From compact apartments to large living spaces, modular kitchens offer maximum flexibility for modern homes, with the option to customise cabinets and cupboards to suit changing needs. Whether you’re seeking an urban rustic look, a minimalist scheme, or a strong industrial aesthetic, we’ve selected three designs for the heart of your home.

(Above) Merging fashion and design, the modular Diesel Social Kitchen, by Diesel Living and Scavolini, has iron structures and plenty of style. (Below) The latest release from the collaboration between award-winning designer Sebastian Cox and deVOL, is this stunning All-In-One kitchen island in woven coppiced Ash and sawn English Beech with copper details. Everything needed in a kitchen (quite literally including the sink) can be built in to this modern rustic unit and its modular design enables the addition of further cabinets as required; Boffi’s new Salinas kitchen was conceived by Spanish architect Patricia Urquiola; A non-traditional modular system, it combines matt black metal framework with open shelving. Countless different looks can be achieved, with an array of metals, industrial glass, lacquers and concretes.
