ou have spent hours and hours deliberating on your colour choice of

tiles, paint and soft furnishings but it’s all too easy to over look the importance of lighting in your kitchen and bathroom. Lighting can dramatically transform the look of your room with the flick of a switch. Thought should be given to it at the specification stage of designing your new kitchen or bathroom, not after it has been installed as this could be too late. Lighting effects can highlight your beautiful new kitchen and bathroom, give you extra light in order to maximise the usability of your work surfaces and create a

wonderful ambience for relaxing and for entertaining guests. EVOLVED Lighting has evolved over the last ten years from the flickering, rather unflattering fluorescent lights, to the ‘I need replacing quite often’ halogen spot lights and capsules. Three cheers then for LED lights, around ten times more efficient than incandescent bulbs and using fewer materials, these lights do more with less. They last a lot longer than a traditional bulb, some even up to 50,000 hours - that’s over ten years worth if turned on for 8 hours everyday. No more buying and changing light bulbs. n

Going large A new addition to Fisher & Paykel’s portfolio of Tomorrows Kitchen range of 90cm-wide appliances It seems that no matter how big our refrigerator is, we always find a way to fill it up! We fill it up so much that sometimes we have to manoeuvre and clear things out before we can head to the supermarket. If your refrigerator is always crammed full, why not consider a Fisher & Paykel CoolDrawer. This new drawer is the perfect integrated solution. The Fisher & Paykel CoolDrawer is the world’s first integrated multitemperature refrigerator drawer. You can set the temperature to freezer, chill, fridge, pantry or wine with the touch of a button!

The Fisher & Paykel Pyrolytic multifunction oven is designed with simply perfect cooking in mind. It features a self clean function for ultimate convenience, while clean lines and flat panelling in glass and stainless steel compliment the style and elegance of any modern kitchen. A new 90cm version of its DishDrawer dishwasher is also now available. As well as offering the benefits of the original model – ergonomic drawer design, flexible racking and nine wash programmes, including delay start and eco options – the DishDrawer Wide allows for nine place settings, including large plates up to 315mm, and has height-adjustable racks.

Wouldn’t you love to have your meats readily available right under the cutting board station? Or maybe you want to keep your beers chilled and not take up much needed space in the main fridge? If you want more convenience in the kitchen this is the way to go!

ökotherm ovens - the clean air, clean kitchen solution.

No smells and no greasy air or deposits around the kitchen with ökotherm from Küppersbusch - the true clean kitchen solution. The patented ökotherm catalytic converter system used in Küppersbusch ovens transforms dirty, greasy air emitted during baking and roasting into clean air. The oven fan passes the grease-laden air through a ring-shaped catalytic converter, where the air is cleaned. The cleaned air is then recirculated back into the oven - keeping the oven gleaming. Plus since ökotherm cleans the air inside the oven, only clean air escapes into the kitchen, keeping the kitchen clean and free of greasy deposits and nasty odours. No cooking smells and a clean kitchen. It’s good for the food too. The constant supply of cleansed, moist air keeps food particularly juicy and preserves the natural flavors and aroma, which leads to better results every time. We also have the perfect solution for those unfortunate little spills in the oven ökoEmailPlus a super smooth and pore-free non-stick enamel which prevents those spills and spats from sticking. Making those unwanted deposits easy to wipe away. All Küppersbusch built-in appliances are available with a full five year parts and labour warranty for total peace of mind. For more than 136 years the world over, professional chefs have been choosing Küppersbusch appliances for their kitchens. Küppersbusch ovens have been used in all formats of MasterChef for over 6 years.

Modern Edge An outdated shower room was transformed into a beautiful high quality wet room. Lisa worked around the shelf that Mrs Gay wanted to keep, and included the latest innovative products to give a modern touch to a Victorian town house.

‘We appreciated Lisa’s honesty about products so that we could combine our budget with bathroom flare and quality. Due to Lisa’s professional attitude and passion, our bathroom was finished promptly and to a high standard. We are over the moon with the end result and would definitely recommend Gallery Showroom.’ revealed

Hot Hot Hot! boiling hot water taps

GROHE Red Boiling Hot Tap

kettle ... who needs one? Kitchen designers are evolving our kitchens from a room with a purpose to the focal point of our home. Kitchens are now becoming social areas and are often encompassed into a larger living space where the whole family can socialise together, without the chef for the evening being locked away!

Triflow Quadra Electronic

This evolution means many kitchens now have a very large central island and a superb bank of furniture to incorporate storage and appliances, this then arises a small problem where is the kettle going to live? Designers have had to settle for second best up to now with a separate hot water tap but who wants to see two different design of tap next to each other on the centre piece of the kitchen?

WE

LOVE THIS

Well designers wishes have been answered with superb 4-in 1 hot water taps. Water is produced at 98 degrees - a perfect temperature for your cup of tea! It’s instantaneous so no more waiting for the kettle to reach boiling point! They are child friendly too with ingenious ways to turn the boiling hot water on. My favourite has to be the magnificent Electronic Quadra range (available in three designs) this tap is the bees knees, producing both filtered boiling hot and chilled cold water and the standard hot and cold water you would expect. Prices range from around £550 - £4000.

All available to order from Gallery Showroom www.melbros.com/galleryshowroom
