Dales-Dallas-Kitchen02County Kildare almost directly in the heart of Ireland boasts of some of the most beautiful landscape in Ireland. Whether you are an outdoor enthusiast or one who likes fine dining you will find a place suitable for everyone in this beautiful county.

Fitted Kitchens for Kildare Homes

Some of the finest homes in the country can be found in Kildare and in these fine homes you will find some of the most elegant kitchens from decades past to the most modern of the day. Leinster Woodcraft have customized  fitted kitchens for over the last quarter of a century and you can visit their factory and showroom just outside of Portlaoise and view their select range.

Fitted Kitchens designed for Kildare Homes.

When choosing a kitchen for your existing home or new home it’s very important to talk to a professional company that will take your ideas and in conjunction with yourself point out good and bad points in relation to design and style. You are not looking for someone to agree with every thing you come up with but to make constructive criticism should the design or style require it. 

Fitted Kitchen Designs and Styles.

One very important decission when selecting a kitchen in terms of design is to get the work triangle right. This means that you have to achieved the best possible place to put the three main items in your kitchen, and they are the cooker, the fridge and the washing area. Think about this there is no point in having the cooker in one end and the sink and fridge at the opposite end, it simply takes to much walking around and not practical at all.

Fitted Kitchens and Wood.

The wood used to manufacture a kitchen are the following;

  • Walnut
  • Maple
  • Oak
  • Beech
  • Ash
  • Cherry
  • Pippy Oak

Whatever you choose make sure its a custom made kitchen not a cheap falt pack that you will have to replace in a few years because the doors keep coming away from the carcas.

You have many choices out there to choose from, so what criteria do you choose to give you the best chance of choosing a good company to carryout the work in probably the most important room in you home. Today kitchens are designed to be functional but also decorative because unlike years ago where the kitchen was down in the basement or in the back somewhere, no today it is part of the dining are or the reception area as most new builds are prone to have open plan areas.

The criteria I advise people to check are:

  • How long has the kitchen company been around.
  • Who owns the kitchen company.
  • Can you visit the showrooms and see the kitchens being made.
  • Make sure that the company you use are not just those that deal in flat pack kitchens only.
  • Are they in the same county or country.
  • Are they quick to answer the phone.
  • Do they have a good online presence like a website.
  • Are they competent.

Kitchen companies like Leinster Woodcraft that have been around for a quarter of a century are well worth talkin to.

Kitchen Tips and Ideas

 

Several different methods are available from Leinster Woodcraft for those of you who would like to create a new look in your kitchen and at great discounts for 2009.  You can create the entire room over by gutting it and starting completely new from the appliances to the flooring to the wallpaper to the kitchen sink.  You can take the easy route and simply change a few of the essentials like kitchen towels, kitchen faucets, the lighting, the toaster, canister set, and kitchen clock.  Alternatively, you can upgrade many of the features of your custom made kitchen to create a brand new kitchen look without gutting the room.

 

Upgrading Your Kitchen

 

It is very important to plan your kitchen before you go out and buy something on impulse. Custom Oak Kitchens have been very popular for many decades and will remain so for many decades to come. There are a range of Oaks to choose from like Pippy Oak, American Oak, Irish Oak and White Oak and by electing to go with a custom kitchen you won’t be disappointed.

 

Upgrading your kitchen without gutting it is a good choice for many reasons including:

  • It is less expensive than redoing the entire room from floor to ceiling and with the kitchen discounts available its very affordable.

  • It creates a bigger change and a newer look than simply replacing a few of the non-fixed items. 

  • It is a lot of fun to do and all the family can get involve.

  • It incresase the value of your kitchen to a great degree.

Kitchen Themes;

 

The first thing that you need to do when creating a brand new custom made kitchen look is to select a theme.  Your theme can be quite specific or general in nature.  You can select a theme that leans toward a particular feel such as contemporary, southwestern, French Provincial, or country, for example.  Your theme can simply encompass a particular subject matter including flowers, fruits, animals, ivy, birds, or whatever it is that you have a preference for.

 

Custom Tableware:

 Once you select your theme, compose a list of all of the items that you want to replace.  Although it is easier to compose the list by grouping similar items together, you can use any system that works for you.  You can break the list down into two separate categories- functional and decorative.  Examples of the items that you will find in both lists are included below.  Some of the items can actually be placed in both categories.  Therefore, the selected list might not be the one that you would personally list them on.  However, if the visual appeal of the particular item outweighs its functionality for me, I selected the decorative list for it.

Custom Made Kitchen Look Fantastic

It isn’t necessary to change all of the items on the above lists to create your new kitchen look.  However, the more items that you change, the more unique the look will appear to you and to everyone who frequents your home.  In fact, the more prominent the item is in your kitchen, the more likely it is that changing it will make a lasting difference.

 Upgrading the hardware for your kitchen cabinets will give them a brighter appearance in most instances.  Over time, the hardware tends to lose its shine and luster.  While you are changing the hardware, it is an excellent time to also upgrade the cabinet doors by giving them a thorough cleaning and a facelift with a new stain.

 It is relatively easy to coordinate all of your new items with the same theme since so many stores and online sites sell kitchen items.  It isn’t necessary to do all of your shopping at the same location either, although it probably will make it easier.  In fact, take the time to shop around and see what is available before actually making your purchases.  Next, begin to make your purchases attempting to shop for similar items at the same time so that you can match colors and patterns more readily.

Leinster Woodcraft  listen to your suggestions and heed your requirements and help to satisfy those needs at a realistic cost.

Today a totally different scene, everywhere you go throughout the Island of Ireland, the countryside is dotted with new homes, a great sign of our affluence over the last decade. Within the walls of these beautiful designed houses is the “heart” of the home, referred to as the kitchen.

Kitchen styles vary from areas of the world but in Ireland we tend to stick to the traditional kitchens like Oak, Maple, Walnut and of course ash kitchens are very popular nowadays. Leinster Woodcraft are very proud to have been chosen in many cases to supply these modern masterpiece kitchens of various designs, that can be seen in our showrooms.

The styles available are the single galley kitchen, the double galley kitchen, the L-shaped kitchen, the U-shaped kitchen and all of these combined with an island unit give the chef or cook a wonderful area to perform his or her duties.

You can buy cheap kitchens from many sources, and in some cases when you use these for a few years, the doors start sagging and the hinges come away from the main frame – you ask yourself why didn’t I get a good quality one in the first place. The cost difference is not so great, so get yourself a good quality custom in-frame kitchen at the outset and you won’t be disappointed. Leinster Woodcraft are renowned for their quality and value and have been around for nearly three decades.
