Make the most of limited storage space and let the PEKA Kitchen Tower can be your own ‘personal toolbox’.

Peka are a dynamic, independent manufacturing and trading company with an in-depth and hard-won knowledge of the kitchen trade. They have certainly thought of everything with the new Kitchen tower.

In the two most popular colours, white and anthracite, the PEKA Kitchen Tower is available to fit both 450mm and 600mm base cabinets and comprises a flexible storage system for the interior offering a better use of space than conventional drawers. With easy access from three sides and above, and a clear view of all contents, Kitchen Tower is designed to accommodate all shapes and sizes whilst making excellent use of awkward spaces. The tiered storage comprises an upper level of plastic trays with adjustable dividers for smaller items and a four-section spice dispenser with transparent lid. The lower level has a non-slip mat and is ideal for large items such as tall bottles and pans which can be separated using the magnetic dividers. There is also clip-on side storage for large and small chopping boards.



Offering famous Swiss quality and innovation the Peka Kitchen Tower makes use of those awkward spaces and is practical down to the last detail.

Every kitchen is full of utensils, cookware, dishes, cutlery and spices that are only used occasionally. We tend to use the same utensils and ingredients day to day. Wouldn't it be practical if we could store them all in the same cupboard? The Kitchen Tower is the perfect solution!



Work efficiently, cook efficiently, have your most used kitchen tools right at your fingertips.

LDL Components Ltd, the leading distributor of furniture fittings and accessories, is celebrating its twelfth year in business with a major brand relaunch focusing on the key strengths of the company as it moves forward.
 
Managing Director Matthew Lord explains, “Working closely with specialist brand strategists, The House, we conducted an in-depth review of every aspect of our business, identifying our major strengths and clear future objectives. Our new logo ‘Designed for Life’ encapsulates the ‘built to last’ promise that underlies not only our product range but also our business relationships with both our suppliers and customers.”


 
The relaunch coincides with the relocation of the company’s Bath headquarters to substantially larger premises. The move, within the same Bath Business Park in Peasedown St John, gives the rapidly growing company double the space of the current premises and also allows the addition of a 2,000 sq ft, purpose built showroom scheduled to open in Spring 2016. 
 
 
A performance driven company, LDL prides itself on being ‘obsessed’ with customer service. This dedicated commitment to service, coupled with trusted brand partners such as Blum, Wesco, Peka & Furnipart, has led to twelve years of impressive year on year growth for LDL and an industry-leading fulfilment rate of 98.5%. Indeed the company won the Most Impressive Growth category at the National Entrepreneur Awards 2014.
 
Crucial to the relaunch is ensuring and consolidating the engagement and commitment of all staff and therefore a key part of the programme has been the development of an internal code of conduct clearly setting out company standards to which employees will ‘sign up’. As Matthew explains, “The company’s most powerful asset is its personnel and their friendly, approachable relationships with business partners and customers alike. We are always seeking to improve how we work.”
 
A brochure presenting the aims and strategy of the newly-focused LDL for existing business partners and new contacts has also been prepared. In addition, a new website is under construction for launch later in the year to enhance the customer experience.
 
 
LDL Components supplies kitchen and bedroom manufacturers and retailers throughout the UK, specialising in quality products for the premium end of the market. 99% of the extensive range is held in stock with next day delivery as standard.

LDL Components Ltd, the sole UK agent and distributor for PEKA, now offers the brand new PEKA Basik range from the Swiss manufacturer of high quality wirework storage solutions.
 
Designed to offer the famous PEKA combination of craftsmanship and ingenious design at an extremely competitive price, the first two products in the range are the PEKA Basik Magic Corner and the Tall Larder.

Both feature PEKA ClickFixx system which dramatically cuts assembly time, integrated Soft Close and smart silver baskets with fully co-ordinating frame and runner.
 
The larder unit has a telescope frame to fit cabinet heights from 1665 – 2100mm and is available in 300mm and 400mm widths. The design of the pull-out system allows access to the entire cabinet from both sides and offers a clear view of contents on all levels. Shelves can be pulled out and replaced easily owing to the smooth and sturdy 3/4 extending running motion.
 
The Magic Corner solution, designed to make the very best use of available space in inaccessible corners, opens in one continuous motion and is available in left hand and right hand versions. With four baskets, it has an adjustable frame to suit door widths 450 to 600mm and 900 to 1000mm. 
 
LDL Managing Director Matthew Lord expects the new Basik range to broaden the appeal of the PEKA collection by making it accessible for all budgets.

LDL £1million.jpg

Or at least, in my humble opinion, more money than taste!

 I suppose if you have got a spare £1 million lying around and are into serious status symbols, not to mention bling, this is the kitchen for you.

 For all its impressive price tag, it doesn’t really look like somewhere you would be comfortable preparing food or even sitting around the less-than-cosy crystal island to eat it, but presumably people with that sort of disposable income don’t make their own meals and have a magnificent dining room elsewhere.

 One serious point – like all very dramatic kitchens, it relies on clutter-free surfaces for much of its effect so let’s hope there are some clever storage solutions behind all those sleek and shiny doors and drawers!

Imagine having to wear this strange space suit every day:


http://www.thekitchenthink.co.uk/planning-a-kitchen/planning-realistically-for-the-future

 

It’s actually not as crazy as it looks. This is the BLUM Age Explorer suit which simulates the permanent conditions that many older people face in their everyday lives as their vision, hearing and movement declines.

Of course, not everyone will face all of these difficulties but most of us will find that advancing age brings some restrictions with it.

The good news is that there are lots of clever ways to ensure everything in your kitchen cupboards remains easily accessible without any sort of struggle.  

Here’s a selection of age-defying solutions:

Possible the most useful and definitely the best-looking kitchen product

According to freelance interiors writer Hayley Gilbert, her top three most useful items in the kitchen start with her kettle, not just any kettle but the bright blue Kenwood jug kettle from the kMix range to be precise.

Hayley is commenting on news that The Royal Society has just named the fridge as the most significant invention in the history of food and drink:

Whilst not disputing this, Hayley then puts forward her own top three. We certainly agree with the stunning kettle at number one and possibly the slow cooker but some of us will have to agree to differ on number three – Marmite!

Meanwhile, don’t forget that as well as bright blue you can have your kettle in the following fabulous colours:

Raspberry, Almond, Peppercorn, Bright Green, Bright Orange, Bright Yellow, Bright Magenta.

Fabulous though these futuristic kitchens are, they sadly won’t fit unobtrusively into the average British home and will definitely be beyond the pocket of most.

Modified versions will no doubt filter down into mainstream kitchens in years to come but meanwhile fitted kitchens, albeit it minimalist and possibly handleless , are still the best solution for making the most of the average kitchen space.  

A new kitchen is a big expenditure for everyone and few people have the courage and budget to be truly ground-breaking in their approach. It is, however, easy to personalise a new or even existing kitchen with vibrant accessories from the kMix and Wesco ranges.
