More people than ever are opting for open plan homes, knocking down walls and merge the kitchen with the rest of the home. It’s all about making the most of the space we have, using every square foot, that could be gaining space for casual impromptu entertaining, or creating space for children to play, while still having the kitchen at the heart of the home.
Most new builds embrace open plan space, but it can be challenging to incorporate this layout into older homes. Here are some tips:
A kitchen island is a must, they are multifunctional, defining the kitchen area from the sitting or dining area, offering a casual eating setting, while also provide a huge amount of worktop and storage space. Often kitchen islands with seating are incorporated in place of a dining room table completely.
Space permitting a separate utility room, or even small, allocated space – for example some previously unused understairs cupboard or garden room, is a great opportunity for housing appliances, to take them away from open plan living areas while also freeing up space. Really worth considering to remove noise of appliances like the washing machine and tumble dryer.
Continuing the same colour and style throughout will help join rooms in to one large open plan space. Go large, make it feel bigger, and help the home flow naturally. Carefully used flooring, lighting and furniture can also be used to create varying zones within your large open plan area.
With open plan space everything is in sight, keep things simple and clutter free. Invest in storage solutions. Open plan living is all about making space work simply and effortlessly.

Contemporary kitchens are taking the 2020 trend. We take a moment to look at timeless kitchens and share our tips on how to make it work for your space and requirements. Be it a Cotswold Farmhouse or a new build, by following our tips, you can make the space become timeless and suit the style of the house. Creating a timeless kitchen…
Shaker cabinetry is a simple design of craftsmanship, providing clean lines, mixed with insert panels – this identifies the shaker style cabinetry. Shaker style doors can work on a broad range of homes due to the diversity and can suit a traditional kitchen through to a modern shaker style. With our shaker collection, we have a wide pallet of colours to choose from in gloss and matt finishes.
For your kitchen to remain timeless, we recommend using neutral colours. Neutral colours will help the kitchen stand the test of time. If you want to add colour to your kitchen, choose to add colour splash such as on the splashback/tiles or with the kitchen appliances such as your kettle and toaster. You can add elements of colour on the smaller details that can then be changed easily and won’t mean you’ll have to change the whole kitchen.
If you want your kitchen to last, then be sure to invest in high quality products. We have spent many years researching kitchens and are pleased to offer only the best quality. Our kitchens last!
Each and every one of our kitchens receive the same level of attention to detail. Our personal care also makes Pittville unique.
Integrated goods such as washing machine, fridge/freezer and dishwasher are a good idea. Dated appliances can detract from the kitchen finish. Hidden behind the door, they can’t give away the age! That said, high-spec items which are unlikely to date so easily. For example, a sleek American-style fridge, or iconic appliances such as a range cooker, can be left on display. For smaller appliances, think about creating an appliance hub, where microwaves, toasters and the like can be hidden away from view.
The best thing to do, is to visit our showroom. Speak to our designers and go through your kitchens and visions. Our showroom is open Monday-Saturday on Prestbury Road. Start creating your timeless kitchen with Pittville today.

A focus on Masterclass kitchens… For some, the start of a new year can be a bit sluggish, but here at Pittville we are very excited to be launching two new kitchen displays. One will present our new, contemporary Italian brand ‘Doimo’ (blog coming soon…!) and the second will showcase our UK made collection ‘Masterclass’.
In recent years Pittville has become known for contemporary, handle-less kitchens, but following a recent run of Masterclass projects, it is time to put the spotlight on their beautiful range of designs.
Firstly, it should be highlighted that Masterclass Kitchens are made in the UK – just outside Cardiff to be precise. Having visited their factory, their sense of pride to manufacture in the UK is very apparent but this also comes at a time when clients are keen to ‘buy British’ and the idea of a locally made product has a huge appeal.
When it comes to the design, the style they are best known for is the classic, shaker. This timeless look is still a favourite with clients and can easily sit within a traditional or contemporary home. This is certainly the style we have had a little flurry of recently. However they also offer a very smart collection of modern, flat slab kitchens. All-in-all there are 17 door designs to chose from and over 40 colour finishes – ranging from elegant neutrals through to some bold and dramatic options.
Whichever door design you go for, one particularly elegant detail which sets them apart from their competition, is that their cabinet interiors can come in either oak or walnut effect – which definitely gives a wow factor when opening your drawers and cupboards. Although if this isn’t for you, there are 9 other cabinet colours to chose from.
And it doesn’t stop there. Masterclass have also designed a thoughtful and clever range of storage solutions which can be tailored to accommodate any lifestyle. Some particular favourites are the corner larder and bespoke pantry – both customised to suit each individual client – and the cocktail cabinet, which is a real showpiece. Very James Bond and aptly named ‘The Connery’!
A further design characteristic which is proving very popular is Masterclass’ freestanding island. Giving the appearance of a freestanding piece of furniture, this style of island has a much more gentle appearance than the traditional islands which sit directly on the floor. And yes, you can indeed build appliances into the island – the secret is that the electrics are hidden in the legs.
So as much as we enjoy designing kitchens with a contemporary, neutral, handle-less look, we also have a soft spot for this more classic style and little splash of colour… and we are very much looking forward to showing off our gorgeous new display. Watch this space for photographs!
And if you are considering a shaker kitchen for your home and are still in any doubt about whether a Masterclass kitchen is for you, their website has a fabulous selection of images and a huge database of ‘Real Kitchens’ to show you all the possible design combinations! That’s our focus on Masterclass, convinced? Come and meet us!
If you have ever renovated your kitchen or perhaps you are currently looking into it, chances are you will have come across Silestone as a worktop option. But did you know that Silestone has two gorgeous sister products, Dekton and Sensa? Well now you do!
As the leader in worktops for 25 years, Silestone has firmly established itself as a favourite choice because of its outstanding resistance and durability but also its beautiful selection of colour options. However Dekton and Sensa go one step further in all those areas. So what are the differences and which one would best suit your kitchen?!
Let’s start with the composition…
Silestone is made from 94% quartz plus some colour pigment and resin.
Dekton is made from a mix of up to 20 natural minerals which are compacted together with heat and under a weight which is comparable to 2 and a half Eiffel Towers!
Sensa is a natural granite surface which is treated to provide a much more thorough and robust seal than standard granite worktop.
Alongside a potential preference for one of those surface qualities, the next important consideration will be durability. What demands will your lifestyle have of your worktop.
To begin with, each of the three surfaces are stain resistant, even when it comes to tough stains like wine or coffee. They also have a high scratch resistance, although we would always recommend using a chopping board, even if just to protect your knives and utensils.
So when comparing the products, one of the key features which Dekton offers as an appealing upgrade to Silestone is that it is heat resistant. Meaning you can put hot pans directly on the worktop without causing any damage. So unlike most worktop options on the market, if you have Dekton, no worktop protectors are needed. Which could be a helpful feature when it comes to children or teenagers cooking in the kitchen!
A further benefit of Dekton over Silestone is that the completely natural makeup means it is chemical resistant. For example, if you spill oven cleaner on your worktop, there is no need to worry about causing any damage, because you won’t.
With regards to Sensa, if you have a preference for granite in your kitchen, the protective sealant does not need reapplying and will not wear down over time. Many granite worktops are treated on site and the sealer is simply wiped on by hand and therefore needs reapplying. However the production process for Sensa means it is integrated into the material, providing a long term treatment.
However, Silestone should not be forgotten when comparing the products. One particularly elegant detail in a kitchen is to have your sink in a matching material to your worktop and with Silestone you can do just that.
And as for cleaning, the recommended product for each of these surfaces is Cif Actifizz – so no fancy products required!
When it comes to our favourite element, the design, there are gorgeous options in each collection to suit any kitchen style. Silestone and Dekton both have over 60 colours to chose from, whereas Sensa only has nine – but they are 9 stunning options!
Each collection also has a variety of finishes available, so whether you prefer a matt, suede effect worktop or a glossy, polished one then there will be something for you to fall in love with.
It is worth noting that any patterns or markings which form the design on Silestone and Sensa, will run all the way through the thickness of the worktop. However, the designs for Dekton are printed onto the surface and so the patterns will not be visible on the edges or within any drainer grooves. An edging strip in the same material can be added but there will be no pattern match.
That being said, the palette of finish colours and markings available within the Dekton range offers an elegant upgrade from the available designs within the Silestone range.
And if you are looking for a worktop which offers something more dramatic, then Sensa is likely to be the one for you.
So after carefully selecting your cabinet doors, your handles and your appliances, you now have three fabulous worktop options to chose from when adding the finishing touch to your beautiful kitchen.
