    New Year, New Kitchen

    by  • December 29, 2012 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    So was your Christmas all you’d hoped it would be or was it a bit of a let-down filled with kitchen catastrophes?

    Have you decided that next year it’ll be different?

    No more struggling to get the turkey into the smallest oven known to man; spending hours digging that mixer out from the back of the cupboard; struggling to prepare a gourmet Christmas meal for 20 with just half a metre of useable workspace…

    A new kitchen is clearly in order but where to start? Well, at the risk of blowing our own trumpet here at Beautiful Kitchen we’d recommend a very reasonably-priced subscription to our extraordinarily useful magazine. Every issue there’s tons of inspiration for kitchen design ideas, plus loads of expert advice on how to get the most from your space, our top picks for appliances big and small plus lots of lovely finishing touches.

    Call 0844 848 0848 and visit magazinesdirect.com/icqk for our New Year offer that will save up to 45%.

    We think it could make the difference between ending up with a nice kitchen and a truly beautiful one…

    Why not buy yourself (or a friend) a subscription?

    Modern kitchens, for now and forever

    by  • March 29, 2012 • Kitchen Inspiration • 0 Comments

    Modern is a word often bandied about to describe kitchens of a certain kind but it’s a label that can sometimes confuse us as consumers. When I think of modern, it’s all about pared-back design and clean lines. Yet, I sometimes find when talking to other people that for them modern just equates to new, or up-to-date in terms of its function – and that’s nowhere truer than in kitchens. My own hand-painted scheme is often described as modern although the Shaker-style cabinetry is something that’s been around for hundreds of years.

    What I love the best are those designs that truly blur the lines – classic schemes with a timeless feel and all the technological benefits that living in the 21st century affords us. Modern in the most encompassing sense of the word.

    Here are a few of my favourites from Beautiful Kitchens and House to Home

    Day 2: BK’s 12 days of festivities

    by  • December 24, 2011 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    It’s Christmas Eve, so I thought you deserved an early present – a kitchen retrospective! Here are just some of the gorgeous real-life kitchens we’ve featured this year….

    One of the stars of our April issue was this white glossy Abitalia kitchen with statement chairs by Casamania, a feature wall and chandelier light.

    These dining chairs are certainly eye-catching!

    Our July/August issue brought you a little slice of summer from a beachside home with a Poggenpohl kitchen…

    This open-plan kitchen made the most of its stunning views

    Finally, this simple white and walnut scheme from our October issue was designed by Alice Poole Architects with colour-changing LEDs for a variety of different looks.

    This colour-changing kitchen is a talking point with guests

    Remember, if you missed any of our issues this year, you can find them all at Mags UK. Each is packed with lots of expert advice and inspiration for planning your dream kitchen.

    Neil Lerner showroom opening

    by  • April 28, 2010 • Kitchen Inspiration, Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    Finchley Road in London is the location of Neil Lerner Solutions‘ new showroom – next to the existing shop. A slightly different take on the Neil Lerner product we kitchen lovers are familiar with, the Solutions range is a more affordable collection of kitchens for those who long for a Neil Lerner kitchen, but find that it doesn’t quite fall within their budget. 

    All the attention to detail touches remain – such as soft-close drawers with non-slip mats and under-shelf lighting, and the kitchens are still sourced from the same high quality German manufacturer as the higher end kitchens. There are eight new designs to choose from, including Rio, available in hi-gloss or matt finishes and Bristol. A little different from the ultra-contemporary designs we’re familiar with, Bristol features painted wood furniture, cornicing and a walnut-topped island. Prices start from just £12,00, so you can have your dream design without compromising on style. Emily
