Easylife Kitchens’ showrooms across South Africa offer a wide range of kitchen, bathroom and living space designs, finishes and accessories. The company offers a two-year guarantee on materials and workmanship.
We feel a kitchen should be custom designed to accommodate the owner’s lifestyle, but at the same time the space must be functional. A well-designed and installed kitchen is an investment in your property, and it is important to consider the quality and durability not only of the visual elements but the internal fittings, like hinges and runners, as well. Owners often overlook these elements and this has a significant impact on the functioning of the kitchen space in the long run.
There are some interesting developments to introduce technology into the kitchen, including voice-operated opening and closing systems that are in the testing phase. For smaller spaces, there is a trend towards “closing off” the kitchen after use with sliding pocket door systems to keep the open plan living area neat and tidy.
The variety of finishes that are becoming available for kitchens is amazing. One can now choose from wood grains in different textures, solid colour in gloss and matt finishes as well as concrete and marble effects. Even metallic-type finishes that mimic a distressed rust effect are available. When one combines a few different finishes in the kitchen, the overall impact is truly spectacular.
