Mirror Sliding Doors

While framed sliding doors with mirrors are much more expensive than melamine swinging doors with hinges, they’re worth it in the long run. They add value to the house and there are many different designs in sliding doors that can complement the decor of the rest of the bedroom and the house itself. 

The most popular cupboard with sliding doors aside from mirrored doors are constructed from MDF which can be plain or routed and painted to suit the rest of the bedroom. The mirror sections are typically glass with a reflective layer on one side and for safety, and most sliding mirror doors are laminated. 

Cupboards with sliding doors are simply moulded into the design of any room, and can choose from various designs and styles as well as finishes, and also sizes that will fit comfortably in the space with the right amount of storage areas for your needs. Also, consider that sliding doors can be a feature of any cupboard or closet in your house where you need extra storage.

Subdivisions in your cupboards with sliding doors can help you organise your clothes and shoes and other accessories rather than letting them pile up in one space making them hard to find. Some cupboards come with extra shelving.

How to plan for a new kitchen

If you want a new kitchen, you may have a very clear vision of what you want, right down to the taps, sinks and flooring.If you want a new kitchen, you may have a very clear vision of what you want, right down to the taps, sinks and flooring.
Communicating both your likes and dislikes is very important in order for your kitchen designer to be able to come up with an effective solution. While you may have a clear picture in your head of what the end-result will be, others may not, so finding a way to communicate what you want could be very beneficial.
We have come up with five easy things you can do to help get the most from the kitchen planning process.

Take measurements
If you plan to visit our showroom, take your kitchen measurements with you, this will help us come up with a design. Alternatively, a design consultant can visit your home, take measurements, and then design a 3D plan with you as well as show you samples and materials. 

Make a mood board
A mood board is a great way to organise your thoughts and should include everything from the biggest parts of a project right down to the smallest details. You could include pictures of the style of kitchen you like cut from magazines or a swatch of material in a colour you love. In creating a mood board of ideas, your vision will become easier to communicate to others and will help everyone (including yourself) see the bigger picture.

Be clear on what will or won’t work in the space
You know your kitchen best and know how the space is used, help your designer come up with a design that meets your expectations by noting down what you like and what you don’t like about how your kitchen is currently configured.

Consider your gadgets
If one of the reasons you need a new kitchen is a lack of storage, be sure to mention this to your planner. If you have a bread maker or a rarely used coffee maker in the garage, you will probably want your new kitchen to accommodate all these additional items. This means that extra storage must be built into the plan if possible.

Know your budget
Whether you are throwing caution to the wind or working on a tight budget, be clear on how much you have to spend and where you want to prioritise your money.This will help you when it comes to making decisions and focus your choices.

Of course an experienced kitchen designer will be able to work with whatever information you supply. Use our design consultants to help you to make your new kitchen space work and if you are struggling for inspiration, don’t worry, on our website you’ll find plenty of kitchen ideas.

Pot Filler Tap

Generally found in high end kitchens, the pot filler tap is becoming a popular choice in today’s modern kitchen. The swinging cold water tap, mounted above the hob allows you to easily fill up pots directly on the hob without having to carry around heavy pots from the sink, adding convenience and function. Plus the classic look of a jointed-arm tap adds a touch of elegance and practicality. But is this feature really necessary or just a luxury? It is a luxury that creates convenience, and convenience is a big factor when creating the kitchen of your dreams. 
Lighten The Load
Sure it’s a great opportunity to start bulking up on some upper body strength, but unfortunately that type of strain can go straight to your back instead. A pot filler allows you to avoid lifting, straining or twisting. Critics will point out that you still have to carry the pot to the sink to empty it when you’re done. Also, when your dishwasher is done cleaning your dishes you still have to unload it, and when your oven finishes cooking your meal you still have to serve it to your guests. In other words, we’ll gladly take convenience wherever we can get it.
Save Time & Hassle
Perfecting a meal can quickly become a balancing act of multi-tasking. The pasta needs 12 minutes to boil, the sauce needs to simmer for 1 hour, the broccoli needs to be steamed for 5 minutes and your spouse is trying to rinse the dishes before your dinner guests arrive. What was already a challenge in and of itself has suddenly became a circus of yelling and waiting for water to go from hot to cold and back to hot, and bartering favors just to get a chance at the tap. Instead of juggling the kitchen sink, you could be out of each other’s hair thanks to a second water source. A pot filler reduces conflict and creates more opportunities for multi-tasking. 
Do More
You may not realize how much you truly use water in the kitchen until you have a pot filler. Think about how many dishes and items in the kitchen need water, from boiling and steaming to watering and cleaning, and then how often you need to add water. You add water to soups, pots of rice or oatmeal, the slow cooker, smoothies, your potted herbs, a tea kettle, the list goes on. A second water source in a separate location from your sink allows you to do so much more.
Add Style
The ideal kitchen contains appliances and fixtures which not only add function, but also Aesthetics. For example, a sink and tap can endure the rigors of daily use while also adding a touch of beauty to your kitchen. Just like your sink’s tap, a pot filler is both practical and beautiful. A pot filler gives you an opportunity for a new shiny fixture that complements your other hardware on a wall that would otherwise have nothing.

On a scale of “Need It Now” to “Walking Out The Door To Get One,” how badly do you now want a pot filler tap?

How to choose a sink

A kitchen sink can be the making or breaking of a new kitchen which is why it has to be considered with care. It's also important that you take into consideration the sinks surroundings. People tend to use their dishwasher's as a means to clean their pots and pans rather than the sink, but don't think that you can neglect one of the most commonly used pieces of equipment in the kitchen, the sink, if you do, you will probably end up regretting your choice. In order to get your sink just the way you like it, consider the following points that we at Weizter suggest: 
Material: When choosing the material of your sink take a look around your kitchen and see what colours are most prominent. Ask yourself a few questions such as: what colour are the walls, what material are the door knobs made of and what style of blinds and accessories do I have.
Size: The size of the sink is highly important because although you use your dishwasher for the majority of washing up, you may need extra wash space for when family and friends join you for dinner. It would also be a good idea to consider how many children you have in your home. If all of them want to wash their hands at the same time, you will be grateful for that extra space.
Style: What style of sink would you most get along with and which would look better in your kitchen? The choices that you have are either: inset, under-mounted or butler. Under-mounted sinks are fixed to the bottom of the worktop which gives you more worktop space which looks very slick and modern, but you have to be prepared for the fact that you won't have a side drainer. Under-mounted sinks cannot be used with laminate surfaces because you can't seal the edges of the cut-out. Inset or drop-in sinks are easy to fit; especially if you have natural wood worktops. Butler sinks are used in junction with farmstyle kitchens but be weary of the amount these sinks can cost.

Kitchens of the Future

Integrating or universal design, means thinking through a design and approaching it with common sense. Some of this prediction is driven by the growing need for multi-generational design. The numbers of households that include several generations is growing at a rapid rate. This type of design must simultaneously cater to the elderly, children, and everyone in between.

Universal design is also very much about letting go of long-held kitchen design traditions that just don’t make sense. Homeowners are already beginning to question why they have to bend over to get dinner out of the oven and they are ready to do something about it.

The kitchen of the future will incorporate many more user-friendly features:

  • Multi-level countertops
  • Media worked into the design of the kitchen for an increasingly connected population
  • Appliances moved to more accessible areas
  • Less over-the-counter cabinetry for a more open and accessible work space
  • Lighting that highlights the backsplash and puts light where it’s most needed

The goal with all of this is to bring functionality and aesthetics into the same space. It is possible for them to exist together. Skilled designers spent so long bumping up style in the kitchen that the pendulum is swinging in the opposite direction. But designers are emphasizing a balance instead of one or the other.

Making the most of a small kitchen

If your kitchen is on the small side, you would have been faced with a daily difficulty of where exactly to put everything! Whether it is cupboards that spill out their contents every time you open the door or a lack of worktop space for food preparation, small kitchens can definitely be a challenge.

However, no matter how small your kitchen is there are a number of ways to maximise the available space and ensure that it functions as you need it to. A great way to make the most of your kitchen’s dimensions is to opt for a re-design. A dedicated Weizter designer is able to re-design the space, taking into account your budget and needs, to ensure the available space is used as efficiently and effectively as possible.

To further help you make the most of your kitchen, we have come up with 3 easy tips and tricks that can help you utilize the space you have.

1. Light is key.

If you are looking to refit your small kitchen and extending the space isn’t an option, choose a kitchen with a light finish such as the high gloss which helps bounce the light around the room.

2. Cupboard Optimization.

Helping to maximise every available inch, in cupboard storage is a great way to make the most of your cupboard space.

3. Integrated appliances.

Integrated appliances are a great way to help a small kitchen feel bigger, with everything hidden by cupboard fronts, the illusion is of an uninterrupted run of units, maximising the feel of the room.
