Did you know?
In most UK homes the sink base is set at a height of around 900mm. For the average height person this is too low for comfort, you might have noticed this if you have used your sink for a prolonged period of time and got that nagging ache in the small of your back.

So, what is hot at the moment?
Geometry, lighting and the choice of materials used play a big part in modern kitchens and the versatility of our offer means that we can work with you to create really interesting, practical an inspiring designs. Our base units are available in 3 different heights, wall units come in 5 different heights and kitchen doors can be hinged, hinged in parallel, bi fold or sliding.
In nearly all kitchens in the UK the sinks are too low for comfortable use.
Modern German kitchens allow you to achieve that edgy loft look or go for a cool, classy style statement.
Our modern German kitchen collection is extremely flexible, allowing you to create a look from industrial through to sophisticated. You can also make easy, but interesting, transformations between your kitchen, diner and living areas. Teaming different colours works well for that contrasting look.
Innovative kitchens are a speciality of ours. The versatility of the product and wide choice of finishes and colour allow us to create fantastic contemporary kitchen designs.
Lighting is an integral part of the units and can be fitted at the factory. Both wall and base units can be lit and the use of lighting ranges from task, ambient, spotlights and plinth lighting. Used well these can have a dramatic and useful affect on the overall concept.
Today, most of us have a dishwasher so this is perhaps less important than it used to be but if it's an issue for you our modern kitchens have the option of a sink base at 1050mm high. You might be pleasantly surprised at the difference this makes from an ergonomic perspective.
Currently popular is the use of a mix of wood finishes like cuban oak or macassar with light white and cream colours. Perhaps using the wood finishes on base and tower units and white matt of gloss for the wall units. This combination of finishes brings an interesting contrast of light and textures and it's certainly a look that won't look dated in 5 or 10 years time.
And do you know why it won't date, have a look at the kitchen below and guess when it was installed.
How many of you plumped for 1931? Read on to learn how a woman called Margarete Schutte-Lihotzky had a world wide and long lasting influence on kitchen architecture. The image is of a reconstruction of the original in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The original kitchen was designed by Margarete and fitted in 10,000 flats in a housing project in Frankfurt in the early 1930's. Cheap, but effective and practical her conceptual thinking has influenced designers and manufacturers ever since even though the vast majority of them don't know this is the case.
The bold, innovative use of wood, metal and plastic looks relevant today and must have been incredibly futuristic 80 years ago. You can learn more about the history of modern kitchens here.
Our aim is to help you realise the Margarete in you and together we can create a kitchen that is, if not ground breaking, designed around you and your lifestyle.
