Heart of the Home

F L Bone has been an importer of luxury home appliance brands for over 100 years and features a selection of exceptional designer products for the home. The high-end appliances include range cookers and fireplaces and are on display in their Queenstown store at The Junction in Gorge Road.

Queenstown store manager Nicky Martin considers the cooker is the star of the kitchen.

“It’s the most important furniture in the kitchen. Separate cooktops and wall ovens can break up the space, while a stand-alone cooker focuses the kitchen on the main event which is cooking.

The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home and creating meals has become a family business thanks to the increase in cooking shows on television and influencer chefs on social media feeds. It is often the room we invest the most in when renovating.”

Nicky says choosing what type of range cooker for a particular property depends on several key elements.

“Whether you’re updating your current cooker or completely redesigning your kitchen there are several factors to consider beyond brand, colour and functionality when choosing a cooker. We source world class brands, and exceptionally designed products so people can create the home they have always dreamed of.”

She says a good starting point is to consider the number of diners regularly catered for, including when entertaining, to determine the oven that best suits the home.

“We cater for a wide variety of people at F L Bone from empty nesters looking to downsize to those growing families requiring something larger. There is so much choice available which makes shopping here a fun exercise.”

“Our cookers come in various configurations to support whatever your house runs – gas, electric, dual fuel, or induction. Sometimes it simply comes down to preference but those primary energy considerations need to be factored into your choice.”

“Finishing touches like handles and knobs make big difference to each cooker and while stainless steel, black and white variations suit a traditional or industrial setting the store also stocks AGA, Rayburn and La Cornue offering a range of contemporary colours that add a real wow factor.”

“Visit the Queenstown showroom and we can show you all the options and help to coordinate colours, textures and finishings. Spending money on one of our high-end cookers is worth the expense – it will make you feel good every time you cook which for most of us is at least once a day.”
