1. End the monotony

If you feel as though your kitchen is a neutral, boring mess, then consider something different and dynamic with textured stone slabs that forms the base of a kitchen island. It has a classic and rustic effect, while being neat, durable and attractive.

2. White expansion

Create the illusion of a larger kitchen with all-white furniture and elegant lighting. This will accentuate the small, narrow spaces and when paired with simple furniture and accessories, this kitchen will be pretty perfect. Choose a shiny veneer to coat the furniture and reform old tables easily and economically.

3. Marble worktops and dark wood

Dark wooden cabinets such as mahogany, birch, cedar and oak are an excellent choice to create an elegant atmosphere. Choose a marble as the main material and your kitchen will have a stylish first-class finish.

4. Modern pieces will add value

There’s nothing more luxurious than entering a kitchen that is filled with life and character, and if you have some modern fixtures, lighting and fittings in your kitchen, the space will no doubt be attractive and eclectic.

​ 5. Create a colourful atmosphere

Utilising colours to make your kitchen more decorative is a fantastic idea, but it doesn’t mean you need to go for a permanent solution. Opt for vibrant chairs, vases, containers and glasses and you can switch them out every season. It’s much cheaper then replacing your cabinets and tiles every year! But, be careful not to go with too many contrasts in colour

​6. Small ceramics to the wall
