Homeowners and property developers looking to add value to their buildings have been urged to consider the importance of well-planned kitchens in modern interior design. Ronnie Whelan, editor of Essential Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom magazine, said that kitchens have come a "long, long way" in terms of design and are no longer just "small, functional rooms". "With a trend for more open-plan living, the kitchen is the hub of the home where all the family can congregate, so it can cater for many different other activities and makes it worth spending the money on, as well as adding value to your property," she explained. A recent report from insurance company LV revealed that the average British kitchen is now worth almost £4,000, making it typically the most expensive room in the home.

Discussing this season's kitchen trends, Whelan went on to say that high-gloss finishes are "in vogue", while an increasing number of owners are mixing and matching coloured materials to create "truly individual" styles.

According to the LV research, the average spend on a cooking space has increased by 45 per cent since 2005. This rising expenditure is thought to have been driven by the kitchen's transformation from a functional food preparation area to the central space of all modern homes.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme on this site.
It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult
to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appearance.
I must say you have done a great job on this. Also, the blog loads extremely quickly
for mme on Internet explorer. Where are you hosted?

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're using?

I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm
looking for somethiung completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
