Induction cooking

Induction cookers use electric currents to directly heat pots and pans through magnetic induction. Induction cookers will heat your cookware almost instantly so it’s guaranteed faster meal prep – something we can all agree on. And with a seamless integrated design, they’re extremely easy to clean so that you can keep your kitchen looking pristine.

Quartz worktops

If you’re looking for a more practical worktop, then quartz is the perfect choice. Requiring less upkeep than granite and marble, quartz saves you all the time and hassle while still looking pristine. Another huge benefit is that quartz goes with just about any kitchen design, including both light and dark colours as well as an array of designs due to the unique manufacturing process. So it truly is a timeless addition to your home.

Integrated appliances

Tuck away clunky kitchen appliances with clever built-in storage and panelling. It’ll also give you more opportunity to add colour and style to your kitchen. It’s a great way to get creative with some innovative storage ideas – hide away your dishwasher within an unsuspecting cupboard or place your fridge within a large, panelled storage unit.

Large sinks

When it comes to your kitchen sink, think about functionality over anything else. A big farmhouse style sink has become a popular option over the years and is able to accommodate much more than a standard size kitchen sink. If you have a big family, or you like to host the odd dinner party here and there, then a larger, more practical sink is perfect for throwing all your dirty dishes and utensils in while you tackle wiping down surfaces.
