Solid Oak Kitchen Cabinets in Hardwick White: January’s Colour of the Month

Posted by admin on January 21, 2015 at 4:33 pm. Filed under: Products
January’s Colour of the Month

January is firmly in full swing, and having posted an entire year of colours from Farrow & Ball throughout 2014, we’re now publishing the final ‘Colour of the Month’ from our standard range.

This particular shade, Hardwick White, comes from the ‘Accents’ range: a collection of prominent colours that contrast kindly with solid oak kitchen cabinets – bright enough to stand out alone, as well as working alongside many lighter colours.

Hardwick White is not – as the name might suggest – a shade of white; in fact it’s more of a light grey, with attractive green hues. It takes its name from the limewash used to paint the interior of Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire.

Depending how much natural light your kitchen gets, Hardwick White can be a rather changeable colour, shifting between light shades of green, blue, brown and grey. In cold winter light, blue and grey accents will be exposed, whilst in warmer evening and summer light from the south, it shifts towards greens and browns.

In dark and smaller rooms, Hardwick White can look particularly intensive, and becomes quite dusky, particularly when plenty of layers are applied, and so is often best combined with a bright white such as Farrow & Ball’s All White. Equally, it holds its own alongside stronger colours such as Red Earth or Terre D’Egypte.

If you would like an easy way of seeing how Hardwick White will appear in your kitchen, then why not order one of our pre-painted kitchen door samples? These miniature versions of our oak cabinet frontals measure 355mm x 296mm and are available in any of Farrow & Ball’s shades for just £20 including delivery. To make them even more enticing, if you go on to place an order for your wooden kitchen components with us, the cost will be refunded – even more reason to try out a myriad of colours within your home!

Wirework for Solid Wood Kitchens

Whilst you may be well aware of the beautiful solid oak cabinets and hardwood worktops that make up one of our solid wood kitchens, there are plenty of hidden details that you may not notice at first glance.

Chief amongst these details is an important feature that can really set your kitchen apart and make it truly usable (whilst also looking good): our selection of wirework for cabinets.

Whatever type of cabinet you would like to kit out with our wirework, we have a solution to fit.

From simple 3-Tier Spice Rack storage that easily screws onto a cabinet door, to more complex solutions such as our Magic Basket Corner Solution (as shown in the photo above), or our Pull & Swing Pantry wirework that is ideal for full-height cabinets, our selection of wirework is designed to make storage in your kitchen more effective, easier to access and also more hygienic.

Many of our wirework options are made in the United Kingdom, and come in a variety of widths to suit our full range of cabinetry up to 1200mm wide. All are supplied with full assembly instructions and can easily be installed without any specialist knowledge or tools.

No matter your requirements, we highly recommend that you consider some of our innovative wirework – it will make your cabinet storage as brilliant on the inside as it appears from the outside.

Looking to find out more about our wirework? Why not visit one of our kitchen showrooms? Each showroom has many of the wirework products we offer on display in a variety of kitchen settings, and can be fully demonstrated by our knowledgeable showroom managers.

 

January’s Kitchen Gadget of the Month: Ideal for Oak Kitchens!

Posted by admin on January 7, 2015 at 4:29 pm. Filed under: Products
January’s Kitchen Gadget of the Month

At this time of year, many new gadgets are being announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, with manufacturers hoping to wow people for the next 12 months.

In the last year, one kitchen gadget that has had a great revival in popularity is the slow cooker. The great thing about them is that they can be filled up in the morning with the timer set, so that when you arrive home from work there’s a lovely hot meal waiting for you. However, they’re not just for cooking stews or casseroles anymore.

A modern slow cooker such as Tefal’s RK302E15 8-in-1 Multi Cooker is capable of cooking rice, porridge, steaming, and even cooking deserts.

If your meal is ready before you return home, Tefal’s Multi Cooker will also automatically keep your food warmed until you are ready to serve it. You can tell it to have your meal ready in anything from 2 to 15 hours, with 1 hour incremental adjustment.

On the front there’s a set of controls which make setting up the Multi Cooker really straightforward – even without reading the manual in full. You can easily select from three different rice cooking options, slow cooking, steaming, porridge or a desert setting, and then easily adjust the cooking time using the buttons and easy-to-read display.

As well as this wide range of features, the Tefal Multi Cooker looks pretty good in oak kitchens too. The stainless steel finish and matt plastic top are stylish yet functional and the non-stick slow cooker insert can be easily removed for cleaning.

For £49.99, this versatile cooker replaces a multitude of other kitchen gadgets, meaning you won’t need to use a standalone rice cooker or a variety of pans in order to create a fantastic meal.

Have you got your own slow cooker? Let us know how you make use of it over on one of our social media pages. We’re on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Google+. As ever, if you have found a gadget that you think we should feature on our next ‘Gadget of the Month’ post, then do get in touch – we’d love to hear from you!
