  • Modern kitchen with dark grey units

    Modern kitchen with dark grey units

    Use a mix of white and grey to create a bright and spacious room that still holds character. Dark grey bottom units add a sleek and, contemporary edge to classic shaker style units while a white back drop and wall units keep the room airy and fresh. A white Quartz worktop is highly stain and heat resistant so is not only practical but acts to marry the colour scheme nicely together.

  • Bright white kitchen with glossy grey splashback

    Bright white kitchen with glossy grey splashback

    Enjoy the benefits of a clutter-free kitchen by including plenty of storage – with everything safely stowed away, it means you can keep just a few favourite objects out on display. Handleless doors look effortlessly sleek, with nothing to interrupt the clean and minimalist lines of the units. Complement gleaming white with industrial grey and stainless-steel finishes – there’s no need to get bogged down in colour matching, though, as the different tone of the splashback shows.

  • White kitchen with cherrywood units

    White kitchen with cherrywood units

    Consider sourcing reclaimed wood for an environmentally friendly way to create a new kitchen. These cherrywood units are made out of old chemistry-lab worktops and even still have Bunsen burner holes. Wood may be among the most traditional of materials, but several things make this space look super modern: the absence of wall-hung cupboards, handleless door fronts, concrete pendants and cool artistic accessories. Inspired? We are too.
