Forget abrasive or chemical cleaners, sit back and let your oven clean itself! Sound like a dream? Well wake up and discover reality with the Pyrolytic built-in.

The family-run Italian oven manufacturer, ILVE has launched its much awaited second 60cm Pyrolytic. And just like its predecessor it’s destined to be the envy of every household.

The amazing Pyrolytic cleaning phase technology reduces food remains to ash with exposure to high temperatures up to 465°C. To ensure safety the oven stays locked until the process is complete and the ash can be wiped away with a damp cloth.

The Pyrolytic is a classic and elegant Italian design, offering a European A-Class energy rating, removable oven door and inner door glass, quadruple door glazing for safer, cooler door temperatures, twin fan cavity integrated cooling system and recessed grill element.

Founded in Italy more than half a century ago, ILVE is renowned for its exquisite collection of freestanding ovens and award-winning canopy hoods. Always at the forefront of design with relentless innovation and technological research, ILVE was the first to introduce a 90cm upright and the Teppanyaki hot plate in domestic ovens and cooktops to the Australian market nearly 30 years ago.

Although it’s usually the smallest room in the house, the bathroom is often the most popular.  After all, everybody visits it. Create a more stylish and spacious look with these simple tricks.

  • Choose light wall colours to reflect the light and increase brightness and avoid dark heavily-patterned wallpaper.
  • Brighten up the room with skylights or bigger windows, or consider high-watt bulbs and additional light fixtures in low-light areas.
  • Mirrors positioned opposite an outside window will capture incoming light and reflect it back, while full-length horizontal mirrors give the illusion of wider space, and vertical mirrors give a sense of raised height
  • To create more space replace floor cabinets with wall cabinets, install floating shelves in the shower and around the toilet to store shampoo, toiletries and other accessories and don’t forget to use the back of the bathroom door to hang a towel rack.
  • Clutter always makes your bathroom feel cramped and smaller than it is so instead of storing your beauty items on the vanity, store them in the cabinet and keep nick knacks to a minimum.

Drop in and get some great ideas from our bathroom specialists and give your most popular room a facelift.
