Notoriously the most difficult room to decorate, kitchens often fall prey to being “functional” areas rather than beautiful spaces. Pots pile up. Espresso machines vie
for space with blenders. Steel stoves stick out and countertops must be made out of scratch-resistant material, rather than visually appealing materials such as wood. But Sleek International has a two-pronged strategy to beat designer woes. First, the 12-year-old company stocks a drool-inducing line of kitchen modules, so it’s your one-stop shop for the entire room, from the cabinets and refrigerators down to space-saving shelves and stove-top chimneys. And, second, the company showrooms have a computer program that generates a design solution for your kitchen in five minutes. Simply choose your colour palette from its range of 500 shades, opt for your style of cabinets and material, pick out the accessories you want, and the program will create your vision. If the colour is too much, try a new one. If you realize you need an extra kitchen trolley for your children’s favourite snacks, you can throw that in. Or, if you want to begin all over again, just simply start from scratch. There are instant design solutions for even the pickiest of chefs.
