Kitchen Design Inspiration
I’ve started 2015 with a determination to finally update our kitchen. It’s a fairly standard shaped galley style kitchen and, typical of so many London homes, space is severely restricted. So clever cupboards and storage solutions are certainly the order of the day. But my husband and I love to cook. And most of our happiest evenings are spent together in the kitchen, polishing off a bottle of wine (or two) whilst navigating our way through a recipe. It really is the heart of our home so, while we need to think in practical terms for a redesign, we want it to be a really stylish space too. So, I’ve taken to Pinterest for inspiration. Here are some of my favourite kitchen design ideas so far.
This is a beautiful grey kitchen (below). The brass fittings enhance the modern luxe effect.
I am obsessed with white subway tiles! I’m sure they’ll find a way into my new kitchen. But looking at these lighter schemes, I think I’m leaning towards something darker for my home. I’ve got a bit of a bee in my bonnet about revealing the original brickwork behind the hob. Wouldn’t that look amazing against black cabinets?
If your kitchen is small, like ours, there’s still no reason why you can’t embrace a dark colour scheme. I think the kitchen below demonstrates how glamorous and gorgeous that can look. Up the ante with brushed brass hardware or copper pans.
But, if you’re not convinced by dark kitchens, why not adopt a half-and-half scheme, with dark floor cabinets and lighter wall units or shelves.
And if you need colour in your life, then pick one and go all out with it! This warehouse home (below) has beautiful exposed brickwork in the kitchen, forming a striking backdrop to the turquoise blue cabinets and industrial style furniture.
I’ll keep you posted on our kitchen plans over the coming weeks. For now, we’ve pinned a number of beautiful kitchens to inspire your own project on Pinterest
