As the kitchen can be the most valuable part of the home, it’s unsurprising that many pay home planners and designers to make their kitchen multi-functional and beautiful. From integrating bold colours and glass hoods to going full out with ingredient libraries, vintage touches or minimalist design, there are many options from which to choose. Therefore, if you’re unsure which one is best for you, we present the top 35 to get your creative juices flowing.
1) Rustic Kitchens
If you’re looking for a kitchen that emanates nature and has that 19th-century feel, then a rustic kitchen is the way to go. Complete with white-washed shelves, fixtures and ceiling features, we love the history this kitchen brings to its home.
2) Ultra-Modern Kitchen
If you’re a fan of modernism, then contrasting colours, as well as stylish cabinets, kitchenware and lighting is the way forward. Glass hoods are always a great feature, chic-ing up your cooking no end.
3) Add An Ingredient Library
If you love having the freshest ingredients for every meal you make, then keeping them close to the action is always handy. Why not include an ingredients library in your kitchen, ensuring you can reach everything you need and also see when you’re running out.
4) Yellow Panels
A great contrast to wooden or white fittings, yellow panels on your cabinets or other surfaces adds an air of Spring to your kitchen.
5) Luxury Kitchen
Marble counters, glass cabinets and a huge island with plenty of space for entertaining your guests can make any kitchen look luxurious and fabulous. Why not add chandeliers for that finishing touch.
6) Are You Red-y?
Whether you paint your walls or cabinets red, it makes your interior look mesmerising, drawing the eye to this fantastic colour.
7) Bold Colours
Adding bold colours like green, blue, purple or orange will make your kitchen look more spacious.
8) Glass And Steel Hood
For that touch of magic, a steel and glass hood can make all of the difference
9) Minimalist Design
If you have a small kitchen, longer cabinets allow you to store more items within limited space.
10) LED Lights
Adding LED lights underneath the cabinets and shelves adds a touch of charm and ensures your whole kitchen is well lit. Glow in the dark lights are also available.
11) Don’t Pan-ic
Why not hang all your pans on wooden shelves on the wall for that ease, efficiency and rustic look.
12) Vintage Farmhouse Look
You can have a vintage kitchen by painting your walls in white and brown and placing a few lamps here and there. Including an old stove completes the look.

If you like the sophistication a white kitchen brings but feel it needs something else, combining it with light grey can liven up the walls and cabinets.

Paint the kitchen cabinets mint to give it a more soothing and refreshing look.
