A larder cupboard is one of the most efficient ways of providing storage in the kitchen. Manufacturers of modular kitchens tend to provide a 500mm wide, tall unit at a standard 570mm depth, but that isn't a very useful size. My favourite size for a larder is 800mm wide but with a depth of just 350 – 400mm. Obviously it won't line up with other standard depth units but – if you can find space for one of these wide, shallow larders in your kitchen – it's a very useful size.
I first wrote about waste diposal units (WDUs) in the kitchen back in 2007 after I'd been to a trade show and talked to the people at Waste Maid ...and I've been similarly prompted to think about the subject recently, after visiting the InSink Erator (ISE) stand at the Grand Designs Live show last week.
I went to the Grand Designs Live show at Excel London this last week ... partly to look at the kitchen displays (more about those in future blogs) ... but also to listen to the Kitchen Debate.
If you're a serious cook, then you'll appreciate a serious cooker which will allow you to make the most of your talents. Of course, that means you need a serious budget too and the cookers involved tend to be based on commercial models which are very sturdily built but tend not to have lots of features. That makes it even more important that you choose the right model for what you want.
