Focus on solid worktops namely Silestone has overtaken granite and marble due to a much extended range in the higher priced bracket. High quality cabinet interiors and corner solutions namely magic corners, le mans and self closing carousels are now seem as a must have. Drawers and pan drawers are replacing cupboards as the much improved capacity and access eliminates stooping or kneeling itemscompared with standard cupboards.
