This Shaker-style kitchen has been given a unique update with some doors painted in bright colours.

If you're looking to paint your unit doors, buy a tester pot and paint a piece of lining paper. Pin it to the front of the unit to see how the colour looks in your space.

4/6 Coffee zone

Transform a tight corner into a usable space by squeezing in a base unit and countertop.

Leave your appliances on show and use the counter as a dedicated coffee-making area.
