AS SEEN IN YOUR HOME AND GARDEN

The kitchen is the heart of a home – a multifunctional space in  which families can relax, cook, interact, entertain and eat together.  Incorporating your own sense of style will ensure the hub of your
home is practical, beautiful and unique. 

Homeowners are looking for seamless integration between living spaces for entertaining and a connected family life. That’s why open plan design is the bedrock of 2016/17 kitchen trends.

Leading kitchen designers predict this trend will increase demand for sculleries (as an additional preparation room), and walk-in pantries in new homes this year.

“The open plan design centralises the kitchen. People want to cook and socialise simultaneously,” says Tracey Smith, designer and sales manager of Heirloom Kitchens, the national supplier to Generation Homes.
