Whether you’re looking to upgrade your current scheme or planning a full-on renovation for the new year (check out our Project Planner kit, you’ll need it), there’s no doubt you can find inspiration and tips from real projects at the tap of a finger nowadays.
No matter your style, budget or the size of your space, with good research you can truly bring your dream vision to life. So, grab your latest KBB magazine issue, browse through Pinterest boards and explore interior design related hashtags on Instagram for an abundance of inspiration. To help you make the most of your screen time, here are ten amazing kitchen designs to get your moodboard going…
The mix and match of black and white cabinets, the copper accents and clever lighting sources from the grand skylight (my personal favourite) and spotlights surrounding it to the pendants above the island make this kitchen a stylish and practical design. With plenty of space to prep food and dine, the L-shaped layout with a central island allows for easy access to all utilities and appliances when cooking and entertaining at home – kitchen goals for sure.
Don’t be shy, go all-out on your favourite shade, be it a dark blue or a baby pink, and create your dream kitchen design. The brass tap, pendants and handles complement this sugary shade perfectly, plus the herringbone terracotta tiles that beautifully lead to the outdoors add an extra touch of interest to the scheme.
The modern rustic aesthetic
If you love that country-style look, Sharon’s 20’s lodge will provide all the inspiration you need. Go for warm, earthy tones for your cabinetry and island and pair them with natural textures through wooden flooring, bar stools and worktops. Plus, make sure to leave beams and bricks exposed to add the wow-factor.
A touch of luxury
Love the monochromatic look, but want to take it to the next level? Add a glamorous feel to your kitchen through marble-inspired worksurfaces and splashbacks, which are highly resistant to stains and scratches, making them a more practical solution for a busy household. Go for built-in appliances for a sleek look and sprinkle pops of brass and gold for the perfect finishing touch.
A floating dream
Not your average kitchen, Christina’s design is set in an idyllic house boat and is anything but ordinary. Aside from stunning views, this amazing kitchen features colourful cabinetry, patterned tiles, funky décor, house plants and statement pendants. What’s not to love?
One of the trendiest shades for kitchens at the moment is white. Oozing a sense of tranquility, this handleless design includes wooden finishes, minimal décor and built-in appliances for a cohesive look. Jennifer added dimension to the space through a statement rug with bohemian influences, which fits the kitchen perfectly.
Sleek and multi-functional
Make your space works harder with a practical layout that suits you and your family. For example, the island in this amazing kitchen features a breakfast bar as well as a dining extension with power sockets cleverly hidden, which can easily be used as a home office spot during the day. Not to mention the built-in hob, wine cooler and storage space for all cooking, baking and entertaining essentials.
The entertainment hub
The kitchen is the heart of the home, so apart from looking amazing it needs to be practical, too. Here at These Three Rooms, we love good banquette seating, even more so if it’s in a lush shade of sage green – the latest designs include storage space beneath for a clutter-free scheme. This banquette cleverly acts as an extension to this kitchen island creating a focal point in the room and the ultimate layout for entertaining, as the hob is placed facing the dining area. Jot down this idea for your future project.
Create an amazing kitchen design with a dark shade to make a statement and pair it with luxurious marble surfaces, exposed steel beams and metallic accents for an elevated look. Choose open shelving to display your cookbooks and crockery and add that pop of personality.
Pop of colour
Who doesn’t love a bold and bright kitchen? Go open-plan to design a spacious and colourful kitchen-diner, perfect for prepping food on those relaxing evenings after work or for gathering the entire family for a Sunday roast.
