Handless Kitchens

Super modern kitchens are on high demand this year and us kitchen designers want to give you what you want! There are 4 different styles of handless doors which can help you achieve the modern look. The Olympia door being the most recent with the handle cut centrally into the top of every door, which gives a new twist to the more traditional full length J section handles which are still very popular.

Traditional Shaker Style Doors

Shaker style doors have been around for centuries and still providing beautiful traditional kitchens world wide. With the modern revamp they have had since the 18th century we now see smooth doors in earthy colours, not just woods!

Max Storage

Lift up systems make your life easier with easy access to all your condiments and crockery and is a stylish way to modernise the overall look of your kitchen. Blum supply 6 different styles of lift up systems, Bi-folding being the most popular.

The most important part of kitchen storage is the drawer. Drawers allow your cabinet contents to come out to you rather than you having to scramble in cupboards to find what your looking for. As part of the new modern look you can now have drawers fully fitted in your kitchen with not a cupboard in sight.

Island units

Love entertaining? Well an island unit is perfect for creating a homely space for your guests to sit with you while you cook. But not all island units have to be the same. You can create amazing Islands with curves, different levels and textures, even floating!
