Choosing the right kitchen for you

So it’s time to get the kitchen of your dreams - but exactly what kind of kitchen suits your style and needs? Looking at all the options before you when you’re designing the perfect space is both exciting and a little bit daunting. After all, we’re talking about the heart of your home, where you’ll spend time making memories with friends and family over the years. 

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Today, we’re taking a little tour of some of the most popular styles you can choose from, and the different things you need to consider before jumping in.


First thing’s first

Before you start thinking about fittings, fixtures, and finishes, take some time to think about how the design of your kitchen will (or won’t) tie into the rest of your home. Try to opt for a style that isn’t too far removed from the overall look and feel of your humble abode; consistency is the key here. That’ll help you narrow things down and zone in on what kind of look you should go for early on. Once that’s done, it’s time to check out three of the most popular styles out there right now. 


Modern minimalism

If simplicity and sophistication are two words you love the sound of, then this is probably the one for you. These kitchens typically come with smart, sleek design features, gleaming chrome or metallic details, and practical, high-tech solutions to all your culinary needs. 

When it comes to cabinets and cupboards, why not go for current, on-trend colours like cool grey or teal tones? Elevate your splashbacks with vibrant berry hues or hexagonal white tiles; give your drawers a clean look with concealed handles and soft-closing cupboards to really bring home that modern aesthetic. 


Country chic

If you’re looking for something with a warm, countryside feel to it, then look no further. This style draws the bulk of its inspiration from the rural charm of your favourite farmhouses to craft a space that feels cosy and welcoming.

Get that country chic look by opting for wooden worktops, shaker cabinets, and rich autumnal tones across your colour palette. Turn your favourite glassware and earthenware pieces into a centrepiece by placing them into a glass-front display cupboard, keeping them safe without hiding them away in storage.


Classic charm

Looking for something that’ll stand the test of time? Go for a traditional style, bursting with timeless classics that’ll never really become dated. That means going for beautiful hardwoods like oak or walnut, choosing elegant, authentic pieces that’ll really last, no matter how busy your kitchen might be. When it comes to the details, keep an eye out for stunning ornate mirrors or frames, and crystal decanters and carafes to serve your favourite drinks in style the next time you have company.
