A stylish kitchen floor makes all the
difference, but choose wisely as it has
to withstand a lifetime of spills, scuffs
and foot traffic. The most hard-wearing
flooring is concrete - it actually gets
tougher with age - and it brings a cool,
industrial look to the kitchen.
Porcelain tiles, limestone and rubber
sheets are also hardy and easy to clean.
Check that what is on trend will go the
distance as kitchen floors are a long-term
installation, and to get the perfect finish,
trust the job to professional fitters.
Think fridge magnet, think
gaudy holiday souvenir - but it
doesn't have to be this way.
Make the most of magnetic
forces and stick them to the
bottom of attractive spice jars.
You can then stick them on
the side of the fridge, or any
other large metallic appliance
that is taking up space, for a
storage solution that can also
grow into a colourful talking
point, the more jars you add.

Sometimes all it takes to refresh the
kitchen is a creative eye and a few
select accessories. Bring colour and
fragrance with an indoor herb garden
in cute pots, or throw away that
ancient toaster and invest in a new
statement one, with a kettle to match.
Search charity shops for coloured
glassware and arrange it in open
cabinets. And don't forget the wow
factor of fresh ingredients - hang
strings of onions from metal hooks,
white and brown eggs can be stacked
in baskets, and keep a large bowl filled
with colourful fresh fruit.
