Child-Proofing Your Kitchen

If you’re planning to start a family or possibly you’re welcoming grandchildren soon then you’ll want your kitchen to be child-proof as possible. The kitchen can be a dangerous place for children, so here are our recommendations for taking the extra steps to keep it as safe as possible for youngsters. This is the Paul Barry KBB guide to child-proofing your kitchen.

The simplest step is adding a baby-gate on to the entrance of the kitchen. We recommend buying a gate that’s higher than you think. Even the smallest of babies will surprise you with their impressive climbing skills.

Adding locks to your cabinets and drawers is a must to prevent babies and children from accessing dangerous items. Additionally, you can dedicate a low drawer or under-cabinet to the children and fill it with plastic bowls, cups, plates and some of their favourite snack items.

This may deter them wanting to explore the other cabinets filled with potentially dangerous items and they have everything they need at a safe operating level. Not only is this child-proofing your kitchen, but it is future proofing it too.

The sharper it is, the higher it should be. Inside your lower cabinets, try to keep as few sharp or edgy objects as far away as possible. This includes objects that can easily break into shreds too such as glassware and crockery. Relocate all your sharp knives, small appliances and other items to spaces out of reach and high up places.

Lowering your countertops to a child-friendly height is a consideration for your next kitchen renovation. By having a kitchen surface well within your child’s reach, they can safely prepare their own food without stretching or standing on other furniture which makes them more accident prone.

A lower worktop means alternative risks for children. A great way of child-proofing your kitchen is to round off your worktop surface to prevent any bumped heads.

A new countertop can also mean a more hygienic space as splatters, drops and spillages inevitably happen when kids are in the kitchen. By installing worktops like Quartz or Corian mean they’re virtually indestructible, extremely easy to clean, maintain and hygienic.

Kitchens have to work for all the family and they have to be stylish as well as functional. For your next family kitchen, it needs to be Paul Barry KBB. We specialise in beautiful kitchens that are exquisitely designed and made with the finest materials regardless of space or budget.

Why Consider Bathroom Renovation?

We use our home’s bathroom multiple times per day so don’t you think its time we reclaimed the space to create something to suit our lifestyles? More than ever before, the 21st-century bathroom offers a luxurious retreat from our hectic lives.

Although renovating your bathroom is a costly and time-consuming task, it has many upsides that outweigh the inconveniences a refit can cause. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider a bathroom renovation for your next project:

Firstly, a bathroom renovation can finally bring your once-fashionable bathroom up to your standards to create something that truly matches your style. In some cases, discreet modifications can give the bathroom an impactful upgrade but for those bathrooms that need some TLC after years of wear and tear, its time to create something that truly suits you.

An entire bathroom renovation can turn your tired and worn bathroom into a beautiful living space for you and your family to relax and indulge. We pride ourselves on our unique personalised designs and installations that match the needs and expectations of a modern family.

With a bathroom renovation comes an overall increase to your property’s value, another huge benefit of overhauling your bathroom. If you’re looking to sell your property, we recommend bathroom renovation to add approximately £3500 to £4000 on the value of your property.

Even if you’re not thinking about selling your property at the moment but it is something you know you’ll be considering in the future, a new modern bathroom is definitely a step in the right direction. A tidy, clean and functional bathroom is extremely appealing to potential buyers and can make selling your house much easier.

When you’re looking to improve your bathroom, we often consider the advance in style and functionality, but a bathroom renovation allows us to improve our bathroom’s energy and water usage. By progressing the new bathroom’s arrangement, technology and functionality with small changes it can be an energy-saving space.

For example, opting for a dual flush mechanism on your toilets, showers and tap regulators to ensure you don’t use too much water. There are also modern heated towel rails which allow you to control heat for different times of the day.

Bathroom renovation allows you to claim a space that suits you in every way. Whether you’re looking for a traditional Victorian style or a contemporary airy room with plenty of mod-cons, you know that its truly yours and built for you to enjoy. That’s how we work at Paul Barry KBB, our creations produce an inspirational functional space for you to relax, entertain, unwind or invigorate.

From the design process through to installation, we handle absolutely every element of bathroom renovation. All you need to do is tell us what you want for your room and we will do the rest.

Achieving a Modern Kitchen Style

When it is time to update your kitchen design, you want something that will stand out and be completely unique. If you’re looking a modern kitchen style as your next design, our blog is here to help you achieve your goals.

Do you love a clean, modern look? Then a stylish, modern kitchen is the right choice for you. It is all about handle less designs, minimal horizontal and vertical accents. Here’s how to achieve the modern kitchen style you’ve always dreamed of.

It does not take a whole lot of effort to transform your kitchen from one that looks outdated to a completely modern design. First, you need to eliminate all your clutter. Not only does this help you achieve a modern kitchen style, but it is also incredibly satisfying and has many practical advantages.

Modern kitchens are not meant to have loads of appliances and items on the worktops – they are made to be clutter free. Instead, opt for larder pull-out cabinets and savvy storage solutions when discussing your new requirements with your kitchen designer.

The idea of filling your kitchen worktops with appliances and things that should be stored away have no place in a modern design. Without clutter, your kitchen will be a calm and spacious environment in which to cook and prepare food.

Modern kitchens are all about being ahead of the curve, and that means plenty of modern appliances. Fill your new kitchen will plenty of smart technology to go with the sleek design of your kitchen.

For example, kettles that you can control the temperature and turn on/off with an app, smart ovens that uses a camera to look at your food and determines the best way to cook it by setting its own temperature and time, or a fridge with a built-in camera for those times when you are out shopping and can’t remember if you bought milk yesterday or not. All this and much more will make your lives so much easier and your kitchen experience more enjoyable.

There’s no point having the smartest kitchen technology if the design of the space isn’t up to scratch. The ultimate way to achieve a modern kitchen style is through your choice of cabinets and worktops.

Handleless cupboard doors are the secret to the modern kitchen style. They look incredibly sleek and there is an expensive, glossy and luxurious sense that comes with handleless kitchen cupboards and they add that complete style to a room. If you want to achieve a modern kitchen style, this is the best starting point.

Painted Bathroom Advice

A painted bathroom with a fresh lick of paint is one of the easiest, quickest and cheapest ways to spruce up a tired-looking bathroom. In recent years, painted bathrooms have become the preferred choice for home owners rather than conventional tiles. The current surge in the trend is often down to people wanting the option to choose their own bathroom colours, changing regularly to remain fresh and trendy for many years.

So, what colour are you going to choose for your bathroom paint? From calming neutral tones to darker hues, there is a whole host of options out there for you. Our painted bathroom design experts are here to offer you advice when it comes to painting your bathroom and styling it accordingly to make sure it remains a timeless space in your home.

Before you start painting, make sure that whatever option you choose you must ensure that it is an anti-mould bathroom paint. Due to the moisture and water of your bathroom, it is the perfect condition for mould and mildew to grow so make sure you pick a paint option that is resistant and easy to keep clean. Ask for assistance in your hardware store so you know the right materials to buy if you’re unsure.

Once you’ve got the materials its time to paint your bathroom and we’re often asked, “what colour should I paint my bathroom?” and our answer is always the same: whatever colour you like! But we always offer our advice:

Neutral palettes offer a soothing and calm bathroom, so think grey and beige tones. Not only do these look chic, they allow small bathrooms to look bigger. If you have a small bathroom, we suggest a neutral tone painted bathroom. Taupe and subdued yellows also allow small bathrooms to look bigger and they obtain a soothing, relaxing yet regal and elegant sensation.

On the flipside, going bold with striking reds and sharp blues really gives a pop. These can be ultra-modern in a sleek contemporary bathroom or work as a design flair in a traditional, Victorian style bathroom. Believe it or not, a bold primary colour can really be an amazing addition to a bathroom. The bright colour will look particularly striking as a backdrop against a pure, white bathroom suite.

A flash of a bright, fun colour can make your bathroom a unique place to express your personality. It must be seen to be believed.

For the ultimate sophistication, try adding a rich, dark shade of grey. Working against a traditional bathroom installation, a dark grey wall can feel drama and elegance for your bathroom.

A plain white painted bathroom can never be the wrong choice. As all your bathroom wares are most probably white, the space will look airy, clean and fresh. A lighter colour paint palette can work well in warmer months too as it will instantly create a light, summery finish.
