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.
Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and scale. The trick is to surround pattern with something plain - except in the case of cushions. If you have bench seating, mix-and-match different designs for an informal feel. Take a look through our gallery to see which scheme’s the one for you!
An L-shaped kitchen works well in an open-plan kitchen design. A row of kitchen units runs along one side of the ‘L’, while a row of low-level units runs along the jutting out portion of the ‘L’ – an easy way to create a barrier between the kitchen prep and dining or living zones.
The work zone is where will have your fridge-freeze as well as your kitchen sink, dishwasher and kitchen waste bin - these should all be as close together as possible so you can tip leftover food into the bin, rinse the plates then stack them in the dishwasher with minimum effort. You might want to position your kitchen cabinets and drawers for storing crockery and cutlery close by as well, for ease of putting away.
