  • Family kitchen with breakfast bar and wooden worktops

    Family kitchen with breakfast bar and wooden worktops

    Use painted units to lighten up a kitchen, making it feel like a completely different space. A breakfast bar divides the cooking and eating areas here. It was made by installing a worktop on the end of a run of units. Keep it simple with classic metro tiles for a timeless way to shield your kitchen walls from water and food splashes. Here a blue/green tile creates a softer and more inviting look than white.

  • Classic compact kitchen with wooden cabinetry

    Choose wood for your kitchen – it has a natural warmth and softness that’s also strong, durable and versatile, making it perfect for kitchens. Give traditional oak a modern update with black granite worktops and white walls to create a contemporary contrast. A faux fur rug thrown over a chair is a great way to soften the harder edges of a classic kitchen.

    Bring a fresh new look to a kitchen by painting the units. A pale green creates a warming feel in a practical space.

A marble-style worktop is a lovely toning choice.

    In a small compact kitchen space, choose white units and a laminate floor. They are a practical choice that help to open up the space. If your kitchen opens out on to another room, continue the flooring to create a cohesive scheme that’s also easy to keep clean. Bring in a single bright accent piece to add a bit of colour, such as the tuquoise chair shown here.
