    Open-plan kitchen

    A darker wood can look very smart against crisp white walls and pale floor tiles. Here, the island has been built around a pillar, but incorporated it into the design rather than sitting either side of it. Inside the cupboard is the perfect space to keep trays. A power-point fitted at the end of the island is invaluable for plugging in whisks, blenders and other cooking appliances.
