Incorporating sound into the kitchen
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.
So, if you’re finding yourself marooned at home dreaming of a new kitchen you’ve come to the right place. Book a virtual design appointment with a Magnet designer by clicking on the link below.
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.
Incorporating sound into the kitchen
It’s hard to imagine a world without sound. From communication and signaling to music and entertainment, sound is an integral part of our everyday lives, but have you ever thought about the role sound plays in the kitchen?
From coffee grinding and bacon sizzling, to organising cupboards accompanied by an upbeat soundtrack, the sounds we experience in the kitchen help to shape our moods and can even make everyday chores that little bit more enjoyable!
So with that in mind, we’ve explored all the ways sound affects our lives in the kitchen and makes the room feel more like home.
Take me back
Our senses are an instant way to take us back to some of our fondest memories, and sound is no exception. We all have one song that reminds us of a special someone or a certain sound that suddenly brings back a memory from childhood. Perhaps every time you hear the sound of whisking you can’t help but remember baking with your mum or dad as a child, or hearing the kettle boil evokes all the cosy comfort of a warming cup of hot cocoa?
Entertaining in the kitchen
Just like childhood memories, there are certain kitchen sounds that most of us love to hear as adults. Who doesn’t enjoy the sound of the cork popping on a bottle of wine during a party or the sound of sizzling food when visiting friends for dinner? The kitchen is a major hub for entertainment in our adult lives and the right sounds are vital for shaping the atmosphere of each social gathering. Which brings us on to the final way sound affects the way we feel in the kitchen...
For the love of music
The right kitchen soundtrack will not only set the scene at your next party, but can even turn the washing up into an impromptu karaoke session or sweeping the kitchen floor into a mini dance workout.
Let’s face it, everyone wishes cooking and cleaning could be a little more fun, so why not opt for an inbuilt Sound Plus speaker system in your kitchen? This ingenious gadget fits into the space that is sometimes forgotten in your kitchen, such as the gaps between cabinets, and links up with your tablet or smartphone so your favourite track is just a click away.
In fact, we’ve even put together the perfect kitchen playlist for Spotify, featuring our favourite food and drink themed songs. From American Pie to Red Red Wine, these tasty tracks won’t fail to spice up your next family dinner, cocktail party or baking session.
