It's easy to get overwhelmed by all the different styles of kitchens out there right now, but instead of thinking of all the variations as leaving your spoilt for choice, we think you should immerse yourself in as many images as possible, so as to settle on some really amazing ideas for our own space. Any professional kitchen planner will tell you that you can pick and choose different elements, in order to concoct a truly unique and personal end result, so how about we show you 24 brilliant projects and see if there are any facets that you'd like to make a note of? Lets go!

1. A U-shaped layout, complete with wood cabinets and white counters looks spacious.

2. A wooden breakfast bar will double the practicality of any kitchen.

3. Monochrome styling works well in a narrow galley space.

4. Pale wood and suspended lighting maximise light flow and positive ambience.

5. A small L-shaped kitchen has been improved exponentially with a suspended shelving unit!

6. Using the space available, no matter how unusual, is key! Look at this amazing counter!

7. Small kitchens can use a dose of minimalism to great effect. This sink is amazing!

8. Negating top cupboards will open up a tiny room no end. There's no rule that says you HAVE to have them!

9. A tiny breakfast bar maintains good transitional space while still being practical and sociable.

10. Moveable furniture is a great way to embrace adaptive kitchen design. This island can be transported.

11. Use plants to add extra style, as they can help control moisture and odours.

12. Wood can be a cost-effective material to use, when your design budget is tight.

13. A corner kitchen is ideal for studio apartment homes! And a stylish addition to a communal space.

14. Modular kitchens are perfect for small areas, as you can add to them as and when you want.

15. Low-level L-shaped kitchens really make the most of natural light flow! White counters help too!

16. Wood and white always works well in a kitchen that you want to look a little brighter.

17. Keep any bold colours to the bottom of your kitchen, so the space feels airy.

18. A more open-plan design can work really well, so what about a large serving hatch?

19. Classic Shaker cabinets work perfectly in any size of kitchen, as it is such a pretty finish.

20. Adding brushed metal appliances will always create a contemporary look.

21. Plain cabinets don't have to be boring, as you can install a really pretty floor to add some extra pizazz.

22. Going open-plan is a great way to enjoy a larger kitchen, but installing a breakfast bar will divide functionalities simply.

23. Feature walls, finished in a bright colour, can really perk up an otherwise plain kitchen.

24. A double-depth counter makes for an easy breakfast bar transformation and will take up barely any extra space!
