EADT Suffolk - - PROMOTION -

Look­ing for some food for thought whilst plan­ning your dream kitchen? From quartz work­tops and painted wooden cab­i­netry to im­pos­ing fridge freez­ers and in­stant ac­cess to boil­ing wa­ter, here are some of the hot trends that are cur­rently turn­ing heads in the kitchen world.

Hot taps - And by hot we mean boil­ing, with in­stant ac­cess to 100°C wa­ter. A hot tap has be­come a must have fea­ture in all mod­ern kitchens, thanks to ad­vances in en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and wa­ter sav­ing fea­tures. Quooker are the lead­ing brand in high-end hot taps.

In­duc­tion hobs - The abil­ity to heat swiftly and wipe clean eas­ily means we’re see­ing a pref­er­ence for in­duc­tion hobs over gas at the mo­ment. The de­sire for gas hobs hasn’t been en­tirely ex­tin­guished, of course, and gas-on-glass hobs are a great op­tion for those want­ing to go gas and still main­tain an eas­ily cleaned unit.

Kitchen blues - Blue is such a ver­sa­tile colour, par­tic­u­larly the darker shades that are mak­ing their way into kitchens in a big way this year. The blue dis­play in our Martle­sham show­room has seen a lot of in­ter­est re­cently.

Quartz is queen of the work­tops - It feels solid like gran­ite, is just as durable, yet has a more con­sis­tent colour. Not to men­tion Quartz’ re­sis­tance to bac­te­ria and abil­ity to last the years with min­i­mal up­keep. It’s a life­long op­tion that’s caught the mo­ment. Light colours and faux mar­ble ef­fects are mak­ing a big im­pact this year. Painted wood cab­i­netry - It’s rus­tic yet mod­ern and suits a coun­try kitchen with stone floor­ing just as much as a mod­ern, light and open kitchen. Painted wood cab­i­netry is scratch re­sis­tant too, which means your dream kitchen will still be the stuff of dreams in five or ten years’ time.

Cool re­frig­er­a­tion - And by cool we mean freez­ing. And there’s no bet­ter place to keep your chicken nuggets frozen in style than the Fisher & Paykel RS90a1. This stain­less steel french door fit­ted mono­lith is a cool ad­di­tion to any mod­ern kitchen. It’s also eas­ily in­te­grated to look like a pantry cup­board, blend­ing seam­lessly into your more clas­si­cally de­signed dream kitchen.
