Contemporary Dualit Architect toaster colour

Colour changing toaster

Who’d have thought of designing a toaster where you can change the colour of its panel?

Well, Dualit did!

The Architect two slice toaster has all the toasting abilities you’d expect, plus the addition of side panels that can be removed to change the colour of your toaster.

It’s a novel idea and great if you can’t make up your mind which colour toaster to buy, or change your kitchen decor and want your toaster to match it again.

In practice, we’re not sure how often we’d get round to changing the colour panels, but it’s a creative design nonetheless.

The toaster itself costs £69.95 and toaster colour panels cost £15 per pair. Panels are available from Selfridges in apple candy, azure blue, citrus, canvas white and chilli pink, but Dualit do make additional colours too.

Currently the panels are sold in matching pairs, but we think mixed colour selections would be good.

What do you think? Would you buy a toaster that you can colour change to match your kitchen?


Funky slide staircases: fun and creative stair designs

Amazing slide staircase Home slide design staircase

Ever wished you didn’t have to walk downstairs? Well, with one of these creatively designed staircases, you don’t have to walk – you just slide!

What a fantastic idea they are and very cleverly designed, so that both of the slides are in keeping with the design of the stairs. As well as sliding down them, you could also send down your washing via the slide or anything else you have no desire to lug down the stairs.

I love the wooden spiral slide staircase (although, being practical, I wouldn’t want it positioned next to a glass window, just in case of accidents), but the straight slide works very well next to a standard, straight staircase too.

In fact, the second slide staircase was designed by London architect, Alex Michaelis, on the request of his children and is one of the funky additions in the eco-friendly home he built. As well as enjoying sliding down the slide, his kids also have an indoor pool and rock climbing wall, which sounds amazing!
