Refresh your kitchen at Victoria Plum

Posted by Adam Chard in Kitchen ideas | 4 years ago 6 min read

Using all our expertise in bathrooms, we'll show you just how easy it is to refresh your kitchen, using products from our very own kitchen range.

We’ve been in the bathroom business for nearly 20 years and, in that time, we’ve learnt a thing or two about what makes a great product. In many ways, your kitchen is similar to your bathroom. They're both highly functional spaces complete with plumbing and both require permanent fixtures like furniture and ceramics. Plus, they both need to withstand a lot of wear and tear, as well as the odd splash and spillage.

So, with all this in mind, we’ve now developed a comprehensive range of high quality kitchen products from a wide selection of trusted brand names.

To help get your kitchen cooking on gas, we’ll show you just how simple it is to breathe new life into your decor with the right mix of products.

Hot, hot taps

Using our own expertise in bathroom taps, we’ve selected a fabulous range of high quality kitchen taps, from brands including Grohe, Bristan and Schön. From simple designs that are easy to install and use, to more sophisticated models with handy features like pull out spray hoses, a new kitchen mixer tap will instantly bring sparkle to your décor.

How about instant boiling hot water whenever you need it? With a boiling water tap you can say goodbye to your kettle. We stock a fabulous range of designs from Tuscan, Grohe, Bristan, Schön and Redring. Each tap comes complete with a safety lock which helps prevent accidental scalding, providing peace of mind, especially where young children or elderly relatives share your home.

Be distinct with your sink

What’s the difference between a basin and a sink? It may sound like the first line of a joke but there is actually a subtle distinction between the two. A basin is the accepted term for something you use to wash in the bathroom, whilst a sink is something you use to rinse and wash things like food, pots, pans and crockery in the kitchen (because it's usually "sunk" into your worktop). Simple, eh?

We offer a comprehensive collection of kitchen sinks from big name brands such as Bristan, Rangemaster and Leisure. Available in a range of colours and materials, to suit contemporary and traditional style kitchens, you'll discover a variety of designs including those with smaller rinser sinks. If your current sink is looking tired or isn't up to task, why not simply fit a new one?

Easy waste disposal

Food waste often makes its way into our drains and can potentially cause blockages. A waste disposal unit is a great way to prevent this from happening. With a motorised blade, it makes short work of food waste, which can be collected and added to your recycling, rather than going straight into your general waste. Great news for environmentally-conscious households.

We stock a fabulous range from the wonderfully-named Bonecrusher who are leading specialists in waste disposal units. Each unit comes with Bio Shield technology, which eliminates odours and inhibits the growth of bacteria, whilst the Torque Master balanced grinding system reduces vibrations and increases the life of your product, with virtually no risk of blockages. They're quick and simple to install, whilst removable splash guards make cleaning and replacement easy.

Things are heating up

Need to keep your kitchen nice and snug (especially during those cold winter months)? We have a fabulous range of traditional and contemporary style radiators to choose from. With a selection of different styles, sizes and colours, you’re bound to find something that suits your décor and makes optimum use of space.

For the eco-conscious, underfloor heating is the next logical step. Allowing you to heat your kitchen separately to other rooms in your home, you can save both energy and money on your bills by using it only when you need it. Plus, with a smart thermostat like those from underfloor market leaders Warmup, it’ll learn the optimum times and temperatures for your home.

Wonderful walls

Of course, to really spruce things up, why not replace your kitchen tiles? We have a new and expanded selection, including on-trend Metro tiles and larger format Maxi Metro tiles. Check out our wood effect tile ranges and marble effect to add a more organic backdrop to your kitchen.

Just like in your bathroom, due to the steam and moisture from your cooking, you will need to choose specialist paint when refreshing your kitchen. Luckily, we have just the job with our Craig & Rose 1829 kitchen and bathroom paint range. Available in a selection of delectable colours, you can add a cheery burst of colour to your décor. Plus, with an anti-mould formula and a low level of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), it’s the perfect paint to use in your kitchen.

6. Fine flooring

Whilst genuine wood flooring simply isn't practical and stone can be cost-prohibitive, there is an easy way to create beautiful floors in your kitchen. Our range of vinyl and laminate kitchen flooring, from market-leading brands such as Aqua Step, Faus, Krono Xonic, Malmo and Multipanel, offers a hardwearing and hygienic surface, available in a huge selection of colours, patterns and designs.

Faus Parquet Stone flooring produces an authentic wood effect look that is easy both moisture-resistant and easy to maintain
