SPONSORED: A design for life: Make your kitchen dream come true with Frisby Kitchens
Working from home, playing from home, living from home: the Covid-19 restrictions have been challenging for everyone, especially young families who have found themselves cooped up together for long periods of time.
These unprecedented times have also put our homes to the test like never before as we try to incorporate work spaces and play areas for the kids into whatever room we have available.
But it also provides us with a rare opportunity to really assess our living needs and to examine how we can make our living spaces more effective.
For most Irish people, of course, the kitchen/living area is where we spend most of our time: it’s the heartbeat of the home, the engine room that feeds and fuels us from morning to night.
Whether you want a quick make-over or a complete renovation, redoing your kitchen requires in-depth planning as it plays a huge role in your life and home.
Your kitchen should reflect your interior design style and the choices are endless: industrial, classic country, contemporary, retro, rustic, Shaker-style – and everything in between.
Once you’ve decided on the overall style, the next vital step is to find the right kitchen company who can tailor your individual requirements into a design for life and a kitchen to suit your needs that will stand the test of time.
Frisby Kitchens has been doing just that for over three decades. After learning his trade with Arco in Waterford Tommy Frisby branched out on his own back in 1982, and the company has gone from strength to strength ever since, through the good times and the recessions in between.
Tommy and his son Shane, who has worked by his father’s side since around the age of 10, have nurtured a deep understanding of every customer’s unique needs. They pride themselves on being able to deliver an innovative range of kitchen solutions for every job, to suit every shape, size and style.
From their impressive showroom in Mullinavat, Co Kilkenny, Frisby Kitchens plan, design and deliver their bespoke kitchens to a wide range of clients across the south east.
As Shane explains: “We are a small family business, but what sets us apart from our competitors is that we are able to provide a very personal service to achieve the most effective and efficient kitchen solutions for all of our customers.
“We can cater for all sizes and styles: from timeless classic designs, contemporary to the designer chic – we have something in our collection for everyone.”
Frisby Kitchens’ range includes beautiful laminates, timber, granite and solid surface worktops combined with a full suite of leading brand appliances.
Their decades’ long experience also means they are able to work with any budget to deliver the perfect kitchen solution to suit your family’s individual needs. After an initial consultation, the team at Frisby Kitchens will bring your dream kitchen to life using the latest cutting-edge 3D technology.
Shane says: “We’re happy to host individual consultations at our showroom and to listen to what you are looking for in your dream kitchen. Our expert staff will talk you through all of the various options and I’m confident we’ll be able to deliver the perfect kitchen to suit your individual needs and requirements.”
Given the recent social-distancing restrictions to combat Covid-19, the initial consultation will be conducted by telephone or video call through platforms such as Zoom, Facetime or WhatsApp until further notice. Images from Frisby Kitchens’ showroom are also available on their website.
Frisby Kitchens also takes the welfare of its staff seriously and have, therefore, taken the decision to close its manufacturing facility until the social-distancing restrictions have been lifted. However, now is a good opportunity for you to contact Tommy or Shane to commence the first stage in the design and planning process.
Frisby Kitchens will take you through five initial steps in your journey to create your perfect kitchen.
Think carefully about the design choices you make, from worktop materials to cabinet handles – all the small details add up to make your perfect kitchen scheme. Clever storage, lighting and colour palette will play a vital role in making a small kitchen feel larger.
(2) Work to a budget:
Be clear about what you can afford. The sky can be the limit when it comes redoing or revamping your kitchen, but Frisby Kitchens will work closely with you to ensure your project is as cost effective as possible.
Your new kitchen may look beautiful, but does it function as a working space? Frisby Kitchens’ expert team will ensure the finished design matches your individual or family’s needs and that your work space between cooker, fridge and sink is not cramped.
(4) Modern living needs:
Combined kitchen/dining/living areas have become the norm these days and the formal dining room, if it exists at all, is rarely used. Frisby Kitchens
understand that the kitchen has become part of a multi-functional area and their team spends a lot of time looking at how to marry the various zones so they flow into each other.
“Flexibility in kitchen design is really important for people now as they need their kitchens to function with small children and equally well with teenagers,” says Shane Frisby. “Family life changes fast and our homes often struggle to keep up. Many of our customers look for a solution that allows them to adapt their home to suit their ever-changing needs.”
(5) Build to last:
When designing you dream kitchen, it’s vital to ensure it lasts the test of time. Frisby Kitchens strive to ensure you are given every choice possible in terms of finish and design to create a kitchen that’s perfect for your needs, today and for many years to come.
