MB HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, March 6, 2012 1 Inside HOT TRENDS IN KITCHENS COOKING UP NEW COLOURS AUTUMN IN FULL BLOOM ADD COLOUR TO THE MIX GET CREATIVE IN KITCHEN Janita Singh A great kitchen not only makes cooking enjoyable, but brings families and friends together. ECO-CHOICES Sustainability is becoming a key consideration in the kitchen design process. An eco-conscious kitchen cuts down on resources and saves you money in the long run. Go green in the kitchen -- with energy-efficient dishwashers to environmentally sound flooring made of reclaimed wood and tiles. Consider installing a window in your kitchen that can be opened. This is a simple energy-saving alternative to using the rangehood. Kitchens that open on to outdoor decking and patios for easy, year-round entertaining are fast becoming a priority in homes. Adding bi-fold windows from the kitchen to an outdoor bar is another stylish way to bring the outdoors in. LATEST TRENDS GIVEN that food and homes are at the centre of comfort and culture in Australia, it's no surprise Australians are obsessed with making their kitchens the best feature of their homes. A great kitchen not only makes cooking enjoyable, but brings families and friends together and is one of the spaces that will add value to the house. A well-designed kitchen also means more space for entertaining. For these reasons, kitchens are not only the heart of the home but a serious investment. And there are exciting things happening here. Today's kitchen designs give greater emphasis to comfort and style. Homeowners want a space that's practical and open in design, boasting more work and storage space and pref- erably with that wow factor. Many time-poor people also love to cook and enter- tain so kitchens today some- times feature televisions and sound systems. Colours also play an im- portant role. Bright kitchens, colour blocking and even brighter ap- pliances are all the rage.
