Open plan design

This article will be a little more specifically about home design than my normal kitchen design focus, but that is not an accident. I want to talk about one very interesting aspect of design that has a big weighting on the design, layout and use of your kitchen. That aspect is open plan design. What […]

The kitchen for communal dining

“The kitchen?!” I hear you cry, “The kitchen is a place for cooking, for preparing food, certainly not for eating it you kitchen design heathen!” “We have dining rooms for that,” pipes up one dissenter at the back, “I sit in front of my television to eat” says another. All of these people might be […]

How to manage in small kitchens

A lot of the time when I discuss kitchen designs I take a little too much for granted. I assume that you all have enormous amounts of space available, or a huge budget, or access to world class designers and architects. The truth is barely anyone has access to any of that. I stayed with […]

Lighting in the Kitchen space

Lighting your kitchen is often one of the most overlooked aspects of kitchen design. Rubbish lighting can make your kitchen look like a steaming pile of manure; and no one wants that from a kitchen. Instead by choosing your lighting carefully you can transform even the most mundane kitchen into one that makes women swoon […]

Professional Designers

We all love a bit of do it yourself. Be honest; we all throwing on the overalls, grabbing our crunchy paintbrushes and dusting off our cans of paint before boldly going into our rooms and trying to apply a little bit of TLC to our ailing homes. There comes a point, though, when we need […]

Carpeted Kitchens?

I have never seen a carpeted kitchen. I have heard of such things; people tell tales about soft floored kitchens around the world, places where people can walk around bare foot, or go for a midnight snack, without fear of having the freezing grasp of the tiled floor waking them from their late night slumber […]

A fresh coat of paint

One of my final tips for updating your kitchen’s look on a budget is painting it. Yes, that’s right; painting it. I know it is the oldest solution in the book; but for the cost conscious designer, or someone on a shoe string budget who is tired of staring at the same old kitchen walls, […]

Automatic Lights: The craze that never caught on

We have all seen them; you see them in films, you see them on television shows and you definitely have seen them in adverts. Automatic lights. They seemed so futuristic; people would come into their homes, into their kitchens, and one of two things would happen. The first is that the character would clap their […]

The smells of your kitchen

A lot of people spend a lot of time and money presenting the look of their kitchen to family and friends. The floors, the windows, the walls, the paintings, the colours and the fittings all have to be a certain way, to have a certain look, to impress. One area of kitchen design that is […]

Crumpet toasters: Why settle for less

We’ve all been there; you wake up in the morning and you’ve got no bread. Nothing. Not one single slice for your toast. You open the fridge. Nothing. You open the freezer and there, hidden under the chips, is a packet of crumpets. Lonely, never used but now is the time for them to shine. […]
