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.
Deep purples, colour blocking is a great technique for replicating the relaxed feel of freestanding furniture within the more practical, easy-to-clean reality of a fitted kitchen. In this colourful kitchen, Farrow & Ball’s rich Brinjal makes the fitted corner dresser appear like a separate piece – boosting its presence in the room. ‘Keeping the walls and ceiling pale will provide a blank canvas for the cabinetry and really lets the colours sing,’ adds Gillian McCollum, Director, Murray & Murray.
How to create your kitchen style. Once you have devised the perfect layout for your kitchen, you can start to inject some of your own taste and personality into it with the cabinets and finishes you choose. Finishing touches such as kitchen worktops, kitchen splashbacks, kitchen doors, kitchen flooring and kitchen handles will all have a huge impact on the overall look and feel of your kitchen.
Cream country-style kitchen with exposed wood beams and stone flooring. In a farmhouse choose a kitchen design that complements the original features in your home. Here cream cabinetry and pale stone flooring blend seamlessly with the vaulted ceiling and exposed wood beams. The island unit has been painted in coordinating stone and accents of pink and purple have been added with fuchsia pendant lamps, glassware and a pretty patterned blind.
