Planning A Family Kitchen

December 2016

When planning a new kitchen the requirements of everyone who’ll be using it will need to be considered.

The kitchen is the heart of the home and it's important to design and create an adaptable space that all the family can enjoy using at the same time and grow into.

5 top tips to create a family kitchen that works! 

1. Install A Few Modern Appliances to help family life run smoothly

A Quooker boiling water tap providing an instant cup of tea, no kettle needed taking up valuable space and less water wastage. Introduce a Perrin & Rowe filteration tap to your kitchen design and immediately notice a significant difference in the taste and colour of your drinking water. Filtered water enhances the flavour of tea, coffee, soups and cooking in general.
