Long-standing local business to make new home in Ilkley’s Drill Hall Business Park


Move date: 1st July 2020

Arcade Kitchens & Bedrooms Ltd has announced it will be relocating to an all new design studio, within Ilkley’s Drill Hall Business Park in June. Like many other businesses now seeing the easing of lockdown restrictions, Arcade Kitchens is looking to the future and how it can revitalise its offering.

This change will mark an end to its four decades in the town’s Victorian Arcade and is a testament to the continued growth and success of this family business, since its establishment by brother and sister Vincent Dobson and Elizabeth Tapper, in 1982.

Director Nigel Tapper has said “The move represents our commitment to the future landscape of our industry and to being the ideal partner for our clients. We increasingly work with architects, designers and builders and we want our studio to offer the design focused experience they need. Despite our time in the Arcade coming to an end, our goal of providing our customers the best solutions remains unchanged”.


We are now offering an appointment-based service specific to our clients' needs. For a design consultation or to find out more about our products and service, please contact us by phone or email.

Hacker Systemat & Classic..

Variety is the spice of life, as they say, so what better way to indulge in some holiday escapism – free of charge – than by taking a peek into some of our friends’ kitchens around the world?



Full of exotic, aroma-filled recipes, the Indian kitchen boasts a large array of spices. Yet small kitchens here are becoming more common these days as they require less space and maintenance. Systematic organisation is, therefore, vital.

India is also catching up with the western trend of open kitchens – and fast.



The epicentre of family life, the American kitchen is used to cook, chow down and chat. It’s no wonder, therefore, that for a room that is used for so much, people are willing to splash out. High-tech appliances, such as huge, sub-zero refrigerators, multiple dishwashers and wine coolers may seem extravagant to us, but to many American households are the norm.

“The use of technology in the kitchen is more advanced in the U.S.”, Eva Hoernisch, Group Creative Product Director at Formica Group tells us, “so the integration of built-in screens and chargers is continuing to gain momentum. Under cabinet lighting (LED) is among the most popular kitchen cabinet features and low-tech offerings in the form of interactive surfaces, such as magnetic boards that can be written on, are also on-trend. Contrasting against the growth in technological integration, the concept of built-in green houses and ‘grow your own’ is also beginning to catch on”.

“US kitchens have a tendency to be more traditional using a lot of timber like maple or cherry for cabinets, and with granite or quartz for the worktop”, she adds.



A world leader in kitchen design and innovation, Dutch kitchens are also the heart of the home – often positioned, quite literally, in the centre. One of the most densely populated countries in the world, space is a luxury many houses do not have, so the Dutch kitchen design accommodates this in its traditional galley layout, which is usually set up with two walls of parallel cabinets and worktops – allowing for maximum storage and workspace. To prevent the feeling of being &OpenCuryQuote;closed in’, it often leads to a dining and lounge area.

Almost every kitchen in Amsterdam contains historic details that adds character to the space.



Usually open-plan, centred around an island, the Australian kitchen is a causal space and the hub of family life. Because of its year-long sunshine, some even continue outside, with outdoor kitchens becoming increasingly popular. Ventilation is, understandably, important, so you won’t see a kitchen here without a cooker hood, ceiling fan and windows.

Despite boasting its own enviable climate, the materials used in Australian kitchens often mirror those used in Europe and North America. White tones, combined with earthy materials and textures, seem to be the norm here. Lighting is also very important, with the right combination of LEDs allowing the daytime room to be transformed into an evening entertaining space.

Australian kitchens are really jumping on the smart trend, and with innovative new gadgets – such as fridges that connect to the internet to help with shopping lists – popping up all the time, they certainly know how to ease the workload! More time to enjoy the Barbie, ey?



“Italy has always been known for its exquisite design and style”, Eva says. Renowned for its unparalleled elegance and beauty, the Italian kitchen makes use of natural materials, such as granite, marble and slate, to achieve a modern yet rustic appearance. Flowers and plants are also often used throughout the room to continue the theme of natural décor, as are golds, oranges and yellows to mimic a sunset and blues which represent the sea. A traditional Italian kitchen is usually open, which helps prevent the dark, vivid colours from overwhelming the room.

Italians give great importance to the art of both cooking and eating, which is why you will find their kitchens kitted out with the most luxurious of appliances. Anything that can be put away – such as cooking utensils – is, to enhance the clean and elegant look. But don’t let the focus on luxury deter you from the other very present feature of the Italian kitchen, which is in its warm, charming and inviting feel, reflecting its purpose as a family-orientated room. True timeless beauty.
