West End Interiors on why the kitchen is so important to any home design – and what design tips you should follow
The kitchen is arguably the most important part of your home, a project that many are hesitant to take on. At West End Interiors they strive to take that stress away from the end user, and provide designs and installations to the highest standard so you can enjoy those key spaces within your home. Also specialising in bathroom and bedroom designs, they provide premier quality furniture, fixtures and fittings from manufacturers all over Europe.
Due to the constant changes in styles and trends, it’s often difficult to know the right style and colour choices that you will still like in many years’ time. It’s important to make choices that you like, instead of what you think is of the current trends. Another factor is the style of your home and how this can influence your kitchen design – they love the timeless, traditional hand-made cabinetry from Colchester-based company Davonport, one of their most desirable furniture manufacturers, producing the highest quality furniture that will never go out of style. Because their furniture is all hand-made, it is completely bespoke to the customer so the possibilities for colours, sizes and interior solutions are almost endless.
As new technologies are constantly developing, kitchen appliances are too. Appliance manufacturers such as Bora, Siemens, Gaggenau and more target the consumer for more efficient cooking. Features such as home connect allow you to control your appliances via your phone or tablet. Downdraft extractor induction hobs eliminate the need for a separate extractor hood, saving cupboard space for extra storage. This also allows for hobs to be placed within an island, without the extractor obstructing the view into the rest of your kitchen or open-plan living space. Ovens are also getting an upgrade, with camera ‘browning’ detection in some of the top of the line ranges. The integrated camera along with artificial intelligence prepares your food just the way you like it, so you will no longer over-cook some of your favourite foods. Controlled by the paired app, you can specify the rate of ‘browning’ and once the desired level is reached, the oven switches off. It’s in ways like this and through new technologies that we have efficient cooking, in both reduced food waste and energy efficiency.
As they approach almost 40 years of business, West End Interiors has made its name through returning customers and recommendations, which has led us into the success we have achieved to this day. Offering a full service of designs and installations, they take you through each stage of the project to ensure an efficient timeline without compromise to the design. Visit their showroom or enquire for a no-obligation site survey following with a design for your next project that suits your individual needs. They understand that the way people use their kitchens, bathrooms or bedrooms is specific to the end user, which is why no two projects are the same.
