The turkey’s done,
The presents have been won:
And now it’s time for kitchen-planning fun!
Sorry for the rhymes,
We’re nearly out of lines:
But if you want to visit us, there’s still time!

Please excuse the little ditty, but Christmas is now over, so we thought we’d better spread a new kind of cheer! Indeed, if you’re feeling a little blue and need something to perk up your spirits after the festive break, why not start picturing your kitchen makeover? A new year means a new start, after all!

If the mood does strike and you just can’t wait to get planning, you’ll be pleased to know that our sales lines and kitchen showrooms are ready and waiting for you. With locations including Gloucestershire, Derbyshire and Essex already open, and with two new showrooms set to open on the 4th January (in Cheshire and Surrey respectively), there are plenty of opportunities to see our solid oak kitchen cabinets in person and discuss your project with one of our friendly sales team.

Normal opening hours resume from Saturday 2nd January, but never fear if you wanted to visit before then: our showrooms are open each day this week except for New Year’s Day itself (please visit the individual oak kitchen showroom pages to view details of the opening hours at each location). Or, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us – we look forward to helping you!

December’s Gadget of the Month: Ideal for Oak Kitchens

Posted by admin on December 23, 2015 at 10:31 am. Filed under: General

Picture the scene – it’s Boxing Day morning, you are tired and possibly a little worse-for-wear after Christmas Day’s festivities. A craving for a spot of cooked breakfast overcomes you, but you simply cannot face the pile of washing up that awaits you after yesterday’s fallout.

Enter the stainless steel SMART Breakfast Master – billed as the easiest way to make a scrumptious cooked breakfast or brunch without needing to dirty even more pots and pans.

This incredible kitchen gadget can boil up to six eggs or poach three simultaneously, as well as offering an extra-wide 2-slot toaster and a special non-stick tray that is capable of grilling or lightly frying bacon, sausages or healthier items such as mushrooms or tomatoes.

The toaster has 7 browning settings for getting your toast just right, whilst a self-centring system with anti-jam functionality means your toast will never get stuck. Defrost, reheat and a cancel function are also included – just in case.

A number of accessories are also included to help you cook the perfect egg – whether you prefer a poached, fried or boiled egg.

With just a few simple pushes of a few buttons and a twiddle of a knob, you can whip up a delicious breakfast in oak kitchens in no time at all!

If the SMART Breakfast Maker is the perfect kitchen gadget to start you off in the morning, then pick one up for just £50.99 from Tesco.com.

 

Spotlight on Glass Splashbacks for Solid Oak Kitchens

Posted by admin on December 16, 2015 at 2:35 pm. Filed under: General

You are probably already familiar with our wide range of wood kitchen cabinets, wooden worktops and other components that make up our stunning solid oak kitchens, but did you know that we also sell a variety of accessories to help finish your kitchen in style?

Our glass kitchen splashbacks are one such accessory, and an elegant finishing touch that adds a portion of glossy colour to kitchens by protecting walls behind oven hobs and sinks.

Measuring 750mm tall and available in a variety of widths from 600mm up to 1200mm wide, our splashbacks can be purchased in black, white, red and cappuccino coloured glass. Each splashback is made from heat-resistant glass that is also scratchproof, and designed to be very hard-wearing.

Whether you are creating a contemporary or traditional theme, splashbacks are ideal for protecting walls in your kitchen, and are very easy to wipe clean.

If you are creating a high-end modern kitchen, you may also want to consider our stainless steel splashbacks, which are available in brushed steel or black finishes.

Further information about our splashbacks can be found in our information guide: ‘How to Choose and Install Splashbacks in Solid Wood Kitchens’.

Last Chance to Order Solid Oak Kitchen Cabinets for Christmas!

Well, it’s official: festive fever is now sweeping the nation, and most of us are in a frenzy of celebratory preparations.

As such, we thought it was time to remind you of those all-important cut off dates for ordering solid oak kitchen cabinets and other items with pre-Christmas delivery.

If you’re keen to install a gorgeous oak kitchen before your family descend for the festive season, then don’t forget that your cabinet order (including units, frontals and any painted accessories) needs to be placed by 12 noon on Friday 11th December at the latest. Wood worktops can be ordered up until 12 noon on Monday 21st December. Our last pre-Christmas delivery date is Tuesday 22nd December.

However, if you’re hoping to kick off Boxing Day with some kitchen planning, never fear: our own brand of ‘elves’ (or – as they like to be called – ‘sales team’) will be on hand either on the telephone or at our showrooms between 10am-2pm. We’re also open on the 29th, 30th and 31st December – please check our individual oak kitchen showrooms pages for the specific times for each location.

Whatever your preference may be during this festive season, we’re here to help: and we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 

Sample Doors for Solid Wood Kitchens in Any Farrow & Ball Colour

Posted by admin on December 2, 2015 at 4:14 pm. Filed under: General

Can’t decide which colour would suit your new kitchen? Perhaps you would like to see the quality of our solid oak kitchen doors up-close before placing your order? Whatever your reason, it pays to order some of our kitchen door samples before finalising any of your design decisions for solid wood kitchens.

No matter what theme you have chosen for your new kitchen, one of the door styles in our collection will be sure to suit your design.

For clean and contemporary kitchen designs, consider our simplistic Shaker door style. In more classical settings, our Traditional door may be more fitting.

Whatever your preferred style, you can see our frontals first-hand by ordering kitchen door samples. Our miniature doors are available in both sanded and lacquered, allowing you to see the natural beauty of the oak timber grain, or apply your own paint or treatment as required.
Alternatively, our doors can be hand-finished in any of the stunning paints from Farrow & Ball’s range. Choose from our pre-selected range off pastel, accent and strong accents, or pick a bespoke colour from any one of the other 111 shades in their exclusive collection.

Our samples are priced at just £20 including fast courier delivery, but if – after receiving your sample – you decide to go on and place an order for 10 or more of our kitchen cabinet doors, we will happily refund the cost of the sample to you.
