Laurent. Kitchen. September 29th , 2017.
The kitchen is the heart of the home and your table works hard to fulfill many functions – as a place for evening meals, family gatherings, somewhere children can do their homework, or a spot to sit with a cuppa and your laptop. Consider the space available, an extending kitchen table could be the best choice if you entertain occasionally. Choose from farmhouse tables with exposed wood tops, in raw oak or painted finishes to add classic style, and if you have space, a refectory table that can be paired with benches is perfect for families. Get a mid-century modern look with the curves and tapered legs of an Ercol table, or go for a contemporary style with a white steel frame kitchen table.
Pretty in pink, keeping strong colours, such as this Dusty Pink, to below eye-level will reduce their prominence in the room, allowing you to go a few shades bolder than you might otherwise dare,’ says Barry Walker, Executive Operations Manager, Chalon. ‘Use polished worktops such as granite or quartz in pale shades to bounce the light and keep the overall look fresh and uplifting. Timber accents on doorknobs and freestanding pieces will provide contrast and help stop the colour feeling flat.
Geometric kitchen splashback, if you love the tradtional black-and-white floor tiles, but you want something a little different, try the monochrome look with wall tiles instead. Here, the splashback is made of ceramic tiles in a zig-zag pattern, which follows the shape of the shelf, too. Industrial-chic kitchen, if you’re designing a monochrome kitchen, but are worried the effect will be too harsh, try a few black accessories teamed with bright primary colours; it really works in a utility-style kitchen like this one.
Hand-painted bespoke cream kitchen. Could this be your dream kitchen? We just love the sleek, made-to-measure cabinetry and curved island in this sunny, light-filled room. Here a cream colour scheme has been chosen for the walls, painted cupboards, island unit and flooring. Reflective surfaces including worktops, a glass dining table and polished flooring allow light to bounce around the room, which has a lovely garden view.
