    Modern white gloss kitchen in period home

    This modern gloss kitchen contrasts beautifully with the traditional architectural elements. An abundance of storage space means that no clutter can interrupt the elegant minimalism of the scheme.

    White marble kitchen with bar stool

    An all-white kitchen isn’t easy to keep clean, but it does look amazing! Choose darker-coloured flooring and seating to provide contrast and add cut flowers for a splash of colour. In a minimal scheme like this, choosing a different-coloured bloom every time you buy flowers will make the room feel fresh each time.

    Modern kitchen with Cubist-inspired design

    The vast oak island in this contemporary kitchen can be used as a prepping station, a breakfast bar and storage thanks to the built-in cupboards underneath. The red glass splashback and contrasting wood and white units create a striking Cubist look. The dark stone floor, meanwhile, provides a dramatic backdrop which shows off the rest of the kitchen.

    Kitsch pastel kitchen-diner

    Knock a kitchen and breakfast room into one for a more spacious feel – and be able to keep an eye on the family! Unite a multifunctional space like this by using a single colour on the walls, then demarcate the eating area from the food prep and cooking zone by laying a different flooring – in this case a pretty patterned vinyl.
