Extractor fans have been around for a long time, and yet many kitchens still don’t include them in their design. Professional kitchen planners know the importance of this appliance, and you should too! Say goodbye to cooking odours and smells, and install this vital kitchen accessory.

2. The integrated grater

Do you have difficulty grating? Perhaps you grate food so often, that you could use a helping hand? Either way, this innovative invention is safe, stylish, and sure to improve your kitchen’s serviceability.

3. A brilliant bread slicer

These days good bread is a far cry from the pre-sliced feathery white rectangular prisms you may have known from childhood. Good bread is not sliced, but rather artisanal baked with natural ingredients. This is brilliant, but hard to slice. Forget struggling with a bread knife only to deal with uneven slices, this bread slicer is seriously chic, and sure to impress as well as assist.

For that added feeling of luxury and style, strip lighting added to the underside of your joinery will impart a sense of lavish impressiveness. 

This can be achieved easily, and is a perfect weekend DIY project!

5. Oversized cooktops

When designing a sleek and striking kitchen, and oversized hob (stove) or cooktop, can really take things to the next level. Get creative and start thinking outside the box, with an impressive and enticingly large cooker.

6. Large indoor grills

As well as a large cooker, an indoor grill can really up the ante when designing a kitchen. These can be retro-fitted into your existing cook space, but remember to add the extractor fan to suck up all of the smoke and grill fumes!

6. Ceramic glass or induction hobs

If you fancy a sleeker and more refined aesthetic in your kitchen, you might want to consider a ceramic glass or induction hob. These are easy to clean and maintain, while being far safer than their gas counterparts.

7. Get organised with drawer tidies

A messy cutlery or utensil drawer is a definite no-no for any functional and exquisite kitchen. Invest a small amount of money in an innovative drawer tidy and transform your cupboards from drab and disorganised to fab and orderly.

8. Timber chopping boards

When it comes to chopping boards, bigger is always better! Timber chopping boards are safer than slippery plastic, can be sterilised easily and last a very long time when maintainer correctly. Not only do they make a great place to prepare food, they can also be used to serve food and work brilliantly as a surface for mixed platters.
