Designer and director of Concept & Completion Helen Crouch selects her favourite products from our November issue and explains why they have caught her eye.
“The SmartLine hob, which combines gas and induction, caught me eye as it offers flexibility in fuel choice and has a flat surface, so should be easier to clean than a standard gas hob. I’m thinking of design and practical benefits here.
“My parents have a background in catering, so I know for some recipes gas is preferable, whereas for others electric is a better choice.
“This offers the best of both worlds and, should there be an electrical blackout or the gas supply is shut off, consumers can still cook.”
“I love the Mono aluminium radiators by Vasco which are available in a flat design (Beams) or a profiled option (Bryce).
“There is a choice of 55 colours, but I like the three that are pictured and love the fact that designers can combine models in a variety of finishes and heights.
“It may be more expensive to specify for a customer but they look fantastic.”
“I like the fact Unidrain is offering shower wastes in a choice of finishes with its HighLine Colour series, as frequently designers are restricted to using chrome.
“I like the choice of four colours; Brushed Steel, Copper, Brass and Black.
“I’ve noticed copper is coming through in interior design and it’s a great way to include it in a bathroom scheme.”
