Monarch Kitchen and Bath Centre Designers Discover New and Amazing Things from Blum

What is Blum?
Blum is an international company that specializes in the fittings and functional uses of furniture. In other words, the slides, glides, drawers, organizational pieces and hinges that go into your kitchen! Blum has been manufacturing for more than 60 years and is a market leader in the development of new and innovative products.

Fans of Blum’s exceptional products since their early days working as designers, Monarch’s design team was excited to visit Blum’s Mississauga headquarters and see what new products they had to offer.



Servo-Drive
“The state-of-the-art technology that goes into Blum Servo-Drive is amazing to see,” says designer Amanda Willson-Suppa. With the push of a cabinet door, Servo-Drive pushes the cabinet open. “We thought this would be ideal for use in a garbage can unit since you are able to open it without using your entire hand.”

Blum also had some great slow-closing devices on display. At one time, lift-up cabinets didn’t have the ability to slow-close. Now they can thanks to some of the new hinging systems that Blum offers.

A place for everything and everything in its place.
The other item that caught our designers’ attention was Blum’s foil and plastic wrap dispensers! This brings organization to a new level. You don’t even need to have Blum hardware in your existing kitchen to accommodate these new organizational tools.

Interested in turning your unorganized utensil drawer into a functional kitchen storage space? Call Monarch today and one of our designers would be happy to show you how easy it is to incorporate Blum into your home.
