Make your kitchen a more sociable space

Today’s kitchens are about much more than just cooking – follow our top tips to create a space that meets all your needs

Our hectic lives require plenty of multi-tasking, so it’s really beneficial to be able to offer help with homework while preparing the evening meal, or to catch up with friends or family while tackling the washing up. In addition, when throwing a dinner party, it’s much more sociable to be able to cook and entertain at the same time. Whether your kitchen is a modest space with room for a small table, or you’re fortunate enough to have a large open-plan kitchen diner, making the most of what you have is key to creating a more versatile space. Read on for our expert advice and great ideas to inspire you.

About Your Home Magazine

I know that November isn’t everyone’s favourite month, but I think there’s something rather cosy about coming home on a cold, dark night and curling up on the sofa in front of the fire. If you’re thinking of investing in a wood-burner to warm up your home this winter then turn to page 115, where we’ve got the low-down on the latest models and what you need to consider before you buy. Talking of making your home warm and toasty, do take a look at George Clarke’s column this month, where he shares his expert advice on insulating your home (p.111). Of course nothing beats, a tasty comforting supper on those chilly November nights – so do try our delicious recipe suggestions on page 100, packed with warming spices! I know many of you are keen to be braver when it comes to using pattern in your home, so on page 36 we show how to make it work for you, from balancing scale to creating the illusion of space and, of course, our pick of the latest designs for wallpapers and fabrics to inspire you. Many of us dream of living in a period property with gorgeous plasterwork and beautiful fireplaces, but in reality many of them have had their original features removed or damaged over the years. In this month’s home improvement feature, we take a look at what steps you need to take to restore your period home to its former glory and where to look for affordable, original materials (p.106). Happy decorating!
