Creating Beautiful Spaces

When Mark and Clare Johnson were looking for a name for their new kitchens and interiors business 15 years ago, the name of a pretty cove in Jersey sprang to mind - Beauport, meaning beautiful place.  They felt it was the most appropriate name for the business as their desire was to create beautiful places for their clients.

Having visited many of their clients and seen a wide range of the kitchens and interiors projects that they have designed and installed, I have seen so many great examples of the beautiful places they have created and the positive changes these new and innovative spaces have made to their client’s lives.

One key thing that comes up again and again when I interview Beau-Port’s clients is that their new kitchens have changed the way they live - for the better.  Often bringing families closer together as they have a beautiful place to spend time in cooking, eating, entertaining or just simply hanging out together.

Is your hob intelligent enough to recognise all your pans?

The ever rising cost of our utility bills means we are all looking for ways to reduce the amount of energy we use.  Selecting the very best, energy-efficient appliances for customers is high on the list of Beau-Port’s priorities.  Mark Johnson and his team are continually looking for the best latest technologies to incorporate into their kitchen designs.

After extensive research across the appliance market, Mark recognised that the intelligent technologies incorporated into the new Siemens studioLine range, would give Beau-Port clients the largest range of energy efficient benefits.  The studioLine hobs include the innovative full surface induction technology, which allows pans to be positioned anywhere on the hob.  This state of the art automatic pan recognition means that only the area of the hob in contact with the pan is heated - perfect for all those odd-shaped, long and rectangular shaped pots and pans to benefit from even heating and saving on energy costs.

The Siemens studioLine hobs displays the exact position, size and shape of each pan immediately upon contact with the hob on the colour TFT touch screen.  The temperature of each pan is controlled separately, giving total and precise control over the hob.

Siemens have thought of everything, including how easy the hob is to keep clean, right down to the magnetic disc controls that are easy to remove for cleaning.

Beau-Port now sells and installs a range of Siemens studioLine products including these intelligent hobs and also the very latest oven technologies featuring 3D hotAir, temperature probes and more - look out for our follow-up blog on these amazing ovens or come and visit the showroom to see the latest cooking innovations!

Sort, Crush and Store!

Across the world there is a growing need to reduce landfill by recycling plastics, metals, paper and glass.  If you are looking for the neatest way to sort out all your recycling and rubbish, then having it all discreetly tucked away in a drawer close to the kitchen preparation area is a good location.  But it is not only about where you site your waste units but also how good they are in terms of capacity, storage and ease of use.  No one wants to have to take the rubbish out to the wheelie bin too frequently.

I Want One!

I have always wanted a walk in larder and have just seen one that Mark has created for one of our Beau-Port clients.  It is so beautifully crafted and well thought out with a design that can store just about any size of jar, bottle, or package and somewhere to put all those vegetables and fruits that don't need to be put in a fridge.  Often putting certain types of fresh produce into fridges can actually do them more harm than good - mushrooms and bananas are good examples.

Christmas - The Constantly Changing Tradition

Christmas - The Constantly Changing Tradition

Above: Jane Austen's House and Museum at Christmas.

Everything is constantly evolving and nothing ever stays the same – from our use of language to the way we celebrate Christmas.  Today in most homes the kitchen is the hub of activity throughout the year and even more so at Christmas – where everyone wants to gather and if you are lucky, to join in and help with the preparations.

Our Beau-Port showroom is located close to Jane Austen’s House and Museum, and to what was her brother’s home, Chawton House.  Christmas for Jane Austen and her family and friends was a much lower key event than the season we celebrate today.  It had not yet developed into the elaborate festival known to the Victorians and was much more of a religious occasion.
