Zenith Inspiration

So, how you can you use a Zenith compact laminate worktop throughout your kitchen designs for a striking impact and on-trend interior design styles that will transform kitchen spaces?

Sleek & Contemporary

Zenith Styles: Sleek & Contemporary

The slim design with its solid black core lends itself naturally to modern styles. Decors including Lave, Magma, Caldeira and Alaska complement contemporary kitchen designs spectacularly, providing sleek and fashionable colours and patterns.

With their monochrome tones, decors such as these pair particularly well with more minimalist designs so they’re a perfect fit for contemporary spaces. Zenith can also be used with modern features such as induction hobs and undermount sinks with built-in drainer grooves thanks to it’s 100% waterproof solid core.

The core also means that curves can be created simply onsite which adds to an on-trend finish. To boost this modern look-and-feel splashbacks and upstands are also available for the Zenith range as a contemporary alternative to tiles, helping to extend the stylish decors throughout the kitchen and bring it all together.

Consider using these darker designs as a deep accent colour contrasted against bright, light and plain cupboards. For an even more sleek and modern look, opt for streamlined door frontals without handles for a truly state-of-the-art kitchen design.

Classic Country

Zenith Styles - Classic Country

If you’d prefer to go for something a little less contemporary, then rest assured Zenith solid laminate decors are available to suit too.

Simply choose more traditional style decors to create that classic country feel. Pyla, Topia, Colorado and Rouille are great choices to match this timeless kitchen design. These woodgrain designs are perfect for a chic kitchen environment.

Since Zenith can be fitted with a wide range of hobs and sinks, you can incorporate classic sink styles such as Belfast and Butler sinks for that retro feel. Of course, for that true country style, use timber style surfaces and accessories such as framed and shaker doors throughout the kitchen cabinets. Also, be sure to think about the addition of stand-alone range cookers like the classic Aga for a really authentic design that has the wow factor.

Urban Industrial

Zenith Styles - Urban Industrial

If you’re feeling a little more adventurous you may have set your sites on an open-plan, industrial kitchen. Try combining woods with natural, exposed elements such as brick walls or stone floors and mixed metals (think copper, brass and silver) for a really urban feel - be imaginative with the different materials and textures available.

Although there’s a wide range of Zenith decors Woodstone and Calderia complement innovative industrial designs particularly well. Backsplashes are a great alternative to tiles here too, expanding the industrial warehouse styles across the walls of the kitchen space. You may even want to consider cabinet framing or coordinating shelving for a consistent look-and-feel. 

To add a more unique spin on the industrial style, get creative with striking accent colours and pops of brighter shades using accessories to contrast with the concrete surfaces and timber frontals – or try adding in characterful metal handles too.
