It’s said to be the heart of a home, but new research carried out by The Panelling Centre reveals that 80% of us are unhappy with our current kitchen, and 94% are jealous of a friend or family member’s kitchen.
Our survey reveals that the items we get a touch of the green-eyed monster for include a pantry; a pull-out larder; a Belfast sink; and an American-style fridge freezer.
Read on to learn more about these most-wanted kitchen staples.
When it comes to pantries, The Panelling Centre uses only the finest top-quality materials to create tailored storage spaces to meet the needs and desires of our customers. Some of the many benefits to having one in your home include:
If you’re buying or building a new home, creating a walk-in pantry could be an option and The Panelling Centre can customise the layout to suit your needs. Alternatively, installing built-in tall units as part of your kitchen cabinets to house an open out pantry or pull-out larder can be a great cost-effective way to save space in your kitchen design.
Should space not allow for a pantry, a pull-out larder is a cost-effective alternative.
At The Panelling Centre, we have a number of pull-out larder options which can be created from solid oak, incorporating drawers, bins, chrome wireworks, or a combination of personalised fittings such as spice racks, baskets or wine racks. Our solid oak pantry is a thing of beauty, with exquisite attention to detail and a superb finish.
With a range of sizes available, we have something in-store to suit all budgets and tastes.
We weren’t surprised to see the Belfast sink highlighted as one of Irish people’s most sought-after kitchen features. A timeless classic that compliments any traditional or contemporary kitchen, it is easy to clean and will stand the test of time. The inset ceramic design comes in both single and double options and here at The Panelling Centre we can tailor the design to suit your needs.
A highly coveted item on any kitchen wish list, the various models we supply include double height fridge and freezer models with a practical ice machine and filter water tap. We strive to keep up with all the latest kitchen trends and have noticed that integrated full-length side-by-side fridge freezers are becoming a more popular alternative, and can be ordered directly from any of our branches nationwide.
