English classic Kitchen Featuring Aga

Denise & John Aga Review

 

So happy with our hand crafted Aga, made in Britain it has classic good looks around which our Acanthus Kitchen was designed. Cooking is a much more relaxed process and food tastes better. No need for a toaster, bread maker or slow cooker & the gentle warmth greets us as we enter our kitchen, which has become the focal point of our home.

Kaelo Integrated Wine cooler

Kaelo LogoInnovative Design – Kaelo

The kitchen is fast becoming the home of all the latest gadgets amongst seamless design. There are many cutting edge luxury Gadgets making life easier in the home & some can take centre stage when entertaining. The latest to come to the market is the Kaelo. Inspired from a dripping wet bottle served from an Ice bucket. Kevin Jabou founder of the Kaelo, was determined to find a solution that would keep wine perfectly chilled. The Kaelo’s designed to be modern, fun & something that would spark conversation.

Whilst spending time perfecting your new kitchen design to suit your lifestyle, appliances can add that extra style and sophistication. Whether you’re entertaining friends, having a romantic night in or just wanting a family meal. Kaelo boasts pioneering design with Innovative technology.

Pioneering design, lots of Fun

 

Their patented cooling system creates a jacket of cold air which wraps around the bottle allowing the bottle to stay completely dry and perfectly chilled. A simple touch on the crown activates the cooling system keeping your wine within 1-2c of perfect opening temperature. Minimum maintenance is required & Unlike an ice bucket there are no drips, refills or mess.

The Kaelo wine cooler would look great on a bar, in a drinks cabinet or situated within a kitchen Island servicing an accompanying seating area. 7 premium crown colours are available to suit most situations while 27 colours of LED light help suit the mood. Furthermore there is a freestanding option available offering the versatility of being able to keep your beverage chilled. So whether your relaxing in the living room or entertaining in the garden on a summers evening.

In conclusion the Kaelo integrated wine cooler is A little bit of luxury, handmade in England and I’m looking forward to incorporating this into my next Design!

Siemens Review

Siemens Review

I have used Acanthus in my own home and on the property developments I have been involved with, on each and every occasion I have been impressed, not only with the high level of design & product quality on offer from Acanthus, but also the great recommendation by Acanthus of the Siemens appliances, they were not the most expensive option, but looked fantastic and have gone on to provide excellent performance, full marks.

Parapan Review

We had our first and second kitchen designed by Acanthus Design of Crosby some years ago, our Acanthus designer recommended Parapan on the grounds of its long lasting quality, but also its ability to maintain its colour even in the bright sunlight of our apartment, good call, never had a problem, easy to maintain, and still looks as good as new years later, quite a bit more expensive than Vinyl finishes, but you get what you pay for.

Acanthus Design Review

I just wanted to reiterate how pleased we are with our finished kitchen. The change is dramatic to say the least, and it has quickly become the focal point of our home, rather than a dingy space where food is prepared. Every aspect of the process from initial consultation to final fit was clearly communicated and stress-free.  Even further than that, it was actually fun. That’s not a feeling we’ve ever experienced in previous house projects. I had a clear vision in my head of how I wanted this kitchen to feel, but never felt I was able to put into words how that might be. It feels exactly like I imagined – and now I CAN put it into words. Cosy, warm, modern, funky, individual and stunning. It’s been great watching people’s jaws drop when the walk in, and I’ve had several people say ‘Nicky, it’s so YOU.’  That you managed to do that with my inexpert ramblings and vague ideas from our first meeting is very impressive. The kitchen itself is very well-made. It feels incredibly sturdy and fits together beautifully. We had been used to gaps and cracks so this is wonderful. Every member of the Acanthus team and Phil Maitland’s team were really friendly and professional. Never patronising when I clearly had no idea what they were talking about, (which was most of the time) everyone was able to communicate effectively the jobs they were completing, the decisions I needed to make and the choices I had to opt between. We have business cards from a wide variety of professionals that we would not hesitate to recommend to friends in the future. The appliances recommended by you, are all far superior to what we had in place before.  Being advised by Acanthus on the make and model of all six appliances saved us a massive amount of time and effort that would have been spent trawling the Internet with no clear idea.”

Acanthus Kitchen & Gaggenau Appliances

Gaggenau Review

We have had the benefit of having Gaggenau appliances in two of the kitchens Acanthus designed for us, in our first kitchen from Acanthus my wife Liz, who is a fabulous cook, thoroughly enjoyed the experience of the larger ovens, steamer & hobs, all built with quality and the cook in mind, in our current home Acanthus again designed the kitchen and Gaggenau was again chosen after our first experience, this time we extended our selection to the fridge freezers as well, they look great and perform so well, as expected!

Pop Up Sockets

Pop Up Sockets Review & Information

 

As technology advances in all areas of life so does the tech found in the Kitchen & home. Gone have the days of just a simple oven & hob combo in the kitchen along with a mixing bowl, a few pans & a wooden spoon.

These Days we find ourselves with an abundance of tech. From mobile phones to bread making machines all requiring some form of power. As the kitchen has become more and more important as the hub of the home with everything from cooking, watching TV, entertaining and more happening in one area, we find ourselves needing to be more flexible with the space we have. Even with the addition of several wall sockets around the kitchen for powering everything, most of us still need more.

If you have found yourself unplugging a phone to plug in your blender or left wondering why the coffee machine never made your favourite mocha-chino only to find out someone unplugged the machine to charge their Tablet! then a pop up socket is going to be top of the list of must have items.

Making the Right Choice:

With several pop up sockets on the market there is a variety to choose from offering a suitable solution to worktop power in the kitchen and other areas around the home. Acanthus have been installing pop up sockets for many years and they are far from a new invention. We have noticed that most on the market are cheap looking items made from thin plastic and are not so much pop up but more drag up manually.

As leaders in kitchen & furniture design we always seek out the best products on the market to use in our installations offering you the very best the market has to offer while still taking into account the cost of such items. One of our top items we highly recommend are the pop up sockets by Socketbox! An intelligent design offering not just a reliable durable product but a piece of kit that ticks all the boxes!

Quooker Review

We were in two minds about including a Quooker tap when our designer from Acanthus suggested it in our kitchen, we considered it a luxury item……but, actually it’s a life changer! We save on space, energy and so much time .Our advice is: if you can’t decide then you have to include one, you won’t regret it.

Jen Corian Review

When discussing my kitchen with Acanthus, my designer suggested the use of Corian to enable the large shaped island top to maintain the sleek sweeping lines of the kitchen without joints, it worked a treat, we are so pleased with the finished kitchen which gives us great pleasure every day, and in particular our Corian work surfaces.
