Rule Britannia

The British range cooker design is distinguished by its soft shapes and classic colours – often darker colours or details.

A British cooker works best when it can take pride of place in a kitchen scheme; consider pairing a traditional British model with neutral surroundings and simple cabinetry to make it really stand out.

A French affair

These models look great in every colour, from a classic red to icy blue, with a French cooker in your kitchen – no matter the colour – it will stand out. Clear doors with no glass sections give the colour a uniformed appearance, hence the choice of colour is an important component to get right, as it will hugely effect the aesthetic balance in your kitchen.

Italian luxury

The Italian cooker style is all about the details, colours and material. Recognizable by chrome or brass details these cookers gives the whole kitchen a more elegant and luxurious appearance, something that the glass sections in the doors also contribute to.
