Who are Karonia and why are they important?
Since the 1990s, the team at Karonia have been perfecting the art of producing solid work surfaces. As a pioneer in the industry, they’re a brand that pride themselves on quality of craftsmanship and offering customers the freedom of choice in quality, affordable worktops.
What aesthetic features do Mistral acrylic worktops have?
Mistral have managed to perfectly capture the essence of quartz and granite in their acrylic-based designs, but with the added practicality that acrylic gives and without the price tag. This means that you can get the great look and feel
of the natural materials, but with the durability and hygiene that their acrylic base offers. With the solid surface smooth finish, Mistral worktops look simply stunning, whilst still being UV, chemical, and stain resistant. You can rest assured that as well as looking great, your worktops will be easy to maintain and replenish and won’t have any unsightly seams or joins on show.
Customers are currently going wild for natural stone designs in their kitchens, in line with current aesthetic trends, and Mistral worktops perfectly encapsulate this design movement; no matter what your heart desires, there are limitless design options available.
What sizes are available in the Mistral acrylic worktops range?
Mistral acrylic worktops are available in 2m and 3.01m lengths, with all of them being 625mm wide. In terms of thickness, all of the worktops are 25mm thick. This makes Mistral worktops rather slimline, a fact that means they’re particularly stylish based on current trends. There is a demand for designs that use slimline worktops and slim but refined lines to create a subtly elegant appearance.
If 25mm doesn’t quite meet your slimline criteria, there are slimmer ranges available in our Apollo Granite, Apollo Quartz, Apollo Slab Tech, Silestone Quartz and Zodiaq quartz collections, all of which go as slim as 20mm. For even slimmer than this, there are seven stunning colours available in Apollo Granite 15mm: Spice Black, Tan Brown, Sa Bon Accord, Nero Absoluto, Blue Pearl, Emerald Pearl and Star Galaxy. You can’t go far wrong with any of the choices listed–if you go slimline you’ll be fashionable, but just how slimline comes down to personal taste.
What accessories can you get with your Mistral acrylic worktop?
Hopefully by now you’re confident with size and aesthetic choices for your worktops. Next you need to consider what accessories will really tie your kitchen together. There are a few to choose from in the Mistral acrylic range, including upstands, splashbacks and breakfast bars. All of these will bring a certain uniqueness to your design, and all can be
perfectly matched to your choice of worktop to ensure consistency across your design. A popular stylistic choice currently is to have one design or grain continue up from the worktops to a splashback.
One hot favourite with our customers is breakfast bars. This addition can transform a kitchen from a place where food is prepared into the social hub of the family home. With a breakfast bar you can sit and relax and have a coffee or a snack whilst having a chat with whoever else is drawn to the ambience of your kitchen. The kitchen can be a multifunctional room where people congregate and memories are made.
