Add those personal finishing touches to your new kitchen

It’s those small details that make your kitchen personal to you.

Whether it’s splashes of your favourite colour or lots of high-tech gadgetry – finishing touches bring your kitchen to life.

Focus on an eye-catching centrepiece

Choose one item as a central eye-catching feature of the room. It can be functional or decorative.

If you love cooking, it could be a large range oven or Aga. If you love to entertain, your standout feature could be a beautiful dining table or high-gloss granite kitchen island with stools on either side.

If a formal or informal dining area is at the heart of your kitchen, give it special illumination such as a low hung pendant light to specifically highlight the island or table.

If art and design are your thing, then your eye-catching item could be a print or painting or an oversized mirror or clock. If you like to experiment with colour, then introduce a coordinated scheme with matching or contrasting window dressing, rugs and soft furnishings.

Use lighting to create atmosphere

You can use lighting to change the atmosphere of a room. Clever lighting in a kitchen helps you switch between cooking mode and relaxed dining.

For example, spotlights can be directed towards food preparation areas. Under-cabinet lighting will give even more definition to your workspace.

However, once you’ve finished cooking and want to sit down to eat, you can switch these off in favour of subtler lighting. Pendant lights above tables or freestanding lamps will provide softer, more intimate illumination.

Install technology to entertain

More and more, kitchens are being used as entertainment spaces - because we all spend so much time there every day.

Fit a large screen to the wall to watch films, TV and play games. Meanwhile, a sound system can be hidden away discreetly. Tiny speakers make a big sound, and you can create a kitchen disco without taking up any space.

Enjoy the latest food and drink innovations

Kitchen tech isn’t just about entertainment. The latest devices and appliances can change the way you eat and drink.

Quooker has transformed the world of taps with innovations like all-in-one taps that provide cold, hot and boiling water from one tap - no more waiting for the kettle to boil. You can make tea, coffee and other hot drinks fast. You can also speed up the cooking process as you have hot water whenever you need it.

Quooker Fusion offers cold, hot and boiling water from one tap and chilled sparkling water when you combine it with a CUBE.

There are also a number of filtered water options available. No more having to refill jugs. You can have delicious, high-quality filtered water straight from the tap. Use this water to fill your kettle and steam iron and you won’t have to descale the appliance.

Create your own kitchen cafe

When it comes to making hot drinks, there are a whole host of clever new devices on the market.

From coffeemakers that offer lattes, cappuccinos and every other variation of coffee you can think of - to waffle machines you can operate from your smartphone. Why not create your own kitchen café?

This is great fun if you love entertaining friends and family informally or if you often have a house full of teenagers.
