With celebrity chef’s on seemingly every channel, their culinary antics have fuelled a growing interest in new kitchens with the latest features.
But if you’re stuck for inspiration, how about tuning into all those house hunting and reality ‘at home with’ shows and their seemingly limitless amount of kitchens on display.
And if you still haven’t seen anything you like, then why not see some new kitchen designs first-hand?
Just some of the latest trends include a return to the ‘country look’ whilst others are all about bold colours making a ‘designer’ statement.
Many homeowners currently looking at a new kitchen are very much preoccupied with energy efficiency – from appliances using as little energy and water as possible to low energy lighting.
The benefits of a fitted kitchen are many but in brief, choosing the correct style and features coupled with a professional installation should ensure you not only have a great finished kitchen, but that you’ll also add considerable value to your home in the process.
Having your kitchen professionally fitted should also ensure that ‘fitted’ look with units and worktops blending together seamlessly. Careful consideration should be given to finishing touches like concealed worktop lighting and tiling.
You don’t have to be a celebrity chef to create great food, but a new kitchen with modern, energy saving appliances, should make entertaining and preparing food a pleasure rather than a chore.
