Cottage kitchen design is all about creating a cosy and homely space in your home. A cottage kitchen can help you get the most out of your bijou kitchen space, or you can recreate a cottage kitchen on a larger scale. Cottage kitchens are far from pretentious, full of soft colours and natural accents like hardwood floors and deep farmhouse sinks. Nice, warm lighting filtering in through patterned curtains should off-set the kitchen’s curves perfectly. Place some wicker herb baskets on your windowsill for some gorgeous, homely scents.

Contemporary kitchens are more playful and quirky than their sleek modern kitchen counterparts, incorporating fun pops of colour and angular shapes to break up the space.

Modern Kitchen

Modern kitchens are all about sleek simplicity. Not a frilly or fussy chintzy curtain in sight- just elegant and sleek horizontal lines. The modern kitchen is all about creating a neutral, geometric space where you can truly feel Zen and de-cluttered. A modern kitchen showcases simple hardware, letting the natural beauty of your kitchen materials speak for themselves.

Some key modern kitchen features to look out for are:

– glass cabinet doors

– accent lighting

– subtle industrial details like exposed brickwork or distressed metal.

Rustic Kitchen

A real rustic kitchen combines distressed surfaces with cute vintage touches. In a rustic kitchen you will find a log-burning stove side by side with an unusual retro toaster. Reclaimed wood and warm textures keep this kitchen down to earth and cosy, and quirky old-school touches make this kitchen a truly charming space.

Go all out with your rustic kitchen – Buy up some chunky antique furniture, mixing up the periods from Georgian to Edwardian. Let the worn furniture tell its own story, dressing the pieces up with wildflowers in vases and mix-and-match teacups.

Get the rustic kitchen look for less– Paint wood furniture in cool Georgian colours like duck egg blue or mint, and distress the paint’s surface away with some sandpaper for a rustic finish.

Bristol based surface designers Addicted to Patterns create beautiful hand printed wallpapers and textiles, the perfect accompaniment for any rustic kitchen.
