This modern, elegant kitchen blends seamlessly with the dining area and even the outdoor area. The blonde timber is carried throughout the space to create a sense of continuity while plants and herbs are included sparingly in the decor scheme to inject colour in the space. We especially love the look of the timber benchtop running up the wall to form a unique splashback! Image Source
Against a classic backdrop of light timber and pure white, the metallic features in this kitchen along with the geometric shapes featured in the tiled splashback really make a statement in this space! The use of colours and accessories add a unique twist to the classic Scandinavian kitchen style. Image Source
What’s not to love in this feature packed kitchen! Stylish timber cabinets, a country style cooker, marble tops and matching splashback, brass fittings and even a stone drainer; all elements work together to create a fantastic clash of Country and Scandinavian home design. Bold black framed overhead cabinets have tiled backs to further enhance the Country style theme, while flexible wall mounted lighting fixtures provide a functional source of light. Image Source
A fresh white kitchen creates the perfect backdrop for the warm timber top featured in this kitchen. The integrated timber seat at the window is just the perfect little nook for one! Build on this idea by re-creating the design using built in banquette seating for the whole family! Image Source
In contrast to the previous examples, this kitchen includes bolder elements: a darker, almost chocolate timber has been used as a benchtop with a blend of timber tones being used on the floor. The tiled splashback adds another layer of character in the space with a stunning vintage pattern creating a timeless look. Image Source
Reclaimed timber can be used as a feature open shelf, as seen in this example; and what a great way to store wine glasses! We love the classic brass fittings against the soft white marble – a traditional twist on the Scandinavian styled kitchen. Traditional subway tiles complete the look by providing a classic, elegant background. Image Source
Where do we start?! From the funky Smeg Retro fridge to the matching white kitchen mixer, this design has made great use of today’s trends! Marble hexagonal kitchen wall tiles certainly make a statement while a simple timber strip along the benchtop’s edge create much needed contrast in the design. A fresh, simple and elegant kitchen!
