Kitchen ‘is still the hub of the home’

When it comes to making home improvements, the kitchen is still arguably the most important room in which to invest.

Bernie Herlihy, deputy editor of Ideal Home Magazine, said most people consider the room to be the hub of their home. It serves a number of purposes, from being somewhere to cook and eat to an entertainment space.

There are several items that are highly desirable and could be fitted as part of a home revamp. “The island unit is something that most people want these days if they have the time and budget … [and] quite glamorous lighting in the kitchen can give it a slightly more WAG effect,” Ms Herlihy stated.

She was speaking at the Ideal Home Show in London, where more than 600 exhibitors are offering ideas and inspiration to homeowners on how to do up their properties.

Ms Herlihy went on to note that spending the majority of a budget in the kitchen is no bad thing, as it is a vital room and some of its features are expensive.
