Good Morning! We'd like to say a big thank you to all those who wished us a Happy Birthday and were able to join us in the showroom on Saturday to celebrate! We had a great time and a lovely response to our new furniture ranges which was great to hear.

We've posted a few snapshots of some of them below but further official images of the whole event will follow!

Window Treatment Ideas For Your Home

 As you know here at Planet we love nothing more than designing fabulous furniture to suit your home! Once we have finished our part, we're often asked to recommend a place which can help with the interior furnishings and this is where our friends at Gilroy Interiors come in.

We're probably asked the most about paint and window treatments, windows are often the focus of a room and with so many furnishing options available its hard to know where to start. Gilroy Interiors have a beautiful showroom based in the market square in Hitchin and will help and guide you through the number of choices available. They have been kind enough to share with us below some inspirational photo's based on different window types.

This pretty roman blind draws your eye and is perfect in this country style kitchen.

The pretty fabrics are also continued on the table and seat cushions, bringing the whole scheme together.

 Folding sliding doors are still so popular and can be dressed in a variety of ways such as with a beautiful single curtain on a hidden track..

or these overlapping fabric panels are a striking alternative.

  The pretty sheer patterned roller blind is perfect for these french doors and still allows light through giving a soft effect.

And finally we thought we would include our own shutters here in the showroom which were also from Gilroy Interiors and we're very happy with them! Shutters are a really popular option and can work in both a traditional and contemporary setting with their smart and clean look.

Well we hope this gives you a few ideas for finishing off your scheme. If you do require any further information then please get in touch with Gilroy Interiors and they'll be more than happy to help.

Beautiful Modern New Build with High Gloss Kitchen

We have an exciting new build to show you today, with many beautiful features including a white high gloss kitchen by Planet. The brief for the build was to create a modern family home which was achieved by using plenty of contemporary finishes such as glass and stone. The large windows and feature skylight flood the house with light which also adds to the spacious modern feel.

The imposing front facade of the house.

The large entrance hall has a dramatic glass ceiling above which brings light into the space.  

The stunning skylight and glass floor in the landing floods light into the entrance hall below.

The large kitchen space is zoned into different areas by use of furniture and feature lighting creating a wonderful place to gather and entertain and take in the wonderful views of the garden.

The kitchen itself features white high gloss Parapan doors with walnut accents complimented by a beautiful Corian work surface. It has a combination of base units, lift-up wall units and a full height storage wall maximising the amount of space available. It also has a large sit at breakfast bar and state of the art stainless steel appliances from Miele.

The breakfast bar showcases the capabilities of Corian beautifully with its curved design.

The area has a great chill out sofa space..

and a large dining area for entertaining.

The stunning view of the house from the garden.

What do you think of the style of this house? Do you like the contemporary look and feel or would you prefer something more traditional? We'd love to hear what you think.

Here at Planet Furniture we provide a range of furniture styles so we're sure to have something to suit you, call us today for a free no obligation design quotation.

Today we'd like to share with you more exciting changes taking place here at Planet! In conjunction with the same German manufacturer, we're now offering a new competitive range called The C Collection.

The collection is available in 28 beautiful colours from muted to vibrant so whatever your taste there's sure to be one to suit you.

Look out for our new displays in the showroom nextdoor which will be on their way very soon! These will include country and contemporary style kitchens, storage, bedroom and home office furniture, once again demonstrating the versatility of this beautiful product.
