A 1970s-inspired mustard yellow and chocolate brown scheme brings richness of colour and warmth to the kitchen area. Using cabinets around the fridge freezer makes clever use of the space. Restricting the floor-to-ceiling units to one area at the entrance and leaving the rest of the walls fairly open still allows for plenty of storage without enclosing the room.
A simple colour scheme of white and brown is made vibrant with the addition of retro patterned splashback tiles. The small bar area has a quartz composite support for a modern, chunky profile. It's a convenient place to have an informal meal and also provides valuable additional worksurface space.
Door-mounted spice racks create extra storage and help prevent smaller items from getting lost at the back of the larder cupboard. Jars with vaccuum lids are a great way to keep food fresh and look neat and tidy, too. Painting the inside of your cupboard doors as well as the outside will give your kitchen a perfectly-finished look.

This long, open-plan space extends into the garden. Simple, modern cabinets in subtle colours complement the bold tiles, and worktops with a light finish prevent the room from looking too dark. A row of pendants draw the line of sight towards the dining area and garden, which has been given an airy feel with floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Beautiful and elegant, this oak parquet timber flooring makes a stylish statement.
