The eye-catching Arcos Edition from Schmidt combines two of 2018’s top kitchen trends

With 2018 upon us, now is the perfect time to plan that dream kitchen. Whether your current configuration needs a whole new rethink or you simply want a refresh of a tired scheme, Schmidt has the solution with a wide range of kitchen designs in an almost infinite combination of colours, tones, textures and finishes to suit any style and size of space. New for the coming season is the Murphy wood-effect door from the ever-popular Arcos Edition collection. Staying one step ahead of trend predictions for 2018, this laminate design has an ultra matt finish with a distinctive grain that creates an eye-catching impact as soon as you enter the room.

Kitchen design in 2018 is all about timber veneers, colour contrast, texture, metallics and the ongoing industrial look, making the Arcos Edition in the new wood effect the perfect partner for matt black appliances and accessories. Also available in Nano Black, Cliff, Marmor - a luxury marble style – and Oxid Blue, Arcos Edition is a versatile design that works wonderfully in both contemporary and classic interiors. For added interest, combine the Murphy and Nano Black contrasting drawer fronts to create a vintage, rustic feel with a reclaimed look and top with matching Nano Black laminate worktops.


Extra wide drawers with Latitude cutlery inset and sink drawer

No matter how large or small the kitchen, you can never have too much storage. With Schmidt’s Arcos Edition there’s something to suit every space and every culinary need. Extra wide cutlery drawers and internal organisers from the Latitude range provide ample room for cutlery as well as knives, utensils and baking tools and can effortlessly be fitted beneath the hob for quick and easy access. Extra large pull-outs can also be installed underneath the sink, offering instant access to cleaning products, brushes, cloths and dishwasher tablets. The sink area above meanwhile will create a chic, sleek look with its grooved draining board, two-tone dual material tap and undermounted stainless steel sink.

Perfect for family dining as well as entertaining, this complementary collection brings the open-plan scheme together – easy, effortless and exciting, it’s sure to take centre stage in any interior revamp.
