Take inspiration to make your kitchen just as chic as every other room in your home.
Are you looking for a new kitchen? Use this guide as a source of inspiration and ideas to help you create the room of your dreams.
1) CONTEMPORARY MATERIAL
It’s perfect for a functional, pared-back look and is a relatively inexpensive way to create a contemporary design that’s built to last. Add integral appliances to save space and give a streamlined finish.
2) VIRTUALLY INVISIBLE
With practically everything concealed behind doors, this look is particularly useful in an open-plan living area. Choose materials and colors that blend together for a seamless effect and include a decorative contrast, such as show-stopping lighting.
3) PASTEL COLORS
Blush pink is an interiors trend that’s found its way into the kitchen and onto cabinet doors, walls and accessories. A delicate hue provides a stunning contrast to gleaming chrome taps and hi-tech appliances. Choose painted timber doors for a classic look or go for a lacquered finish for a more modern scheme.
4) ECO SLEEK
Opt for cabinets made from ecofriendly materials, such as timber with FSC or PEFC certification, and sustainable fittings and accessories that have been recycled or can be recycled after use. Appliances that have a good energy-efficient rating will help the planet and save you money too.
5) BACK TO BASICS
This stripped-back look makes a virtue of architectural features such as polished concrete flooring, timber boards, brickwork, pipes and pillars. Chunky wood or concrete worktops and wrought-iron, copper, brushed or burnished steel frames and fittings lend an industrial edge.
A beautiful piece of stone, whether natural marble, granite or quartz composite, makes a stunning focal point. For impact, choose a colour that contrasts with the cabinets. Dark granite looks amazing against oak, for instance, or opt for
7) COLOR CONTRAST
Teaming two or more blocks of color in a kitchen-dining room is a great way to define the separate areas. The latest trend is for using boldly contrasting shades to create a bespoke look. Keep pattern to a minimum and choose neutral flooring for a harmonious overall effect.
