Housebuilder CALA ensures its latest luxury development has boiling water on-tap

The brief
CALA Homes

Making a development stand out is a priority for housebuilders, who want to attract buyers in an increasingly competitive marketplace. The kitchen is always going to be a key room for buyers, with the average Brit spending 253 minutes per week in the kitchen cooking meals. Add on top of that washing-up, cleaning, preparing packed lunches and even helping with homework, it’s fair to say that we spend a lot of time in the kitchen. So how can developers ensure they seduce buyers with a functional, striking kitchen, that also adds an element of luxury to daily life?

Our solution

Housebuilder CALA Homes turned to Zip Water for a recent development in South Lanarkshire, knowing that having a HydroTap would be a key selling point.

CALA Homes - Our Solution

Eileen Kesson, interior designer at Envision for CALA Homes comments: “This particular development, Riverside at Bothwell, is a very important and high-spec development for CALA Homes (West), featuring some of its most luxurious housetypes to date. The development comprises 12 five-bedroomed detached homes including the Waterston - the largest in the portfolio.

“Because of its exclusive nature, it was imperative that all the homes on this development included the most up-to-date product on the market. After Zip was recommended to us by our kitchen supplier Creative Designs, we had no hesitation in including it as standard.”

The product chosen was the Zip HydroTap Celsius Cube in matt black, providing filtered boiling water alongside unfiltered hot and cold. This WRAS-approved 3-in-1 tap ensures the homeowner can not only keep their stunning kitchen worktops free from drink-making clutter, but can enjoy the time-saving benefits of having filtered boiling water in an instant.

“Having an instant boiling water tap certainly helps to set this development apart”, continues Eileen. “The Cube design in matt black perfectly complements the kitchens’ state-of-the art interiors, looking modern and sophisticated. We were keen to have a product that not only offered the most advanced functionality, but that complemented the homes’ bespoke architectural approach.
