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!

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