‘There are lots of appliances in the island’: Lauren takes us through her brand new kitchen in Co Meath

FROM THE VERY beginning of her kitchen design journey, Lauren Harte knew exactly what she wanted.

“I had a very clear vision in my head,” says Lauren, who moved into her new home in Mornington, Co Meath with her boyfriend in April. 

“We were aware that there wasn’t much wall space, so we wanted to make use of the storage and get as much as we could into the island. We have a microwave, dishwasher, bin and sink all in the island.”

As well as maximising storage space, Lauren wanted her range cooker to be a focal point of the room. “My boyfriend is a chef, so cooking is a really big part of our lives. We wanted to make a feature of the range cooker with a really nice canopy.”

With her vision in mind, Lauren went to the Cash & Carry Kitchens showroom in Swords, Co Dublin.  

Cash & Carry was actually the first shop I went into and they had the exact kitchen that I had in mind. I didn’t go to any other shops – that was the kitchen for us.

Here she met with design consultant Alan Larkin, who helped bring her ideas to life. 

“One of the design issues Lauren had is that she went with a double sized Belfast sink,” says Alan. “She wanted the sink to be centred and with what she was fitting in on either side, it wasn’t possible unless we made some alterations to the units. That’s where the chopping boards came into it – they solved the problem.”

New York Homeowners: Stay Connected With Smart Kitchen Appliances

Every New York state homeowner wants to use technology to save money and make their home more energy efficient. But a smart home isn’t limited to using devices to control indoor temperature and turn on music. A smart home also has a smart kitchen.

There are many exciting and new appliances on the market to help get you organized and keep your kitchen running smoothly. Here are five appliances that can help you work smarter in the kitchen:

1. Interactive Refrigerators

Manufacturers such as Samsung have developed a smart refrigerator that’s interactive for the entire family. Not only will you be able to keep food cool at just the right temperature, you can keep track of expiry dates. You can also use the LCD screen on the outside of the fridge as a family calendar and message center and to watch the latest episode of your favorite television show.

Another benefit of a smart fridge is that it’s easy to plan meals. You can check the contents of your fridge no matter where you are using the smartphone app, stocking up on ingredients for a meal before you arrive home.

2. Smart Ovens

A smart oven will make your life much simpler. No more opening the oven door to check if chicken is roasted to the right temperature. The oven does it for you! Smart ovens are also great for baking, making it easy for you to control the temperature and achieve perfect results when making pastry and pies. Even better, you can use the smartphone app to control and regulate oven functions when you’re not at home. This means that you can preheat the oven when you’re on the way home, making it faster for you to get dinner on the table.

ordine_cooking_hub_02

Ordine by Adriano Design is an innovative cooking solution designed for the modern user. Optimized for small spaces, the design eliminates the need for a bulky traditional stove, clearing the way for more cabinet and counter space. The design features two hob units that are mounted on a central power hub on the wall. Elevated neatly out of the way, the user must simply grab one or both hobs off the wall and set the desired temperature to activate.

This 3-in-1 dishwasher design by Fotile hides your dishwasher and dryer elegantly by welding it to your stainless steel sink. The dishwasher has a larget fillet that facilitates accelerated rotation of water flow to improve the efficiency of wash cycles. Another great perk of it being fitted in your sink is that it reduces the hassle of cleaning inside the appliance. It also has a flat embedded ‘lid’ which makes it easy for you to keep your countertop clean while not sacrificing surface space. Apart from killing 99.99% of bacteria from the dishes, it also doubles up as a fruit and vegetable purifier. Using ultrasonic technology and a turbulent spray, it removes 90% of pesticide residue from your produce. This dishwasher claims to have no blind spots – 360-degree cleaning and drying!
