the STYLE RULES

FIND YOUR FORMAT

For ultimate versatility and for everything to have its own place, combine full-height wall and floor cabinets with above-counter units and open shelving. Integrated appliances also provide a clean look.

MIX MATERIALS

Introduce subtle pattern with white marble-effect worktops and a light wood-look laminate on floors. Long white wall tiles laid in a herringbone pattern add further interest.

EMBRACE MINIMALIST STYLE

Opt for frameless, slab-fronted cabinets for a seamless look and effortless functionality. Team with simple door and drawer handles.

PICK INVITING SHADES

Swap gloss for a contemporary matt finish in a soft pastel blue or green colourway. Contrast with terracotta lighting and accessories.

the STYLE RULES

UPDATE CLASSIC CABINETS

Achieve a cottage kitchen look with Shaker cupboards painted in a mellow vintage yellow. Team with a warm cherry wood worktop and finish with cup handles and door knobs in brushed brass.

DISPLAY VINTAGE FINDS

Over-counter units with glass doors are perfect for displaying collections of crockery and glassware. Balance with shelving painted in pea green to show off vintage kitchenalia.

CREATE A RUSTIC BACKDROP

Swap tiles for horizontal wood panelling to make a space appear wider. Get the look for less by using a panel-effect wallpaper.

MIX OLD AND NEW

Team a butler sink with a classic brass bridge mixer tap. Contrast traditional features by investing in a luxury 1950s-style fridge.
