My wedge-shaped kitchen challenged all my ideas

Lisa Reiner’s new kitchen was an unusual shape

Insider info

WHO LIVES HERE?

Lisa Reiner, 43, is a Marketing Executive who lives with husband Simon in St Albans, Hertfordshire.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT THE ROOM?

‘I love the open feeling and that it’s so light and airy. It’s great to be able to sit and have a coffee and chat too – amazing considering the space is so small.’

DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS?

‘In a small room have a long flow of units to maximise storage and allow open areas for possible seating – even a couple of stools will be a welcome addition.’

WHAT WAS WRONG WITH THE OLD ROOM?

Ugly units rammed into every space in the wedge-shaped room made it feel cramped and claustrophobic. There was nowhere to sit and just a tiny window at one end.

About Your Home Magazine

Now that all the festive fun is over and the decorations have come down your home can look a little sorry for itself, but not for long. In this issue we’ve got plenty of quick, easy and affordable ideas to give your home a fresh new look for the year ahead. While the sales are on, it’s a great time to bag a bargain, but rather than just buy an item because it’s cheap, we explain which homewares are really worth parting with your cash for in the sales (p.42). But before you go mad in the sales and bring back lots of bargain booty, now is the time to give your home a post-Christmas detox. On page 36 we show how to clear your clutter in style and discover space you never knew you had. If your bathroom and kitchen are looking past their best, turn to pages 46 and 52 to discover how easy it is to freshen them up with a few simple additions, from modern metallics to rustic touches, we’ve got lots of ideas to inspire you. If your New Year’s resolutions involve getting fitter and eating better, then turn to page 56 where we compare the latest wearable fitness trackers, while on page 12 we put personal smoothie makers to the test to see which give the best results. We’ve even given this month’s recipes a healthy spin, so you can eat well from breakfast through to supper. Finally, we’ve given our 12-page Make it Easy pull-out section a fresh new look for the New Year. Turn to page 59 for exciting craft, sewing and upcycling projects, plus the latest must haves for your craft stash.
