After looking at the seaside chic of Coastal Retreat last month, this time we’re all about Nordic style. Scandinavian design has long been a favourite of interior designers and architects alike and it’s renowned for its simple sophistication – clean lines, natural materials and plenty of white and wood. Rangemaster has all you need to get the look with its latest brochure, which showcases six on-trend styles for your kitchen and how to achieve a similar effect with focal point cookers as well as complementary accessories, fixtures and fittings. Take this kitchen for instance – there’s something really relaxed about this one; it avoids the fully fitted look and goes for a more eclectic approach with freestanding and mobile trolleys and units, a handy breakfast bar, timber table and fresh white surfaces with brick tiles and painted wooden flooring contrasted with a deep charcoal feature area on the wall. Add pops of colour with bold worktop accessories – chopping boards, teapots, trays, clocks, utensils and tea towels can all add personality and pizzazz to the space.
Rangemaster has the perfect fit for this Scandi look. Check out the Hi-LITE, Nexus and Professional Deluxe designs. Fresh and modern, the Hi-LITE features a striking illuminated fascia for grabbing your attention after dark while the choice of five colours, three widths and induction or dual fuel means there’s something for everyone. Nexus in Slate is on my wishlist as it’s a contemporary design that easily slips into a classic room scheme too, so if you change your décor in years to come, you know your Rangemaster is going to fit in beautifully. For those who love the professional look and feel, you can’t go wrong with the Professional Deluxe in sturdy stainless steel.
Create the look with our pick of this month’s best buys, which are ideal for bringing a touch of Nordic chic into your home. The great thing about them is that they can be mixed and matched with other colours, tones, materials and finishes and can easily be updated when you fancy a change…
