5 Tips and Tricks to Update Your Kitchen from Better Homes and Gardens

Better Homes and Gardens give you a few tips and tricks to spruce up your kitchen…

1. Like to entertain?
If so, invest in an extra-large modern range that makes cooking for your guests a breeze.

2. Consider those appliances.
Coffee machines, blenders, mixers, milkshake machines; all of these tools have become indispensible parts of our kitchens, so make sure you take them into account when designing or updating your kitchen. If you don’t want them out on display make sure you have ample room to store them.

3. Don’t cover the bricks.
Don’t be afraid to leave brickwork exposed in your kitchen. The bare bricks will add warmth.

4. You can blend styles.
It is possible to successfully blend traditional, earthy and industrial elements in the one kitchen. Bring in old style country cabinets, use natural materials for the floor and finish off with commercial style benchtops.

5. Don’t forget the tech.
Whether it’s a TV or an all in one computer/TV/music station, don’t forget to include something in your kitchen so you can browse the net for recipes, listen to music or even watch Fast Ed on Better Homes and Gardens while you cook!

For 50 inspiring ideas, tips, tricks and trends on how you can update your kitchen, check out the April 2010 issue of Better Homes and Gardens.
