After a sweltering summer, the clocks have gone back, the evenings are darker and the season of log fires and warm blankets is here at last. At Opticolour, we’re celebrating this cosier mood with the launch of four new colours that are perfect for the winter months and beyond.
Tapping into the current trend for dark interiors, we’re launching two dark options and two contrasting options that coordinate beautifully with the latest interior decoration styles.
There’s no denying we love the high-shine finish of glass splashbacks – but what if your space calls for something a little more understated? Step forward MATT glass – wall panels with a frosted surface that have all the sleek sophistication of regular glass without the highly reflective gloss. If you’re looking for new wall decor ideas, it’s definitely one to consider!
Natural stone wall panels look luxurious but can be a constant hassle to maintain. Here’s why stone-printed glass offers all the gain with none of the pain
Mirrored wall panels are gaining ground as an interiors trend, with tinted and antiqued options adding plenty of choice to the mix. Our silver, bronze and grey tinted mirror can now be toughened to make it heat and shatter resistant – which is great news for kitchens and the high-traffic areas of your home.
When designing a kitchen it’s important to ensure that your many surfaces – cabinet doors, worktops, wall decor, shelving, appliances and flooring – all work together. Most people hope that the overall impression will be harmonious, without a multitude of focal points that fight for attention, or a headache-inducing mix of colours, patterns and materials. Yet a bit of visual drama, or a couple of eye-catching elements that give the space character and personality, shouldn’t be left out completely. Read more
The doors and windows are open at Opticolour HQ in the heart of the Somerset countryside, so we can really enjoy the views of rolling green hills bathed in glorious sunshine. What a difference from last month, when the ground was covered in several inches of snow! To celebrate the arrival of spring we are launching four new vibrant shades of coloured glass that will bring that sunny feeling to your home all year round. Read more
Glass panels are often positioned between the upper and lower cabinets in a kitchen decor scheme – but because Opticolour glass is made to measure it can be cut and shaped to cover any area of your wall. This makes it perfect for creating a bold or unusual design statement that gives your space an original twist while still retaining a sleek and elegant appearance – such as putting glass panels behind cabinets.
Digitally printed glass offers a multitude of options for kitchen wall decor, from personal pictures or drawings to professional landscape photography. Skyline art lends itself particularly well to kitchen panels, as its extended rectangular shape is ideal above the worktop area and can easily be modified to fit the space required. While it would certainly suit a modern kitchen, it could also work as a spectacular finish in a more traditional interior. Read more
We are proud to supply Hampshire-based Two Guys Kitchens with glass wall coverings for the luxury interiors they design and install.
