KITCHEN REFRESH, REVAMP, RENOVATE
– expert advice to overhaul the hardest-working room in your home
Need some inspiration for your kitchen overhaul? We asked the experts to share their
insights on the latest design trends for this important space.
The trend for exposed shelves and appliances is not just about showing off your kitchenware, it’s also about ease of access. Keep it sleek with coordinated colours and appliances that enhance the space. Seek out new technologies – such as silent rangehoods, dishwashers, and waste disposal – says Barnaby Thompson, of kitchen appliance experts Parex, as these make for a more enjoyable working space.
“Ensure appliances are part of the very first discussions
when planning a kitchen renovation, so the designers
can suggest innovative ways to integrate them into the cabinetry.” Barnaby
