Planning a freestanding kitchen is a lot of fun, you choose the pieces you want, and you fit them into your kitchen.

You have so much room to play around, versatility and flexibility. And you know what? There’s not a whole bunch of pressure because you can always move your kitchen around.

The Sandy family upgraded to free-standing. Have a look at these AFTER, PLANNING and BEFORE photos of the heart of this family’s home.

🔹Range: Swedish Style
🔹Colour: Ice White
🔹Paint Finish: Distressed (standard)
🔹Base Construction: Plinth

The Sandy family are all vertically advantaged so we made their kitchen extra high.

So, how cool is this?

Tiyon smashed their glass top hob (that’s not the cool part). Her and Sipho have household insurance which includes accidental damage to household contents. When they tried to claim for a new hob, the insurance company originally said no because “kitchens are a part of the building and therefore not part of the contents”...

BUT

Tiyon said “woah wait ✋🏼, actually, my kitchen is free-standing, in fact, we’re taking it with us if we ever move”. And then their insurance covered it.

It’s French Flair (without the twirl), in Aged Cream (with a touch of red), on plinth (but legs on the island), and antique handles.

CREATIVE FREEDOM

One of the most exciting differences between a fitted and freestanding kitchen is that free-standing kitchens give you creative freedom.

Because the kitchen units are not all stuck together you are free to choose different colours, working surfaces, kitchen styles, and base constructions - all in one kitchen.

This particular client👇🏽bought her units from our Factory Outlet Shop, one at a time, painting them all black. The units are different ranges, have different handles, basic constructions and tops - and look at the result! 🧡💚🖤

Everyone loves a kitchen island, but most islands have an overhang on one side only, so when you and your family have a meal at the island you have to sit in a long row.

The Table Island is Silvia Miles’s innovative solution. It has a table on one end and a prep and storage area on the other end: a table + an island = the table island.

The Sandy family upgraded to free-standing.

The sink and usually the stove in a fitted kitchen are completely rooted allowing no mobility for cleaning, maintenance, repairs or a change. Our free-standing Sink and Stove Units are not stuck to the walls, allowing for easy access for plumbing and repairs. If you need to fix a leak in your sink area, all you need to do is switch off the water and move the sink unit forwards.

Have a look at these BEFORE and AFTER photos of the family’s new sink wall.

The Bredenkamps, winners of last years “hero-item” competition with Home Magazine sent us this special email last week and it has our hearts bursting 💕:

“Dear Rosie, Nomonde, Dennis, Dumisani, Goodness, Malusi, Sabrina and Silvia, How can we ever thank you for the changes you made in our kitchen and in our lives! When my husband and son arrived at home after collecting the units from your factory, it was real that we have a new kitchen. I could never dream about having Milestone cupboards, but I did dream about winning the competition, so what I wrote in my 100 words were real.

We want to thank you for the kitchen units we received - the excellent quality of work all these people did with each cupboard. It was very special for us to know who are part of the process of manufacturing and the special note with all the names and their special jobs written, made your business and our cupboards unique. That includes the small cutting board! We admire the work all these people do and believe they will all be blessed.

Our kitchen is such a pleasure! We enjoy each unit in its own way, but the kitchen island is the best. It provides a lot of extra work space.

We also enjoy the drawers running smoothly comparing to our old cupboards!

Our kitchen is still the place where about everything happens, but it changed a lot - we thank you.

We are priviledged! It was a pleasure to work with you!”

Solid Ash Tops

Ash is a very hard durable wood with a beautiful grain.

Our Ash is imported from Canada and is FSC approved. This means it is:
🌲produced in a way that maintains and enhances the social and economic well-being of workers.
🌲environmentally-friendly.
🌲socially sustainable.
🌲and not only maintains, but restores the environment in which it is grown.

Although it is significantly more expensive than Pine, it will last a lifetime. You have the choice of raw, blonde, light, medium, dark or black vein stain for the colour of the ash. Which one is your favorite?

A special message from last year’s Home Magazine hero-item competition winner’s Carrie Lee and Michael:

“Thank you to everyone involved, the units are just beautiful! We are still putting everything together and I cannot wait to see it complete I will send a progress picture soon.
I would like to send my compliments. As a family we have been involved in a few kitchen renovations, as most renovations go they can be quite trying on everyone. I was very impressed with the way your staff dealt with all aspects of the kitchen, from design, to craftsmanship, to the logistics. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful, which helps any person on the other-side when dealing with a renovation or new kitchen. For me what was very important was communication, there are always hiccups but as a consumer knowing what is going on and being informed is so important and much appreciated. The personal touches are also just lovely, thank you.
I have always admired your units and now I have my own special Milestone kitchen, I will highly recommend you to anyone I know who is looking to redo their kitchen.”

Recently a client came to us with an idea, something she’d seen and thought: “Now that’s what I want!” 💡 Based on her ideas we designed a unit, sent her a quote and now she has her very own custom TV cabinet!

For these 21 days, like most South African businesses, we have shut our doors and are staying at home, much to the delight of all our pets. We are proud of the way South Africa is responding to the National Lockdown. In the words of our president Cyril Ramaphosa: “I call on all of us, one and all, to play our part. To be courageous, to be patient, and above all, to show compassion. Let us never despair. For we are a nation at one, and we will surely prevail.” Together, if we all act responsibly and selflessly, we can beat COVID-19. Let’s do it South Africa!

Lockdown is better with dogs

The kitchen is the heart of the home. With the approaching lockdown, we will all be spending a lot more time in our kitchens. These clients sure won’t mind spending all that time in their beautiful African Allure kitchen!

All the best for the lockdown fellow South Africans.

Have you seen our Infinity Units? They are versatile, movable and multi-purpose, not to mention cute! You can choose how many of the 625mm wide sections you would like to string together to best suit your needs. Some ideas for your infinity unit are: as a TV stand, to give some height and a home to your pot plants, they can be placed underneath a window (and used for pot plants or baskets), they could even be used a pedestal - the possibilities are endless!

Islands are a wonderful central unit in a kitchen. Milestone Kitchens has many different Island designs for you to choose from. Free standing Islands are very versatile and can be moved around to change up your kitchen. Or even taken with you if you move house! Islands on caster wheels are especially easy to wheel around, outside to the braai area, inside to where your guests are or simply rotated for a fresh look.

Here is our Standard Island in the French Flair range in the latest edition of SA Garden and Home 🏡

Read our article on Carrie Lee’s kitchen in the February 2020 edition of HOME!

Sabrina’s Quick Fixes
1 Replace your cupboard doors only and then paint your carcasses to match.
2 Remove some old cabinets or a wall to make room for a kitchen island. The Milestone Kitchens freestanding islands on castors are very popular as they can be moved around sand used as servers, tables or breakfast nooks.
The same can be said for replacing units with one of our coffee dressers or grocery cupboards. This is the beauty of freestanding units, not everything has to be done at once.
3 It can be practical and beautiful to have a combination of different countertops in a kitchen. Stainless steel around the sink for water permeability combined with a wood top on an island for comfort and warmth can be very striking.

This is Rosie ☀️
Official Title: Assistant Operations Manager
Unofficial Title: Resident Ray of Sunshine
Quote: “Keep an eye on the cake!” 🍰

Rosie’s cheerful, compassionate and adventurous spirit seeps into everything she does. She is involved in design, administration, social media and marketing-related tasks on a contract basis.

Rosie has a Bachelor in Chemical Engineering, (which leaves her with a lot of knowledge about chemicals) but also a sophisticated understanding of process.

Rosie has also been known to bake a delicious cake on occasion. We are not sure if her process management or cake-baking skills are more valuable 🎂
