Kitchen Design Inspiration

I see it with my clients all the time, we change up one area or aspect of their space which then inspires a whole cascade of design and decor changes. It might be something simple. For example, they might have just read something like these oster duraceramic air fryer reviews and have decided that they want to improve their kitchen so that they can cook more in it and make the most of it. Whilst others might just love the idea of a new colour scheme meaning that we have to change everything; I’m not going to lie – I love it! I love it that is, when it’s my client’s space, when the same thing starts to happen in my own space during the busiest time of year, I start to wish I hadn’t begun!

Earlier this summer I had my place painted, which has now inspired a kitchen update. I’ve just had a kitchen design consultation and I’ve got a few ideas in mind now. Nothing major, just surfaces – counter-tops, back-splash, painting out the cabinetry and depending on budget, switching out the appliances. Nothing major 😉 I’m so excited to finally be renovating my house, not a client’s! It certainly makes a change. One client decided they wanted a new kettle to bring some new life into their kitchen. I looked into glass kettle reviews and found something that was perfect for the clients needs. Maybe even a change of ceramics? If you’re interested you could get some inspiration from Atlas, Atlas ceramics impressive range so I hear.

Since this is a more substantial update than the painting, I’ve allowed myself to take my time with it. But that hasn’t dampened my incessant collection of kitchen design inspirations. So I thought I would share them here, in case anyone else is looking to update or renovate their kitchen.

The theme for me without question is white, bright, marble and brass!

I just love the shiplap range hood. It adds a beautiful rustic element in a very modern space and pairs perfectly with the cobalt blue barn door. Perhaps for my next client project!

While my heart yearns for brass fixtures, I must say there is something spectacular about matt black fixtures.

Since my kitchen doesn’t get any natural light (typical condo kitchen), I’m leaning towards white cabinetry, but there is something so charming about gray or dark lowers and light uppers. Decisions, decisions …

While there are tonne of fun options for back splashes, you can see some of them here, not surprisingly I’m leaning towards a white subway tile, simple and classic. Although these white moroccan tiles are amazing and a marble herringbone wouldn’t be so bad 😉
