The Multifaceted Kitchen Island

The kitchen island is a multi-functional part of the kitchen, and the hub to the various uses it has from hosting, food prep, cooking to dining. From a design perspective there is so much you can do with an island with: Split level, breakfast bar seating, slim islands and chefs islands. There are so many options!

Quirky surfaces

Quirky and unique surfaces are becoming increasingly more popular. Whether they’re used as worktops or splash backs, it’s an easy way to create a high impact look. Take this Compac Quartz with waterfall end in ice black as seen above, we love how it is such a big contrast from the pale cream doors. This can equally work with modern or traditional kitchens.

Multi-tonal fixtures and floors

We have noticed more and more people are after a contrast with the tones they use. The mix of light and dark doors can make a kitchen feel much larger. Using darker shades for your base cabinets can prevent the cabinets feeling ‘too heavy’ but still give a beautiful contrast.

Smeg Pink

The Year of Pink!

With the Pantone colour of the year 2023 being pink or more specifically ‘Viva Magenta 18-1750’ and the Barbie takeover of the summer. We are absolutely loving the amount of pink we are seeing being used in kitchens, whether it’s with appliances or full furniture, the pop of colour is so fun and playful.

Green Production

Going Green

With sustainability becoming more and more important for the consumer, we as a company are ensuring we are offering products and materials that will help us be part of building a better future for the eco-friendly world. The German kitchen brand we sell ‘Rotpunkt’ have recently introduced ‘Greenline BioBoard Gen2’, with chipboards consisting of 90% recycled wood and have also confirmed their plans to make their production sites in Bünde and Getmold 100% carbon-neutral.

Chellaston, Derby | Mrs McAleer

He was always quick and responsive to changes and amendments to our kitchen design and quote. Wayne and his team were outstanding with the installation of the kitchen. They were so professional, hard working and delivered to the highest standard. We would highly recommend LEA to anyone having had such a good experience with them."

Littleover, Derbyshire | Mr & Mrs Hession

"The whole process ran extremely smoothly. In the initial planning stage Iain took on board our requirements incorporating them into a functional design. Wayne and his team of craftsmen completed the building works to a very high standard. Craig fitted the kitchen, he has a keen eye for detail and is a perfectionist. "

Chellaston, Derby | Mr Dulewicz

"From start to finish, a truly exceptional customer experience. Ian’s creativity and design helped shape our thinking, bringing our new kitchen to life! We are thrilled with the results and cannot recommend Long ‘Eaton Kitchen & Appliances’ highly enough! A huge thank you to the whole team!"

Beeston, Nottingham | Mr Chambers

"We chose Long Eaton Appliances for our new kitchen because there was no competition after our initial meeting with Ian. Nothing was too much trouble for Ian as he spent time with us showing the quality of the products and different designs in the showroom. With myself having a disability and using a wheelchair Ian gave helpful advice which enabled ourselves to make the right decisions. We haven’t looked back since it’s installation and would have no hesitation in recommending Long Eaton Appliances when looking for your new kitchen."

Breaston, Derbyshire | Mr & Mrs Burne

"When we were planning our extension the kitchen was always going to be the main focal point. We tried all of the usual ‘high street companies’ but none of them came close to the service, quality or price we got from LE Appliances. Ian ensured everything was of a very high standard from our first meeting through to completion of the project."

Wilford, Nottingham | Mr Sale

"Excellent service from the second we walked into the showroom. We were made to feel like individuals throughout and that is certainly how it feels now, knowing we have a truly bespoke kitchen without breaking the bank! The fitters were on time, courteous and friendly, sorting any minor hiccups as they went without any fuss."

Breaston, Derbyshire | Mr Wellard

"Long Eaton Appliances excelled in the following areas: The design we envisaged involved a lot of small adjustments to maximise the amount of cabinets and appliances we could fit into the area we had. We spent half a day with Ian and felt that the finished design was a credit to his knowledge and patience. The showroom staff were very helpful in demonstrating all appliances that were on show. As we wanted a modern kitchen with a free-standing cooker, it was good having the ability to look at all the options in the showroom and, ultimately, have just one supplier. The fitter, Craig, was also exceptional. He was very focused and the quality of his work drew much praise from three individual tradesmen on the site all with experience in similar areas."

Chilwell, Nottingham | Mr Stringer

"Long Eaton Appliances have provided us with a great kitchen. Right from the initial design phase our expectations were exceeded. The installation team were fantastic and come thoroughly recommended. We were also really impressed with the technical knowledge of all of the guys in the store. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Long Eaton Appliances to anyone."

Chellaston, Derby | Mr Chittenden

"Long Eaton Appliances has supplied us with a top quality kitchen meeting all our needs. Ian in particular has been very professional helping us right from the design stage to final fitting. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and their service has been second to none."
