In This Episode

Lynda Reeves and Suzanne Dimma discuss their preferences and pet peeves in kitchen design. See why Lynda's kitchens always have a separate cooking station with stove, spices and utensils on-hand, and why Suzanne gravitates toward dark grout, gold hardware, open shelving and exposed hinges. Plus, learn why they both avoid bulky islands that are flush with the floor. Budget-savvy style editor Michael Penney shows us his character-filled den packed with colour, pattern, and affordable finds. See how he combined a statement sofa and Craigslist credenza, each only $100, with hand-me-down armchairs, a recovered chaise from his old apartment, and cheap Ikea drapes to create a warm and relaxing TV room on a budget. Finally, Cameron MacNeil offers design advice to a B.C. reader with a small, classic 1940s kitchen. Get his suggestions for cabinet colour, pulls, backsplash tiles, industrial lighting, over-range microwave, drapery fabric and flooring.
