We all dream of buying the perfect kitchen, but sometimes we can’t imagine how it would work in our space. Or worse still, don’t know whether it’s within our budget.
Fortunately, the clever chaps at Magnet have created a new online application that allows you to quickly find your ideal kitchen, visualise it in your kitchen space and then calculate a guide price in just two simple steps…
Choose your dream kitchen from the extensive range to suit any taste.
You can shorten the list by choosing either modern or traditional, and narrow it even further by selecting your desired cabinet finish such as gloss white, matt coloured, light wood or dark wood.
Select your shape and finishes
Answer four easy questions: Is your kitchen L shape, U shape or Galley? Do you want laminate, wood or granite worktops? What appliance pack do you want? Finally, do you require installation?
The Kitchen Calculator will now use the information to create a bespoke kitchen and provide an estimated cost. Users can save or print off the design and take it to their nearest Magnet showroom to make their dream a reality.
Well, you can’t get easier than that!
According to news reports it’s easy to tell what couples with certain names will ask for as wedding presents.
‘The Smiths’ frequently ask for knife sets and other kitchen and dining equipment, while as ‘The Thompsons’ ask for every piece of kitchenware going, from high-tech gadgets to the basics.
Tableware and kitchen accessories are consistently popular but the survey has shown a resurgence in bakeware which suggests that newlyweds are keen to revert to the 1950s trend of home cooking and baking. This would fit in with the Magnet findings earlier in the year that found the kitchen to be the ‘hub of the home’.
‘The Joneses’ apparently throw a good party, as their list consists mainly of wine glasses, champagne flutes and beer glasses, meanwhile ‘The Williams’ enjoy the thought of having completely matching kitchenware.
The survey also showed that a lot of couples are asking for contributions towards their honeymoon rather than traditional presents, usually from couples who already live together and so have the usual household items.
