Everyone has their own idea of the perfect kitchen, but at the end of the day a cluttered kitchen with saucepans hanging from the ceiling and crockery sitting on open shelves for an age can all contribute to an unhygienic kitchen – unless you are an extremely busy cook, that is. The trend these days is for clever storage, sleek tops and walls (without ridges and grouting) and coordinated cabinets so that the overall look of your kitchen is organised,
at the height of cleanliness and easy on the eye. Warmcoloured metals have been making a comeback in a big way and, combined with stone or wood, they can make a kitchen look truly sensational.
The Asia Factory range by Arredo 3 features a contemporary and industrial look combining wood and metal with clean lines. There is a beautiful rawness to the aesthetic of this kitchen range that exudes both a modern and a
timeless design. Arredo3 is available from Decodan Interiores in Avda. Juan Carlos I in Estepona (www.decodainteriores.com).
