Eclectic pink kitchen with blue accents
A statement kitchen involves stepping outside the ordinary to create a striking, memorable and characterful space. A strong pink and blue colour scheme brings the painted wood units in this traditional kitchen to life. Consider playing with texture and materials for a look that is completely bespoke to you.

A statement kitchen stands out from the rest. It can often be the realisation of a lifetime's dreaming - and savings, for that matter. Luxury materials - or at least simple materials used well - will have enormous impact. Sleek kitchen units and bar stools make this space both practical and stylish. A trio of glass pendants adds a touch of up-to-the-minute sparkle - a nice contrast to the traditional leaded casement windows.
This classic kitchen combines fresh white gloss units with a bespoke dining table and revamped second-hand chairs. This elegantly simple design is achieved by utilising a white-on-white colour scheme. The handleless cabinetry means that surfaces are absolutely free of adornment, creating a bold and minimalist look.
This modern kitchen with sleek accessories and a stylish kitchen island is ideal for entertaining. An oversized pendant hung over the island anchors the space and, when connected to a dimmer switch, can provide a range of light levels to suit the mood and time of day. The brown and yellow is a great retro combination reminiscent of the 1970s.

In a brick alcove in a country kitchen, you can't really beat a sleek navy blue range cooker for real rustic appeal. If your alcoves can't accommodate a cabinet, open shelves are a practical way to still make use of the space. Choose open shelving rather than cupboards in a small kitchen to keep the area looking open and airy.
A wooden window seat adds extra seating and bold, blue floor tiles have been used to border the island unit in this classic kitchen. Galley and linear kitchens are the obvious choice for narrow rooms, but can be the star of larger spaces, too. Galleys are designed to be both compact, ergonomic and ultra-efficient, maximising every inch of space for both storage and preparation.
Shaker-style cabinetry frames the bold red range cooker in this country-style kitchen, while wooden worktops echo the traditional-style dining table. Maximise your storage space with clever shelving units installed above and around the cooking area - perfect for housing cookery books and utensils. This simple red, white and neutral colour scheme helps to keep the finish tailored and smart.
Not every home is blessed with a vast open-plan kitchen but, if your room is on the small side, there's plenty to feel positive about. These red units have a distinctly retro feel. Get the look by customising your kitchen cabinets with high-gloss car paint - use a professional spraying company for a good finish.
Walls and Floors
This classic country kitchen is fitted with pale blue painted kitchen cabinets with black granite worktops and has a matching Aga. Metro tiles have a verstaile look that can suit all styles of kitchen, from modern industrial to country and classic. If you feel daring, don't stop at the traditional splashback - tile all the way up to the ceiling to maximise the feeling of space.
A simple monochrome scheme in this open-plan kitchen gives this spacious U-shaped area a crisp and clean look. The versatility of this design means it will work no matter what the size or style of your kitchen. To maximise brightness, opt for an all-white scheme. To add an element of contrast, worktops are covered in black slate.
