Get the Look: Unicorn Kitchens

Get the Look: Unicorn Kitchens


Posted 11th January

It's time to get the pastels and glitter out again, because anything and everthing unicorn is back!

Securing its place in the design Hall of Fame, unicorn-inspired makes, bakes, and interiors are here to stay for 2018. So we've spoken to B&Q who have teamed up with Pinterest to give you the ultimate unicorn kitchen design!

 

Get the look

It has to be white for your kitchen’s cabinets and drawers, and we think the ice white finish of the IT Santini Gloss White Slab kitchen from B&Q is a perfect foundation for this soft style; partner it with a pale worktop for a seamless look! We love the Nordic Earthstone Worktop - a speckled grey and white surface that has the luxury feel of a bespoke worktop without the expense.

Bring these to life with pastel shades and a sprinkle of sparkle on the walls. Choose between a glitter paint, such as the Colours Feature Wall Angelic Sparkle Emulsion paint, which already has glittery flecks in the paint mixture, or pick up a separate glitter packet and mix to create your preferred finish.

 

Alternatively, introduce wallpaper to enjoy subtle patterns. Our Contour Grey Marble Marquetry Wallpaper combines two key looks from this trend - a delicate marble pattern and flashes of gold. And for splash zones, mirror the polished finish of the cabinetry with gloss wall tiles in cute shades, such as these Trentie Blue Gloss Ceramic Wall Tiles.

Add further flashes of subtle colour and gold accents to complete your unicorn-inspired kitchen. These Gold-effect T-bar Cabinet Handles are a simple and understated way to work the trend, while the Honor Champagne Pendant Ceiling Light boasts a bell-shaped glass dome in a soft shade of Champagne – a real showstopper. Add further lighting with candles in multi-coloured ribbed glass tealight holders – just the thing for a little twilight magic.
