La Cornue Grand Maman Cooker – Spectacular Kitchen Range

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

I came across this kitchen range cooker from La Cornue and immediately thought “what a fabulous colour”  The cooker in question is the La Cornue Grand Maman 90 in this striking blue, part of the Cornuchef range from the French maker.

The Grand Maman comes with a spectacular 84 litre vaulted oven in gas or electric and a stainless steel hob equipped with five 3.5 kw burners. The burners are available either in a combination of gas and electric, or all electric.

With its contemporary, sober and distinctive appearance, and its large snail oven handle, the Cornuchef will easily adapt to all styles of kitchen and form a perpetually fashionable centrepiece. La Cornue offers a choice of 24 colours for your Cornuchef and its extractor hood, as always to be complemented by stainless steel or solid brass.

When I saw this beautiful blue colour, I immediately thought how fabulous it would look with an off-white or cream painted kitchen.

I think both colours would complement each other perfectly while keeping the range cooker as the focal point in the room. Imagine all the WOWs when your friends came to see your newly installed kitchen with a La Cornue as the centrepiece.

More information on LaCornue cookers and the Grand Maman can be found at www.lacornue.com

Funky Hoods – Kitchen Cooker Hoods With Flair

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

Falmec Pharoe Cooker Hood

Your choice of cooker hood can sometimes make a big difference when it comes to adding that “WOW Factor” to your kitchen.

Gone are the days when your only choice is a basic stainless steel hood that offers little in the way of design or style.

Once purely a functional necessity in the kitchen, cooker hoods have now become much more about style and flair.

The choice you now have is much broader, with appliance manufacturers and kitchen designers realising that a cooker hood can now be the focal point in kitchen design.

We’ve put together this showcase of funky cooker hoods that we love at Kitchenindex.ie and think you might like for your new kitchen. They would certainly add some style and could be that “something different” that you’ve been looking for.

You will also find links at the bottom of the page that will take you to the websites of the brands that we have featured.

Custom Made Ivory Painted TV Unit Covers Both Style & Function

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

With Plasma & LCD TV’s practically the norm in Irish homes these days, you may wonder what the best option for a TV stand is.  Your options are usually either to sit the TV on the traditional TV stand, or to hand it on the wall.

Well this custom made TV stand by Diamond Kitchens in Dublin is another option that allows you to sit the TV on top or hang it on the wall above.


The beauty of this TV stand is that it fills the wall very well, adds some stylish custom furniture to the room and helps hide away the Sky box & dvd player. Diamond Kitchens carried out this work for a homeowner in Glasnevin, Dublin 9, and it features Inframe Ivory Painted units with a solid walnut worktop.  The lattice doors in the centre allow for remote control access to the Sky box and dvd player while also adding an interesting feature.  With drawers on each side the TV stand also gives plenty of storage for things like dvds and magazines.

Kitchen Plans - Independent Kitchen Design Service

Kitchen Plans, a new and unique new service offering an independent kitchen design service has joined Kitchenindex.ie.

We are delighted to welcome them on board and really look forward to showcasing Pat’s work here on our website and blog. Pat set up Kitchen Plans when he saw a real need to work closely on kitchen design and planning with people building a new home, adding an extension or thinking of a kitchen re-fit in their current home.

As Pat says, if you are planning a new build or extension to your home, the best time to design the kitchen is before work starts on the build. Designing the kitchen before the build starts allows for proper planning of services so that when the builder start, you have a proper plan in place for electrical and plumbing points in the kitchen. The plumbing will be done by pipe relining Sydney. Not only that. Door and window positionings can also be considered at this point so if either needs to be moved to suit the kitchen design, this is the ideal time to do it.

Kitchen Plans spend time with their customers to ensure the kitchen design is perfect for their needs and budget. Each client is presented with a detailed floor plan, 3D colour perspectives and these can then be used when getting quotes from kitchen suppliers. Designs can be produced to suit any kitchen style or brand. If a client has a preference for brands like IKEA, Second Nature, Kitchen Stori, Springhill or a Bespoke Design, Pat will take this into consideration when working on the design.

Kitchen Plans are based in Cork but provide their kitchen design service throughout Ireland.

Pat at Kitchen Plans can be contacted on 021 4888813 or 087 2653896. You can also visit their website for details on service and price at www.kitchenplans.ie.
