Ensure the hub of your home is looking and working its best with our answers to some common kitchen queries


Q: I want to get rid of the dated vinyl in my kitchen and would love to replace it with a smart laminate instead. Do I need to choose a special design that’s suitable for kitchens?

A: David Snazel, Hard Flooring Buyer at Carpetright, has this advice…

if you want the look and feel of real wood without the high cost or maintenance, then you should definitely consider laminate. the great thing about laminate is that if you choose carefully, it can be used in every room in the house, even kitchens and bathrooms. there are many shades and styles available, so order free samples online to make sure you like how they look and feel in the space before you make your choice. Lighter wood designs can really brighten up a space while richer wood tones can add warmth. the Quick-step impressive range at carpetright, benefits from a water-repellent hydroseal coating, making it the perfect option for a kitchen. if you’re planning to diY, we stock a wide range of laminate that you can take away on the day, or if you’d rather call in an expert, we offer a hassle-free service where we can deliver and professionally fit the laminate for you.

About Your Home Magazine

We’re halfway through the year now and summer is in full swing, so there’s no better excuse to get out into the garden. In this month’s issue we’ve got lots of great ideas to help make the most of your time outdoors. On page 36 we take a look at this year’s hottest trends for outdoor living. From classic country style to laid-back coastal blues and tropical brights, you’re sure to find a look you love that will help you create your perfect room outdoors. And, if you’re feeling creative, then try your hand at our brilliant upcycling project (p.62) which transforms an unwanted old bed into a gorgeous garden bench, or stitch up a storm and create our beautiful embroidered hanging storage pockets (p.64). If your beds and borders are looking a little lacklustre, then take inspiration from the latest trend from the RHS show gardens – elegant blue and white is the most beautiful colour combination to make your garden look truly stunning this summer (p.114). We’ve also got a simple step-by-step project (pardon the pun) to help you create a set of rustic log steps in your garden (p.66). The warmer weather also means most of us start to hanker after lighter, fresher meals, so we’ve rustled up some super salad recipes in this month’s food section. The roasted sweetcorn and halloumi salad is my favourite. Finally, we’ve also got some truly inspiring makeovers and real reader homes for you to take a peek at. Enjoy!
