You may have noticed that no Foodie Blog was posted on 1st January. This was not due to forgetting due to excesses over Christmas making us forget (honest!) but a conscious decision to make some changes to the blog and the website in general.


Having run the monthly food blog for almost 2 years we feel we've covered a lot of ground and as all the blogs are available in the archive (see Read more...

Aprons at the Ready!

Last week we looked at creative and imaginative play and this week we’re still in a creative frame of mind but looking more specifically at arts and crafts.

Science and Appliances!

If your children are more budding scientists than bakers, or you just want something fun but educational, why not try some funky science experiments that you can do with a few simple kitchen items.

A closer look at our Kitchens by Colour: White

POSTED ON 18th May 2014

White kitchens continue to be the most popular choice by customers. This is because a white kitchen acts as a blank canvas that you can add to in any way. It works equally well for very modern interiors as it does for traditional ones and you can express yourself through the style of the kitchen itself or through the colours and accessories Read more...

A closer look at our Kitchens by Colour: Cream & Neutral

POSTED ON 18th May 2014

A cream or neutral colour kitchen can create a blank canvas just as white can but in a softer, more subtle way. Ranging from very pale, almost white cabinets to creamy lattes and taupes, these kitchens can please even the pickiest of home designers.

A closer look at our Kitchens by Colour: Colour Combinations

POSTED ON 18th May 2014

What do we mean by colour combinations? Well these are kitchens that have added extra interest through combining different colours and finishes within one scheme. This can help differentiate zones within the kitchen or simply tone down what could otherwise be a very modern or traditional space.
