Wickes Launches Brand New Kitchen Range In Trending Colours

Wickes Tiverton Pebble

If there’s one thing interior experts can agree on, it’s that the classical Shaker style kitchen continues to be a best-seller. Luckily for kitchen renovators, Wickes is proud to be introducing three bold and stylish new colourways to two of its most popular Shaker kitchen designs. These three on-trend and eye-catching new options: calming Cloudy Blue, bold and eye-catching Anthracite and cool Pebble, ensure every customer’s taste is catered for in this range of premium Shaker styles.  

Wickes has used the expert insight of leading Colour Consultant Karen Haller to highlight the importance of colour choice in a kitchen space, and the effective use of the three new Wickes colourways.

Brand new to the increasingly popular Chester kitchen range, the soft and calming Cloudy Blue colourway will be available from December 2021. Allowing home improvers to bring a cool pop of colour into kitchen spaces, this on-trend Cloudy Blue hue pairs perfectly with the Chic and modern look of the brand's only narrow-framed Shaker. Soft blue is known to be a calming colour, evoking the feeling of the outdoors, bringing shades of river and sky into your kitchen for a truly relaxing feel and will mix well with the brand's existing Chester grey kitchen or Chester Midnight Blue. 

Karen Haller says: “Soft and dusky blues have the welcome effect of soothing the mind. This hue affects us mentally, rather than the physical reaction we have to energising red. Darker blues have the effect of stimulating the mind and aid focused concentration whilst the lighter, soft blues aid in creating a calming effect to help put the mind at ease”.

The classic Shaker Tiverton kitchen will also be available in a new colourway from December - the eye-catching, opulent shade Anthracite. The sophisticated and bold colour, evokes both luxury and opulence Designed to turn heads, this style pairs brilliantly with brass or gold handles, and can easily be mixed and matched with existing colours in the Tiverton palette to create a truly unique and stylish effect: 

Karen Haller says: “Based on the naturally occurring Anthracite, this almost black colour is deep and rich, ideal for the home that wants to create a sense of drama within a minimalist design style whether that is for spacious or compact rooms with using a variety of textures. Unlike its paler grey cousin that recedes, this bold colour commands attention and will take centre stage in any space.”

Finally, the Tiverton range is also adding a second new shade to its range from this December - Pebble. The earthy and warm Pebble hue is the perfect choice for a new age farmhouse style, Pebble’s natural tones move away from the traditional cream of a country kitchen, meaning that it can work beautifully with both classic and contemporary styling. This tone is the perfect choice for any home improver looking to create a down to earth, country style kitchen.

Karen Haller says: “This soft, cool grey recedes meaning it doesn’t detract from brighter accessories or wall colours you want to showcase. It doesn’t ask a lot of you emotionally which is why some find soft, pale greys calming and provides space to take a step back, be still and assess.”

All new ranges on sale from 20th December 2021.
