Cream kitchens are one of the most popular styles – with other colours such as ivory, off-white and buttermilk also popular choices. This colour lends itself to a number of decorating styles, from rustic to contemporary. A new kitchen is a huge investment, so it’s no surprise that so many of us opt for a shade that will stand the test of time. You might choose an ultra-modern glossy cream kitchen that combines streamlined cabinetry with the latest appliances, or perhaps use painted cream cupboards to transform a cottage kitchen that has low ceilings.
Begin by separating your kitchen into different zones for cooking and work (food prep and washing). Your cooking zone includes your oven, hob or range cooker, an extractor fan and a microwave if you have one. Make sure this area is not in the pathway to a door or blocking the main thoroughfare through the room – handling hot cookware while people are trying to walk past you is a recipe for disaster.
Cream country kitchen with farmhouse table and spindle chairs. Why not opt for freestanding furniture instead of fitted kitchen units? Choose pieces such as a painted cream sideboard for storage, a dresser where you can display favourite china and glassware, and a large farmhouse table surrounded by spindle chairs for family meals. Fit shelves instead of wall cupboards for kilner jars, cookware and serving dishes - touches of copper, pink and stone bring this country kitchen scheme to life.
