After the house itself, buying a kitchen is one of the biggest investments you’ll make in your home. Spending a scary amount of money in one go requires a period of research, weighing up options and making a whole series of decisions – and it isn’t easy, we know. But never fear, we’ve got a basic guide to the whole process.
Of course, an important part of the research stage is taking a look at what other people have done, and with this in mind the real-homes section has plenty of kitchen (and bedroom and bathroom) inspiration. Five almost completely contrasting styles are on display, from a professional-look kitchen to classic cabinetry to futuristic curves.
For those of you concentrating on a bathroom or bedroom project, we have a guide to the very latest baths and taps, and what to consider while choosing, plus there’s a round-up of everything you need to know about buying a new duvet or pillow. And for interiors inspiration, look no further than our stunning shopping pages, this month channelling all things abstract.
Finally, going back to kitchens for a moment, if you’re a keen cook then chances are you already own or have always wanted a range cooker. We've got everything you need to know to start planning your next purchase. Happy cooking!
