In my last blog I touched upon the fact that the way we live in our homes is changing. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the kitchen. Gone is the idea that it is simply a place to prepare meals; gone is the belief that the 3 basic functional appliances serve every purpose we have; gone is the need to have the actual dining take place in a totally separate room. Now is the time for bi-fold doors bringing the garden indoors and for opening up the room to allow the effortless combination of cooking, dining and relaxing in a sociable, family friendly space. Bring in the sleek (and perhaps even glossy) units, bring in the practical but beautiful work surfaces, bring in the feature appliances and bring in the mood lighting and chrome fittings (perhaps even set within a modern vaulted ceiling). Realise the potential your new dining kitchen has and make it the true heart of your very stylish home. Contact us and we will be happy to guide you through what can be an overwhelming number of possibilities, allowing you to keep it within a realistic budget and with the peace of mind that comes automatically when you use Shephards.
