Leading German kitchen manufacturer, SieMatic, has expanded its portfolio of finishes to include more veneer options to assist with the designing of open plan living and kitchen spaces.

In open plan homes, designers need to find decorative elements which can create a flow between the different areas.  Kitchen cabinets with a beautiful veneer finish can echo the appearance of living room furniture, and so can be used to create a seamless transition between the kitchen and living spaces. SieMatic has now increased its range of veneers to give designers more options for integrating living and kitchen areas.

Available in a variety of finishes including a stone beech, four walnut and six oak and two pine finishes.
