It's amazing what some brilliant lighting can do to enhance a kitchen, LED lights are a great addition to any interior, highlighting the space beneath cabinets, while the modern design and all-white countertops are perfect for a small space.

2. Minimalist design

A minimalist kitchen can be striking too, especially when lighter wooden furniture is accompanied with all-white storage. Don't forget to add some personality with a vibrant eye-catching print against the wall. This one definitely stands out for its simplicity.

3. From your grandma

Bespoke decor or antique elements are essential in a rustic kitchen, it may be time to consider restoring that old storage unit from your grandma's kitchen for that vintage feature that is traditional and trendy too.

4. How about colour?

Red may be daring for some, but it could also make your kitchen a funky and quirky space that exudes energy, passion and character. Pair the red tiles with a white farmstyle cabinet design and add flowing curtains, tablecloths and old-fashioned tableware for that authentic look.

5. Be practical

Consider functionality and practically when planning furniture and layout, especially in a kitchen. Search for ideas that make your utensils, spaces and counters easy to clean and maintain, renew those worn out cabinets by applying this modern design and replace the wooden drawers with metal and glass.

6. Textured tiles

This kitchen may look as though it was drawn from a cartoon, but it's the wooden mosaic tiles that will instantly upgrade your space, and it's easy to install and maintain, making it an awesome choice for the flooring and even as a splashback.

7. Interesting pieces

Enhance a boring kitchen with some modern metallic elements, stainless steel doesn't only need to be for your cooker hood, it will create an industrial design when incorporated in your countertops, while you're at it, consider a colourful accent for that decorative edge.
