Creating a kitchen that hits the spot when it comes to green credentials is something every homeowner should consider. Not only does it help the environment, it also saves on household bills, and negates the need to replace utensils or far more expensive appliances as frequently.
The kitchen has undergone a huge transformation over the decades. Instead of simply being the place to prepare meals, it’s become an integral meeting point of the modern household. A space for the family to come together and a spot to entertain friends. To adapt to this new way of living, the design of contemporary kitchens is open plan, quite often flowing from the living areas of the home in one sweep.
Now it might sound a little strange, but every kitchen has a personality. Just mull this over for a moment. Your very own kitchen, inherited or installed yourself, will reflect the taste and style of the person responsible, and the decade it hails from. Ideally, it should also suit the home it belongs to.
Upgrading your kitchen is very much like embarking on an adventure. The design process itself should be an exciting prospect. And that’s before you get into actualising your plan and installing it.
We’re all for beautiful interior design, but we’re a practical lot too. And when it comes to innovative kitchen must-haves, it doesn’t get more gorgeously useful than a butler’s pantry.
So you’ve just signed off the design for your new kitchen, or perhaps a revamped dressing room. You have all the colours and materials nailed down. And you can see where each of your personal knickknacks will fit. But have you thought of everything?
As bespoke, high quality kitchen designers, we can admit there are plenty of luxurious kitchens out there. But, as the most used room of the modern day home, kitchens in themselves, are not a luxury.
Let’s face it, we don’t get many, so when a sunny day comes along, our thoughts invariably turn to the captivating charm of outdoor cooking and dining. There is a heady sentimentality to thoughts of delicious cooking smells mixed with fresh flowers on warm, dusky evenings.
The clocks went forward weeks ago, spring has just about sprung and sunlight streams through the windows for longer and longer each day (or so we like to hope).
Throughout the ages, us Brits have remained steadfastly loyal to our nice cup of tea and our national devotion to it will never fade. However, it’s undeniable that we have also become a nation of coffee drinkers.
