  • Grey shaker kitchen with dog cubby within the island

    Less is more when it comes to this refined, bespoke Shaker-style kitchen. A lack of fussy wall tiles and flooring lets the subtle, pale painted cabinets stand proud in this large room even though it is just few shades darker than the walls themselves. Creamy quartz work tops flow into the cabinetry while a unobtrusive stainless steel splash-back frames the huge double oven. The dog bed nestled within the island unit allows pets to stay safely out of the way but still feel in the thick of the action.

  • Scandi style open-plan kitchen-diner

    High-street finds and antique-market buys create a relaxed, mix-matched look in this modern open-plan kitchen. A simple colour scheme helps to knit the pieces together.  A large oak dining table zoned by textured rug is the centre of attention making this a practical space for family gathering. Include a sofa to continue the open-plan family living look.

  • Open plan kitchen-diner with blue island and cabinetry

    A row of floor-to-ceiling windows and a large skylight work together in this kitchen-diner to create a bright and airy space. Teal cabinetry and upholstery add a pop of contemporary colour. The row of three glass pendant lampshades complete the modern look.

  • Urban kitchen with white tiles and exposed bulb lights

    The space works really well, with the sink overlooking the garden and plenty of storage space. Black grouting and exposed bulbs coupled with neon signs give this scheme an urban, contemporary edge, while vintage elements give the kitchen a mismatched look.

  • Modern white handleless kitchen with black walls

    The bare bones of this kitchen are really very modern classic, but creative touches totally transform it. Black paint doesn’t take up much of the wall space, but the little bit you see really does look amazing. Where a kitchen is relatively narrow, a long island is a great idea. The seating area here acts as a second dining table.

  • Neutral wood kitchen with black worktops and lime-green accents

    Dark worktops are a practical choice, as food stains will be invisible. They also add a bit of drama to standard wood units. In any neutral scheme, a hit of colour works wonders and that’s just what the lime-green blind and other accessories do here.

  • Country kitchen with open wood shelving and pretty crockery

    Shaker-style units are great for achieving a country look. But what’s even more country about this room is the open wood shelving with pretty crockery on display. Open shelving makes a space feel less boxed in, keeps objects close to hand and looks pretty fabulous, too.
