Winter Inspiration

Welcome to our Inspiration page. This is a page to get a feel for what our hand-crafted sinks can do for you – providing the overall notion of what we want to bring to your living area.

Here are the days filled with hot chocolates, blankets and warm fires. As we try and keep cosy over these next couple of months, we have brought you a new realm of inspiration, that we cannot wait to share with you.

Winter is a season for new beginnings and creativity to shine, whether you’re wrapped in a blanket on your couch or out playing in the snow, there’s wintry inspiration all around us.

There is no better sight than pulling open the curtains on a blissful winter morning to be greeted by a blanket of untouched snow comforting the ground, dimly lit by the street lights. So, this season we have paired with everything white! From White Theme Design Ideas to fun-filled DIY Winter Decorations, dust off those Winter blues and allow us to excite you for the magical, festive months ahead.

Stylish Splashbacks

As the nights get darker, our palette gets lighter! The kitchen will be the heart of the home this festive period, and when it comes to crafting a timeless design, you can never go wrong with an all-white palette. From sleek cabinetry to glossy white tiles, we have all the inspiration you need to make white hues work for your own space.

Our Heritage sinks pair beautifully with stunning white themed kitchens, and the thing catching our eye the most this season are exquisitely patterned splashbacks. As with tiles, both laminate and glass, splashbacks can be used to make a style statement.

In the past, splashbacks were all about function, made to protect the walls behind worktops, hobs and sinks from staining. Nowadays, their ability to bring both aesthetic and practical value to a kitchen is crucial to a successful kitchen space.

Any simplistic, crisp white kitchen design has been elevated with the personality and character provided by the beautifully patterned splashback. Playful patterns will contrast with simple wooden cabinets. However, sticking to a neutral colour scheme will avoid overwhelming the space. Try a similar coloured marble/textured worktop and the colours within the lustrous splashback will match seamlessly to give an added depth of tone and detail.

Winter Sky

There is no better sight than pulling open the curtains on a blissful winter morning to be greeted a blanket of untouched snow comforting the ground, dimly lit by the street lights.

So, this season we have paired with our classic white glaze. Here are the days of snow, of ice, of thick hats and jackets as we see frost develop on our windows and snow creating a magical layer over Lancashire and we couldn’t think of a better way to match this traditional colour!

Calder White

Our classic white sinks are a masterpiece of traditional manufacturing, carrying hundreds of years of craftsmanship and long-established techniques.

White kitchen sinks are timeless. Their aesthetics are classic; there is no denying that. They suit many different style kitchens, from farmhouse to traditional to even modern in some cases. Also, as we know, white goes with everything! No matter the colour of the cabinets or countertop, you know white will go well with it.

Each handcrafted sink in our traditional Heritage Collection is as practical as it is beautiful, and equally at home in traditional or contemporary kitchens.

DIY Decorations

The season of festivities! Warm-up cold, grey winter days with these easy ideas you can make yourself. You can create the cosy living room of your dreams or bring some colour into the kitchen while you’re cooking up hot soups and stews.

Use items that you wouldn’t normally use to decorate, like pine cones and chestnuts, to add a natural element to your room, bringing the outdoors in. Collect these into a clear, glass bowl and sit in the middle of the coffee table. This looks especially rustic in front of a roaring fire!

Make any living area feel brighter by adding touches of greenery on the table and shelves. Even when it’s white and snowy outside, it will feel much more alive indoors.

Set up a log cabin-inspired hot chocolate bar for something to look forward to after a long, frosty walk or a cosy night indoors.

Add some small, festive house plants with frosted edges around the house to add the beauty of Winter from the comfort of your own home; without having to venture out into the cold. Pair these with seasonal mugs such as printed winter-symbolic animals or even Christmassy mugs, if you’re ready to get into the spirit!

Light blue candlesticks play up the wintery look and are more unique than the classic white option, yet they still feel classic and pair nicely with other light blue accents.

Open Plan Parties

Open plan designs are perfect for our long-awaited parties, having the whole family gathered together playing games and drinking wine in a spacious open-plan kitchen area/dining space!

As well as being environmentally conscious and relying on fewer materials being needed for building, an open-plan design features space that promotes communication, interaction and shared moments.

Allowing light to flood into the area with big windows and glass patio doors provides realms of beautiful natural light – to boost energy, happiness and even helps to balance the body’s hormones. An open floor plan provides sunlight helping connect your indoor spaces with the outdoor ones. The lack of walls allows for light to travel into every crevis of the room, brightening up your home and your life.

This type of design also provides space for a larger amount of people to socialise at one time as there is no isolation between the divides separating the kitchen and the living room while preparing meals, aiding communal living and bringing family and friends together.

Adding a classic fire-clay sink is a perfect way to give any contemporary, open-plan space that traditional touch.
