John creates interactive kitchen

Using ThistlePro Magnetic to enhance kitchen walls

ThistlePro Magnetic Plaster

After installing a new kitchen installed in his home, complete with a built in fridge, John McDermott and his wife realised they no longer had any where to put up notes, to-do lists and other important family documents as magnets wouldn’t stick to it. They made the decision to install ThistlePro Magnetic from British Gypsum to meet that need.

With a young family in the house, the couple wanted something slightly more durable and hardwearing, but also wanted to create a space that was changeable and interactive. John explains: “It wasn’t until after our new kitchen was installed that we realised we could no longer attach anything to our fridge. We often put our daughter’s work and to-do lists on there. We didn’t appreciate how much we would miss being able to do that. I was already aware of ThistlePro Magnetic, and loved the idea and concept behind it - I knew it would be a perfect addition to our kitchen.”

The kitchen is often the hub of the home for many families and ThistlePro Magnetic has helped the McDermott’s transform their kitchen into an interactive space that everyone can enjoy.  Not only can John and his wife display birthday cards, Christmas decorations, photos and attach keys, their daughter can also add her art to the wall. John continues: “We are all absolutely delighted with the end result. Our daughter loves art and I hang every canvas she produces. The best thing about ThistlePro Magnetic is that we can regularly swap her pictures so the kitchen is constantly refreshed and updated, but there’s no damage to the wall.”

It’s not just the family who has been impressed with ThistlePro Magnetic, as John admits that visitors to the house always comment on how inventive and engaging the wall is.  He says: “It doesn’t matter who comes to the house – young or old, everyone loves the magnetic plaster. It’s always a talking point!”

ThistlePro Magnetic can be applied to new or existing walls, with a minimum 3mm thickness. Once dry, it can be painted with standard wall paint or combined with specialist paint finishes, including blackboard and whiteboard. You can even wallpaper over the top of it and magnets will still stick!
