Vintage-style cream kitchen with red tiles. Go for cheery retro style! Cream is the perfect backdrop to a vintage-style decorating scheme. This country kitchen has a range cooker set into the chimneybreast, framed with a tiled splashback and painted wood overmantel shelf. Add a playful look with printed textiles in fun designs such as teacups, or classic red-and-white checks, and use shelves to display enamel kitchen signs and quirky memorabilia.
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!
A pantry or pull-out larder is the most practical way to store food, while a built-in wine rack, or even a wine fridge or wine cooler, can also come in handy. Kitchen cupboards with built-in spice racks or kitchen drawers with built-in dividers for cutlery are a great help when it comes to keeping things organised. A pull-out bin with an integrated recycling compartment makes it easier to do your bit for the environment.
Galley kitchens are the top choice of professional chefs and aspiring amateurs as they are super-efficient. Two runs of kitchen units run parallel to one another, putting everything within easy reach. This may not be the best solution for small kitchens, as you need an absolute minimum of 120cm between the runs of units to allow for safe traffic flow – 140cm if more than one person is likely to be cooking.
