Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Kitchen Reno -

If your kitchen has dead space, look at ex­tend­ing part of the bench­top to cre­ate a break­fast bar. Us­ing a dark colour and tim­ber through­out cre­ates a cafe vibe and a uni­fied de­sign.

5 The clever break­fast bar

over­hang makes room for all the fam­ily, not just the kids. It’s also a savvy spot to use your lap­top or to help the kids with home­work while you pre­pare din­ner!

6 A beau­ti­fully de­signed kitchen

doesn’t have to cost the earth. This sleek flat-pack from Ka­boo­dle has tons of stor­age and style.

7 You have to love

a slen­der pull-out tap – it makes wash­ing pots so easy! Con­sider an in­te­grated dish­washer to give your kitchen a seam­less – and more ex­pen­sive – look. And if you’re cre­at­ing a servery, add a bi-fold win­dow so that the panes of glass stack neatly, to cre­ate more space.

8 Give sim­ple white sub­way tiles

a free, clever and dis­tinc­tive style up­grade by lay­ing them in a her­ring­bone pat­tern and us­ing grey grout to make them pop!

9 Dec­o­ra­tive plants

hang­ing from a tim­ber frame bring the out­side in and add ex­tra flow to the space.
