In the kitchen

Integrated cabinetry makes your space look steam lined and sleek.  Choices for benchtops are huge and available with multiple finishes and colour options.

Storage in a kitchen is a must!  Whether it’s with floor-to-ceiling cupboards or as a separate scullery, add as much storage as you can.

A full-height rubbish bin cupboard, especially for families keeps the mess in on tidy space and is easy to shut away out of sight.
