Like all rooms in your home, there will come a time where you decide that your kitchen needs updating. You may have some grand ideas for what your new kitchen is going to look like, or you may not even know where to start! If you are in the latter category, don’t worry, because there are several ways you can draw inspiration for anything from colour schemes to which Kitchen worktop to buy. This article will look into the sources that are best for kitchen ideas, helping you on your way to creating your perfect kitchen. Magazines There is a wide range of magazines dedicated to interior design and kitchen design specifically. Publications like Beautiful Kitchens magazine, Kitchens, Bedrooms and Bathrooms magazine and Utopia Kitchen and Bathroom magazine are full of ideas and features on the latest trends and products. Whether you want to simply change the colour of your kitchen or you want an entirely new design, these magazines combine the best products, ideas and tips to help you with your renovations. Exhibitions If you prefer a more hands-on, practical way of checking out kitchen trends and products, then consumer exhibitions such as the Ideal Homes Show are perfect. Manufacturers and designers are on hand to demonstrate their products and consumers can try them out for themselves, as well as attending talks on design and renovation. These exhibitions can allow you to gain a clear idea on what works for you and what doesn’t. Blogs/Websites If you want to gain some inspiration for your kitchen but you don’t want to leave the comfort of your home or office, then luckily there are hundreds of kitchen design blogs and websites that are full of excellent ideas, from cutting edge appliances to simple DIY tips that can work wonders on your kitchen. As well as articles, there are YouTube videos available that feature demonstrations and tips, adding a little extra detail to the articles and helping you to gain a clearer idea of what your finished kitchen can look like. Showrooms For perhaps the best perspective on potential kitchen designs and features, look no further than kitchen showrooms. By visiting a showroom, you will get to experience the look and feel of the whole kitchen, rather than having to judge it from a picture or video. You can stand in one of several kitchens in the showroom and picture it in your home, or maybe you’ll find a particular aspect of a show kitchen that you think will look great in your own home. Ensuring that your kitchen is designed the way you want it to look is important, especially with modern kitchens being used for more than just cooking. One of the first things that guests will notice in your kitchen is the surfaces – you can have state-of-the-art appliances, but if you have the wrong worktop in your kitchen it can damage the look and atmosphere of the room.
