The heart of the home
The kitchen is more than just cupboards and worktops. It’s the place where friends and family gather, while quality appliances help make the memories
Planning a kitchen doesn’t have to be a minefield. Whether installing or replacing appliances, arm yourself with the right information and it’s very easy to get right.
As the hub of any home, your kitchen provides the backdrop to your life, the place where family memories are made. So whether you’re planning to install a new cooking space or replace existing appliances, it’s key to make sure you do your research, check your measurements, decide on what you want and where you want it to go, then work with a trusted supplier who knows exactly what you need from the journey.
Remember, planning a kitchen isn’t just about choosing your cupboards and worktops. Equally important is the kitchen kit you use to prepare the party snacks, chill the wine, cook the Sunday roast, bake the birthday cakes... Of course, it has to look chic – ideally built-in to blend with the rest of your units – but it also must be of superior quality you can rely on. So rather than focusing solely on units, why not build your dream kitchen around the oven that can bake, roast, grill and then clean itself? Plan in an über-stylish fridge, which not only has an industrial-luxe look, but also holds 20 sorbets. And consider maximising workspace so you can include a stand mixer that looks great on your work surface and can whip up a meringue in two minutes flat. And don’t forget about a dishwasher that takes care of (most of) the clearing up.
