Smeg's class-leading design arrives on Love It Or List It

Smeg has partnered with Foxtel Lifestyle Channel’s high profile hit series Love It Or List It as major sponsor and official supplier. Focusing on the renovation of one home each week, under the guidance of celebrity interior designer Neale Whitaker and real estate expert Andrew Winter, the programme’s format is a perfect fit with Smeg’s unique standing as the only brand to offer a wide range of distinctly different design aesthetics.

Each episode will showcase one home, each of a different architectural style, and when the renovations are complete, the owners will make a decision to either keep their home or list it for sale.

Appearing on the Lifestyle channel, one of Foxtel’s most popular, the 13-part series will see episodes feature each of Smeg’s five design aesthetics – Classic, Linear, Victoria, Portofino and Dolce Stil Novo – along with the brand’s award-winning small appliances.

As Neale Whitaker commented: “Smeg’s Classic collection means consumers can now have both style and superior cooking performance in the one appliance. Classic packs a visual design punch”. 

Love It Or List It airs on Wednesdays at 8.30pm on Foxtel’s Lifestyle Channel.

Newport, NSW episode kitchen transformation

A stunning coastline view and a large block are two reasons why Vicki and Mark love their family home in Newport, on Sydney’s northern beaches. What they don’t love is the layout, especially the small galley kitchen, separated from the rest of the house. After Neale Whitaker’s stunning renovation, the family are delighted with the interconnected dining, living and kitchen spaces complete with new sliding glass doors to take in the spectacular coastal views. A highlight is the new modern monochrome kitchen with Portofino freestanding cooker and rangehood in stylish anthracite, Classic stainless steel fridge, integrated semi-pro dishwasher, convection microwave and retro small appliances in sophisticated black, the perfect complement to the stone bench and hardware.

Erin and Tom’s stunning Queenslander, built over 120 years ago, is in Toowong, 4kms from Brisbane’s CBD.

Neale Whitaker rejuvenated the back of the house, knocking through walls and adding glass doors to open the space to the outdoors. He also added a new kitchen, complete with modern vintage Victoria ovens and cooktop, two iconic FAB fridges in sleek black and retro small appliances in black and white. The stylish family friendly transformation increased the home’s valuation significantly and the family have decided to ‘Love it’ for now.
