A look back at the year and our Christmas opening hours

So... 2021, where on earth do we start with this one?

Over on the crazy side of the fence it’s been another tumultuous year of uncertainties, polarising events and almost comical controversies. It’s certainly different out and about, so it’s even more important than ever that we feel happy and safe in our own homes and interior spaces adapt to our new ways of living and working.

Few of us relish change, especially if it’s sudden or unexpected, so the last couple of years have required a bit of extra effort to get by. The one place we do have complete control over however, are our homes. So lets have a look at what changes Counter Interiors have put in place throughout 2021 and what those changes mean for you.

Time for a Change

Twenty20 offered everyone the opportunity to adapt and at Counter Interiors we used the lull in footfall to both expand and upgrade our showroom. Having previously been a solely Masterclass Kitchens partner the decision was made to take on board a second kitchen supplier to compliment our existing line up and after much deliberation we opted for Nolte Küchen from Germany.

Voted Germany’s favourite kitchen brand 3 years running by the DISQ German Institute for Service Quality GMBH & Co. and coming in at a similar price point to our current Masterclass range, the Nolte range and options sit perfectly alongside our current showroom.

Voted for by who?

The German Institute for Service Quality (DISQ) is a commercial market research institute that carries out service studies and is comparable to our own research magazine Which? here in the UK. Most people in the UK are familiar with the Which? brand as well as their Which? Trusted Traders scheme of which Counter Interiors are proud to be a member. Readers of the magazine and studies are shown beyond the sales hype and glossy advertising to give them the information required to make a more informed decision. A kitchen is a large investment with many parts to co-ordinate, knowing the product you are purchasing has been recommended by an independent reviewer will give you peace of mind that what is eventually installed matches your expectations.

Masterclass Product Launch

Each year Masterclass Kitchens release an update to their line up. Over recent years we’ve seen new ranges, new internal storage solutions and now we have bigger and better cabinets.

Masterclass have retained the build quality and rigidity of their cabinets whilst at the same time using less materials and providing more space. Cabinets are now deeper and any dual door cabinet no longer has a centre support pillar impeding your access.

Introducing… The Next Chapter in Cabinet Design

This year, Masterclass are thinking inside the box. Their new range of kitchen cabinets entirely eliminates the need for centre mullions within the unit. The new and improved design boasts increased rigidity, efficient manufacturing, safer transportation, and quicker installation.

They haven’t stopped there…

As well as new cabinets, Masterclass have also announced the introduction of:

  1. New kitchen handles
  2. New kitchen ranges
  3. New kitchen finishes

And we can finally let you in on the:

  1. New Sliding Systems
  2. New Lighting
  3. New Accessories

Watch the videos below to discover the complete launch.
