Cormac Murray Kitchen Specialist, Meath – Kitchen With Mix of Walnut and Cream

Monday, July 12th, 2010

Cormac Murray, a kitchen specialist based in Meath, has sent us in photographs and a video?of a fabulous kitchen he has just completed for a client in Malahide, Co. Dublin.

With this being a large kitchen come diner, Cormacs task was to create a kitchen that filled the room yet had interesting features and a large island to fill the floor space.? Using solid walnut and cream painted units, a bespoke in-frame kitchen was designed and manufactured and I think you will all agree that the end result is fabulous.

Below you can see a very simple canopy above the hob.? To make it a feature in the room, it is simply stepped up and out from the rest of the cabinets.

Cormac Murray Kitchens creates stunning walnut and cream kitchen

The island unit really is the focal point of the kitchen.? Because the room is big, the island needed to fill the floor space while at the same time being interesting.? Adding curved doors and a raised breakfast bar creates style and function.

Tiling Your Kitchen Floor

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

When having a new kitchen fitted, or indeed when you just want to revamp your kitchen with some new floor tiles, there is often some confusion about when the floor should be tiled and if you need to tile underneath the kitchen units.

I get asked these questions and more all the time so I have put together a guide to tiling your kitchen floor that will hopefully answer any questions you have.

We have covered such questions as whether to tile the kitchen floor before or after the new kitchen has been fitted, how to go about tiling an existing kitchen, what to do when you have an island unit and working around floor standing kitchen appliances.
