If, like me, you’ve little in the way of spare time (and a tendency to see sitting on the sofa watching boxsets as crucial R&R) but have a kitchen project that needs some attention, there are lots of ways to get it moving without straining any major muscles.
There’s more planning advice online than ever before, so, here’s a taster to get your design off to a flying start.
Beautiful Kitchens magazine makes a great place to start your journey but if you’re not leaving the house, how do you get a copy?
Our latest March issue
Simple - Beautiful Kitchens is now available on your iPad – or you can also download a host of issues from Zinio. It’s packed with the latest stunning kitchens and there’s lots of clever ideas to inspire you.

Start to plan
Thinking about an extension or an exciting lighting scheme? We also have lots of useful guides for you on Housetohome.
Then, once you’re ready to move on to drawing up a plan, find a good online planning application. Ikea has a 3D planner as does Alno, Wren, B&Q and Magnet.

While some of these applications may need a bit of practice, its a great way to really start thinking about the space you have and provide a starting point before you see a designer. Voila – one kitchen mapped out, all without stepping out the door.
