LG Black fridge, cooker and dishwasher

Polished stainless is out, being replaced by the sophisticated, clinical look of brushed black stainless steel. LG and Samsung both produce a range of fridge/freezers, cookers and dishwashers.

A word of warning, black stainless steel is not scratch resistant so, while it will look good now, it may not look as good in a couple of years.

Kitchens

The use of wood in kitchens is becoming less popular and the use of dark-coloured units is being used more in kitchen designs. If you decide to go for the black stainless steel appliances, you may be interested in a full-on black kitchen, something that was, until recently, unthinkable!

LED lights that change from warm white to cool white

Lighting changes how we see our surroundings. It can affect our mood, from feeling awake and alert to feeling relaxed and calm.

Lighting temperature chart

The chart shows how the “temperature” of light is measured. It goes from 2,700k, the warm light associated with old-fashioned bulbs in the home, through to 6,500k a blue/white light that is considerably more vibrant.

Lighting design, as part of the interior design of your new home or business, has just become more flexible and much more exciting with the new dynamic white range of LED lights.

The range of dynamic lights includes LED striplights to illuminate under cupboards, coves, or cabinets, downlighter bulbs that are often found in spotlights and LED light panels that are frequently seen in offices.

Dynamic lights change from warm white to cool white at the touch of a button to suite a task or mood.

Instead of having to make one, permanent choice in your new bathroom of a cool white to apply your makeup or of a warm white to have a relaxing bath, you can choose warm white or cool white, and even dim your lights, depending on the time or day or your mood.

You can light your kitchen with a bright, cool light for food preparation and change it instantly to a dimmed, warm light when your guests arrive. Easy!

Interior Design Impressions from the Milan Furniture Fair

Our team has just returned from a visit to the world-famous Milan Furniture Fair to explore the latest in interior design, furniture, bathroom and kitchen fashion and trends and to speak to the most exciting new suppliers in the marketplace.

In the furniture section of the show, we saw an increasing retro feel using fifties and sixties styling, with a modern twist, using high quality fabrics and leathers. What was most impressive were the suppliers of solid wood furniture for kitchens and gardens, with one manufacturer infilling wood with transparent resin to dramatic effect in their very thick, very solid, kitchen tables and worktops.

In the bathrooms section, we loved the bronze and copper finishes for bathtubs, a number of extremely innovative towel rails, with as much artistic impact as practical effect, and some beautiful sinks in stone and resin. One bathtub was even covered in fabric on the outside – interesting, but probably not appropriate for every client!

We returned with a wealth of catalogues and new, fresh, contacts ensuring that we can give our clients access to the most up to date and breath-taking high quality furniture, fixtures and fittings.
