Did you know Thomas Edison’s home in Fort Myers, Florida, had its kitchen in a separate building because he couldn’t stand the smell of cooking food?  Most modern homes have two dining areas, two living areas, two-car garages, but have not yet fully accepted two cooking areas. A kitchen-removed, or ‘spice kitchen’, for generations has been a standard in Asian culture.  Their thinking on this feature is simple:  To prevent cooking odours from permeating their home.


Pungent food-produced steam from garlic, chilis, and cooking oils, are a migratory and perennial problem in modern homes, becoming embedded in fabric and all manner of porous material – notwithstanding one’s highly sensitive odour molecules (sense of smell).  Porous surfaces of kitchen cabinets, too, require occasional washing with soapy water to be rid of nauseating odours.

Hood fans with Class 5 tornado sucking-power aren’t available.  Open windows play havoc with air conditioning and uniform temperatures.  Vinegar does the job and then you have to do a job on vinegar.  Air fresheners are temporary while introducing their own peculiar odour.  Gas masks are an over-the-top reaction!

Even Asian cultures, with doors to their sealed-off-from-the-rest-of-the-home “Spice Kitchen”, do not wholly prevent odours from sneaking through the cracks and gap under doors, into the rest of the house.

“I don’t need a spice kitchen,” wrote one contributor in a column, “I just call in the kitchen demo unit and have them clean up my mess!”

It remains: How to keep the nose-pinching odours in the Spice Kitchen?


Lebo Interior Doors & Frames has a Simple! and Profound! two-fold solution to the problem of kitchen smell containment:

1)  Lowerable Floor Closure Seal

2)   A three side rabbetted door panel that closes against a gasket seal.

Ingenious!  Don’t you think?


Lebo’s lowerable floor seal and three-side-rabbetted door panel ensure odours from all sources, light and sound, do not migrate out of areas in which they are meant to be contained and into areas in which they are not welcome.

This means control of your home’s environment, more comfort for its inhabitants. 


Don’t believe me!

Come and see!

Tell me what you think!

You’ll decide one of two things:  1)  I’m in need of truth serum or; 2)  You need the benefits of this innovative and life improving Interior Door!

If Thomas Edison was alive today, he would wish he had invented these features; and, he’d greet you at our showroom door!

Maybe …

If you ever thought that people hate eating potatoes, you have been wrong all along. This is among the best foodstuffs and most people order them when they dine out. Preparing meals for crowds of people who frequent hotels is such a difficult task.
