From funky splashbacks, carefully collected décor items collected, wooden tops, beautiful mixers, and, of course, the unique antiqued Milestone Kitchens badges we use on our units - at Milestone Kitchens we know the magic is in the details.

It's in these details that your kitchen truly comes to life. So we encourage you to go ahead, let your creativity run wild! Mix metals, blend textures, choose decorative items to suit your style, and experiment with colors.

We'd love to know – what's your favourite kitchen detail, either one you already have or one you want to add?

With free-standing kitchens, you can mix and match to suit each area's purpose. For example, you could have a stone top around your sink area, a wooden top on your island and a pastry table with a stainless steel top. You do not need meters of continuous stone work surfaces!

With Milestone Kitchens, you can choose from any of these tops for your kitchen: 
๐Ÿชต Pine
๐Ÿชต Black Ofram (New to Milestone Kitchens)
๐Ÿชจ Ash
๐Ÿชจ Granite
๐ŸŽ‹ Bamboo
๐Ÿชจ @eeziquartz 
๐Ÿชจ @caesarstonesa

How GREAT is this example of the FREEDOM OF FREESTANDING!?:

“Hi Sabrina,
We love and enjoy our kitchen so much! I attached some photos for you to see how it turned out.
So I do want to share our experience as a good news story! For some unknown reason I got the dimensions of the one of the walls wrong. I didn't realize the actual length is not the same as on the drawing plans (I actually didn't measure the actual wall during the process, lesson for me!) which resulted in one of the units not fitting into the space where it was designed to fit BUT having standalone units you can play around and change them to fit perfectly and for us the flow is now even better than what we planned and designed for. My Recipe Book Unit didn't fit but I could place it in the living room and its connects the kitchen with the rest of the room, which I love!! So the functionality of the units is awesome! I enjoy every one of the units!

I really enjoyed working with you too from design to delivery it was good and professional and fast! We really love our kitchen and are so happy with how it came out!”

Goodness Ngubane has worked as a painter at Milestone Kitchens since the year 2000 and we are constantly inspired by her. Following is a small piece of her story. 

Goodness comes from a low income background and while we pledge to pay all of our staff a living wage, she has a number of dependents; mother, brother, son, nieces, nephews, and lives in a house without water, far from good schools. Nevertheless, Goodness has continually prioritised and preached the importance of education and she has saved and worked and mothered her only son through a university degree. He now works as a maths and science teacher at a good school in Limpopo. We think that is  an amazing achievement!

She has been the Milestone Kitchens painting team leader for 10 years and is thought of as the mother of the factory because of her nurturing nature.

Did you know that we have a female carpenter at Milestone Kitchens? In fact, when one of our carpenters moved away and we reshuffled the teams a bit there was a bit of dissension among the troupes because everybody wanted Buyi (our female carpenter) on their team because she is the best worker and the easiest to work with.

Did you know Silvia Miles started a furniture business 23 years ago that became this business, Milestone Kitchens, with 3 young kids in tow. While her husband was working full time. What a woman! 

Side bar: You wouldn’t believe how many times she’s been asked which man helped her start this business, yes that blatantly, not "who" helped her, which "man" helped build the first pieces, or with her finances or or... 

Side side bar: LOTS of people helped #grateful, of all genders, but ultimately she started and made this company successful herself.

Milestone Kitchens started as a three-person team back in 1999, operating from Silvia Miles' very own garage!

1. Over the years, that garage has transformed into a massive 650 square meter factory, where innovation and craftsmanship come to life!
2. Not only has Milestone Kitchens grown in size, but it has also grown in heart by providing employment and training opportunities to up to 30 people from our local community.

See how the staff have grown and changed through the years. Can you spot anyone who’s in all of the photos?

Throw back to when we branched out and photographed the African Allure bar counter out in 'neigh'-ture. The bar was really meant to stand-out but Soraya ended being the 'mane' attraction.

What a time we’ve been having in the day care lately! We have been tending to our plants, preparing healthy food and creating pieces of art work with the kind of skill and precision that Picasso could only dream of (swipe for evidence). It’s a hard job, but someone has to do it!   

In other exciting news, we are currently fundraising to build a brand new day care space on Milestone Farm. We’re so excited to be able to provide even better early education for the kids in our community.

This is to put your dirty laundry in. Agreed. But what we really like about it is that it makes a great stool. Sometimes you just need to sit in your bathroom. You know, while you get your wits about yourself.

Or should you have too many guests in your home and not enough seating. Just go and get the laundry basket (might have to remove the dirty laundry at this stage) and shove it under the dining room table. Voilà.

Yes so this is how I work every day… in my MK Raw Range kitchen. I sit with excellent posture and Maya sits perfectly still, like a model, and she’s always shiny and clean. My sink has zero dishes and I always have this cute tea pot. I drink tea and not coffee because it’s better for my health. There’s only ever one mug on the counter because I wash my mugs immediately and put them back on my solidwood coffee dresser. I make notes on just one book in front of me, no pieces of paper scattered about, and sometimes I turn around and watch the pigs flying outside my window.

Pendent lights above your freestanding kitchen island are always a good idea! There are so many pendant lights available from various home and décor shops, so it can be a bit overwhelming. Here are some tips to help you decide. 

๐Ÿ’ก Start by looking at pictures on Pinterest/google/MK Gallery and take note of what you like and don't like. Or swipe through some of the pics above!

๐Ÿ’ก Size: Consider the size of your Island and the number of pendant lights you need to provide enough light. Odd numbers usually look better so 1 light or 3 lights in an island between 1600 and 2100mm long, longer than that and you could even go with 5 lights!

๐Ÿ’ก Consider putting up the lights after your freestanding island has been moved in so that you have the option to change the positioning of the island until you know exactly where you want it.

๐Ÿ’ก Style: Choose a light that complements the style of your kitchen and home. Don't be scared to go funky! This is functional an area of your décor where you can choose to make a statement or do something different without buying a décor item that isn't "used" for anything - you use your lights every day so you can be adventurous without feeling like you are wasting money.
 
๐Ÿ’ก Height: Consider the height of your ceiling when choosing a pendant. You do not want the pendant hanging too low and getting in the way.

๐Ÿ’ก Colour: Choose a colour that complements the rest of your kitchen.

Save this post for when you upgrade your kitchen!

Most people compare our prices to chipboard or melamine kitchens and come to the conclusion that we are expensive, but if you compare our units with other QUALITY, solid wood (we do not use melamine or chipboard), kitchen companies, you will find that with Milestone Kitchens you pay as little as half as much as you would for a fitted solid-wood kitchen. We offer excellent value for money when it comes to solid wood kitchens. 

We challenge you to do the homework, get other quotes and compare. But remember to compare with SOLID WOOD kitchens and not your standard melamine and chipboard ones.

Have you met Phindile? If not, you’re making at least 1 mistake… you haven’t visited Milestone Kitchens gorgeous showroom at 52 6th street in Parkhurst, JHB.

Phindile is our Showroom Manager. She runs the showroom in Parkhurst, Johannesburg. She is in charge of all things showroom-y: stock lists, sales reports, deliveries, quotation requests, enquiries, the showroom layout, managing the other showroom staff and more. Her favourite part of her job is liaising with clients in-store about colours, tops options, handles and other design details for their Milestone kitchen.

Phindile is stylish and beautiful and practical - just like our kitchens ๐Ÿ˜. She has such a dry sense of humour we sometimes have no idea if she’s joking or not! We often wish she wasn’t based in a different city, not only because of the aforementioned sense of humour but also because she is super efficient and hard working. Phindile has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration, and has her eyes on a course in digital marketing. Milestone Kitchens hopes to support her in this journey.
 
What have we established? whether to meet the wonderful Phindile or to see our units, you SHOULD visit our showroom.

We LOVE IT when clients do a bit of mixing and matching. Not everything has to be the same! We are making this kitchen as I type this - 
French Flair range painted in a mix of Aged Cream and Dusted Moss, with a mix of blonde Ash and medium Ash tops and a mix of plinth and castors for the base construction. 

Can not wait to show you the final product.

This is a kitchen we shot with Ideas Magazine a couple of years ago. We were recently reminded of it when a client sent this pic to us as “inspo”… pink is sooooo trendy right now so we thought we’d share it with you again. 

Don’t be scared to be daring with colour!

SO many of you ask what our Swedish Style looks like in aged cream (the standard color for our French Flair range)… well, behold!

Also - how cool is the chandelier?

Note: all of our standard colours are interchangeable between ranges at no extra cost.

The Raw Range mixes beautifully with our premium ranges... if you really want a solid wood freestanding kitchen but your budget won't allow for it, why not consider a mix of our new and more affordable Raw Range and the African Allure, French Flair or Swedish Style range? 

Pictured here is a Swedish Style Baby Island in pink and a Swedish Style Grocery Cupboard (in the back) with most of the Raw Range 7 Piece Starter Set Special. 

This kitchen is in our Cape Town Sales Warehouse and available immediately. Find it at๐Ÿ“6 Ravenscraig Road, Woodstock, Cape Town.

Hey everyone! Sabrina here, we've been busy setting some pretty exciting goals for 2023. And I just can't wait to share a few of them with you all!

First up, we are launching our brand new online kitchen planner WebApp. This will make it easy for you to design your dream freestanding kitchen. We can't wait for you to try it out! It should be up and running by the end of February. 

Next, we're creating a more in-depth recycling system for our factory waste. We care about the environment and our beautiful country, and we're always looking for ways to be more sustainable.

This year in the digital world, we're aiming to reach 10k followers on Instagram. So spread the love people! We love connecting with all of you and sharing our beautiful kitchens with the world. Silvia and I also plan to be brave and increase our face time on Instagram. Our business is small and you get that personal touch with us so its important that you can see that on our socials. We also want you all to see our amazing staff and get to know them better - we aim to tell you more of their stories. 

This year for Milestone Smalls we’re creating a wedding registry option... so if your big day or a friend’s is coming up consider sustainable locally-made wedding gifts and have a look at milestonesmalls.co.za

We're also planning to continue building our new storage facility. This is something we are doing ourselves if and when we have time - It is going to be a game changer for us. The plan is to have it complete by the end of 2024.

And finally, we have our eyes on a few courses for our staff, upskilling and educating our staff is very important to us. Not only do we want to make sure our service and product are the best but we also want to do our bit to create a better future for South Africans.

So there you have it. We've got a lot planned for 2023, and its already underway! Thank you for your continued support, and we can't wait to see what the future holds for Milestone Kitchens โค๏ธ.

Despite the challenges that load-shedding provides us, we have big plans and we look forward to continuing to create beautiful freestanding kitchens and educational and inspirational kitchen content.

Let me introduce you (or re-introduce if you been supporting us since Jan 2021) to Silvia Miles. 

Official Title: Creative Director

What she’s doing when she’s not at work: Teaching or step aerobics and rebounding classes.

Silvia is the founder of Milestone Kitchens. She started Milestone furniture in 2001 and then saw a need and specialised in freestanding kitchens in 2010. She handed the managerial reins over to her daughter Sabrina in 2020 but is still part of the business in a creative capacity (i.e. she does the fun stuff). 

Silvia has a gift for making spaces beautiful, she is also a mother and an excellent coo - this combination has (rather effectively I’d say) translated into an expert ability to design practical and beautiful furniture for kitchens and spaces, and evolved Milestone Kitchens into what it is today.

Silvia has a BA degree in painting and geography (cum laude I’ll have you know) with honours in painting, and her PGCE. The PGCE has been really useful for the day care program we run for our staff kids. The rest of her qualifications… Well we are still not sure what they have to do with freestanding kitchens, but we do know she is a damn good kitchen designer!

As part of the HOW TO STYLE YOUR KITCHEN masterclass we hosted on Saturday Silvia “dressed” the green kitchen in our front of shop at 52 6th street, Parkhurst, Randburg. We’ll share some of her tips over the next few weeks - stay tuned! 

This entire kitchen is actually up for auction. There are 9 pieces with solid ash tops and it is suitable for a medium to large kitchen. Click here to contact us to place your bid!

Haaaave you met Sam? 

You don’t see much of Sam on our social media - that’s because she’s pretty quiet and usually oblivious to the outside world, lost in the design world behind her 2 screens (she’d have 6 if we’d let her but we actually like seeing her face in the office).

Sam is a huge part of what happens behind the scenes at Milestone Kitchens. Her main job is to create 2D and 3D kitchen designs and quotes for potential clients, but because we are a small company she does lots of other stuff too! Sometimes she is on the factory floor quality checking, sometimes she is designing magazine or social media ads, sometimes she is doing fancy computer stuff in the “back end“ of our website (wherever that is…?), sometimes she’s loading a truck, figuring out what happened to Bryan’s tape measure or working on our BRAND NEW kitchen planner #comingsoon #staytuned.

Sam is hard-working and determined, and not only in her job - she only ever misses one of Silvia’s step or rebounding classes if she has a million 3D layouts to do in a day. 

Sam’s official title is Multimedia Designer and she has a BA degree in Visual Communications. Milestone Kitchens has become waaaay more “21st century” since Sam joined us. She has been with us for almost 3 years and is now an integral part of the team. We are so proud of everything she has achieved for Milestone Kitchens thus far!

DID YOU KNOW that all of our floor units have a 100mm "splash back" at the back of the top, this splash back sits flush against the wall and overhangs the unit by10 to 15mm so that if your walls are not perfectly straight or you have a skirting running along the floor it doesn't cause a big gap between the wall and the splash back. 

Side bar: How gorgeous is the grain and colour on this Ash top? ๐Ÿ˜

This was the front-of-shop kitchen we had in Joburg prior to the one in there now. Every couple of months we auction off our front-of-shop kitchen, consider it an INSTANT kitchen!

This client added on a few units in Aged Cream - oh the freedom of free-standing! Pics of the scullery coming soon…

Milestone Kitchens is starting a small day care for pre-school children (aged 0-5) of Milestone Kitchens employees and their family members. While our staff members work full-time at the factory (almost all of them as primary bread winners of large families), many of their children are looked after by friends and family. Access to high-quality childcare is limited, and some parents only see their children on weekends. 

We are motivated by tonnes of research highlighting the importance of quality early years developmental care, and how it can shape the trajectory of a child's holistic development and build a strong foundation for their future.
Our mission: we’re in the business of improving access to early childhood developmental care for the children in our community. 

Our vision: we want to build a community that is focused on working together to improve outcomes for its tiniest members.
We are so excited to begin this project, but we are a small business and need a little help here and there. We know that every South African with the means to improve the lives of those less fortunate than themselves are doing so in some way, big or small - this is the nature of our beautiful country! So, no expectations, but if you have the capacity to contribute any of the following things, please get in touch! We are looking for:

๐Ÿ‘ผOld toys catching dust
๐Ÿ‘ผBalls for throwing or kicking
๐Ÿ‘ผChildren's books catching dust
๐Ÿ‘ผStationary 
๐Ÿ‘ผColouring books
๐Ÿ‘ผOld pots or cooking utensils
๐Ÿ‘ผVeggies from your garden 
๐Ÿ‘ผNon-perishable foods

I do love African Allure units with dark-stained based. Our African Allure range is unique, there’s not another kitchen style that you can call similar. These are kitchen units with a bold, masculine look. This range is textured so that no two pieces are the same, and it’s painted in a way that only our special painting team at Milestone Kitchens Factory knows how to do.

Meet Zibusizo, known to us as Mr Boogy (for reasons he won’t disclose๐Ÿ•บ…) or Z. Mr Boogy joined our Johannesburg showroom (at 52 6th Street, Parkhurst, Randburg) about 3 months ago. He keeps the garden looking gorgeous, cleans the showroom, makes the windows sparkly, repaints the walls at every given opportunity and does any other hand work required. He takes pride in his work and always puts his best foot forward, and always does an amazing job - we are all huge fans! 

Z works for us part time so if anyone around Johannesburg is looking for part-time help in the garden, paint work or similar, please get in touch with us and we’ll give you his contact details.
We have a few more new additions to the Milestone Kitchens staff and we are looking forward to introducing them all to you.

So, we launched the Raw Range at the ECR House & Garden show last week, and we’re finally finally able to show it to you all on Social Media - whoop whoop! 

We’ve been working on the Raw Range for almost a year now. The aim with this range is to make free-standing kitchens more accessible to everyone by making them more affordable. The 7 Piece Starter Set Special in the Raw Range goes for R30 000 + VAT.

Such EXCITING news!
 
As many of you know we have been working on an economical range for the past year. This range is designed for people starting out, who love freestanding kitchens but can't afford units from our premium ranges. It is called the RAW RANGE and we are launching at the ECR House & Garden Show 2022. #hgshow2022 

The Raw Range includes simple units available in a number different sizes. It is not painted or customisable. It is lightly sealed, and made entirely from solid wood. It matches beautifully with our other ranges so if you would like to include custom units with custom sizing you can simply choose units from our other ranges.
 
Want to see it? Visit us at the ECR House & Garden Show at the Durban Exhibition Center between June 24th and July 3rd.

Cleaning and maintaining your free-standing kitchen is significantly easier than in a fitted kitchen. The units can be moved away from the wall for cleaning and to repair appliances or leaks. You can even get your units on wheels!

There are no unnecessary linings and cover strips covering the gaps between the units and each other or the walls and floor where rats, cockroaches and other vermin nest.


Hygiene and Maintenance

09 June 2022

On to our final point - and probably the most obvious advantage of free-standing kitchens is the ease of hygiene and maintenance. 

Got a leak in your plumbing? No need to rip up your cupboards to get to it, simply disconnect the plumbing move the unit forward and fix it. 

Cleaning behind your units is very easy, simply move them forward and do what you must. 
An electrical problem with your oven? Your electrician doesn't need to bring 4 people to get the oven out, simply move the unit forward. 

Prioritize practicality! Not only does practicality make your life easier, it is also a total trend at the moment.

Another way to save costs with Milestone Kitchens is that you can get yourself a solid wood high-end kitchen without using an expensive interior designer to put it together for you. 

You can: 
1 - Design the kitchen yourself using our online kitchen planner. 
2 - Ask us to design (it in conjunction with you) and provide you with a 2D layout, or 
3 - Ask us to design (it in conjunction with you) and provide you with a 3D layout.

With Milestone Kitchens freestanding kitchens units you aren’t spending loads on a beautiful hand-crafted kitchen that you have to leave behind. Move house, take your kitchen with you!

30 May 2022

Another tip for saving costs on your dream kitchen - get your units with solid Pine tops, they are much more affordable than Ash, stone, bamboo or stainless steel and the great thing about Pine is that it is relatively soft and easy to work with so you can always upgrade to Ash, stone or any other top at a later stage, when your budget allows for it. Freestanding units make this an easy and accessible option.

Saving costs on your dream kitchen

29 May 2022

We've shown you this video before and we're showing it to you again so that you can see how easy it is to move a freestanding Milestone Kitchen in (and therefore out) - think of it as an INVESTMENT, you don't need to spend loads of your savings on your kitchen and then have to leave it behind when you move? NOPE, take your kitchen units with you when you move home - Milestone Kitchens units are for life.

27 May 2022

A fitted kitchen needs to be constructed all at once - this can be a huge capital outlay for you.

With Milestone’s free-standing units system, you can buy units and improve your kitchen piece by piece as your budget allows, avoiding the hit of a full kitchen renovation all at once. 

Stay tuned for more on this topic.

We've been very busy at the factory and working on our new sales outlet in Cape Town (6 Ravenscraig road, Woodstock), and our new range (the Raw Range - launching at ECR House and Garden Show in late June) but we're back to tell you more about WHY FREESTANDING KITCHENS ARE THE BEST. Get excited ๐Ÿ˜.

If you're unsure about designing your freestanding kitchen yourself (using our comprehensive list of units), our Design Team can do it for you, remotely, and you can walk through your "theoretical" kitchen in 3D! 

This is also a great option if you know what you want but want to see it before you order it.

A fitted kitchen is partially completed in a workshop, then it is delivered in pieces to your home where it is assembled on site in your kitchen space.

Milestone Kitchens units are made in our factory and then delivered to your home fully constructed and complete; ready to be used.

If you would like to save even more costs you may fetch the kitchen from our factory yourself.

A fitted kitchen then needs to be installed by experts.

A free-standing kitchen does not have to be installed by experts. The units are simply placed in position by you with minimal aid from tradespeople.

Those who are willing, may save even more costs by attempting the plumbing and electrical work themselves.

Today it is common practice for architects to draw a fitted kitchen for each house. Once the design is approved by you it goes to a workshop and the kitchen is built to a point where it can be transported and assembled in your kitchen space. The whole process can be quite long from discussion, to measure up, design and construction, delivery and eventual assembly by specialist tradesmen in your kitchen space. All this before you can see and examine the kitchen in its finished form.

In contrast, our Milestone Kitchens free-standing kitchen range is on display on our website and in our showroom, where the full range of units designed for all your kitchen needs are shown. The units are shown in a number of different styles and colours for you to pick what suits you best. You choose your units and your design preferences, place your order online, and we manufacture your kitchen in our factory. Approximately six weeks later your fully assembled units are delivered to your home, and ready for you to arrange them in your space. You might need the help of a plumber or electrician, but that is all!

Avoid the shops, and avoid having loads of tradesmen and strangers in your home by ordering your kitchen online.

You can order your freestanding kitchen on your own, from the comfort of your home. You don't need a ton of tradesmen in your house fitting your kitchen, you just move them into your house, ready to use.

Milestone Kitchens freestanding units are each personally checked throughout the design process by owners and directors Sabrina and Silvia. Our construction process includes that personal touch ๐Ÿ˜‰.

Self-supported

27 April 2022

A sneaky summary on why the construction of our free-standing kitchen units should compel you to invest in a free-standing kitchen.

26 April 2022

Free-standing kitchens are made up of self-supported, movable, mobile units that arrive at your house complete and ready for placement.

We often feel that practicality is a totally under-rated aesthetic. When something looks practical and solid, it looks good. Free-standing units have gaps between them, there are no hidden, unused spaces where somebody has tried to hide joins with cover strips and linings, you can SEE how the unit holds itself up. You can see all the spaces so there is nowhere for a rat or cockroach to hide. Every piece makes perfect sense to the layman's eye. This practical look make your kitchen look BEAUTIFUL.

How to style your freestanding kitchen

24 April 2022

Milestone Kitchens freestanding kitchen units are made primarily of solid wood. Wood is an unpredictable, natural product that can move and change shape BUT it is always solid, sturdy, durable and beautiful.

Solid Wood Construction

23 April 2022

Something that really seems to appeal to people about free-standing kitchens is that the units HOLD THEMSLEVES UP. They don't need the support of the walls to stand up. They are stand-alone pieces of furniture that you can take with you when you move house. 

Over the next few days we will be discussing the construction of our freestanding units and highlight some of the reasons why you should to choose to go with Milestone Kitchens in particular.

This client originally had a few French Flair units in our standard colour, Aged Cream, when they needed a change they bought a few more units and repainted them. 

If that’s not creative freedom I don’t know what is!

CREATIVE FREEDOM

20 April 2022

You are free to choose different working surfaces, base constructions and colours, all in one kitchen. 

In this kitchen you can see stainless steel tops, wooden tops and Caesarstone tops, with both castors and legs all in the same space. And it looks great!

18 April 2022

CREATIVE FREEDOM:

Want to change your floors? You don't have to rip up your whole kitchen to do it, just move your freestanding units units out the way. 

Our self-supported, stand alone, movable units give you the freedom to update your kitchen one step at a time without huge investment all at once.

Love that vintage dresser from your grandmother? Do you have a beautiful piece of furniture you made yourself and want to use? With free-standing units you can totally incorporate these special pieces into your kitchen.

We call it... CREATIVE FREEDOM.

Do you, or does someone in your family love to build, create and make? Is your house not big enough for a workshop? Do you store tools under your sink or in your wardrobe or under the stairs? Is your house big enough for a workshop but you fancy a neat/stylish way of storing your tools? Perhaps you aren’t even a big/hugely enthusiastic carpenter but you like to keep some tools for special occasions?
Answer ‘yes' to any of these questions and Milestone Kitchens has got you covered.

I mean, if there’s one thing we have a lot of, it’s tools! We’re always looking for better, neater and more effective ways to store them.

The Milestone Kitchens team has designed the attractively practical Workshop in a Cupboard to create storage for all of your building, carpentry and other DIY needs.

Thick, chunky and rustic enough to elegantly absorb any dents or scratches, the Workshop in a Cupboard includes a thick wooden working top, peg boards to hang tools, shelves with a lip so that loose screws and drill bits don’t roll out and drawers for your tools and extension cords.

Strip lighting can be included.

Concept: "an idea of something formed by mentally combining all its characteristics or particulars; a construct".

Milestone Kitchens Concept Cupboards thus take the idea of something and put it, in it’s entirety, into a cupboard.

Check them out on our latest posts and let us know what you think!?

If you have ever had an unwelcome explosion of fabric, pins, patterns, threads, bobbins, brushes, scissors, string, buttons and tape all over your desk, floor or dining room table while pursuing your favourite hobby then Milestone Kitchens latest design is for you.

With Milestone Kitchen's new Craft Cupboard, you are able to take a step back from your project, close your cupboard doors and have your space transformed into a neat uncluttered area in seconds.

The beautifully designed Craft Cupboard is the solution we have designed for keeping your sewing, craft or hobby space neat and practical AND pretty. Although the cupboard was designed specifically for sewing, it lends itself well to all forms of arts and crafts. We can customise it to suit whatever it is that tickles your creative fancy.

What’s stopping you? Everyone needs one of these. Order yours now!

Perhaps your house is not big enough for a laundry and you can never find a place for all your housekeeping stuff. No problem, Milestone Kitchens has a simple solution for you. We offer you a cupboard that can house your washing machine, vacuum cleaner, broom, ironing board, iron, detergents, buckets and whatever other equipment you deem necessary for housekeeping that haven’t got their own space. All this can be stored in one compact space behind Milestone Kitchens stylish cupboard doors - in your House Keeping Cupboard.

You have the freedom to place your House Keeping cupboard anywhere, it doesn’t have to be in a ‘laundry room’ because, you might not have one of those anyway. And it looks great too so it does not have to be ‘out of the way’.

Milestone Kitchens House Keeping Cupboard’s dimensions are 1400mm wide x 650mm deep x 2100mm high. It is available in all three of our ranges, the African Allure, French Flair it Swedish Style in their standard colours or as a customised unit to suit your space and colour scheme.

Milestone Kitchens innovative Kitchen in a Cupboard is the perfect all in one solution for modern, easy living in small spaces.

The world is changing and so is the kitchen, as we know it. Space comes at a premium, in some packed cities apartments are being built without any kitchens at all. Today's living is all about modernising, minimising and simplifying. People are eating out more. Restaurants are better, 

good 'fast food' is more easily accessible, and takeaways and home delivery meals are becoming increasingly popular.
This is why Milestone Kitchens developed the Kitchen in a Cupboard (KIAC) - a compact, all-in-one solution. The KIAC is great for young couples with small homes, or retirees looking to scale down. It's also fantastic for B&Bs, holiday flats, bachelor pads, studio apartments or small beach cottages.

Pair it with a small table or an extra-small Mini-Centre island for seating, and you can even entertain guests. Once they’ve left simply close the doors and the Kitchen in a Cupboard transforms into a tidy, out of the way package with the appearance of an elegant cupboard. Put it in the lounge, dining room, or entertainment area. It's less expensive than a full-size kitchen and far more functional than an ordinary cupboard.

You may choose your Kitchen in a Cupboard in one of our three ranges, African Allure, French Flair or Swedish Style. You can also choose your own colour - just send us a paint code for your choice of colour and we'll make it happen.

Is your office space encroaching on your chill space? Is it taking over your room or dining room? With Milestone Kitchens Office in a Cupboard you can close the door on it, take a deep breath and relax when you are don’t for the day, all you need to do is stand up, tuck your chair in and close your KINK doors. Out of sight, out of mind.
 
The ergonomical desk design allows for an eye level screen, it has plenty of shelving designed for textbooks, files, paper and even the ever necessary tea pot. There is a slide out shelf for a printer, drawers for your stationary, important papers or that sneaky slab of chocolate you need to keep you going. We know how annoying it can be when there are cables all over your desk, so we have also included a cable hole in the desk to keep them out of your way.

The Seven Piece Starter Set Special (7PSSS) has been very carefully structured to give you all the items you will need for a medium to large kitchen. You are getting a very good deal because you are you saving R10 853 on the original cost of the units if you had to add them up individually. 

We have a 7PSSS available in each of our ranges AT ALL TIMES. We also still have a further discounted 7PSSS available in Swedish Style (because of it's working but wonky handles).

It's 2022 and we've hit the ground running.

I love writing stuff down and making lists. It makes me feel more intentional (#buzzword). At the beginning of every year I spend time (too much, probably) chatting to my friends, family and partner about our goals for the year, its possibly annoying sometimes (#lovemeforme) but it also helps me to remember what the plan is and keep on track, and it gives me accountability. So that those goals aren't just words. 

Of course, I always write down MK's goals for the year at the beginning of the year. Writing them down makes them real! I then break the goals down into small steps and sometimes assign each step to different months/weeks/days of the year. Call me Methodical Miles if you want. We didn't do everything we set out to do last year, but we also did some pretty cool things we didn't set out to do and also (thankfully) many of the things we did, see 2 posts back if interested. In the interests of being intentional and having accountability I thought I'd tell you some of our goals for 2022:

โญ Open a showroom/Warehouse in Cape Town.
โญ Hit 10 000 followers on Instagram (okay okay yes so there's an exterior motive in telling you this one, please like share and save!).
โญ Release our new, more economical range (currently in development).
โญ Complete training for another head carpenter (as head of the new range).
โญ Start training for 2 new assistant carpenters.
โญ Update our online kitchen planner. 
โญ Get some recycling bins and a recycling system running at MK Factory.
โญ Try again next year if we don't get it all done. 

We'd love to hear one of your goals for this year or the next few years, or this week (we all work in different ways). Be it to paint your bedroom wall or redecorate your whole house. Let us know one of your plans in the comments.

And that's a wrap for our last day of 2021 โญ.

It was a busy, productive and eventful year. Here's a few things we gained: 
 - Solar Panels!!! 
 - 2 new employees, Nathi and Wonder. 
 - One baby, Hlengiwe. 
 - One tiny little doggie, Pops.
 - We officially opened our new showroom in Parkhurst, Johannesburg. 
 - We launched Milestone Smalls (remember you get a 20% discount with coupon code christmas20 on milestonesmalls.co.za).
 - 50 sterilised dogs in Mpolweni (if you would like to donate to our backabuddy fund so that we can sterilise more, you can do so here: backabuddy.co.za/champion/project/mpolweni-dog-project)
 - We designed and launched the Craft Cupboard 
 - We designed and launched  the Workshop In a Cupboard. 
 - We launched our first Corner Wall Units.
 - We developed a new kitchen range (get excited for the big reveal next year ๐Ÿ˜ฑ). 
 - A really cute staff photo.

This client bought a kitchen for her mom and to keep it more affordable chose to go with our standard 7 Piece Starter set Special for her kitchen. We think she has done a wonderful job and these pictures perfectly illustrate the freedom you have with freestanding units - everything doesn't have to fit perfectly together!

P.s. They painted that splashback themselves - how awesome!?

The Seven Piece Starter Set Special (7PSSS) units have been very carefully chosen to fit an average medium to large kitchen. We have selected the units that we feel are the most necessary and useful in a kitchen. This set of 7 units comes at R64000 (excl. VAT) this is R10 853 less than if you bought the units individually. If your kitchen is too small for all these units you may decrease the size of your units at no extra cost. Remember though, if you find you have too many units, they are very versatile and can be used anywhere in the house. For example, the Grocery Cupboard could be used as a linen cupboard or the Double Door Unit could be used as a vanity in the bathroom.

1 - The Sink Unit with space for dishwasher: 1800 mm wide x 600 mm deep x 900 mm high
2 - The Cutlery Server: 1800 mm wide x 600 mm deep x 900 mm high
3 - The Double Door Unit: 900 mm wide x 600 mm deep x 900 mm high
4 - The Wall Unit: 900 mm wide x 300 mm deep x 900 mm high
5 - The Grocery Cupboard: 900 mm wide x 600 mm deep x 2100 mm high
6 - The Coffee Dresser: 900 mm wide x 600 mm deep x 2100 mm high
7 - The Spice Rack: 740 mm wide x 140 mm deep x 1080 mm high (780 mm high for Swedish Style only)

The special price includes Pine tops and painting in one of our standard colours. Changing the colour to a colour of your choice will cost an additional 10%. There is no 5% deduction for taking units without the tops on the 7PSSS like there is with a normal order. Should you wish to change the type of top you would like, we will quote you accordingly for the top of your choice.

The 7PSSS is available in all 3 ranges, on legs, castors or plinths and with your choice of handles and colour from our standard ranges.

We're offering a very limited extra discount on our 7 Piece Starter Set Specials... We have one 7PSSS in each range in stock going for an extra R4 600 off (on top of the R10 850 the set is already discounted).

We are selling each of these sets at R60 000 - the only catch is that you need to make payment before the 22nd of December, when we come back in the new year, these sets will no longer be available with that extra R4600 discount.

Check out our post later today and tomorrow for more info on the 7PSSS.

Feeling so proud ๐Ÿฅฐ. Look at this wonderful message we received from a client:

"Hi Silvia and Sabrina,

What a pleasant experience with the ordering of my unit, from start to finish the level of customer service and care was excellent!

Nomonde is so professional, communicates well and kept me up to date throughout the production process. What an asset Nomonde is to your team!

We were also so touched by the gift given to us and the personalised letter - you ladies certainly know how to add value!

I am in the business skills training industry and have travelled the country training many groups on a variety of skills, with customer service being a favourite for many. Many companies can take a leaf out of your book and could learn a lot from Nomonde too.

Once again, thanks for running a personalised business, which adds much value to your clients! Impressive!"

So here is a public appreciation post for Nomonde (or Mondelicious), our Production Administrator โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ.

The kitchen had a difficult L-Shaped space to plan but it worked out perfectly! We think the banquette seating is a real win.

French Flair,
in Soft White,
on legs,
with blonde Pine tops,
and a stainless steel top on the sink Unit.
It makes such a huge difference being able to visualize the space in 3D before beginning production๐Ÿคฉ.

"Details are the difference between good stuff and great stuff." - I'm not sure who said this but we love it! Some close-ups of "the details" shown here for you.

We made this African Allure kitchen in Graphite Black, distressed, on castors, for the big glass shop window in our showroom in Parkhurst. We thought we'd take a couple of photos on the factory floor just to show you that a Milestone Kitchen can create a kitchen ANYWHERE. It took us less than an hour to put this one in place.

Feedback we received at an expo on our Office in a Cupboard... Swipe right for pics of the product.

Houses and apartments are becoming smaller, people are working from home more and more and thus the need to have an elegant, compact solution to your office space is becoming more pressing. Hence, our Office in a Cupboard concept was born.

Milestone Kitchens’ Office in a Cupboard or KINK (Kantoor in ‘n Kas) keeps all your work and office paraphernalia in a neat, compact cupboard so that when you need a break or are done for the day, all you need to do is stand up, tuck your chair in and close your KINK doors. Out of sight, out of mind!

If you haven't seen it yet we'd love to hear your thoughts?

Hi All, Sabrina here again.

I am getting into this 6 week check-in thing. It's like President Ramaphosa - once you start with addressing your people, you get hooked ๐Ÿ˜‰.

I wanted to do a bit of an appreciation post for Silvia Miles (my mom). Silvia, the founder, owner and creative genius behind our wonderful brand took a step back from running Milestone Kitchens 2 years ago and I took over. But FLIP it's been a crazy couple of months (slash years) and boy AM I GLAD she's still jogs up to factory regularly with her 3 dogs in tow...

Dealing with frequent load shedding, theft, violent protests and burning farms around us, amidst a double recession, and a global pandemic, has not been easy and sometimes small, obvious things slip through the radar. And I am just so so so so so glad that Mom Miles, with all of her infinite wisdom and firm support, has been around to catch the bits and pieces that fall through the cracks every now and then.

Thanks Mom,
Sabrina xxx

This room was 100% empty in the morning and had a full kitchen set up by noon.

With Milestone Kitchens freestanding kitchen units you avoid having strangers in your home (and the risk of and world-changing viruses). You don’t have to deal with a trail of kitchen consultants and tradesmen in your home because you can order your kitchen online, and your units arrive FULLY SELF-SUPPORTED and READY FOR PLACEMENT. You can do the entire installation yourself.

We filmed the "installation" of this kitchen - looking forward to sharing it with you soon!

For many people freestanding kitchens are a foreign concept and while it’s easy to figure out the advantages of freestanding kitchens (creative freedom, hygiene, cost [buy with your budget], movability, buy online, construction, and and and...), it’s difficult to actually VISUALISE a freestanding kitchen if you haven’t seen one before.

With Milestone Kitchens new 3D designs you can plan and visualise your dream kitchen.

Pops, also affectionately known around the factory as Gundane is a fully grown dog Silvia kept seeing at the SPCA during visits there for the Mpowleni Dog Project (our project in collab with PMB SPCA to sterilise dogs in Mpowleni - please donate!), he was there for months and months and eventually she brought him home. His food costs her a whopping R12 a month!

Pops/Gundane loves the whole Milestone Team, and visa versa.

Looking forward to showing you pics of him in our new dog beds (don't worry - there is an extra small size).

Okay people we have a FABULOUS special up for grabs!

Sadly, we've lost a number of suppliers due to the global pandemic, and then more suppliers due to the looting and unrest in KZN.

BUT there is some light at the end of the tunnel... In the process of finding good quality silver ring pull suppliers we received a wonky batch of handles and we used these handles on a 7 Piece Starter Set - so we're giving you a BIG DISCOUNT!

This set, with these wonky handles, is available at a  R19 956 discount. i.e. the full set will be R66 240 (incl. VAT).

You are welcome to contact us on 082 891 1719 or 076 949 5745 for more pics or info.

DISTRESSING ON DARK UNITS

Usually a distressed finished means that your units are stained on the edges, painted over in white/cream/any light colour and then the edges are lightly sanded down so that the dark stain shows. On units painted in a dark colour we skip the stain part and sand down the edges so that the raw wood is revealed. 

Why do we like distressing? 

 - because it gives your kitchen a softer feel, 
 - because distressed units handle wear and tear extremely well. 
 - because a bit of dirt or a scratch here and there actually enhances the look.
 - because it's different!

But of course, we also can also flat-paint your units (i.e. zero distressing) and that looks great too!

These are the same units used in 2 different kitchens for 2 different kitchens!

In the first kitchen the Grocery Cupboard is used as a linen cupboard elsewhere in the house.

So basically you can move house but keep your kitchen! 
Pretty cool huh?

Feedback FSaturday. Yay for great client feedback!

This one was from clients in Florida to Sam. They couldn't believe how easy it is to design a kitchen remotely.

We've always been hesitant about filling up your kitchen corners with wall units, and especially tall units! It's just so hard to make units like that fit the freestanding kitchen look and ethos, but we think we've made it happen with our new Corner Wall Unit! 

We promised a profesh pic of this unit a few weeks ago and here it is:
African Allure, in Graphite Black, with distressed edges and Antique Cup Handles. 

The Swedish Style version coming soon.

Design Trend 6: Rounded Shapes

A circle can't "fall over" kind of makes it seemed balanced hey? That's how we feel about rounded shapes in decor - they feel balanced.

You always want balance right? Throughout your life... in your work (not toooo much tough stuff, but not too much easy stuff either!), balance in your relationships (please, if you're both working then surely you're both doing the domestic stuff!), balance in your food (anyone else LOVE Masterchef?)... and of course, balance in your home decor.

We've shown some examples of how you can use curves to calm those nerves above:
1 - Round coffee tables and lights.
2 - A round table in a kitchen.
3 - A couple of curvy stools and a clock in a kitchen.
4 - Round bowls/plates in a dresser.
5 - Jars.
6 - A round mat/rug.
7 - Round lights.
What else can you think of?

Design Trend 6: Rounded Shapes

This is such an interesting new trend!

Living spaces that have only sharp edges and lines can create a sense inflexibility. As carpenters we might find it hard to accept the premise that too much order is a bad thing - but it can be! One needs to feel as if they have that emotional wiggle room. After what the last few weeks year and a half has been like it's no surprise this trend is so big!

Rounded shapes are connected - and so they feel timeless and stable. Curved decor accessories soften and relax a room. When you walk into a room, rounded shapes will give you a sense of completeness, unity and harmony.

Rounded shapes are graceful, feminine, and sensual. The fabulous thing about using curves is that you can soften and relax your room without compromising on elegance and class.

Keywords to associate with this trend: Safety, unity, connection.

Dècor Ideas: think round mats and rugs, round pendant lights, big round bowls and baskets, round cushions, a big round clock, round stools. Anything that might soften up your space a bit!

Interior design trend 5: SPLASHES OF COLOUR

What are we talking about? We're talking about intense dual tones for walls and furniture. We're talking about using colour in decor not only to "match" but to make a statement, to catch your eye.

Why? Bright colours are playful, interesting and stimulating. They are modern (mostly because they are brave).

Why else? Intense and bright colours are known to improve mood and create a happy atmosphere.

Which? Honestly, go wild. But if you want to get specific primary yellow is a big colour at the moment, it is modern and bright but FEELS vintage and timeless. You can pair with dark colours. Swipe right for an example.
Forest greens and deep blues are also big, read more about ocean hues in our previous few posts.

But, we're back onto décor and so excited to continue exploring current design and décor trends.

#OceanHues feel calming, relaxed and tranquil, and also usually make a space more MODERN. Do you have any ocean hues in your house? We'd love to know! Tell us how you've incorporated them? Or send us a pic! Or even better - post a story and tag us you trendy folk ๐Ÿ˜‰.

Decor trend 4: Ocean Hues are all things ocean-y, blue-y, turquise-y, from deep inky tones to soft aquas.

Ocean hues speak to a tranquil home:
๐Ÿ They give you a sense of peace, calm and comfort.
๐Ÿ They give the illusion of open space.
When it comes to design:
๐ŸŒŠ Ocean hues are open to interpretation and can therefore be easily combined with other colours.
๐ŸŒŠ They are modern.

What's your favourite special touch to this kitchen?

We love how personal and how creative you can get with maximalism-style décor. If you'd like to read more about this décor trend and others, please head to our profile and have a look through our recent posts.

Maximalism encourages reusing and recycling. Rather than throwing out things when we tire of them, maximalists find new ways to restore them to good use.

#Decortrends #maximalism #decorinspo


Maximalism

03 August 2021

Maximalism ~ “In the arts, maximalism, a reaction against minimalism, is an aesthetic of excess. The philosophy can be summarized as "more is more", contrasting with the minimalist motto "less is more".

You know, when we shot this kitchen we actually took out a lot of the personality-ridden quirky bits and bobs in order to try and make it look more minimal, because minimalism was a huge trend at the time. Now we wish we had also done some shots that included those extra pieces of the homeowner’s soul.

Trend 2: Earthy shades

Think woven baskets, wooden accessories, plants, think stone, rock and animal skins. Think wholesome and natural.

Earthy shades are not necessarily neutral but bold natural textures, patterns, shapes and colours inspired by nature.

As we said earlier this trends often ties in with trend 1: eco choices - most eco choices (when it comes to accessories) are also earthy.

We'll post a few pictures to give you a better feel over the next few days.

Conscious consumerism is a HUGE trend. As more people are become educated about the dire health of our earth, more people are making eco-positive choice. People are choosing the sustainable option, the environmentally friendly option, or the locally made option over the cheapest option.

With making the "eco choice" comes the implication of longevity, quality and durability - and that's what we're all going for!

๐Ÿคฒ Hand-made is big,
๐ŸŒ Local is big,
๐Ÿ‘ฃ Sustainable is big,
๐Ÿถ Re-used materials are big,
โ™ป๏ธ Recycled materials are big.

Colour palette: Gold, beige, moss green, soft olives, earthy oranges.

We suspect this trend isn't going away, and we're really happy about that. Make the eco-positive choice friends!

P.S. We have a HUGE announcement coming later... you can start your sustainable journey TODAY.

Hello everyone. Sabrina here. While this is a platform intended to share freestanding kitchens-related content, I feel that what has happened in KZN and Gauteng has too gravely affected our people for us not to mention it. I do not feel it would be right to continue marketing our brand without acknowledging the severity of the situation.

The last few days have been absolutely crazy. On Monday morning, a couple of our staff who live on the other side of town were unable to come to work because of protesters blocking the road. Those of us who made it to work on Monday had 2 or 3 hours of work before we started noticing fires burning on farms in the distance. When we heard news of gun shots at a business 10kms south of us of us and violent looting in Wartburg, 10kms North of us, Milestone Kitchen's team made the decision to lock up and head home. Not 30 minutes later a bakkie full of hostile men arrived at our factory gate - presumably to check that we were not working, we can't be sure exactly what happened because my family and I hid until they left.

Fortunately, our factory still stands. My heart goes out to the 40 000+ businesses that have been burned to the ground and the 100s of 1000s of people who have lost their jobs. So much has happened and there is so much I would like to address but I will stick to the effects felt by our immediate circle.

We have spent the past few days putting out maliciously lit fires on neighbouring farms, taking shifts patrolling - looking for more burning or possible further vandalism, burning firebreaks behind the factory, and, most importantly, we have spent much time searching for food for us, our staff and their families.

While these violent protests have affected all of us, it is our staff who will suffer most. Our staff who were in the factory when the predominant part of the looting in our town happened. Our staff who are all the primary breadwinners in their households. Our staff who live in an outlying rural area and do not have access to the transport that my family and I do to go on the search of food. Our staff who do not have access to many of the resources, the WhatsApp groups, and other networking prospects that the business owners and privileged community members are able to utilize to find food. Our staff who's livelihoods have been threatened - "do not go back to work or we will burn your work place". While my family may survive the loss of Milestone Kitchens, many of our staff will not. A terrifying prospect.

Extraordinarily, and against all odds, emerging from the gloom are threads of hope. The way communities across all ethnicities and walks of life have joined together to provide for each other has been incredible to witness and be a part of. The South African people have picked themselves up and carried on, adjusting to a "new normal", with unmatched resilience, as if it's always been this way. The humour delicately and discerningly pulled out of a dire situation speaks to the vitality and toughness of our people. The unity, the spirit of Ubuntu, rising out of the ashes is an overwhelming inspiration and I hope that we continue to build on it.

Below are some visuals of the past few days:
๐Ÿ’› Handing out the food supplies we managed to find to the Milestone Staff.
๐Ÿ’œ The bread Nobuhle baked for the Milestone Staff.
๐Ÿงก Singing Nobuhle happy birthday (video in comments).

๐Ÿ’š Before and after clean up in our small town of Wartburg (After video in comments).
๐Ÿ’™ In the line for milk provided by a local farmer.

I have been extremely angry and bitter about the affect this unrest has had on so many people, but we have leant on each other and pulled ourselves up and we are ready to move forwards. With the sound of gunshots in our ears and the smell of ash in our noses we will continue to build on the good work that Milestone Kitchens has accomplished and work towards the vision we have for ourselves and for South Africa. In support of this vision, we will resume posting freestanding kitchen and Milestone Factory related content and we look forward to engaging with you all again.

To the clients who's WhatsApps and emails have been left unanswered, please bear with us while we catch up, while we find new suppliers and while we help our previous suppliers get back on their feet.

Corner Wall units have always been a touchy subject for us… Covering every inch of your wall, squishing cupboards right into the corners of your kitchen - totally not our style, and totally not a part of the freestanding kitchen ethos. Also, you’d be surprised how many corners aren’t actually 90 degrees ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.

BUT, there are exceptions, sometimes a wall unit in the corner might really finish off the kitchen design perfectly.

So, we have gone ahead and created these Corner Wall Units - โญ๏ธ NEW PRODUCT ALERT โญ๏ธ- here are some pics of the prototypes. We think they’re cute, and you?

A returning client’s second Milestone Kitchen ๐Ÿ˜.

One of the best thing about freestanding kitchens is that you don’t have to lose those favourite pieces and you don’t have to stick to one supplier only. You can use that antique dresser from your grandmother or keep the glass wall units from the previous owner - there are no restrictions!

We ALWAYS recommend a wooden top on our client’s kitchen islands. Wood is warm, winter or summer, it feels good to sit at a wooden island - in opposition to a cold stone top. Wooden tops also bring in an aspect of natural to your decor. It cuts through sharp lines and adds a feeling of softness and realness. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with a wooden top on your island.

Swipe through these photos to see what we mean.

The great thing about freestanding kitchens is that you can have different tops throughout your kitchen - a wooden top on the island, a stainless steel top on your pastry table and a caesarstone top on your sink unit. You name it, Milestone Kitchens can do it.

Got an awkwardly shaped kitchen? Ask us to make you a 3D layout. It makes it so much easier to wrap your mind around!

This kitchen is for a client in the Freestate, her house is old school with some spaces that were tricky to design. Thanks to our new 3D layout option the Design Team, together with the client, have come up with a layout that lends itself to flow between the house and the heart of her home, the kitchen.

With the covid-19 virus still rife, and all of our newfound understanding about how easy it is do contract a virus... we think it's SO COOL that with Milestone Kitchens freestanding units you can have an empty room in the morning and a full kitchen in the afternoon. No tradesmen in and out of your house for weeks fitting your kitchen.

This is a Swedish Style Milestone Kitchen in KZN. You might see similar looking pictures in the future, or have seen similar looking pictures before - this kitchen is constantly being rearranged. #samesamebutdifferent. Ah, the beauty of freestanding kitchens.

Lindani and some of the Milestone Kitchens staff helped pick up 13 dogs from Mpolweni village last week Wednesday with the SPCA.

The dogs were all sterilised by SPCA Pietermaritzburg, some of them were also treated for mange and given rabies vaccines. They were returned to their owners earlier this week, along with a bag of dog food each.

THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED!

It was a successful venture and we would really like to do it again. There are a lot more families who need help with their dogs. If you would like to contribute towards helping the lives of more dogs and their owners, please click the following link: https://www.backabuddy.co.za/mpolweni-dog-project.

Sink Unit

11 March 2021

There's a few unbeatable things about freestanding Sink Units we feel like you need to know -

1. If there's a leak, you don't have to pull the whole thing apart to fix it! You just turn off the water and move the unit off the wall.

2. You don't have to worry about the cupboards disintegrating over time because of small pools of water soaking into all those nooks and crannies created when you stick some thing steadfastly to the wall. Even if you do get splashes of water here and there - our units are solid wood, they are practically “undisintegratable”.

3. If you invest in a beautiful Butler Sink Unit like this, you don't need to throw it away when you move or renovate. You can just take the whole thing with you!

Sizwe received the Carpenter of Year award for 2020 for his continued precision, workmanship and excellent understanding of our clients needs.

Sizwe has been head carpenter of the African Allure range since 2010. He selects and prepares his wood expertly so it has that rough, textured finish. He keeps the legs and overall structure solid and chunky but still classy. His cornices are always defined by symmetry. He always wears a hat. And he leads his team calmly and efficiently.

We have included some photos of his work in this post.

Often when we photograph a Milestone Kitchen, I have to do a couple of portraits for articles and stuff. They have mostly turned out okay and so I have compiled a "How To Do a Portrait" list using the techniques that have worked for me:

* Wake up early so that you are not late.
* Get dressed.
* Change your outfit.
* Change your outfit again.
* Put make-up on while you think of a better outfit.
* Keep your outfit but change your shoes.
* Leave for the shoot location on time.
* Brake, stop. Quickly run back to your house and get your other outfit, just in case (NOTE: You will never ever ever use the extra outfit, but you should still bring it. Don’t mess with the system).
* Pick up flowers for the client.
* Call the photographer and tell them you are running late.
* Arrive late.
* Once you are taking the photos ask the photographer if they think you should change your outfit?
* Say: "I AM smiling with my eyes." Up to 10 times.
* Remember that in order to "look comfortable" you usually have to be uncomfortable.
* Assume that the sentence "yes, your hair looks neat" is a lie.
* Receive the proofs.
* Wonder if you should have worn a different outfit.
* Deliberate which photo to choose (at least an hour).
* Write the photograph numbers onto pieces of paper.
* Put pieces of paper into a hat.
* Pick piece of paper out of hat and let photographer know the number.

Regards,
Sabrina

Sabrina Suggests the Deluxe Coffee Dresser in African Allure.

This isn’t our standard Deluxe Coffee Dresser, it usually has open shelves at the top and has only been made before in Swedish Style. When a client asked for one in African Allure we were very chuffed - we’ve always wanted to do one in our AA range, but haven’t had the opportunity. We weren’t disappointed!

Sabrina says that as soon as she has a big enough lounge, she’s getting one in African Allure painted in Graphite Black (instead of Stoney Grey), with a black vein stain Ash top, and filling with white crockery ๐Ÿฝโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿต๐Ÿฅ›๐Ÿซ–.

We made this video to explain to you why FREESTANDING KITCHENS MAKE SO MUCH SENSE.

Freestanding kitchens are for practical people with great taste and style. In this video explain the differences between a freestanding and a fitted kitchen and show you some real-life kitchens illustrating the advantages of ‘going freestanding’. We’ve been really looking forward to sharing it.

Have a look and please don’t hesitate to contact us when you are ready to start designing your freestanding kitchen. Milestone Kitchens is here for you!


Milestone Kitchens offers a range of free-standing kitchens units in three styles. Each kitchen unit is carefully hand crafted to suit its unique style and is constructed using a combination of solid wood and supawood in key structural areas.
