Just as variety is the spice of life, mixed materials are big news in the world of kitchens. From metal veneers like copper verdigris and pewter to concrete and stone, not to mention stunning naturally grained timbers such as walnut and traditional oak, combining just the right mix of finishes will transform a scheme from mundane to magical. If you’re unsure where to start, our Deputy Editor Hugh has put together a stunning guide to getting that perfect blend in Mixed Signals on page 94. In fact, all our real-life kitchens this issue are testament to just how successful a mixed material scheme can be. In Character Story, page 26, Clare and Mike Singer brought personality aplenty into their previously featureless apartment by combining American Black walnut cabinetry with sintered stone surfaces, plus backlit marble for an extra special touch. While an ultra-moden laquered finish paired with absoutely stunning porcelain surfaces and mirrored glass offer a sophisticated look for a Cardiff townhouse – read Mirror Image on page 40 to find out more. Contrasts are key to the appeal of Craig’s kitchen in Grand Central, page 52, where concrete-style downstands meet beautifully textured warm oak floors, a juxtaposition of traditional and industrial which really makes an impact. Of course, you don’t have to go the whole hog when introducing different elements. Just a hint of variety, for example introducing brass fittings and quartz surfaces, is enough to make a kitchen design really pop – A Sweet Escape on page 62 is the perfect example. Yet at the other end of the spectrum, multiple finishes have been incorporated into the kitchen featured within New Horizons, page 74, to great effect – including 100-year-old bricks, concrete and quartz, to name but a few.
