Stylish kitchen showroom opens in Perth
Opening a new kitchen showroom in these tough times may be seen as madness but for quality kitchen designer Kitchens Internationa,l this is all part of an expansion programme with two new showrooms opened in Scotland in two years.
With six showrooms across Scotland the company offers customers an opportunity to get designer kitchens from locations from Aberdeen to Glasgow. This new design studio in Perth has stunning displays of Callerton and Leicht kitchens and was opened recently by celebrity chef Nick Nairn at a VIP day.
Nick gave a hands on series of demonstrations, tips and techniques to a VIP audience throughout the day. With some of the latest British and German kitchens on display, along with hi-tech appliances, Nick and his team from the Nick Nairn Cookschool showed how KI kitchens work in the home and the benefits of such sleek and elegant designs.
The new showroom at 16-18 Princes St, Perth is 140 sq metres and contains three kitchen displays. This includes a sleek high gloss white and antricite grey Paneel 40/Classic FS/Avance Leicht kitchen, a contemporary Sand Grey and Stone Oak Leicht kitchen and a more traditional Callerton Barbican Walnut and Antique White kitchen.
There is also be a huge range of high tech appliances from Siemens, Vzug, Wolf and SubZero with a full range of steam ovens, wine storage, warming drawers, induction and teppan yaki hobs. There is a good choice of worktops including Corian, granite and Silestone with new taps and sinks from American manufacturer Kohler.
The showroom shows the latest in handleless kitchens, LED low energy lighting, islands, smart storage options, cooking/dining configurations and multi media units. Most items are working displays so customers can get a real feel for the practicalities of KI kitchens.
"In these tough times it is hard for a business to expand but at KI we are passionate about offering as many people as possible across Scotland and beyond access to our aspirational kitchens and exceptional design service," explains Paul O'Brien, Business Development Director of Kitchens International. "Perth and Tayside are a key area for us and this new showroom will allow us to service central Scotland and the north from a beautiful showroom.
"With highly competitive prices, a huge portfolio of products, great design service, experienced installers and a meticulous aftercare team we believe we are offering the people of Perth something unique in kitchens."
Speaking at the launch event, chef Nick Nairn said: "Kitchens International has pioneered the quality kitchen market in Scotland and this new showroom shows the success of its team in being able to expand and gives confidence to the Scottish interiors market.
"My team and I love using the KI kitchens as they are practical, functional and look fantastic and make cooking great fun!"
