Chances are, you’ve seen the ‘Which?’ logo when searching for services online, when out and about or on television adverts – but what does it actually mean to be a Which Trusted Trader?
Which? is a not-for-profit charitable organisation, with no shareholders, owners or government stakeholders – a completely independent organisation with no hidden agendas. (You won’t even find any advertisements on their websites or in their magazines.) In their own words:
“Which? exists to make individuals as powerful as the organisations they...
Modern kitchens often still follow the classic ‘L’ or ‘U’ shape design and layout but with some key style differences. Perhaps the most notable difference in modern kitchens is the popularity of the island, the choice of colours and materials, and the use of lighting.
A mainstay of a stylish kitchen, the island is becoming even more practical in the modern kitchen. As well as looking good as the centrepiece of your kitchen, islands can be fitted with practical yet stylish features such as sinks, concealed chopping...
Adequate storage is essential for any kitchen space. Having room for everything keeps your kitchen looking tidy and makes preparing food easier. Here, we’ve listed some of the best ways to maximise the storage space in your kitchen.
Making the most of your walls is a great way to keep things stored. You can use the walls in a variety of ways, standard units, extra tall units, shelving, hanging pots and pans on a rack and knives on a magnetic strip. The ceiling can also be used to hang pots and pans.
Maximise the Awkward...
We could all use a bit more space. Compared to twenty years ago, homeowners in Suffolk own substantially more furniture and material possessions. It doesn’t help that the UK is in the grip of a curious property phenomenon. Almost every country in the developed world is seeing an increase in average property sizes, but British homes are shrinking.
We’re now paying more for smaller houses. This is, in part, because the UK is one of few nations to have no minimum space laws. So, families are having to get innovative with their interior...
There is nothing interior designers love to show off more than a flawless master bedroom. While kitchens and bathrooms get lots of focus for their ‘community’ dynamic, it is the bedroom which represents pure comfort. It is your kingdom, your private domain. So, it has to be perfect in every way.
It is a misconception to assume that there are no challenges associated with designing a beautiful bedroom. There are few technical limitations, but it can still be tricky to strike the right balance between practicality and luxury. Fortunately,...
People in the UK live in some of the smallest homes in the world. Across Europe and America, the average property size is significantly bigger than it is in Britain. Yet, it does not stop innovative designers from creating beautiful, expansive spaces within these little ones. In fact, this country is home to some of the most famous ‘tiny’ interiors in the world.
Luckily, your home is likely to be more cosy than tiny. You might even have a spare bedroom or utility area which, with the right tools, can offer much potential. For many, extra...
We’re used to the idea of bathrooms and kitchens being ‘bespoke,’ but a lot of homeowners don’t know that bedrooms can also be customised and fitted in the same way; as a cohesive, ready to use design or layout. In fact, the popularity of bespoke bedrooms is currently on the rise, because they can end up being significantly more affordable than a piece by piece refit.
From fitted wardrobes to custom floors, drapes, and furnishings, with a bespoke space, you know that you’re getting something completely unique. Also, there’s no...
These days, most of the things that we buy are found and purchased online. From shoes to cooking equipment, television sets, cosmetics, and pet food; the internet is a place where everything is available. However, there are some things that you really do need to see and touch before you take them home. If you’re thinking about investing in a new kitchen, for example, it’s important to get up close and personal with your favourite designs.
Fortunately, there are plenty of kitchen showrooms up and down the country. While many providers do...
If you are thinking about renovating or redesigning your kitchen, it is important to have a cohesive plan and a good sense of what you want. It doesn’t have to be a rigid one – you can, of course, change your mind along the way – but it is always useful to have clear goals in mind. Otherwise, a fun and exciting remodelling project can start to feel like a bit of a chore.
The good news is that you won’t be hard pressed for choice when it comes to designs, colour schemes, accessories, appliances and more. Here at Connells KBB in Suffolk,...
Whilst splashbacks are never really the first thing which comes to mind when shopping for a bespoke kitchen, this is one accessory which is becoming more important all the time. Far from being a hastily chosen extra, well designed splashbacks behind the hob and sink can now be used to make a bold style statement.
In fact, if you pay a visit to the Connells Kitchen showroom in Suffolk, you will get the chance to see just how much of a difference great splashbacks can make to the overall look and feel of a kitchen. As well as its aesthetic...
