Kitchen Trends to Look Out for Heading in to 2017

The kitchen is undoubtedly the heart of the home, whether you are cooking or socialising the kitchen tends to be the place to be, as the song goes “you’ll always find me in the kitchen and parties”. The kitchen needs to be functional, accessible but also stylish and appealing. A good looking kitchen goes a long way which is why, here at Just Doors, we have complied a list of kitchen design trends to look out for in 2017 to ensure you are ahead in the design stakes and that your kitchen is the best it can be.
1. Hidden Appliances – Hidden appliances are a great way to create the look of having more space whilst also making the most of the space you have available. Disguising your appliances in your cabinetry means you can maintain a clean and consistent look throughout your kitchen by being able to disguise appliances such as refrigerators, dish washers and even smaller appliances such as microwaves and coffee makers.

2. Wood Panelling - This traditional look is very much coming back in to fashion and provides a warm and cosy feeling to any kitchen. If you like the thought of wood panelling but would prefer a more modern look then using white wood panelling, known as shiplap, creates a clean and contemporary feel.

3. Smart Appliances – When your busy working away in the kitchen it can be hard to do other things such as answer the phone but now, thanks to smart appliances, you will be able to make and receive calls from a voice activated WiFi screen that is embedded in to your fridge or you can even look up a recipe on Google, the world is at your fingertips (fridge).

4. Faucets with Sensors – This includes lights that turn on once we enter the room and then automatically turn off once they stop detecting movement which is ideal for keeping electricity bills down if you tend to find yourself accidentally leaving lights on. Other items include a meat thermometer that will notify your smart phone once the meat has reached the desired temperature meaning that you can sit back and relax without having to check all the time to see if the meat is fully cooked. In 2017 and in years to come we will see many more of these automation trends enter the home and in a few years time we could be running our homes from our phones.

5. Tuxedo Kitchen Cabinets – Mixing up your kitchen’s colour theme with tuxedo cabinets provides you with a very modern and stylish kitchen, whether you choose to go for the literal interpretation of the tuxedo theme and go for black and white or if you decide to use more contemporary colours such as navy blue and soft grey, check out our range of kitchen doors.

The kitchen is no longer just for cooking, it is a place for entertaining, relaxing, dining and working in meaning it is important that you are comfortable in your surroundings which we are sure you will be if you follow our style tips to ensure you have a forward thinking kitchen design ready for the year ahead.

Christmas Food Traditions Around The World

The kitchen is the most important room in the house over the Christmas period as many delicious dishes are created to help us celebrate the festive season. There are many variations of the Christmas dinner eaten around the world so we thought we would take a closer look at what other countries will be tucking in to this Christmas.

The UK – A traditional turkey roast is the most popular type of Christmas dinner eaten in the UK although some people do tend to opt for other types of poultry such as pheasant or goose all of which is served with all the trimmings, Yorkshire puddings and pigs in blankets. For dessert, it is traditional to serve Christmas pudding but there are other options such as trifle, Christmas cake or chocolate logs.

France – The main Christmas meal in France is called Réveillon and is typically enjoyed late on Christmas Eve or early Christmas morning which is usually when people have returned from the Midnight church services. The dish usually comprises of roast turkey with chestnuts or roast goose accompanied by oysters, foie gras, lobster, venison and a variety of cheeses and as a dessert a chocolate log cake is usually served which is called a bûche de Noël. In some parts of France there is a celebration where 13 desserts are eaten, these desserts are made from fruits, nuts and pastries and the number 13 is to represent Jesus and his 12 apostles.

Germany – In Germany the usual Christmas dish is Goose and cabbage (some people swap goose for carp) and as a dessert a fruited yeast bread called stollen is enjoyed. German tradition says that those who don’t eat well on Christmas Eve will be haunted by demons.

Italy – In Italy meat and sometimes dairy is completely avoided on Christmas eve and instead Italian families enjoy The Feast of Seven Fishes which comprises of seven fish based dishes and after this has been consumed people then attend the Midnight mass service. Once they have returned from mass they will then enjoy a slice of Italian Christmas cake called Pannettone and a cup of hot chocolate.

Japan – Christmas has only been celebrated in Japan for the last few decades and isn’t acknowledged as a religious holiday and is seen more as a time to spread happiness. Christmas Eve is celebrated more than actual Christmas day and is often seen as a romantic day quite like Valentines day. The preferred meal for Christmas Eve is fried chicken which means that Christmas is the busiest day of the year for KFC as it often sees people queueing up outside the doors and a lot of people place orders in advance to avoid disappointment.

Slovakia – Fish is the most popular meat served for Christmas dinner in Slovakia and tends to be mostly carp. A lot of families will buy the fish alive and keep it in the bath until Christmas Eve when it will be killed and gutted ready for Christmas dinner. The main Christmas feast comprises of 12 dishes which symbolises the number of Jesus’ disciples.

Iceland – On the 23rd December Icelands major saint died on this day and it is tradition that a simple meal of boiled potatoes and fermented skate is eaten, it is very common that people eat out at restaurants on this day due to them not wanting their house smelling of the skate which can be very pungent. For Christmas dinner, it is not irregular to be served puffin or roasted reindeer but a leg of roast lamb is also a very popular choice.

Here at Just Doors we understand that no matter what you choose to eat on Christmas day it is important that you have a functional kitchen in which to prepare your meal and across all cultures it is apparent that spending the festive period with family and friends is extremely important and there is nothing better than gathering around the table to enjoy a delicious meal together. If you are looking to revamp your kitchen ready for the big day then make sure you take a look at the range of kitchen cupboard doors and kitchen handles we have available.christmas wreath

Cost Effective Furniture Refurbishment

It’s essential when refurbishing a property, to remember that you are refurbishing the property for paying tenants - not yourself. Fixtures, themes and decorating should focus on creating a clean, neutral clutter free environment. It’s also vital to ensure that key elements such as repairing any structural or physical defects are built into a refurbishment plan. Broken, scuffed and damaged items should either be replaced or refurbished as part of this plan.

Whilst inbuilt wardrobes are a huge draw in many properties, over the years they can become worn down and scuffed. Just Doors offer a wide range of replacement wardrobe doors which are ideal for built in wardrobes and free standing wardrobes in living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms throughout your property.

Refurbishment Viability

Whenever a landlord is looking to carry out a property refurbishment or makeover, it’s essential that a payback period for the work stands at around five years. For example, if a landlord was to spend £6000 - they should be confident that their monthly rental value could be raised by around £100 to hit a 5 year payback target. With property prices largely stagnant, it’s important to consider whether or not a large scale investment is worthwhile. During this period consider renewal and refurbishment as an alternative to larger scale work.

How to Update Your Kitchen on a Budget

Typically a new kitchen will add 4.6% to the value of your home, however if you are looking to either increase the value of your home, or simply update what has become a tired looking kitchen, you don't need to put yourself through the disruption and expense of installing an entire new kitchen.

Through tweaking and updating your existing kitchen, you can easily make huge improvements. Easy to update items include any of the below:

  • Kitchen Cupboard Doors
  • Kitchen Worktops
  • Kitchen Drawers
  • Kitchen Handles
  • Sink
  • Lighting

Replacing Kitchen Cupboard Doors

With fitted kitchen units costing thousands of pounds, it’s easy to see why so many people are now choosing to replace only their cupboard doors. The task of removing the old doors and fitting the new doors, usually takes less than a day and can be attempted at anyone with a reasonable level of DIY experience. For those who have no DIY experience, it won't cost the earth to hire a handyman or joiner to carry out this task - resulting in less disturbance and mess for you and your family.  

Whilst we are on the subject of costing the earth, nobody likes creating unnecessary waste and disposal costs. Just replacing your kitchen doors, not your full kitchen certainly plays its part in your efforts to help the environment.

The Advantages of MDF

mdMDF which stands for ‘Medium Density Fiberboard’ (we bet you didn’t know that), is a clear favourite when it comes to furniture and accessories. Today at Just Doors we are answering some of the common questions associated with this widely used material, including how MDF for wardrobe doors will benefit the home.

What is MDF made from?
Similar to particle board, MDF is an engineered wood composite, dense in feel and appearance yet in comparison to the aforementioned is much stronger. With the application of extremely high temperatures, both hard and softwood residuals are further broken down and packed together with binders such as wax and various resins. Force is used in order to press down the combination resulting in large sheets of MDF.

Are there different kinds of MDF?
Yes, there are typically varying kinds and they actually differ in colour. Moisture resistant is usually green whilst a fire retardant option will be red or blue.

Is MDF a cost effective solution?
This product is generally cheaper than the likes of plywood and other options available on the market. Whilst the cost will always depend upon the job in hand, the chances are you will pay less for this well respected option.

How easy is it to cut/shape this wood?
Whether you require straight edges or something more detailed, MDF offers the perfect consistency when it comes to shaping and because it is smooth throughout, using a jigsaw, scroll or band saw will be easy.

Does this wood have a particular use?
As mentioned above, MDF is a popular alternative to other hardwood as it provides a cost effective solution and one that’s easy to work with. Over time, schools have really seen its benefits when it comes to design technology lessons due to the flexibility offered.

Can I paint MDF?
Quite simply, yes. The smooth texture means rough edges are nowhere in sight with voids and splinters a non entity. You won’t find any knots meaning sandpaper is not a requirement. Primer is an absolute must with a quality oil-based option highly recommended. Avoid aerosol primers as it will just soak in having no effect and leaving you without the correct base for which to paint. Get this right and you can choose any colour you wish. Have a look at some great tips for painting MDF - these should help you on your way.

Are MDF Wardrobe Doors a decent option?
Created to stand the test of time, this style of wardrobe door is ideal to prime and paint in the colours of your choice. Fitting neatly in with existing wardrobes, the strength is apparent and quality clearly visible. Easy to shape, simple styles such as plain, fielded and shaker offer a contemporary feel whilst the tongue and groove leans towards a traditional finish.

On the whole, MDF offers a great solution when it comes to furniture and additions such as wardrobe doors. The versatility of this material means it can be cut to shape easily and painted to suit.

3 Ways to Hang a Christmas Wreath on Your Front Door without Making a Hole!

christmas wreath

The festive season is upon us and here at Just Doors we have compiled a post describing the top three ways to hang a Christmas wreath without the need to put a hole in your door!

Without further ado let’s delve into the realms of possibility.

1. Command Hooks

If you are unaware of Command hooks, they WILL change your life (or at least the way you decorate for the Christmas holidays)! These clever little objects aren't just for Christmas however. They are an absolute must have for any home with the ability to be incorporated into regular interior décor projects. The idea behind these hooks lies within strips that attach to flat surfaces causing no damage when pulled away. Attaching to the strips they can be stuck to the desired surface.

Command hooks come in varying shapes and sizes and when choosing these you need be mindful of what they will be used to hang, and where they will be placed. When it comes to your Christmas Wreath the hook is required to be strong in order to take weight into consideration and counteract varying elements of the weather.

The fact command hooks come off surfaces easily is the icing on the cake (but remember to read the instructions as there are some precautions to take)!

2. Over the Door Wreath Hanger

Over the Door Wreath Hangers have grown in popularity with many outlets stocking variations on style and colour. Simply place the hook part of the hanger at the top of the door and then the long strip section hangs down towards the front. The wreath will sit nicely from here.

Part of the hanger will be visible yet your door has escaped the wrath of the nail! Besides, it’s nothing some tinsel or gyp won’t solve.

3. Ribbon

Another great way to hang your Christmas wreath without ruining your front door is by using ribbon. Use any type of decorative ribbon that matches your wreath (preferably at least 3-4 inches wide). Place the wreath in the middle of the ribbon so that it hangs exactly where you want it to on the door. Take the two ends of ribbon towards the top of the door and overlap them so they both come together in the same spot. Finally take a thumbtack and tack the ends of the ribbon into the top of the door, if you get the tack all the way into the top, the door should still close properly. Make sure however the tack is sturdy enough to hold the wreath securely.

By using this method no holes will be in the front of your door, merely just a tiny blemish on the top frame that won’t be seen. Remember don't use this method if your door is anything but wooden!

So there you have it! The three top ways of hanging a Christmas wreath without causing any damage to your door. Our favourite has to be the command hook as it can be used at any time of the year across a whole host of interior projects. What could be better?
