Five cool kitchen design ideas you may not have thought of

Five cool kitchen design ideas you may not have thought of

I’ve been thinking a lot about my dream kitchen recently (I blogged previously about my plans for some small updates to my home), and while a full refresh is still a pipe dream at the moment, there’s no harm in doing a little research is there?! I’ve stumbled across so many inspirational kitchens, and thought I’d share some cool design ideas I hadn’t previously thought of - which can all add a bit of character and uniqueness to your kitchen. 


1. Glass splash back
To splash back or not to splash back is probably one of the biggest decisions to make when choosing a new kitchen. There’s so many options, however what about glass? With so many design options, such as a tiled or textured affect, this alternative to tiles can give the room a fresh, modern feel. Not only that, but its super easy to keep clean too. Royston Glass offer a huge range of options to choose from, in a number of different affects, and in a huge range of colours (the full Farrow & Ball range is available - you can't go wrong there, can you?!)

2. Mirrored splash back
What about a mirrored splash back? Perfect for adding depth and creating the illusion of space within small kitchens. This would also be great for a kitchen that struggles with light, as the mirrored wall would bounce light all around the room.

3. Coloured units
Wanting to add a pop of colour to your kitchen? Why not be bold and go for brightly coloured units? Who’d of thought pink cupboards would look so cool?! Make sure to keep the rest of the interiors neutral to avoid it looking too busy.

4. Units in different colours 
Something I’ve spotted in so many beautiful kitchens recently is having the kitchen units in contrasting colours - usually one colour for the cupboards on the wall and another for those on the floor/the island. How stunning is this room?! Perfect for creating a country kitchen feel.

5. Brass sink
I can honestly say I’ve never thought to have a sink in anything other than ceramic or metal - but how amazing does this brass sink look?! Really eye-catching, and a genius way to add some on-trend copper to your interiors.
