Axiom by Formica®, the UK and Ireland's leading kitchen worktop and accessories range, offers the ultimate choice of designs, textures and materials to create the dream kitchen. Demand for design-led features has increased the importance in the choice of worktops and trends lean towards contemporary styling, clean lines, and sleek looks. Updating worktops with a modern finish can also refresh the look of more traditional cabinetry.
Surface treatments are very important in the design of today’s fashion-led kitchen as it is the main contributor to the overall look and feel of the whole property. Whether it’s modern, classic, homely or chic, surfaces can provide visually stunning results. As one of the main areas of focus, the choice of worktop has the greatest impact on the final look of the kitchen.
A comprehensive selection of textures are offered in the Axiom® range including premium, polished stone looks and natural stone effects. Lustre, a unique Axiom texture, captures the translucent effect of quartz particles found in natural stone. The even distribution of reflective and matt areas creates depth and intensifies the surface. Also available is Honed, which offers a highly tactile finish that emulates the look and feel of brush matt stone. Etchings, with subtle surface detail and a softly polished sheen give an authentic granite look. The Crystal range, offering a delicate shimmer, adds a touch of class to the most sophisticated of kitchen designs. One of the most popular worktops, Crystal in Everest, creates instant drama and impact, providing the distinct look of luxury at an affordable price.
With a strong focus on quality, style and innovation, the Axiom range also offers accessory additions such as splashbacks and upstands to complete the look. Hygienic, easy to install and maintain, splashbacks provide smooth, clean lines between a wall and worktop - an alternative to tiling and a fresh twist on traditional kitchen design. Available in a selection of contemporary designs such as granite, High Gloss or brushed aluminium, they enable a homeowner to create a signature feature in the kitchen.
Matching worktops and splashbacks add a touch of glamour to worksurfaces and walls combining tactile qualities with visual appeal. Teamed with a wide range of kitchen unit colours and focused lighting, an Axiom worktop or accessory can create the perfect finishing touch.
As an innovator and leader in the manufacture and design of kitchen worktops, Formica Group works closely with architects, designers and specifiers to offer innovative product designs and décors responding to British market needs. As texture is a predominant trend in British kitchen design, tactile qualities are as important as colour and design when choosing a kitchen worktop.
