We dive behind the scenes into the realities of a full kitchen renovation. Learn kitchen reno tips and mistakes to avoid.

Our guest Kate Toon renovated her kitchen, and the results are stunningly gorgeous. In fact, it would be fair to say that Kate’s kitchen is Nigella Lawson worthy.

However, the process wasn’t quite so glamourous.

Kate shares why she renovated her kitchen, what the process involved, and what she learned along the way.

Plus, find out why every kitchen needs a #PoshBin

If you’re thinking of embarking on a kitchen renovation this is a must listen. If you’ve already completed a kitchen renovation, Kate knows your pain, tune in for a totally relatable giggle.
