Welcome kitchen special

Hello and welcome to our kitchen guide which is jam-packed with inspiration for your cooking and dining zones. Kitchens are no longer simply places to prepare meals; they’re social spaces in which to share family life and enjoy the company of friends. Our real-life kitchen spaces starting on page 86 show how to do just that; each room has a different layout and style – whether classic, contemporary or a blend of both – you’re sure to find a few ideas to take away with you. Once you have found the type of look you’re after, it’s all down to sourcing the right products. To help, we take an in-depth look at hobs, which are becoming increasingly innovative and versatile appliances. Find out more about the latest generation of cooktops on page 74. We also have a round-up of the best British kitchen furniture designs on page 68, a selection of taps for you to peruse on page 80, and a whole host of kitchen schemes to compare on page 82. Enjoy!
