Latest Blog from Stewart Kitchens & Bathrooms

I spotted an interesting article on the Ideal Home magazine’s website recently and thought I should share it with you. Here, according to the article, are 5 of the hottest trends for kitchens in 2019:

1. Green is the new black. Or blue. Apparently navy blue was the colour of 2018 as far as kitchens were concerned. This year it is all about green and botanically influenced tiles and wallpaper. Shades of emerald and forest green will rule.


I have thought this for a while and now an official study has confirmed that fewer than half of the adult population are confident undertaking DIY projects in the home.

The study was carried out by Local Heroes, a home improvement and repair service backed by British Gas.

2,000 adults were involved in the survey and just 41% said they felt positive and confident enough to tackle DIY jobs around the home, preferring to employ a local tradesman to do the job instead.


I know there are a multitude of issues to consider when planning a new look for your kitchen. Here are four important things to think about:

1. Functionality – never lose sight of the function of your kitchen. It is often the very heart of a home where meals are prepared and eaten and the family gets together regularly. This means the space must be used as efficiently as possible. There is what is called the ‘kitchen triangle’ made up of the three essential parts; the sink, hob and fridge. Take some time to draw this triangle before you do anything else.


I am aware that one of the most common problems people have in bathrooms is unsightly mould or mildew stains on walls and ceilings so I thought I would give you some ideas on how to deal with them.

Mould and mildew are the result of high humidity which occurs when there is a high proportion of moisture in the air. It often happens in the steamiest room in your home which is naturally your bathroom. In many cases it is an indicator of a problem with damp.
