The Magnetic Touch- Innovative products from Magnet Kitchens, 2014

We all have our dream kitchen. You know….the types that have been pinned innumerable times on Pinterest, seen in magazines and gawked at in stores. I have in my mind every single detail about ‘the’ kitchen that I would own one day. Since most us do tend to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.. err.. me being food blogger and all, I think it does matter how that little space of yours looks like. I would love a cozy lil kitchen with an aga and old copper pans and such, but in all honesty what i need is a nice modern kitchen- built in, with a small breakfast bar.

I walked into the Magnet Kitchen store in Wigmore street and I could very confidently say I found my dream kitchen (s). From dramatic ones with stylish islands and contemporary hob tops, to the perfect bachelor pad kitchenette, Magnet Kitchens have it all. I couldn’t help but wish I was actually in there to pick out a new kitchen design for our home. Sadly, that will have to wait for a few more years and in the mean time I’d just have to take in Magnets new kitchen range which I must say are really impressive. 

Intergra Astral Grey- a smooth, uncluttered design which is both trendy and neutral enough to be paired with all sorts of different colours

Integra Fantasy Oak- a brown hued wonder which just makes you feel like you are in a summer cabin. The textured horizontal lines add to the refreshing design.

Leighton Grey for that country kitchen feel with matt grey finish and solid wood worktops.

Astral Grey with its smart glossy grey surfaces make it look very bachelor-pad-like I feel. Nevertheless, a beautifully put together colour combination can make it look simply fabulous.

What I’d like to however talk about are the new product innovations that Magnet has introduced. Their desire to keep designs fresh and more appealing inspires them to come up with new ideas regularly- ideas that you wont see anywhere else. The Coffee Unit, Illusion Sink and Sound Bar are 3 innovations that have been recently introduced, and I must say, they are a class apart. I was lucky enough to check out some of these products and here is my take on them.

Illusion sink

The illusion sink is perhaps the coolest kitchen feature I’ve ever seen. As the name suggests, its a sink you can see one minute, but not the next. When you install a sink in your kitchen, you’d like it to be fairly big right? But when the sink is not in use, the space is completely wasted. In such situations, the illusion sink comes in handy. When not in use, simply push down the tap and slide over a cover to create extra worktop space. The cover comes in the exact same colour as your work top (of course you can select your own too) and does look pretty neat when the cover is pulled over.

Sound bar

The slim and stylish sound bar system makes working in the kitchen a bit more fun. Making your favourite seafood paella while jiving to some Spanish salsa music is something we all would like to do in the kitchen…that too without having to worry about the wine spilling over your ipod or laptop. The sound bar blends seamlessly into the wall cabinets and if you link it to any device with Bluetooth capability you wont even know its there..well, until you hear it.

“Magnet provides a flexible full circle service that includes a smart design service, a 15 year cabinet guarantee, free home survey and the unique Smart Care service. The Sound Bar System is a system that can not only be incorporated into Astral Grey kitchen, it can also be fitted with many other Magnet kitchens.”
