Contemporary cream gallery kitchen with wood flooring. Go for a contemporary, urban look by opting for handleless cream gloss units - this sleek design is perfect for galley kitchens, such as those in Victorian properties. Add extra reflective surfaces with a coloured glass splashback and granite worktop. Built-in appliances fitted at eye level give the kitchen units a streamlined feel, while rich wood flooring adds warmth.
If you don’t have a separate utility room, you may also need to factor in a washing zone for your washing machine and tumble dryer. A combined washer-dryer will save space and can be tucked away behind kitchen unit doors when not in use. In an open-plan kitchen, you will also need a separate dining and/or living area, placed as far away from the work zone as possible so as not to disturb anyone eating or relaxing in those areas. A breakfast bar is a smart way to squeeze in informal seating in a small kitchen.
Pared-back aubergine, for a pretty kitchen with bags of country charm, turn to feminine shades such as soft aubergines and vintage rose. Don’t overdo it – a standout island unit will suffice. Pinks are from the warm side of the colour spectrum, so you can afford to introduce plenty of creamy background shades that will keep the décor on the sophisticated side of ‘girly’, and the overall look fresh.
