From Smeg’s statement green ovens to an array of new bench top and cupboard front colours from kaboodle kitchen, Autumn is shaping up to be a vibrant season for kitchen design.
kaboodle kitchen: The DIY kitchen brand has recently introduced six new colours to its collection of doors and panels. Matte black, smoked grey, a rich green, deep navy and two concrete looks round out the trend-driven line-up.
Kaboodle has also introduced a range of modular and cut to measure laminate bench tops in a host of finishes from marble to stone and timber. The range of modular laminate, bamboo and timber bench tops are available in matte and gloss finishes and in standard depths of 600mm or 900mm, with various profiles depending on colour.
Smeg latest: In what is possibly a nod to the sustainability trend, the latest Smeg ovens are available in two shades of green for a real kitchen statement. For the brand’s iconic ‘Victoria’ model there’s a soft, vintage pastel green and the ‘Portofino’ oven is now available in a deep, rich olive green inspired by the Italian Riviera.
And if you like your kitchen statements to be of a less permanent variety you might be interested in Smeg’s new blender created in collaboration with the Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana. The latest offering is part o the ‘Sicily is my Love’ collection that includes a toaster, kettle and citrus juicer too.
