Our Tips To Help With Your Kitchen Plan

The Working Triangle.

The position of your hob, fridge and sink 'The Triangle', often has a surface area in between; whether that is an island or standard units. This always helps with the practicality of using your kitchen. You also might consider some tall units near the fridge. This will help to keep food items in one location.

Many elements of your kitchen design can implement a particular style to your kitchen. A clean kitchen design with good lines will often reflect a modern style. This can also be enhanced by the Profile Edge chosen on your surface. A Sharknose edge, for instance, is a very popular option to compliment and offer more practicality with a handleless kitchen. See the profile Edges here.

Wall Paint can often be one of the most cost effective and dramatic ways to refresh your kitchen space.

Small Kitchen?

Do You have a small kitchen? Wondering how you can make the most out of your space?

There are many elements to consider when planning your space. Think about 'lines'. Is it important to look up and extend the room into a tall ceiling? Would you benefit from horizontal paneling or doors to extend the length of the room?

Wall units, door fronts, shelves and decoration can help draw the eye to open up your small space.

Think about your unit colour and worktop choice. With a light colour Granite or Quartz on your surface you can help bounce light around the room, increasing it's vibrance and opening up the space. With lighter worktops you could even chose a darker door to offer a contrast in the kitchen without losing any reflective light.

Take a look at this article from Houzz. They have some brilliant ideas.

Tips To Save You Money

 

Whether you are dealing with a large project in your house or even just changing door fronts and work tops, money management is almost everyones key agenda. 

Remember that managing projects yourself can help save some costs. This of course needs consideration when looking at what needs to be completed and your skills to manage the project. If you are unable to manage your project correctly, in some cases you could encounter more costs.

Decoration is a task that most people could take to. Painting the area yourself could help save the cost of a third party. Why not get the kids involved or pull in the family for a favour. This can also help speed things up.

When looking at purchasing your worktops, you are likely to be coming to the end of your project. Don't lose out on those dream Granite or Quartz surfaces and take advantage of payment options. With availability to spread costs over a period of time you can now afford the finishing touch to transform your kitchen. We have many options that can help you manage your payments; from low interest rates to completely interest FREE!

Marble Is Modern

 

Marble is a material that is no longer desired in a kitchen. It will scratch. It will stain. It is not user-friendly for any family kitchen in 2017.

But we have some products you will love!

With the current demand to see 'Marble' back in kitchens, many Quartz manurfacturers have designed 'Marble' looking materials with the benefit of Quartz.

Quartz is a material that is Non-Porous and Stain Resistant. A good choice for a kitchen surface! With many designs on the market, some great and some poor, you have the ability to bring back the trend and settle it into your family home.

As a company, we have worked hard to distinguish which of these options would be the best for our customers. We have a selection of materials that not only look fantastic but can also be very competitive in costs.
