Kitchens are social spaces.
The room in the home where the family comes together to prepare food, hang out and enjoy each others company. Because kitchens are such social spaces its important to create a space that you really love and that makes you feel comfortable to enjoy the company of your family and friends. So we've come up with our top three kitchen looks to inspire you with.
Kitchen Island Style No.1. - Industrial Elegance
Industrial Elegance - Get The Look
Embrace industrial grit in your home interiors.
Industrial interiors is a celebration of raw, natural and paired back interior design. Think exposed brick walls, concrete floors, leather bar stools, tin ceiling tiles and metal touches.
For an industrial style kitchen, we think that metal tin tiles are a great foundation for the room. Whether you create a tin tile kitchen island, tin tile splashback or tin tile ceiling the industrial tiles will create a mirror effect in the room meaning that the room will feel brighter and lighter. This is particularly important for small spaces. Alternatively, you could even use metal spray paint and spray paint your tin tiles any colour you choose. Check out our range of Tin Tiles in our flooring and tiles department, the Filigree Tin Tile, Floral Tin Tile and the Tudor Rose & Chaplet Tin Tile are all particularly striking.
Enhance the industrial look with leather back chairs, metal bar stools and wooden top bar chairs and light up your industrial kitchen with wall lights such as our perfect wall light or fabulous wall light in black. Then to really create drama in your industrial kitchen opt for a statement chandelier such as the Ornate Chandelier to create incredible showstopping wow-factor.
Kitchen Island Idea No.2. - Dark Eclecticism
Dark Eclectic Kitchen - Get The Look
Dare to be different with dark floral drama in your kitchen interiors.
Creating a drama-filled space is all down to the details, so get creative with your wall colour and wallpaper choices. Here we love the interesting juxtaposition between the dark and moody wall paint and the punchy florals. We think that our Zeitgeist Dark Wall Paint and Flower Power Wallpaper would be a particularly great choice if you want to create a similar look to as above.
But don't just stop at the wallpaper. Create layer upon layer of wow-factor with statement ceiling lights, bold artwork and striking bar stools. Our particular favourites for this look would be velvet bar chairs and velvet bar stools such as our Petrol Blue Atlantis Bar Stool, Golden Ochre Bar Chair and Emerald Green Bar Chair. Then inject golden accents into your kitchen with a metal golden pendant light or bar stool such as our Hampstead Bar Stool or Midas Bar Stool. Statement typography artwork will complete the look.
Kitchen Island Idea No.3 - Modern Sophistication
Pink Kitchen - Get The Look
Millennial pink hit the interior scene big time in 2017 and it's as popular today as it was then.
Great for adding a touch of playfulness, yet calm in your home why not be a little adventurous and paint your kitchen island pink?! Our Bohemia Pink Wall Paint would look great in your kitchen or opt for our Broderie Pink Wall Paint for an earthy clay pink tone.
Once you've decided on your pink foundations, opt for luxe accessories and additions to add a touch of sophisticated style to your kitchen. Think brass furniture and bar stools such as our Midas Chair or our super soft velvet bar stools with gold legs; the Atlantis Bar Stool. For lighting, we would recommend hanging three statement pendant lights over your kitchen island which will not only look super striking but will also illuminate your worktop. Opt for the globe ceiling light or the recycled glass ceiling light which will create a warm glow with plenty of light to work by in your kitchen.
Then have fun and accessorise with gold kitchen accessories and marble touches such as our Set Of 4 Handmade Brass Polished Bowls, Small Marble Effect Bread Board, Set Of 3 Gold Metal Sieves and white marble kitchen shelf.
