– ex­pert ad­vice to over­haul the hard­est-work­ing room in your home

Simply You - - Contents -

Need some in­spi­ra­tion for your kitchen over­haul? We asked the ex­perts to share their

in­sights on the lat­est de­sign trends for this im­por­tant space.

Open shelves

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.

Ex­pert tip

“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
