Kitchen style made convenient

A slick kitchen design means more than a trendy colour theme and stylish unit faces; it requires the incorporation of modern and convenient appliances that will not only improve the overall appearance of your kitchen but that also makes life easier for you.

Essential to most kitchens are, for example, a dishwasher, blender, kettle and toaster. There are many of these on the market that can compliment your current kitchen style, or even mask the appliance, such as dishwashers and fridges with unit doors to conceal the practical elements behind closed doors.

The smaller appliances that remain on display come in a range of classy designs including smooth curves or modern geometric lines, chrome, colourful material or with a retro feel, all dependent on your kitchen’s look and your own taste.

In recent years, coffee machines have become de rigour, and are more and more frequently being shopped for. Though coffee has been around for longer than tea has in this country, the influx of coffee chains throughout high streets has led to a nationwide addiction to café quality coffee, and as such the market for coffee makers at home has rocketed.

These allow you to recreate your chosen style of coffee, be it cappuccino or espresso, in the comfort of your own kitchen. Such machines are very stylishly presented, to suit the type of consumer who is likely to be interested in making fresh coffee. Coffee machines have become synonymous with a sophisticated home.

Debenhams is a good place to start when looking for such a product; they stock well-renowned coffee maker brands such as Gaggia, Nespresso and Magimix, as well as offering a Morphy Richards range, an affordable brand. Other names nestle alongside these, as well as their own range.

Depending on how much you want to get in the spirit of it, there are simple coffee makers through to café-style ranges, including extras such as grinding machines. A very cool addition to any kitchen.
