Kitchen Themes to Inspire Your Style

Well-designed kitchens can take any shape, style or theme. It’s not uncommon for clients to bring a picture of something that inspires them as a reference for the theme of their kitchen. A colour palette, a piece of art, an appliance, location, etc., are all things that can help to create your dream designer kitchen. In some cases, two or more of these styles might be brought together to create a new style, for example; modern and traditional, modern and industrial, traditional and beach.
Some common themes that can be worked into almost any home at any level of effectiveness include:

Cottage or Traditional Style
Typically characterised by profile doors and panels, decorative corbels, capping and skirting, ornamental handles and stone or timber bench tops.

Retro
A retro style kitchen is where traditional meets bold. This could be inspired by a 50s diner or the warm yellows of the 70s.

Beach
Typically characterised by white and timber with highlights of blues and greens to bring in those beach colours. A good ocean view out the window is always a help too!
