Material World: A Guide to Material Choices in Your Kube Kitchen

Published on 29 Dec 2023 | Kube News

The hub and heart of every home, the kitchen, should not only be functional but should exude a sense of style and character in a visually beautiful way.

When it comes to creating this stylish and functional space, the choice of materials and textures plays a pivotal role. From stone and steel to concrete, wood, and glass, the possibilities are endless. Here we offer a few of the most popular choices that can be incorporated into various elements of your kitchen, making it a place you want to spend quality time in.

Stone: Timeless Elegance

Stone countertops have long been associated with luxury and timeless sophistication. Whether you opt for classic marble, durable granite, or trendy quartz, stone adds a touch of opulence to your kitchen. Kube Kitchens offers a variety of stone and stone-effect options that not only look gorgeous but also stand the test of time. The natural veining and patterns inherent in stone surfaces create a unique and personalised look, making your kitchen truly one-of-a-kind.

Steel: Modern and Sleek

For the more modern, minimal kitchen, steel is an excellent choice, especially when used in creative ways. Steel is not just limited to appliances; incorporating it into various elements of your kitchen design can achieve a cohesive and polished look. Steel countertops, fronts and shelving not only provide a contemporary look but are also highly durable and resistant to heat and stains. Kube Kitchens' steel and steel-replica elements add an industrial edge to your cooking space, creating a clean aesthetic that minimalists will love.

Concrete: Industrial Charm

Concrete surfaces are not only robust and durable but also offer a unique, raw aesthetic that is increasingly popular in modern kitchen design. The versatility of concrete allows for custom finishes, ranging from a smooth and polished look to a more textured and rugged appearance. Pairing concrete with contrasting elements, like wood, can create a kitchen that is both edgy and inviting.

Wood: Warmth and Comfort

Wooden elements bring warmth and timelessness to any space. Whether it's wooden worktops, cabinets, plinths, or shelving, the natural beauty of wood adds a touch of cosiness and character. Kube Kitchens offers a range of wood options, from rich hardwoods to lighter, more contemporary finishes. The versatility of wood allows you to create a kitchen that seamlessly blends with various design styles, from rustic to modern.

Glass: Airy and Elegant

Incorporating glass into your kitchen design introduces a feel of spaciousness and elegance. Frosted, textured or patterned glass can also add a layer of sophistication and keep your design unique and eye-catching. Add creative lighting and you can quickly create a visual feast as the evening sets in, with an almost magic-like play of light and colour.

The materials and textures you choose for your new kitchen play a crucial role in defining its overall style, character and functionality. Selecting the right fusion of materials and textures will not only enhance the look and feel of your kitchen but also contribute to a space that reflects your unique flavour and personality.
