Michel Roux Jr. officially opens first Roux Kitchen show home in Scotland
Michelin Star Chef Michel Roux Jr. has officially opened the first Scottish showhome to feature the Roux Kitchen collection designed, developed, and manufactured in partnership with British housebuilder kitchens manufacturer, Moores.
The new development by Allanwater homes, named Silver Glenn, has an array of 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes in Cuillin, Scotland.
The Roux Kitchen is a premium, bespoke offering for housebuilders, designed by Moores after industry insights revealed a growing need for a professional-inspired kitchen for luxury developments. It delivers incredible attention to detail, from clever storage ideas to high-end design detailing and offers a unique and striking solution for the premium end of the market.
"These kitchens take the learnings from a professional chef's kitchen,” said Michel Roux Jr. during the launch. “It's all about the attention to detail that ensures you have a truly beautiful kitchen design that is also practical. It has been my pleasure to come to this lovely part of Scotland today to perform this show home opening. I wish Allanwater Homes much success with this development."
Having introduced an exciting new specification at many of its developments earlier this year, including the Definitive range by Moores, Allanwater Homes managing director, David Stirling, is delighted to introduce the premium Roux Kitchen collection. He said: "The Roux kitchen we have in this property looks fantastic, and I am sure it will generate lots of interest - and hopefully sales, from prospective homehunters all over the area. It's a real coup for us to have these premium quality kitchens available to our buyers.
“We have worked hard to ensure our specification is of a really high standard, to further enhance our brand. We are delighted to be associated, through Moores, with one of the country's best chefs, with an enviable culinary heritage."
Julie Holliday, head of marketing for Moores, commented: "Michel has been fantastic to work with in developing this luxury range of kitchens. It really is the perfect collaboration with us both being passionate about creating perfection. We are confident that Scottish buyers, through choosing Allanwater Homes, will find that they tick all the boxes, with features such as premium soft close mechanisms, and stylish branded drawer liners. They are available in an extensive choice of design options, and in an array of tempting colours and finishes."
