When it comes to home design, Graham knows exactly what he’s talking about - so here’s his Top 10 Kitchen Tips:
Handleless kitchens are all the rage, but be careful as they will show all the fingerprints unless you fit an ‘electric servo’ so you can open the drawers by using your knee or elbow! If you do decide to go with handles, then maybe an ‘integral’ handle is a good compromise -Sleek design but extremely practical.
It’s easy to keep clean and it looks great! At Raycross Interiors we have a plethora of colours available as well as various patterns and textures. Toughened glass has overtaken all materials as the must-have cladding for walls in the kitchen.
Make your life easy by having a fully opening Le Mans Carousel in the corner base unit – you can get to your items at the back of the corner unit with ease.
Stainless Steel kickboards/plinths not only look good but are easy to keep clean. Working with experienced designers will ensure that those ‘little’ things you don’t necessarily think about, aren’t forgotten.
Younger family members not quite so good at clearing up after themselves…? Wood effect porcelain floor tiles give a ‘natural’ feel to any kitchen and are ZERO maintenance to upkeep.
See how your culinary habits will change when cooking by steam for healthier and more nutritious meals for you and your family! Forget mountains of pans to wash-up, all your vegetables can be cooked in one tray to perfection keeping all their nutrients – Wave goodbye to pans of sticky rice and say hello to a bed of perfectly steamed rice….
An essential part of any new kitchen with hot water on tap whilst saving wasted water, wasted time and most importantly saving you money.
Induction Hobs are the answer… Their sleek, flat surface means you can use them as an extra worktop space when they’re not on and they’re also super easy to clean.
It’s always the bin that gets forgotten but when you’ve got your new kitchen and it looks great – where is the bin going to go? We have great ideas on hidden bins for general waste, recycling and food waste – who wants to spoil a stunning new kitchen with an unsightly bin…!!
Placement of power sockets is key… We work with our client to see how they work in a kitchen meaning they have power where they need it. Whether that be for children working at an Island/breakfast bar or handy sockets for Food Blenders and Processors.
When you start the research process for choosing the company who will be able to achieve your dream kitchen, write a list of questions to ask that will help you work out if this is the company that is going to provide you with everything you need from product to service, design to installation.
