liquid metal kitchen

Liquid Metal Kitchen from Metalier

A liquid metal kitchen is good-looking and practical.

The kitchen is an ideal place to use Metalier liquid metal and some of Metalier’s most spectacular work has been completed in kitchens.  The bar at Chapman Tripp lawyers’ common room and bar is an example of a liquid metal kitchen which was completed in a specialized silver metal.

The liquid metal kitchen at The French Café was finished in Metalier Nickel Silver.  The kitchen bar at The Sugar Club in Sky City is in aluminium.  Metalier recently completed a kitchen for designer Mal Corboy in antiqued brass.

A Liquid Metal kitchen by Metalier can be minimalist or it can be lavish, ornate and even outlandish.  The Chapman Tripp kitchen is raw and minimalist – concrete and metal.  It can be an ornate feature such as the aluminium bar at The Sugar Club which stands out, not only because of its faceted face but also because it is surrounded by a sea of brass.

As well as looking good, Metalier liquid metal finishes are practical and hard-wearing when protected by Metalier’s Nano Clear Coat.  This clear coat protects the metal from tarnishing and spills are easily wiped away and the surface kept clean.

The Chapman Tripp kitchen also shows how fine the cabinetry detail can be.  The edges of the cupboard doors and drawers are all coated with Metalier liquid metal.  You simply could not achieve such a fine look with sheet metal – it would be too heavy and clunky.

Another important aspect of a Metalier liquid metal kitchen is that it will be unique.  Not only is there an almost unlimited number of finishes that can be achieved, Metalier is hand crafted.  This means that every kitchen will be different.  Most of us want to be different and a handcrafted finish allows people to express their individuality.

Metalier Copper Liquid Metal in the UK

Copper is “the” colour of the moment in the UK

A spectacular bar in Heswall, Merseyside has been completed using Metalier’s Copper Liquid Metal.  We are delighted to showcase our UK distributors again - Craig and Alison McDonald of Granlyn, West Bromwich, Metalier UK do Metalier proud.  We notice too that not only is copper liquid metal popular but angled bars seem to be as well.  Think of the aluminium Metalier Bar in The Sugar Club and the brass Metalier Bar in The Grand Leicester Hotel.

Metalier Copper Liquid Metal Finish is not paint

There are many brands and varieties of copper paint on the market.  For some applications paint is all that is required but for longevity, durability and authenticity you cannot go past Metalier’s real copper liquid metal.

Copper paints will usually contain a few metal flakes or even finely ground metal powder.  The copper won’t be the major ingredient in the paint – that will be acrylic or enamel.  So a copper paint will perform similarly to a paint.  Most paints last up to 10 years.  Metalier will last 25-30 years even outdoors.  In fact it will probably last must longer.

Metalier copper liquid metal finish (and our other metals too) are applied in ratios of metal to binder in weight from 75 to 80%.  As part of the Metalier process most of the binder is sanded away leaving a finish when complete of 95% metal.  This means that it is strong and durable and very real.

Metalier Copper Liquid Metal Finish can also be textured

Copper liquid metal can be made less liquid by the addition of Metalier’s proprietary thickener.  Patterns and textures can be created in the metal itself while it is still wet and malleable.  Not something you can achieve with paint.  You can also create lace effects – in fact what you can do with copper liquid metal is endless. And we love its warm rosy texture – we can understand why it’s so trendy at present.

Brass Liquid Metal in the UK

Brass Liquid Metal in a Heritage Hotel

Metalier’s Brass Liquid Metal features in a bar in a stunning fit-out by House & Hotel Interiors of The Leicester Grand Hotel.  The hotel, which has a Grade II listing, has been transformed by designers Helen Hopper and Emma Kewley from a franchise Hotel into a “unique and luxurious destination full of personality”.

Metalier brass liquid metal finish – traditional yet contemporary

The designers wanted to use traditional finishes such as polished brass and to honour the history and heritage of the building.  Metalier’s brass liquid metal enabled the introduction of traditional finishes in a modern way.  The brass liquid metal was applied to a polygonal bar front which is finished with a marble top.  The angles on the front of the bar are enhanced with shadows and light on the surface.  The design is so inviting that it’s not difficult to imagine sitting at the bar and choosing from the wonderful array of tempting drinks.

Brass liquid metal finish fitted the budget

The designers say that the success of the project was due to contract UK suppliers, such as Metalier.  It was their ability to provide solutions that made the design work.  Emma Kewley sums it up this way: “working with suppliers like Metalier who can produce innovative surface finishes and apply them to bespoke joinery enables us to achieve a boutique feel to the hotel design, but all the time keeping within the budget”.

We look forward to working more with House and Hotel whose mission is to bring the personal touch to hotels and the bespoke to private houses, without the luxury price tag.

Brass Hardware | Metalier Coatings

Brass Hardware has come of age | Metalier Liquid Metal

Brass Hardware is now modern and sophisticated, like the shelves at The Sugar Club above.  It’s quite unlike the 1980s look and feel.  Brass took a bit of a knock when aluminium hardware flooded the market with cheaper imports from China.  Aluminium also suited the minimalist age.  While minimalism still has its devotees, including us, there are times when a little more is required.  And if we are really honest, we’re less minimalist than we used to be.

Metalier Liquid Metal transforms aluminium hardware into copper or brass

While there is always a time and place for traditional brass hardware made of the solid metal, Metalier offers a very cost-effective solution to having your hardware cake and eating it too.  Both brass and copper, and also our mountain gold have been used in white kitchens to great effect.  These warm colours warm up the kitchen.  They look stunning, too, against black.

Metalier can change your cost-effective aluminium fittings into the metal of your dreams.  You can co-ordinate the accessories throughout your home or office or retail outlet.  Just think – taps, door handles, hinges, shelves, cupboard handles, push plates, kick plates and light switches can all be customized and unique to you.  It’s great to have alternatives that don’t break the bank.

And just think of the metal options you have with Metalier – the “obvious” ones like brass, bronze, copper and mountain gold and the less obvious ones such as rose gold, blush aluminium, smoky bronze and gunmetal bronze.  We’re also about to launch another lot of metals too – zinc, nickel silver, black copper, pewter and chocolate bronze.

If you would like to talk to us more about getting your hardware coated or to be kept informed about our new metal releases, contact us here or fill out the contact form below.  We love hearing from you.
