Gloss appeal: nine ways to achieve this season’s favourite trend

Reflecting one of the top interior design trends, the latest decors available in the updated Formica® Gloss Panels and Formica® Vinyl doors ranges bring a fashionable, glossy look to your home to achieve a luxe finish for less.

Formica Gloss Panels and Formica Vinyl doors introduce nine, fresh decors, ranging from solids to woodgrains that are suitable for creating stylish drawers, doors and other vertical kitchen surfaces.

Design Centre Manager, Lorraine Brigdale said the updated Formica Gloss Panels and Formica Vinyl doors ranges are inspired by colours, textures and prints seen in all realms of fashion and design to add a new dimension to interior surfaces.

“The latest decor additions capture the most desirable colours and patterns making waves in international design capitals, to make it easier for homeowners and renovators to create contemporary looks that will remain fresh and on trend,” Lorraine said.

From the catwalk to the kitchen, the movement of ‘new neutrals’ means increasing attention is given to surface finishes. Helping homeowners and designers embrace this trend for a subdued palette, the Formica Gloss Panels and Formica Vinyl doors ranges boasts a number of earthy hues, ranging from Gentle Beige, Mulga and Streetlight, that will continue to be desirable for seasons to come.

As wood and other natural materials claim the title as the ‘new black’ in jewellery and garment design, the ranges make it easy to encapsulate natural beauty in kitchen spaces with the new woodgrains – Hotham Oak, Idyllic, Urban Wood, Silver Strata and Snow Elm.

Each of the colours within the Formica Gloss Panel range have matching gloss ABS Edging and can be easily colour coordinated with the Formica Vinyl doors range as well as the wider Formica Colour Range.

Formica Gloss Panels are not only fashionable but are also moisture resistant, easy to clean and backed by a seven year limited warranty to ensure good looks are the envy of others season after season.

What’s more, an eco-friendly surface solution can be achieved with Formica Gloss Panels in E0, due to the E0 range containing only half the recommended levels of formaldehyde suggested by various authorities.

Formica Vinyl doors are not only available in the desirable look of gloss; the range also offers a stylish velvet or beautiful pearl finish.
