There are many compromises that couples have to make when setting up home together, blending their different styles and tastes into the most important room in the house – the kitchen, is often the most problematic. My niece and her partner are busy renovating their new home and their kitchen is the next big project. I had assumed that they would both want to have a very contemporary kitchen but my niece favours a more traditional kitchen style, while her partner wants all out minimalist modern! It is going to be their first big style compromise on the house renovation project.
So I have suggested that they come into the Beau-Port showrooms and ‘test drive’ some of our contemporary and traditional style kitchens. It is great to have so many real life size kitchens in the showroom and in a setting that actually makes them feel as though they are within a home. They can sit in the various kitchens, relax and have a cup of coffee while Mark guides them through the various options that will satisfy both their style requirements.
Our beautiful Charleston Grey Shaker kitchen, handmade by craftsmen in Britain might be an option, satisfying my niece’s desire for something more traditional, yet with its coloured glass splashbacks, Caesarstone worktops and clean oak framed island, it also has a contemporary look that will appeal to her partner. With the addition of one of our Mercury Range Cookers the blend of traditional and the contemporary is complete.
However, once my niece sees our Rotpunkt Contemporary German style kitchens in our showroom, she may be drawn more to that style and I think she will like both the Dia White High Gloss and the Alpine and Lucido kitchen styles, which would all look great in the space they have available in their new home.
Mark is looking forward to helping and guiding my niece and partner towards making the best choices to satisfy their individual tastes. He is an expert at bringing a blend of styles together that really work. Mark has decades of experience when helping couples with diverse taste to create a kitchen that they will both love, enjoy and will work for them and a growing family.
