It can be tempting to fill a large room with more furniture or cabinetry than is needed, but by aligning with an L-shaped design, the clean lines, airiness and generous proportions of a kitchen can be amplified and enjoyed. Take this room as a prime example. There's a plethora of room, which could have all been swallowed up by extra cupboards, but by installing the storage and counters in an L-shape, the centre of the room is left free and clear for a stylish island and a pared back finish. It simply works so well.
What’s quiet, durable and softer underfoot than hard tile or concrete? Cork, of course! It’s also quite the sustainable option, as cork trees take only nine years to regenerate. And thanks to its natural texture, it’s one of the best slip-resistant options.
We recommend going with solid wood, in-frame doors for a quality finish. You then have the option of leaving the wood in its natural colour (with a varnish or wax finish), or splashing on a fresh coat of paint in the appropriate colour (just remember our tips from number one).
Open-plan living has become part and parcel of the 21st century. Think about all the various ones you’ve seen, both in real life and in design magazines / websites: a home office seamlessly connected to the living room; a bedroom sharing its open space with a bathroom; and, perhaps the most popular one of all, open-plan kitchens beautifully blending in with an adjoining dining room or lounge, or both.
