Opt for a natural wooden table to add that rustic element in your kitchen. You can't go wrong with a wooden table with a red hue, eclectic lighting and white cabinets.

4. Be different

Grey kitchen cabinets in a retro style are chic and attractive, while a turquoise splashback incorporates a quirky aspect that is perfect if you consider your personality to be a little adventurous. 

5. L-shape

An open plan kitchen may require more thought, especially if space is limited. An L-shape kitchen takes full advantage of the space available for storage and even a quaint dining area that suits your decor and layout.

6. Shabby chic

Have you ever considered a shabby chic kitchen design to enhance the charisma and charm of your home? A wooden table is a great way to include a retro feature that doubles up as extra work space for those late night projects.

7. Informal seating
