    by  • September 8, 2015 • Kitchen Ideas


    Sometimes it takes a little push to get that dream kitchen off the ground and to turn the dream into reality.

    Kitchen of the Week: Modern outlook

    by  • September 3, 2015 • Kitchen Ideas


    When the time came to update the kitchen in this 1950s bungalow in rural Devon, the owner’s decided to take the modern approach and to knock though to create one big open cooking, dining and living zone.

    The previous kitchen was country farmhouse style, but these empty nesters fancied something altogether sleeker and more modern, and a layout that would make the most of the glorious views.

    Find out how they made their design decisions in the October/November 2015  issue of Beautiful Kitchens, which is on sale now at good newsagents, and also available to download for digital and mobile.

    Kitchen of the Week: Open plan and perfect for entertaining

    by  • August 25, 2015 • Kitchen Ideas

    Macfarlane-kitchenWhile a lot of hard work and upheaval involved goes in any major home project, the satisfaction that comes from completely transforming a tired space into a something beautiful, relevant and fabulous to use usually makes the pain worthwhile.

    The young owners of this beautiful space in Edinburgh ditched a run-down kitchen in a tiny side annexe to create a spacious and stylish kitchen-living space at the heart of their Georgian home.

    The couple both work in the hospitality industry, so this is a kitchen that’s designed for entertaining, with island cooking, a dining area, and comfy sofas for relaxing beyond.

    Find out more about about how they achieved the look in the August/September 2015 issue of Beautiful Kitchens. On sale now at good newsagents and available to download for digital and mobile.

    Kitchen of the week: shape-shifting in white

    by  • June 15, 2015 • Kitchen Ideas


    One of the things the owners liked about this room was the way the architect had maximised every inch of space by following the gradient of the neighbouring boundary. This resulted in a bit of an odd shape for the kitchen and, alas, the cabinetry that had been fitted had not been quite so successful at making the most of those precious extra inches.
