By Boat, RV or Expo – Kitchen Views Goes The Distance For You

NKBA Boston Harbor Dinner Cruise aboard the Spirit of Boston ship September 10, 2013

“Where the designers are pros, and the views are yours.” That is our motto here at Kitchen Views. We are here to design for you with integrity and the highest quality products possible.

This summer, we hosted an open house style RV showroom displaying counter materials from Cosentino. They drove to Mansfield and parked their RV in our lot and were there to meet with designers, builders, and homeowners about their different product lines. Most recently, the KV designers met with various vendors to see what is trending for 2014. Here are a couple of examples from the evening.

Cabinets – The designers at KV joined cabinet dealers to take a look at new product on the NKBA‘s Boston Harbor Cruise. Cabinet vendors showed the designers the new textured doors and rich grays that are available cabinetry swatch showing textured veneer finishfor 2014.  Kitchen Views stays ahead of the curve by making sure new product is available to customers right away. Contractors that work with KV enjoy the fact that their customers are getting the most current products on the market.

Counters – Countertop material has changed dramatically in the marketplace. New finish processes prevent staining more than ever. The designers tested the new SileStone Suede finish by attempting to scratch and stain it.

Each designer took a different approach to test the material to make sure customers were going to be satisfied with overall durability. Some attempted to scratch it with glass, knifes and tile. Others tried to stain it with cherries, red wine and soda. The product performed exceptionally well and KV will be displaying the new product in the Newton store next month. These types of meetings give the designers a real trial of how these products will perform in the field.

Innovative Kitchen Composting

SOLON™ Compost System - Lid Off

SOLON™ Compost System

Through a Twitter update, we discovered this new product that we thought might interest you. The SOLON composting system debuted at KBIS in April 2010. This new device is made by Blanco America, a manufacturer of innovative sinks and faucets.

From Blanco by Design, Blanco America’s company blog:

“The SOLON ingeniously collects egg shells, vegetable peels, coffee grounds and more,” states Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. “People are so intrigued with composting, but they don’t want a bulky container taking up valuable space and they are afraid of odors. SOLON traps odors inside and integrates seamlessly with the counter so you hardly know it’s there. It’s an eco-friendly way to bring the beauty of BLANCO from the kitchen to the garden. It’s also incredibly easy to install in any countertop. We have a drop-in design that can go anywhere and a flush option for stone tops. You don’t have to re-do your kitchen to incorporate composting into your life.”
