If your kitchen frame is in reasonable condition replace your bench tops, or island bench, or add an island bench if you have the room in your kitchen. An island bench is one of the most visible and most used features of any kitchen and offer the opportunity to make a design statement. Do you want an island bench full of cupboards or drawers, or would you like space to have some stools placed at your island bench for guests or family to sit and have breakfast.

Updating your lighting will modernise your kitchen and have a big impact on the overall look you have chosen. Whether you have chosen down lights, pendants or a chandelier. This kitchen features a wall of cabinetry which frames a stainless steel glass front wine fridge tucked under built-in stainless steel microwave nook next to stainless steel refrigerator.

We all want our kitchens and appliances to look good and function efficiently. Do your research before buying your appliances, there are many brands to choose from, ovens that cook faster and self-clean, induction cook tops with elements that switch off automatically when the pot is removed, and refrigerators with ice-makers and chilled water dispensers and what finish you want, such as stainless steel.
