1. Simplified beauty

With its clean, white cabinets and subtle subway tiles, this kitchen retains its classic feel without being too sterile, thanks to the warm wooden island in the middle and matching stools. Perfect for the family who likes to enjoy a casual chat or a snack between meals.


2. More is more

From multi-patterned rugs to bright tiles and busy shelving spaces, this kitchen utilises every inch of space to cultivate a creative yet classic black and white room, perfect for testing and trialling exciting new recipes every night of the week.


3. Night and day

Enjoy a little mystery with a kitchen that takes the best of a darker pallet and mixes it with bright colours and natural light. This open kitchen space has everything in the one area but allows for the opportunity to breathe thanks to the high ceilings and inviting windows.


4. For the love of outdoors

Part greenhouse part kitchen, this space takes the best of outside and brings it back in. With enough room to house indoor plants, herb gardens and decorative items – it’s the perfect arena for those who have a bit of a green thumb and love incorporating fresh ingredients into their meals.


5. Space saver

Not every kitchen has to be big. For those of us dealing with smaller areas, optimising the space with innovative design thinking is a gamechanger. Just like a babushka doll, this kitchen features drawer within drawer within drawer, and it’s the perfect way to stash all your utensils, crockery, pots and pans.


6. Country chic

It’s one thing to head off to the farm for a quiet life but it’s another to entirely decorate your house in plaid. This earthy and neutral-toned kitchen has the solution for those dreaming of a life off the beaten path but who are still searching for a simple and modern design to complement their surroundings.


7. Nothing to hide

While some of us love stashing away our wares, there are others who want nothing more than to put their items on display. This kitchen shows you how a simple approach can work without the need for cupboards or storage solutions. Easy, simple and efficient.


8. Magic carpet ride

What’s the best way to bring a dash of colour and warmth to your kitchen? Why not add a rug? Rugs aren’t just reserved for the lounge room, hall or bedrooms. Place one or two rugs in your preferred kitchen area to help tie the room together and bring one-toned rooms to life. Just make sure the rugs you use are quite thin, the appropriate pattern to complement your colour scheme and preferably a colour suitable to hide bolognese sauce stains!


9. Take a seat

There’s nothing more comforting than a booth, but when it also doubles as the kitchen bench, dinner table and communal living space – it’s all the more worth it. Best of all, the added storage below the seating area means less clutter and more room for the whole family.


10. Industrial chic

If you’ve got the space, why not use it? This kitchen could double as a barn, and to make the most of the high ceilings, beams and additional overhead light, this family has added in a moveable ladder to ensure easy access to the additional storage. It’s never been more fun reaching for the spice rack
