Under what conditions would a total rewire be needed?Whether or not you need to rewire depends on how the existing wiring will be affected by the project, Anatoly explains. “As a rule of thumb, if the wiring is 10 years’ old or you’re changing 50% of the outlets, you’re better off rewiring the whole system,” he says. “Recent regulations [BS7671, 2015/16] stipulate that consumer units need to be made out of metal (not plastic), so, in most cases, the fuse box will need to be replaced,” he adds.“If the wiring is old and uses the old cable colours (black instead of blue for neutral), then a rewire is needed,” Luke says. “If you want to move lots of light fittings, or add more fittings and/or more lighting circuits to a room, then it’s sometimes easier to rewire the whole space. If the existing wiring is dangerous, then obviously it should be replaced.”“If you’re buying a house or looking to undertake significant work on a dwelling, it’s worth getting a qualified electrician to carry out a survey,” Stuart recommends. “This will quickly highlight the condition of the existing wiring and whether you need to replace it or not. “If you’re refurbishing, always consider the state of the electrics,” he adds, “because replacing them at a later date once you’ve completed the main works will not only be costly, but very disruptive.”

Highlight with whiteIf you’re going double-dark in your kitchen, it’s a good idea to include a few paler colours, too, to ensure there’s enough illumination for cooking and to really showcase the darker elements.Here, the designers have incorporated a section of slim white cabinets that contrast sharply with the dark units and worktops elsewhere. The white walls and LED lighting add to the bright feel in the paler section, helping to frame the stylish black granite worktops and dark wood veneer on the cabinets.Planning a new kitchen?

1. Highlight With White If you’re doubling down on deep tones in your kitchen, it’s a good idea to include a few paler colors as well to help ensure that there’s enough illumination for cooking and to really showcase the darker elements. In this kitchen, a couple of white cabinets contrast with the dark cabinets and countertops. The white walls and LED lighting add to the bright feel in the paler section, helping frame the stylish black granite counters and the dark wood veneer on the cabinets.

Like herringbone floor. Also like light upper cupboards as part of darker design. Dislike style of dark wood cupboards though

Wood top on island with dark cabinets, white countertop elsewhere, maybe mix up with white cabinets?
