Taking Liberties !!

Ey up my faithful blogworms, another new product this week. 

Over the years, a lot of you will already know that we've been offering painted doors in any colour you like, any size you need.

 It's been our proud boast for a long time that there isn't a kitchen in the UK that we can't fit replacement doors to and that still stands !! However, you've also asked if we can supply kitchen unit doors that you can paint yourself or have a specialist kitchen painter create effects for you.

Well, we have done this before but now we've found a new range of doors that expand that concept.

Below is a picture of the Hoxton Finsbury door painted in one of the standard colours from the range. 

Here at Milestone HQ, we have been given exclusive availability on this door in a new way for you, our treasured customers.

1. Importantly, it can still be made any size we need it to be, enabling us to us it for absolutely any kitchen out there.

2. It's an unusual and very stylish woodgrained MDF Shaker door, so when painted, it looks like a timber door but without paying timber door prices, therefore keeping costs down.

3. As you can see from the picture, we can cater for the increasingly popular curved doors, something we haven't been able to do up to now in this way !

4. It's a 21mm thick door, so a good solid door, none of the thin flimsy articles that seem to have been popping up in the market lately.

5. And this is the "Ace in the hole" it's available ..... Primed in white for you to apply your own paint effect or finish straight on to the door.

The big advantage to being able to paint your own doors it that at any time in the future when your kitchen starts to look a little tired, you can simply re-paint it yourself, giving it a low cost, whole new lease of life.

You've all heard, I'm sure, people say " It's only ............, how hard can it be ??" Usually before they dive into a project and ruin it through either lack of knowledge or lack of skill .... or both !!

This is very different, however, because quite literally all you need is a tin of paint, a small foam roller & tray and a bit of patience and the results can be extremely satisfying !!

We'll call it ....The Liberty Door....... giving you freedom to choose your own style !!

Roll up, Roll up, It's display change time !

Ey up my faithful blogworms, significant changes to our Eco stable this week. With a major reshuffle of our main board supplier, we are able to increase our range of colours for both the EcoSelect and Eco2 range of kitchens.

Important News: Reading the trend reports from the major kitchen shows around the world a few of things stand out.

1) The current trend for flat grey colours seems to be dying out now, it's been around for a couple of years and appears to have run it's course. It did this back in the 90's and the same sort of timescale occured then.

2) The up coming colours seem to be blues, green/blues and certain grey/greens in the single ( or uni ) colours.

3) The trend on woodgrains appears to be leading us down the "driftwood" sort of route with very linear creams, brown/greys and silvery greys often associated with the driftwood you see lying around on the beach

If I had to give the new on-trend colours a theme, I would say we're going 'coastal', which is strange as this was reflected in the kitchen we've just finished as featured in last weeks blog !! Not contrived, I can assure as the reports only came out this week for us.

Anyway, back to the point, I get there eventually, with the re-shuffle of colours we can now offer 36 colours into our two Eco ranges I mentioned above. This is way more than we had before on EcoSelect by about threefold and certainly 50% more than we had in Eco2

So it's display change time !!

In light of all these changes, our existing Eco2 display in now up for sale.

Stuffed with features and able to be added to if you require, we are clearing this display to make room for a new one in new colours.

We will include the hob, the hood and the sink, the lighting, in fact, everything except the fridge !!

 Makes a change, it's usually everything except the kitchen sink !!!!

So if you're after a bargain, truck on down to Milestone HQ and see if what we've got fits your space.

Regards. Jules
