Stylish good looks are only the start. It's worth looking for a new kitchen that's robust enough to give you good service for years to come

Next time you visit a kitchen showroom, don't be too surprised if the kitchen designer asks to borrow your watch.

A design consultant in a Thermotek Kitchens showroom will often demonstrate with a watch or bracelet, running it along a door to show its scratch-resistance. They may go on to explain that the company uses a process which uses heat and intense pressure to bond the finished surface. This creates a durable finish that lends itself to fine detailing. That, plus a policy of using high-end components and materials, is why the company offers a 10-year guarantee on all its kitchens.

The demonstration is effective, but it's also a bit of light relief for people feeling stressed by the whole experience, says Paul Mitchell of Thermotek Kitchens.

"Planning a kitchen can be overwhelming while we may know what we like, we often don't know where to begin," he says. "That's why we offer a full consultation and installation service, based on a customer's lifestyle and budget."

Thermotek's showrooms have full-sized kitchens on display, with styles from sleek modern to rustic farmhouse. Many customers come through word of mouth and some are on their second or third Thermotek kitchen.
