More than just kitchens

The Handleless Kitchen
June 10th, 2019
Something I find we’re selling a lot of lately is handleless kitchens. They have been around for a while now, but it seems they are more popular than ever. There are so many positives to a kitchen wi...
Sharing the load
May 15th, 2019

An interesting lesson learnt
March 7th, 2019
