Last week, I was invited up to Magnet’s Kensington store to learn more about their beautiful range of kitchens, and the selection of clever ‘Smart Space Solutions’ they’ve created. I met with store manager Rilwan, who talked me through the ranges and products available, and was totally game for playing model for me in a few photos. Thanks Rilwan! The Smart Space Solutions Magnet have created are designed to help customers with smaller kitchens make the most of the space available. As the owner (and supreme ruler) of a teeny tiny kitchen myself (it used to be galley-style, until we changed it up a couple of years ago) it was fascinating to learn more about the ways Magnet have come up with to help cheat space out of small kitchens.

One of the innovations I marvelled most at was the ‘Show and Hide’ sink. It has a pull-up, push-down tap and is sunken below the line of the worktop, so that a removable panel of worktop can be placed over the top of it to create extra working space on the kitchen counter. Genius! Know what else is genius, that Magnet offer? It’s called the ‘Sound Bar’, and is a slimline speaker that fits right in between kitchen cupboard units and can be placed at multiple points throughout the kitchen. It connects to your phone via Bluetooth, allowing you to play your music wirelessly through the speakers and pretty much turn your kitchen into a mini-disco.

Imagine it. Dim lights. Music up loud, chopping and stirring whilst dancing along to Beyonce’s new album, which is playing right out from the kitchen units. How AMAZING is that?! And genius! < That’s what I kept saying to Rilwan the whole way round the store. ‘Genius! That’s genius! Why has no-one thought of that before?!’

Magnet offer what they call a ‘Full Circle Service’, from initial consultation, to a full digital design and floor plan, complete installation (and workmanship guarantee), and aftercare. Our kitchen was installed (by Jason’s own fair hands!) two years ago and is beginning to show some wear and tear, so it’s the SmartCare service Magnet offer that really caught me. One year after installation, Magnet will pop round and check over the kitchen, to make sure that it’s still in perfect working order. Cupboard alignment can be tweaked, hinges can be oiled- it’s essentially like an MOT, but for your kitchen!

Basically, I was super, super impressed by Magnet. Their service seems slick and modern and incredibly personal, and in my opinion seems to stand way ahead of the offerings of other high-street kitchen companies. And now I really want a new kitchen! If we could justify having a new one right this second (which we totally can’t, but *if*) I’d probably go for these beautiful white kitchen units, with a pale white-grey granite top and white tiled splash back. Oh, and a few of those fabulous Sound Bars of course, because who could say no to a disco kitchen?!

    Oh god, I have this image of my future house / apartment as a small but really well designed space where everything is designed for optimal functionality, and this post is just like a… kitchen-orgasm? Is that thing? Well from now on it’s a thing.
