn’t have had enough cupboards and the flow wouldn’t have felt right. Happily though – it’s all perfect and we’re delighted with it."

Now the overall feel of the kitchen is modern but very warm and welcoming, with a timeless look that won’t date easily.

“I love so many things about the kitchen,” says Mel. “The peninsula is beautiful and hugely practical – there’s so much room to put things when I’m cooking, rather than having to squeeze round chopping boards and appliances. The induction hob is a big hit too. It's even better than cooking on gas (which required some converting from Tina).

Yates2

“The two full sized ovens also make baking a real joy. The bottom oven also has a steam function, which I don’t use often but it’s really useful when I do need it.  We’re really happy with how everything turned out and the ‘wow’ factor is definitely there.”

To christen the kitchen officially, they recently held a Thank You party for the neighbours, which garnered lots of admiration. “Our ‘hotel house’ is now complete,” says Mel. “2016 was all about work, and we’re looking forward to 2017, relaxing in our new-look home.”

Planning your Perfect Bathroom

-Clotted-Cream-3480-Cameo-8-Bathlow web 

Bath from Utopia

A step by step guide to planning your perfect bathroom

Planning a new bathroom can seem like a daunting task especially when there are so many options when it comes to showers, baths and storage - where do you start and what about the plumbing!

As with most tasks the best place to start is with research and planning. 

Begin with an accurate measure of your current bathroom and note where the existing fittings are.  Next consider how it works for you now, what do you like and what would you like to change?  Also think about what would be on your ultimate wish list, there are often cost effective alternatives to what you want.

Have a look around for inspiration, in magazines, on the web and find some designs and products you like.  Take these to your local independent retailer.  You will be amazed at how competitive they can be on price and you get so much more from them in terms of design expertise and customer care.

A good bathroom designer will help you look at all alternatives, the best type of furniture for your room and lifestyle.  They can advise on the relative merits of different furniture, fitted, modular and free standing.

It is a good idea to think about how the bathroom needs to function before you consider the look and design.  There is a wealth of choice when it comes to colours and finishes of furniture and this can be thought about once you know what you want the room to offer in terms of functionality.  Your designer will add value by recommending what tiles and accessories will match your chosen furniture, ensuring a coordinated look.

Sanitaryware is next – the style will be dictated by the choices you have already made with regards to furniture.  Things can get technical when it comes to taps and showers as the water pressure available in your home needs to be taken into account - this is where some expert advice can save you making a costly mistake.

Increasingly we are seeing customers that want advice on replacing the bath with a shower.   There are many factors to take into account when making this decision.  Should you go for a modern walk in power shower or a traditional freestanding bath that could be the focal point of a room?

There are a vast selection of new products that cater for your needs, so again an independent designer that recommends from a number of different manufacturers will give you the best choices.

Bathroom tiling is now an important part of the design and not just something that is added around the bath and as a splashback to the basin.  Innovative materials offer manmade material that look and feel like natural stone, adding interest.  Colours can be introduced to complement or contrast with them, again providing individuality in designs.

Finally lighting, a well-lit bathroom will cater for tasks and create an ambiance when you want to relax. It is possible to add lighting almost anywhere now, in plinths and wall recesses as well as in the ceiling and around mirrors.

The process should be stress free and fun - why not call in and speak with one of our experienced bathroom designers and begin your journey to a perfect bathroom.
