Discover how Andrea Brodin brought her kitchen dream to life
You own a VH7 kitchen, one of HTH's most flexible concepts. How did you decide on that solution? Describe the process of designing a kitchen with HTH, from the store to delivery?
Our journey with designing a kitchen with HTH was a smooth and enjoyable experience. After finding inspiration and settling on the VH7 kitchen concept, we visited the Odenplan store in Stockholm and met Anders, our dedicated HTH representative.
Anders provided exceptional support throughout the entire process. We discussed different colour options for the cabinet doors and ultimately chose the elegant Focus Clay. To ensure a perfect fit, Anders visited our home and took precise measurements of the kitchen space. It was during this visit that he presented us with a brilliant solution—a kitchen island and four tall cabinets that perfectly matched our dream design.
On the agreed-upon delivery day, the kitchen arrived as scheduled. The installation process was handled by skilled carpenters who efficiently brought our vision to life. The end result was a stunning kitchen that exceeded our expectations.
Why did you choose HTH? What does the company represent to you?
Quality, innovation and design!
When does the entire family gather in the kitchen?
Every day. Here we work, do homework, cook, play games, and spend time together, of course.
What aspect of the kitchen excites you the most?
The kitchen island, with its generous length and width, serves as the central hub of our kitchen. Positioned strategically, it houses the hob, allowing us to have complete oversight of the entire cooking area. This setup enables us to stay connected with everyone in the kitchen, keeping an eye on their activities while preparing meals.
What factors influenced your decision-making process when choosing the kitchen?
We wanted a timeless and modern kitchen with a gray/beige colour scheme that would complement our 70s house. The VH7 handle groove added a light and airy feel to the design without making the kitchen feel compact.
To maximize storage space, we chose tall cabinets with full pull-out functionality and cabinets with pull-out trays. The result is a sleek and organized kitchen that balances elegance with practicality.

Versatile kitchen island: dining and more
The kitchen island in Andrea Brodin's kitchen also serves as a dining area, adding versatility and functionality to the space. This allows for a seamless transition between cooking and dining, making it a convenient and social hub in the kitchen.
Chrome kitchen tap: sleek and stylish
Andrea chose a kitchen tap in chrome for her kitchen. The chrome finish adds a sleek and modern touch to the overall design. Chrome is a popular choice for kitchen taps as it is durable, easy to clean, and complements various kitchen styles and colour schemes.
Ceiling-mounted extractor hood
In Andrea Brodin's kitchen, the extractor hood is installed in the ceiling. This type of installation is known as a ceiling-mounted or ceiling-integrated extractor hood. It provides a seamless and discreet look in the kitchen, as the hood is hidden within the ceiling structure.
The VH-7 Concept offers a unique and stylish design with its handle grooves, featuring slim vertical lines and simple horizontal lines. When selecting a VH7 kitchen, you can choose from various models, including lacquered and veneered fronts.
Andrea Brodin opted for the popular lacquered front "Focus" for her kitchen. Focus comes in several beautiful lacquer colours that can be matched with VH7 handle grooves of the same colour.
With the VH7 handle grooves, you have the flexibility to decide how the doors should be divided. Whether you prefer completely smooth doors or a three-drawer look like Andrea, the choice is yours.
Kitchen & Colours
Andrea Brodin had a clear vision of a gray/beige kitchen from the start, making the Focus model an obvious choice for her.

Andrea's top 3 kitchen tips
for those planning a new kitchen:
1: Careful planning is crucial when it comes to utilizing your kitchen space effectively. Where do you typically position yourself to chop vegetables in the kitchen? Is it possible to walk past the dishwasher when its door is open? What measures can be taken to ensure those using the kitchen maintain a comfortable and ergonomic working position? What is the ideal distance between the refrigerator and workspace in the kitchen?
2: To ensure you have electrical outlets exactly where you need them in your kitchen, it's a wise idea to create a detailed drawing or plan. Having electrical outlets on the kitchen island creates a convenient workspace where you can seamlessly use small appliances or charge devices without any restrictions.
3: When planning your kitchen cabinets, take some time to consider what items you want to store in each cabinet and how you can optimize the space.
