Forget minimalist, how about a maximalist kitchen?

POSTED ON 21st July 2022

Layer pattern, texture, and colour to create a kitchen that is totally ‘extra’!

A new kitchen is exciting but can be overwhelming too. Due to the investment, and to be sustainable, you need the kitchen you choose to last a really long time so design decisions that you make now, still need to appeal in 10 years or more.

POSTED ON 18th May 2014

White kitchens continue to be the most popular choice by customers. This is because a white kitchen acts as a blank canvas that you can add to in any way.
