“The mess and wasted space under the sink has bothered me for years,” says Blum employee Amanda Hughes. The mother of two teenagers speaks from experience. From experience gained in her own kitchen and through working with kitchen manufacturers and distributors in the UK. “My husband and I work during the week and our two boys are at school. That’s why our dinners and weekends together are so precious,” says the 49-year-old. “No one likes washing up – definitely not by hand. And if the things you need for washing up are either left lying around or aren’t at hand, well, that puts me off completely. And that doesn’t only apply to me, but to the whole family,” says the expert from Blum’s showroom in Milton Keynes, north of London, reporting on her everyday routine.
