Shake it up with a chevronI adore chevron wood flooring. For me, it creates a crisper, more contemporary vibe than a classic herringbone pattern. Chevron design is recognised by its distinctive ‘V’ shape, with angled boards designed to fit together at the ends, and was frequently found in large, elegant buildings, particularly in France. These days, it’s a great design trick for smaller spaces, as it will create an optical illusion that your room is wider or longer than it actually is.
What are built-in and built-under ovens?A built-in oven is integrated into your kitchen cabinets, generally at eye level, which is a convenient height for getting hot dishes in and out. A built-under oven is similar, but installed under the kitchen worktop, and it also typically will have a hob fitted on top, although it doesn’t have to. Both single ovens (one cavity) and double ovens (two cavities) are available as built-in or built-under, and this guide will cover all four variations.ProsChoice is what sets these ovens apart from freestanding or range cookers: choice of cooking methods, choice of price points and the freedom to position the oven at a convenient height for you. But how to discover which features to choose for your built-in or built-under oven? Read on…Let the experts help you decide whether a range cooker is more your thing
Extend your worktopIn this long, slim kitchen the owners have extended the worktop beyond the island unit - meaning you can tuck feet under without knocking knees while you enjoy your cuppa. When you’ve finished, you can also tidy stools away underneath to keep things streamlined.
