Retain your vitamins
One thing that quickly caught our eye on the recent CEVISAMA exhibition where the new high quality Liebherr BioFresh fridges and freezers on display. The BioFresh system provides the ultimate technology for all health-conscious food lovers. With the temperature maintained just above 0 °C and an ideal air humidity level, fruit and vegetables, meat, fish and dairy products retain their healthy vitamins, delicate flavour and attractive appearance for up to three times longer than in a traditional refrigerator.
NoFrost means that the food is frozen with chilled recirculating air, and any humidity is expelled. As a result, the freezer is always free of ice, and food no longer frosts over.

Accurate and independent temperature control of the refrigerator compartment and freezer compartment of combined fridge-freezers is achieved through DuoCooling with two completely separate cooling circuits. And there is no air exchange between the refrigerator and freezer compartment. This prevents odour transfer and stops the stored food from drying out.
Casa-Interior is an official Liebherr retailer so if you live in the Altea, Alfaz del Pi, Albir, La Nucia, Calpe, Benidorm, Moraira and Benissa area and you are interested in learning more about how to get your own BioFresh fridge-freezer in your kitchen, please feel welcome to come by our shop In Altea or send us an email today!

Time to feel nature
This year it is considered fashionable to choose high quality materials for your kitchen. These materials last longer and prolongs the time your kitchen looks good without having to change the furniture and worktops. The trend is to make the designs more personal, higher quality and with the end users in mind.
Latest trends indicates that wood with visible veins and structure is 'very hot'. The borders between outside and inside is not as clear as it used to be. Nature should now be in your home! Accessories, decoration, pots and plants in the kitchen tend to have colors from and be inspired by nature.
