Black and white kitchens for monochrome fans. A black and white scheme is always a sophisticated choice for a kitchen scheme and, whether you favour a traditional or modern scheme, monochrome is a palette that works perfectly both ways. From a chequerboard tiled floor for a 1950s diner feel, a black range cooker against classic white cabinetry for a country ambience, or the new wave of graphic patterns, outlines and silhouettes, there’s a black and white design to suit any scheme.
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.
Make sure you include enough kitchen storage. It’s easy to underestimate how much kitchen storage you will need. Make a list of all your kitchen equipment – pots, pans, crockery, cutlery, appliances, linen, cleaning products – as well as anything else you may need to store in your kitchen, from food and drink to the ironing board and vacuum cleaner. Once you have your list, you can design storage solutions around it.
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.
