Kitchen Inspiration – Part 1 – cabinets


I don’t know about you, but over these past weeks our kitchen has become an even greater focus of family life than before – home learning and home office from the kitchen table, more time to plan and cook meals and all of us eating together every day, card games, conversations, and yes arguments too.

This got us thinking about ‘what if’s’ –

What if we could put in a whole new kitchen? What if we could just change the doors of the cabinets? Or update fittings like handles and taps? A new floor or worktop or splashback?  Ideas to freshen up this hub of our home by doing something a bit more positive than just putting a padlock on the fridge……

So, we’ve decided to pull together a few pinterest boards over the next couple of weeks, looking at inspiration for everything from cabinet finishes to worktop options, handles to flooring ideas, worktops to taps – have a look and see what inspires you.

This week kitchen cabinets –

We’ve all seen the trends for dark and light greys in either gloss or matt finishes, traditional wood and stainless steel. There’s a place for all of these but how about a rethink – a rich navy or deep green instead of grey? Contemporary wood? And polished brass or copper rather than brushed stainless steel? Or even a pastel pink?

Go on – use your imagination and see which you would love in your kitchen.
