Cooking should be simple and fuss-free, which is why we’ve designed our kitchen appliances to solve common kitchen dilemmas. Our Bamia cooker hood has touch free controls, so you needn’t worry about mucking it up with messy fingers. You can also pair your Bamia hood with your hob for the optimum extraction rate whilst cooking. And of course, no luxurious kitchen would be complete without a wine cooler. We have a selection of affordable options that will undoubtedly take your dinner parties up a notch.

Streamline your kitchen storage

Remember, less is more. The last thing you want is a jumbled kitchen full of piled up plates and seldom-used appliances. A luxurious kitchen should be well organised and clean. With our Pebre internal storage and clever wall mounted kitchen storage, you can keep your worktops clear and your cupboards neat and tidy. Our Kora waste system is totally customisable – the bins can be stacked on top of each other to create a system that works for you and your household. They’ve been tested for 80,000 use cycles (which is equivalent to about 10 years).

Lavish kitchen accessories

Last but most definitely not least, it’s time to think about your kitchen accessories and finishing touches. Our Monobloc kitchen taps are easy on the eyes, as well as the wallet. Or why not invest in a boiling water tap? Perfect for an on-demand cuppa. We’ve got a range of kitchen sinks that will fit in with any style. For a reliable and super affordable option – choose a stainless steel sink, or our trendy resin sinks will give your kitchen that something extra. Kitchen lighting can make all the difference. Whether it’s counter and cabinet lighting, spotlights, or beautiful pendants – we’ve got everything you need to make your kitchen stand out from the rest.
