So what exactly is in Roost episode 6?
Green kitchens have been a big trend for a while and we have an enduring love affair with the colour. We walk you through decorating with green in your living room, showing you how versatile this colour is, and how a few simple ideas when using it can go a long way.
Find out how to introduce green furniture to maximum effect, how to mix different green tones and we bust the blue and green colour pairing myth.

As choosing a worktop is a crucial part of kitchen design, you'll need to be completely honest about how you and your family will use it.
Are you likely to take the time to look after it or do you want a low-maintenance option? Are you likely to put hot pans directly onto the worktop? Do you have young children that could give it a good bashing?
Once you have examined this and have found out each materials' various properties in the show, you'll be well equipped to decide what'll work best.
