“The kitchen hadn’t been touched since the 70s and was all peach gloss walls and net curtains, so was in desperate need of some TLC,” comments Rebecca. “We wanted a bright, family-friendly space with an island but I also wanted to use a fresh and interesting palette. We chose green (Farrow & Ball’s Treron) for the kitchen units with brass accents and wood tones.” When it comes to kitchen appliances, Rebecca has definitely noticed a common theme among her clients, “genuinely, the number one luxury, top of the wish list item is a boiling water tap,” she says. “However it was only when we were doing our kitchen that I started to consider how much we’d benefit from one - certainly when it comes to the convenience of having a cuppa, or more importantly, bedtime milk for our toddler, in a matter of seconds!”View Range
One thing that Rebecca was keen on was to get a tap that fitted in well with the green and brass colour scheme. “Zip have been on my radar for a while, so I was thrilled to discover the tap comes in brushed gold,” she continues. “But I know from experience that style can often outweigh performance and there’s nothing worse than something that looks great but just doesn’t work. Luckily Zip is a trusted brand so we chose the Zip HydroTap Celsius Arc in brushed gold.” Rebecca’s Celsius Arc is much more than just a boiling water tap, providing unfiltered hot and cold water alongside filtered boiling. “Because it is my regular kitchen tap as well as my boiling water tap the kitchen has retained a clean, minimal feel,” adds Rebecca. “My counter tops aren’t cluttered and we have no use for a slow-to-boil kettle. It really has transformed daily life for us.”Enquire Today
