Recently they renovated the kitchen in their Victorian property in Kent, breathing life into the hub of their home. Opting for classic Borough Market green units, the kitchen is kept fresh and modern with marble-inspired quartz worktops, off-walls, brass handles and pale pink accent tiles behind the Range.
“As with most families, our kitchen really is the heart of the home,” comments Simon, “and having lived in the house for two years, we felt it was time to really put our own stamp on it. As our following has grown, we’ve started to include more posts on interiors, giving followers a glimpse into our home, any new furnishings and room updates.”
It was after seeing a friend - and fellow content creator - Lily Pebbles’ new kitchen that Clemmie and Simon realised they must have an instant boiling tap in their new kitchen. “In a world where everything is available on demand, waiting for a kettle to boil seems positively stone-aged, especially when we’re time poor, so getting a Zip HydroTap was a no-brainer for us. Being able to cook pasta quickly or make a rushed cup of tea in an instant saves valuable minutes,” adds Clemmie. “We loved the look of Lily’s and it was so easy to use, so we didn’t look at any other brands.”
The Hoopers chose a Zip HydroTap Arc in a brushed gold finish, which dispenses filtered boiling and ambient water, with a matching mixer tap for regular hot and cold water.
“It’s all about convenience,” continues Simon, “Clemmie and I both have days where we work from home so it’s great to be able to have hot drinks within seconds. The filtered ambient water encourages us all to drink more water, as it actually tastes nice and we don’t need to buy and store bottled water.”
Another important consideration was safety. With four young family members, Simon and Clemmie needed reassurance that the tap would be completely safe. Not only is the HydroTap cool to touch but its boiling isolation mode means boiling water cannot be accessed by little ones, providing crucial peace of mind for the family.
“Both taps have been fantastic additions to our new kitchen,” adds Clemmie. “Not only do they look amazing with the brushed gold complementing the dark units and brass fixtures, but they have been a very welcome helping hand in what is often a very busy kitchen!”
