Here we share some of our expert knowledge with you.


Before You Startkitchen-reno-timber-boards

When you’re working on a budget, it’s important to ask yourself what you want from the products you need to buy. Consider the following questions:

• Will they suit your home and lifestyle?

• How much maintenance will they need?

• Which styles and colours will complement the rest of your home?

Working from the floor up can be a great way of setting the tone for your kitchen, informing your decisions on the rest of your product purchases.

Another fabulous and timeless look for your kitchen floor are timber boards, which offer a natural and continuous look. Letting them flow from room to room will lend your home a more spacious feel. They are particularly practical in the kitchen, as they are easy to keep clean. Solid timber can be very expensive, so a floating floor can be a great way of achieving the look for less!

Bring Your Kitchen Together with a Rug

A bold, bright pattern will put an original stamp on your kitchen and give you inspiration for colours that will bring the rest of the kitchen together. But when fashion and taste change, so can your décor.

Dress Up Your Windows

Updating your window furnishings is another effective way of refreshing your kitchen. A sheer blind will add brightness. Choose a lighter shade that you can close to help keep some of the heat out of the kitchen in summer.
