Sleek and modern with a durable granite worktop, the island is perfect for cooking while entertaining, and maximises storage. The cherry-wood units add a traditional touch, while the designer bar stools keep things modern. Contrasting floor coverings have been laid in a curve to echo the shape of the island and keep the kitchen area separate.

The central location of the kitchen island is perfect for entertaining while preparing food. Light wells pull in loads of natural rays, and the tiny star lights – a departure from normal ceiling spots – are on dimmers to create different moods.
A split-level island is perfect for a family kitchen that has multi-functional needs. It creates more worktop space, and the lower level is perfect for preparing food whilst still chatting to guests or children doing homework, who are sat at the higher level.
Create a kitchen with a timeless style that will last and last. Choose white kitchen units and team them with stainless-steel appliances for a simple yet classic look. The lattice on the front of some of the cabinets adds a touch of individual style.
The mix of pattern and colour makes this sunny kitchen-diner stand out. The owl wall rug is an original focal point and adds personality, while the contrasting fabrics on the chairs help to inject some playful colour into the traditional white room.
This modern kitchen-diner is user-friendly, practical and maximises space with innovative storage units. A discreet horizontal window has been added that affords glimpses of the street without the family being overlooked, and also pulls valuable light into the room. The look is finished off with modern stools and fresh accessories.
This kitchen and dining room were knocked into one to create an open plan space. White gloss units and a Corian worktop give the room a light, modern feel. A large fabric panel creates an eye-catching focal point on the dining room wall.
An eye-catching fuchsia island with a stylish, handleless design makes this kitchen a real show stopper, with plenty of storage and worktop space. The rest of the kitchen is kept relatively simple so that this bold central island can shine.
This kitchen is a fantastic mix of hi-gloss, vanilla units and spring lilac tones, emphasised by the glass worksurfaces. The walls, painted in Lilac White, pick up the soft lavender shades of the worktops and splashbacks, and the raised island offers ample storage and preparation space.
