Mostly 1: You should choose a classic kitchen. You want your kitchen to have longevity and to look good for years to come. Quite right too – a kitchen is a real investment. By choosing classic, timeless colours and making the space as practical and useful as possible, you will create a kitchen that is going to serve you well long into the future.
Mostly 2: You should choose a traditional kitchen. The farmhouse look will work beautifully in your home. Think range cookers, shaker units, tiled walls and Belfast sinks to find your perfect aesthetic. Traditional island units and oak tables look stunning in large kitchens, whereas smaller kitchens can maximise on storage and workspace with wicker baskets and wooden worktops.
Mostly 3: You should choose a modern kitchen. Appearance is key for you. Modern kitchens have clean lines, no clutter and a high-end appearance, which will suit you down to the ground. Choose stainless steel or black appliances to suit your lifestyle and to fit in with the look of your home.
Mostly 4: You should choose a high-tech kitchen. Chances are, space is valuable to you and you’re concerned that you won’t be able to fit everything in. Never fear – many accessories and appliances are now fully integrated. Choose anything from pan drawer recycling bins to combination microwaves and warming drawers without them imposing on your precious work surfaces.
