Tips to make your kitchen greener
A message from our family to yours
Family is everything and Magnet have spent the last 100 years creating a brand that helps make the most of the time we spend at home around the kitchen with family and friends – it’s where meals and memories are made.
To our new customers, we’re still here to make it all happen
We know that turning the kitchen living space you’ve been dreaming of for so long into reality is one of the most exciting times. And we’re still here to make that happen for you.
While our stores may be closed, our dedicated designers have been set up to work safely from home and can still bring your dream kitchen to life – from wherever you are – call it our virtual showroom.
We can now schedule your Kitchen Home delivery to suit you. However, don't worry if you're not ready to accept delivery now, we’ll only organize delivery when you’re 100% comfortable.

To customers waiting for delivery, let’s get the show on the road
We’d like to start by thanking you for your patience during this present time and to let you know that we have been taking steps towards a safe return to our usual operation.
We are pleased to advise that any pre-arranged deliveries will now be dispatched on your scheduled date. This is a major step and has been influenced by the latest government guidelines for manufacturing and logistics operations.
From us all, we’d like to thank you for being such an important part of our family. Please continue to stay safe and take great care of yourselves and your loved ones. We are in this together and we will get through this together.
Tips to make your kitchen greener
As we become more aware of the impact our lifestyles have on the environment, demand is growing for eco-friendly homes.
There are several benefits to engaging a small green initiative in your home, reducing energy consumption will not only help the environment but save money on your bills too.
The kitchen is a great place to start with an eco-friendly approach as there are many ways to begin. From energy efficient food preparation and clever choices in cleaning products, to using environmentally friendly materials.
At Magnet, we work with Shock, one of the leading manufacturers of sinks worldwide. Shock sinks and taps are all made of durable and ecologically sound materials and manufactured to extremely rigorous standards, so a great choice if you are looking to incorporate eco-friendly materials into your home.
There is always potential in the kitchen to use a lot of appliances at once, so an energy efficient cooker is a great investment. The Rangemaster Professional Plus 100 FX is A-rated for energy efficiency and provides dual fuel cooking in four different colour finishes, so you don’t have to compromise on style.
The kitchen is also guilty of generating the most waste of any room in the home, which is why recycling in the kitchen is key. Make recycling easy for yourself with Magnet’s three-part recycling bin, the separate compartments make light work of sorting your rubbish and tucks away neatly out of sight.
Similarly, collecting food waste is an easy, natural way to recycle and create your own compost. There are great ranges of countertop compost bins for food waste that will complement your kitchen, some are so pretty that they’re a recycling incentive in themselves.
Magnet’s Waste Bin sits neatly in the top of an in-drawer dustbin and is a clever compartment to dispose of food waste. Peelings and cuttings can be subtly scooped into the bin, positioned conventionally just under the worktop surface.
Furthermore, re-use and up-cycle glass jars and even tin cans that you might discard when cooking. These can be made into something decorative and useful such as candleholders or cutlery storage and will make for unique personal touches to your kitchen.
