They say the kitchen is the heart of any home and while many of us may think about investing in what our kitchen looks like, at The Panelling Centre, we know it’s also important to think about the appliances you’re going to put in it.
Trends may come and go but there are some that are worth investing in. For those planning to upgrade their kitchen this summer, Geraldine O’Donoghue of In-House Appliance Centre, which is located inside The Panelling Centre showroom in Deansgrange, has identified three kitchen trends that will stand the test of time and take your kitchen from good to great.
Nowadays, making the most of the space you’ve got is high on the priority list of homeowners and integrated appliances is a growing trend and the ideal way to make your kitchen appear streamlined and sleek.
Where once having designer brands on show was stylish, minimalism is the new face of luxury and In-House Appliance Centre offers a range of kitchen solutions to conceal your appliances including fridges, dishwashers and dryers to add a touch of elegance to the hub of your home.
At In-House Appliance Centre showroom in Deansgrange, you’ll find the latest premium integrated appliances which harmonise with their surroundings, including pantry fridges, corner fridges, drawer fridges and BIOFRESH fridges. The top quality Liebherr Pantry is made to measure and seamlessly integrates into any kitchen design, complete with compartments to refrigerate and freeze food with the added luxury of an automatic ice maker. Not only will the Liebherr Pantry store your food in the most stylish way, the BIOFRESH function also helps to retain the healthy vitamins, aroma and appetising appearance of the food within.
Combination convention and steam cooking ovens cook food faster, using less energy, heating your ingredients more evenly and retaining moisture so are a must for all foodies out there.
The days of whacking your leftovers in the microwave and nuking the goodness out of your food are over. Steam locks in those all-important nutrients and eliminates the need for oil. A combi-oven removes the need for a microwave by offering the same settings such as defrosting and reheating, with better results. What combi-ovens are becoming known for are their ability to regenerate foods, achieving the same quality and taste as a fresh meal through reheating.
Combi-ovens are helping to provide restaurant quality food right in the comfort of your own home, depending on your cooking skills of course!
At In-House Appliance Centre, customers can find a range of combi-ovens including the Neff Combination Oven with Steam and Microwave which expertly cooks and regenerates foods.
Eco Waste Disposal
Concerns for the environment and how we manage domestic waste is at an all-time high. This means that disposal solutions like in-sink kitchen waste disposal units, are becoming more and more popular in Irish homes. Products like this have been favoured in America for years but traditionally frowned upon in European countries, due to their reputation as water wasters.
New technological advancements in water efficiency and noise reduction in newer waste-disposal units have now made it a viable option for Irish households, reaping many benefits for the environment. According to the Department of the Environment, every household in Ireland is responsible for an astonishing one tonne of food waste per year and having a sufficient way of reducing our carbon footprint as a country has never been more important.
Products like the InSinkErator Evolution breaks down food waste using built-in grind chamber and washes the waste down the drain resulting in only tiny particles which can be easily processed by local water treatment centres. The InSinkErator disposal units are priced from €299 at In-House Appliance Centre and offer a great solution to domestic waste, keeping the environment in mind.
The Appliance Centre range includes top end brands of ILVE, Smeg, Everhot, Wolf, SubZero, Franke, Blanco, De Dietrich, La Canche, Falmec, Quooker Boiling Hot water taps and Grohe Filter Taps.
In-House Appliance Centre is based in The Panelling Centre, Deansgrange Business Park showroom which you can find on the map here.
