Enough talk about investing in a new kitchen space, it’s time to turn your attention to what comes after. Once you’re comfortable in your kitchen; then starts the process of dressing it up. The floors might need re-tiling, the counters a little more clutter, and those walls more shelves. From exciting party knick-knacks to elegant glasses for an evening drink; from coffee and tea accessories to barbeque bites, there’s no better place to start cooking for kitchen collectibles than at BI&L. Serving up two new collections; with Sagaform from Sweden and Tepandine from Germany, you now have all the ingredients to equip your kitchen with all the fun and chic there is.
