We’ve been closely monitoring Government health advice relating to the spread of coronavirus. Our team will continue to follow Government recommendations – with the aim of reducing the risk of passing the virus between our customers and our tradespeople. We’re continuing to book jobs for customers who are self-isolating so that people aren’t left without essential services. We send regular COVID-19 updates to our workforce. They’re well informed about symptoms as well as the general hygiene measures and social distancing. All our tradespeople have been told they must confirm they are feeling well and haven’t experienced any symptoms of COVID-19. They do this first thing in the morning on a daily basis. All of our workforce have been asked to follow the WHO’s standard infection control measures: Frequently cleaning hands using alcohol-based hand sanitiser or soap and water When coughing or sneezing to cover the mouth and nose with a tissue or flexed elbow, then to dispose of the tissue immediately before washing hands Avoiding close contact with anyone who has a fever and cough To contact NHS 111 and seek medical care early if a fever, cough or breathing difficulty occurs Avoid touching your face, especially eyes, nose and mouth.

Although Capital Granite is based in London, we operate nationally and supply our materials to a wide range of clients up and down the United Kingdom. We will also aim to offer you an appointment with us within 2 days. Our showroom in Walthamstow is also open 6 days a week where you can find more information about what we do and get a closer look at our services first hand.

Creating a Family-Friendly Kitchen

No matter what stage your kitchen remodel or redesign is in, there are plenty of ways to incorporate family-friendly touches into making your space benefit the whole of your household - helping you to live the life that you want.

Open Plan Living

Open floor plans not only give you spacious living and more design flexibility, but can help to bring the whole family together by allowing multiple activities to be going on at once in this shared space. Consider opening up the room so that you and your family can communicate and interact with eachother easily as one person may be cooking, another cleaning, and another relaxing. Open plan kitchens are often at the heart of every family home.

Multi-purpose Seating

Having various different seating areas and types can allow your kitchen to serve multiple purposes as your family grows – from swivel stools that can make interactions and facing conversations easier, to adjustable nooks that bring a more social element into your kitchen – and plenty of easily-moveable furniture for when you want your space to take on a new purpose entirely, such as for parties or special occasions.

Worktops that are easy to maintain

Going for easy-to-clean and easy-to-maintain worktop materials will make clean-up so much easier when day-to-day life gets messy. Choosing a smooth, hard-wearing surface that can simply be wiped down after each meal can save a lot of time and energy with kids running around the house. Consider materials such as granite, quartz or other polished natural stone, that are durable and smooth.

Child Proofing

Installing worktops with rounded edges instead of hard corners will help you to breathe more easily when you have children running around the kitchen, as will adding safety locks and latches on cupboard doors to keep any sharp utensils or cleaning products out of reach. You can also try creating child-friendly nooks, with comfortable seating and toy storage, to make the space more inviting for little ones.

Walk in Pantry

Not only will a walk-in pantry give you more space for food storage, but is perfect for fully organising your family kitchen – and getting the kids involved too. Lower-level shelving, and clearly labelled jars and baskets, can be used to encourage children to get involved with putting the groceries away, and fetching items for meal preparation – and will declutter your counter space.

Fun Touches

Think chalkboard walls that children can entertain themselves with, step stools so that everyone in the family can get involved with meal preparation, and media centres to add some music or TV entertainment to your day.
