    Traditional aqua kitchen with industrial pendants

    Use a large island unit to separate the kitchen from the living area in an open-plan space. However, try to avoid treating the separate areas in your room as entirely disparate entities – picking out the colour of  the kitchen units in the sofa and cushions makes this space work together as a whole. Industrial pendants hung above an island give a traditional kitchen scheme a bit more edge.

  • Country kitchen with a Scandinavian touch

    Country kitchen with a Scandinavian touch

    Take a modern approach to decorating a country kitchen with a grey and white palette commonly found in Scandinavian decor. Natural materials, such as the granite and wood worktops, tie in perfectly with this Nordic take on the scheme. This kitchen has nothing superfluous about it, and is meticulously planned to ensure easy access to cabinets and plenty of space to move around the island.

  • Monochrome kitchen with wine glass chandelier

    Monochrome kitchen with wine glass chandelier

    White kitchens are super popular and, with hi-gloss fittings, handleless units and metro tiles, this one ticks off a lot of the top kitchen trends right now. The addition of a black splashback and worktops enliven the space, along with the red bentwood chairs. The wine glass chandelier is an absolute winner for sending some sparkle around the room and providing a great focal point.

  • Blue country kitchen with wooden beams

    Blue country kitchen with wooden beams

    Go for simplicity in a country kitchen. Vibrant colours and exotic tiles definitely have their place, but here all that’s needed is a pale-blue painted wall to jazz the look up. After all, the wooden beams are such a key part of this space that it’s best not to detract from them. Honey-coloured wooden units are another appropriate choice for a farmhouse kitchen, both for style and practicality.

Gold handles on the units have been chosen to complement the tiles.

  • Modern kitchen with children's dining area

    Modern kitchen with children's dining area

    Create a separate dining area in your kitchen for the small people in your life to enjoy. This one benefits from an ideal position next to the patio doors, which open directly out onto the garden, extending the ‘play area’. Meanwhile, the adults can easily keep a watchful eye. A rug helps to zone the space and modern chairs liven things up to the point that this look could be adopted for any age group – the furniture would just need to be a bit bigger!

  • Classic kitchen with painted island and stone flooring

    Classic kitchen with painted island and stone flooring

    Pick a few colours to continue throughout the house to pull the decor together. This kitchen has accents of dark blue, and antique brass is a recurring theme. The kitchen island’s deep tones, add a nice contrast in the light kitchen, and match touches in the blinds and curtains. If you’re using natural marble flooring, look at the tones first, and incorporate them into your room’s colour palette.

  • Modern kitchen with grey walls and green range cooker

    Modern kitchen with grey walls and green range cooker

    If you’re a keen cook, it might just be time to invest in an Aga (though maybe leave it ’til after Christmas, eh? You don’t want to be experimenting with the family’s turkey dinner now, do you?). This bright green option make a beautiful statement, and once you get the hang of the different way of cooking, it’s a dream to use. Keep everything else simple in the kitchen, such as hanging white lamps, stripped back floorboards and neutral walls and splash back tiles.
