    Country kitchen with red island and breakfast bar

    Red kitchen units lend themselves to Christmas decorations beautifully. Here, a red-berried display creates a simple a festive touch. A round table, integrated into an island worktop, can make a super-sociable breakfast bar (so nice not to sit in a row!) that takes up minimal floor space. Red leather bar stools keep the look co-ordinated.

    Modern country kitchen with accents of brazen red

    Adding pops of red to a country-style kitchen can create a bold and beautiful colour scheme. Search out red kitchen accessories with pretty patterns – and choose gadgetry such as food mixers, kettles and radios in red. Once your scheme is up and running, it’s fun to add more red splashes to it as you go along – think tea towels, napkins and ornaments with splashes of red too.

    Classic kitchen with a contemporary edge

    Storage in a kitchen is a key ingredient. A capacious cupboard with bifold doors maximises wall space and allows you to hide away china, glassware and small appliances. An oversized island provides extra cupboard space, as well as a practical working area. A white quartz worktop brightens the look and is easy to keep clean. Vintage-style pendant lights and chic designer bar stools bring the look bang up to date.

    Country kitchen with green painted units and tiled splashback

    Go for a speckled worktop – it’s great for hiding the odd crumb or mark. Positioning the oven at eye level makes it easier to put in and take out heavy dishes when cooking. It’s less awkward to clean, too. Choose simple square tiles behind the hob for a timeless way to shield your kitchen from water and food splashes.
