One of the most exciting aspects of design is that it’s a constantly changing landscape, with a smorgasbord of new innovations and ideas for you to choose from. When it comes to your kitchen design, there is so much inspiration available to create a truly personalised space. Today, we’re taking a look at some of our favourite kitchen design ideas which you can integrate into your plans.

1. Neutral palette

The neutral palette continues to reign supreme in kitchen design and for good reason – it offers a timeless look and works particularly well in smalls spaces. Remember that neutral doesn’t just mean white, you can also consider options such as grey or cream.

2. Natural light

Try to introduce as much natural light as possible into your space with large, open windows, glass doors or feature skylights. You can even opt for windowed splashbacks to let in light.

3. Island bench

An island bench is a practical addition to any kitchen, and it can be used for food preparation and additional seating, as well as for extra storage.

4. Butler’s pantry

A hidden butler’s pantry with storage, bench space and a sink makes entertaining and cleaning up a breeze. Depending on the available space, you can also include appliances such as a dishwasher.

5. Maximise storage

The more storage the better in your new kitchen, so look out for clever storage ideas to incorporate into your design. Think about including integrated storage to conceal smaller appliances for an uncluttered look.

6. Handles with character

To inject some personality into your space, opt for some character handles on your cabinets which reflect your personal style. Metal handles in copper or rose gold are making a comeback, and these small touches add texture and interest.

7. Task lighting

For the ultimate in functionality, consider task lighting which can be positioned below your overhead cabinets to illuminate your bench during food preparation.

8. Feature flooring

Your choice of flooring doesn’t have to be only functional – it can also add character to the space. Feature tiles are easy to maintain, and can be a great feature in an otherwise neutral kitchen.

9. Touches of blue

If you want to keep up with the latest colour trends, shades of blue are popular at the moment and offer a classic look. Navy in particular is a stylish option, and can be integrated into your cabinetry with great effect.
