How’s it hanging, one and all?

Today we’re thinking about kitchens (what’s new); okay, more specifically, we’re thinking about kitchens in 2014. These social hubs are increasingly important in our homes, and as such, they deserve to look pretty darn good. But there are trends to take note of, colours to incorporate on a seasonal basis, the latest gadgets to buy, etc etc… keeping your kitchen up to date can be taxing stuff!

With that in mind, we’ve been thinking up some dreamy ways for our customers to give their kitchens a little ‘pick-me-up’; y’know, like the furniture equivalent of an espresso! A new cabinet door handle might be just the ticket. These ‘handy’ (sorry, couldn’t resist) little numbers can transform the appearance of your cabinet door, and there are plenty of aesthetic considerations to take on board: size, material, and style, to name just a few. All that change for just a small price and without any heavy lifting! Bargainous.

Well, if that floats your boat, we’ve got some good news for you! deTerra have just launched our hunky handles range, and there’s something for every taste: stainless steel handles, pewter handles, solid wood handles; cup handles, drop handles, fixed handles and knobs, too… what more could you want?! Best of all, this sleek little selection has been specially chosen to look drop-dead gorgeous in all solid wood kitchens.

Whether you’re building your dream kitchen from scratch or just updating an old look, get over to our handles page today and start browsing. You won’t regret it.

Hey-diddle-ey, party people!

Lumberneto

You know us, we’re pretty crazy about all things timber; and as such we’ve been watching the development of a new craze with interest. The focus of our interest? Wood burning stoves!

Wood burners and other biomass type boilers are super eco-friendly, don’tcha know. We’re proud to say that we’ve got one of our very own in the factory: that’s right, all of our warehouse heating is covered by burning old offcuts and unusable bits of timber that would otherwise go to waste. We’re super-efficient and eco-friendly here at deTerra HQ.

However, one thing that puts folk off getting on the wood-burning-bandwagon is the chopping of that pesky wood: it can be a mite tricky to cut up all that timber! Luckily for us, there is an innovative new technique doing the rounds… According to The Telegraph’s Richard Gray, the trick is as follows:

‘Simply wrap a tough rubber band, such as an inner tube from a bike, around the log to hold it together, take a sharp axe and then split the wood into sections. The rubber holds it together, allowing you to finish splitting without sending logs flying and helping you to move it easily.’

Handy, eh? Don’t say we don’t look after you!

But as you know, deTerra isn’t just about eco-friendly time-saving tips: we’re also mad about natural kitchens. From beautiful cabinets to stunning worktops, we can help you fulfil your kitchen dreams for affordable prices: and all our wood is sustainably and legally sourced, too, so you can achieve your environmental dreams from your stove to your kitchen. It’s a cinch.

Just don’t mix the two… our wood worktops will feel mightily sad if they are turned into firewood!

Yo peeps, how’s it hanging?

Our blog has reached the big 5-0 entry: quite a milestone. Or maybe we’re just chatterboxes… hmm. Never mind, we’re still proud! So, to celebrate this achievement, we thought we’d share a little secret with you.

Actually… it’s not exactly a secret; deTerra’s eternal love for each and every one of you should be second nature by now, after all! Still, we’re always looking to spread some winter cheer; and, as such, we thought a little reminder regarding our fantastic January sale was in order. For the rest of the month customers can enjoy a 10% discount on everything (minus samples, but you can get a refund on a like-for-like basis so no biggie). Sounds pretty good if you ask us.

So whether it’s a new kitchen wooden worktop or a complete room refurb, there’ll be something in the sale for you. Go on, you know you want a beautiful wood kitchen: everyone needs a bit of deTerra in their lives, and this is the perfect opportunity.

Anyway, we’re off to properly celebrate our blog’s ‘half century – catch y’all later!

Happy New Year, dudes and dudettes!

Happy New Year

We hope you had a bangin’ NYE and partied all night long! 2014 already rocks (have you SEEN our fantastic sale?!) but because deTerra was ‘born’ in 2013, we feel it was a pretty special year for us and deserves its very own review.

So much has happened that when it came down to it, we didn’t know where to begin! From launching our gorgeous oak kitchens to magazine mentions and everything in between, this year has been a huge success.

First up, deTerra became super sociable (and yes, we actually had permission to do this)! We discovered the wonderful world that is Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ and we must say it’s all been pretty exciting! Furthermore, we launched our first (but definitely not last) competition to win a brand new iPad 2 which proved highly popular, not least with our deTerra mascot, Cabineto. We were happy to announce that David Jackson was the lucky winner– we hope you’re still having a blast with it, David.

Our superb collection of wooden worktops was the first page we introduced to our website in early 2013. And once we got started, there was no stopping us: samples, kitchens, accessories, units and doors all followed in quick succession – we were on a roll! This led us to the fully functioning deTerra website that you feast your eyes upon today.

The end of the year marked the introduction of our kitchen brochures which showcases our complete range of products. But this isn’t just your standard brochure, oh no! Natural, authentic and plain fun are a few of the qualities we focused on and we are really pleased with the results – you should defs check one out!

And finally we couldn’t forget our charitable chaps that participated in this year’s Movember. Their efforts were pretty entertaining impressive, and they even managed to raise over a hundred quid for a brilliant cause. Give yourselves a pat on the back boys – we’re proud of you.

With all this (and more) happening in just one year, we’re can’t wait to see what 2014 has to offer. To start the ball rolling, we’re running a 10% sale on EVERYTHING (well…except samples, but they’re redeemable if you proceed to purchase from us so are basically free anyway).

Have a joyful January, peeps.

Ta ta for now,
