The Cornerstone of Any Kitchen Setup
What Size and Design?
This may sound like the most basic of considerations, but is it suitable to buy, for instance, a shiny chrome kitchen sinks drainer when the rest of the kitchen setup is designed around a more 'rustic' and country look?
Getting a setup that matches what is already planned for the rest of the kitchen, or at least the worktop surrounding the drainer, is integral. For this reason, it's worth considering the purchase of a fully fitted unit; the sink, taps, and drainer will then all match up perfectly.
At our on-line store we offer fully matching kitchen sets, with the option to customise all parts so the buyer can get a truly personal feeling whilst ensuring all pieces look smart. However, manufacturer’s as Astracast and Franke are still able to supply sinks and taps that'll match the feel of your preferred setup.Installation
Fitting the drainer should really be left to someone who understands the multitude of purposes that a drainer serves. Not only is the unit intended to collect the runoff from crockery, cutlery and other items, but it should also be able to effectively 'drain' away the water. Incorrectly fitted kitchen drainers very often will just pool the water, causing unsightly and unhealthy collections of stagnant liquid.
However, purchasing a drainer needn't be a long and arduous task. Applying common sense to both the purchase and installation will mean that it becomes a pleasant centrepiece for the kitchen, whether installed by the buyer or a specialist, and whether as part of a fully fitted kitchen or on its own.
