Designing a Kitchen: Q&A

WHAT TYPE OF COUNTERTOPS/CABINETRY DO YOU SPECIALISE IN? 

As a kitchen company we specialise in bespoke kitchen design. Our preferred stone specialists are companies such as Caesarstone and Neolith.

WHAT ARE THE LATEST TRENDS AND INNOVATIONS IN KITCHEN COUNTERTOPS AND CABINETRY? 

Designing a kitchen is an exciting process, not only do you want a beautiful looking kitchen with clean lines and a sleek finish, but picking the right options for your kitchen will give you a timeless space that you will enjoy being in for as long as you have to. If you’re looking for to have a do over in your kitchen, then here’s a few tips from us.

On the 2018 style forecast for kitchens, thinner worktops are the way to go. The thinner your worktop the better. Instead of the standard 20mm worktop, the latest trend is thinner sleeker worktops going down to 13mm.

Another trend we’re looking at and loving is the Caesarstone marble effect. This range offers to highlight the look of natural stone as well as enhance the kitchen space. What’s great about this new offering is that it has the same old durability and ease of maintenance that Caesarstone quartz surfaces are renowned for.

Natural Stone is also trending and making a strong impact in interiors. Recent trends in kitchen design are reflecting a shift toward natural materials. Natural Stone offers variation in colour and texture, which allows one a few options to look at.

Satin finishes are also the new preference over the old favourite high gloss, with wood also making a comeback in base units.

WHAT DOES EVERY HOME OWNER NEED TO KNOW BEFORE SELECTING A COUNTERTOP FOR THEIR KITCHEN?

There’s a few things to consider when selecting your new kitchen, such as Guarantee terms. Caesarstone offers a lifetime guarantee as well as being very durable, stain and heat resistant and as a man-made stone its non-porous, making it a great option for any kitchen countertop selection.

WHEN IT COMES TO CABINETRY, DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVISE/TIPS FOR HOME OWNERS REVAMPING THEIR KITCHEN?

Our advice when revamping is making sure you use products which have a good reputation and long guarantees.

IN TERMS OF MAINTENANCE/UP-KEEP, ARE THERE ANY CONSIDERATIONS THAT SHOULD BE KEPT IN MIND WHEN UPDATING YOUR CABINETRY AND/OR COUNTERTOPS?

Firstly, choice of material, stone and hardware are important as these will have an effect on how long the products will last in your kitchen and how much maintenance work will have to be done.

Brands such as Caesarstone and Blum have a lifetime guarantee on their products, meaning less maintenance is required and should last for a lifetime if handled accordingly.

Natural stone requires sealing every six months which is an easy application.
