With kitchen design trends constantly changing and you, the end user, rightly demanding style and quality, it is important for kitchen manufacturers to keep on top of this by bringing new products to the market.

Thats why Kitchen Stori, the Northern Ireland based kitchen brand have recently?launched a fabulous new range of contemporary and classical kitchens giving customers great choice when it comes to picking a kitchen.??The Madison Painted is a classic kitchen design that exudes an elite bespoke feel without breaking the bank, while the Tavola, Ultra and Clonmel offer a more modern design that can have clean cut symmetry or curves, ensuring?they suit?all individual tastes.

The Madison is comes with a choice of 17 paint colours, with so many opportunities to mix and match paint colours it has never been easier to reflect individual style and taste.? Clonmel Oak, a chunky shaker style kitchen, can be accessorised to create both a modern and traditional look and is available in six paints and stains in earthy shades, extracted from Nature?s own colour palette ? ranging from the pale mussel paint to a dark wenge stain.? The Tavola, a slab style kitchen with horizontal grain, is also available in these finishes with the Ultra High Gloss being available in?varios painted and wood grain finishes.

Before you buy a kitchen!

Monday, November 9th, 2009

Buying a new kitchen can often be a confusing task.  What style will I go for?  What colour or wood finish do I like?  Where will I buy it?  It is often the most expensive purchase you will make for your home so it’s important to get it right.  Here are a few tips:

  • Ask yourself; What do I like and dislike about my current kitchen?  For example, if you have a low level oven built in under the counter, but recently your back has been acting up, then it makes sense to build a new one in at eye-level. The less strain the better. Does your dream kitchen contain kitchen wall panels that really bring out the beauty of the area? What do you like or dislike about your kitchen?
  • Make sure you have adequate worktop space around the cooking area.  It’s vitally important to be able to take something out of the oven or off the hob and place it down straight away.  If you have to walk with it there’s a danger you will bump in to someone or something, leaving you with a casserole on the ground that only the dog will eat or one of your nearest and dearest screaming with burns.
  • Make use of all the wonderful internal storage solutions.  Pull out wireworks, drawer fittings and proper waste management can make life a whole lot easier.
  • If you plan on putting an island or table in the kitchen, make sure you have plenty of room to walk around it.  900mm is the minimum space to leave but I recommend 1200mm.  You need two people to be able to walk past each other without a fight breaking out!
  • If you are planning an extension or building works, it’s a good idea to design the kitchen before you start.  That way you can plan the extension and window and door positionings around the kitchen and not the other way around.  In the past i’ve seen people close to tears when they realise an island won’t fit in or they don’t have enough space for the fabulous overmantle they planned around their range.

Preperation is the key to a successful project.  Make use of our planning checklists in the download section and research all the wonderful products on the market.  You can also find suppliers for everything you need for your new kitchen or bedroom at kitchenindex.ie/supplier-directory
