ARTICLES & INSIGHTS

Here are our tips for creating a luxury statement kitchen that will turn heads and have everyone asking about your design secrets.

Where to start with when designing a statement kitchen

A statement kitchen is one with a show-stopping element. For example, you might use marble for your modern kitchen island or opt for brass doors or veneer finish that truly pops. But it’s not only about the materials you choose—it’s also crucial to think about where your statement will be located. Consider how the architecture of your space can impact design choices; white marble, for instance, might work best in galley kitchens where there isn’t much room to step back and take in all the details at once. The key is to start by creating a focal point and then building from there!

Here are a few of our favourite kitchen design ideas that make a statement

Add mirrors to your kitchen island

Although mirrors are commonly used to make a room appear larger, they aren’t often seen in kitchens. However, since kitchen islands are versatile and can be used for various purposes, mirrors could potentially become the newest trend.

A kitchen centre point

When adding appliances to your kitchen island, be mindful of how this will affect the overall functionality of the space.

Integrate your cupboards carefully

Add shelving to the end or side of your kitchen island for more usable countertop space. Keep pots, pans, and extra plates out of sight but within reach.

Feature walls using tiles

People usually think that tile walls are only used for backsplashes, but you can have them anywhere in your kitchen. For example, they could be placed above a microwave or on an island.

Floating kitchen cabinets

Most kitchens have upper cabinets that touch the ceiling or come very close to it. This is because ceilings are often too low to allow anything else. If you’re tight on space, floating cabinets are a great option. They make the most of your available space and they’re economical.

Floating shelves with lights

While floating cabinets might make a room look bigger, there are no guarantees. You can install floating shelves with lights in most kitchens to avoid clutter and free up space.

Appliances with an industrial touch

Not everyone loves the industrial look, but this kitchen shows why it is popular. The clean lines and convenient appliances make it a great option for many people.

Be bold with a stone island

A kitchen island has more benefits than one might realise – in addition to acting as a breakfast bar, worktop extender and storage concealer, they can also be used to show off a striking material in one large slab.

Design a green kitchen island

We’re big fans of green kitchen islands because they bring the outdoors in and add a natural look. This is a smart way to go if you want to add character to your space.

Go bright with your colours

We can’t stop talking about how perfect a neutral kitchen looks with a touch of bright colour. If you use one colour, we recommend yellow. Considered the brightest colour, yellow makes for a wonderful example.

If you love bright colours, make one your primary colour. You can even paint your floors for a bold statement.

Accentuate edges and sharp lines

Keep your kitchen looking modern by choosing sleek lines over everything. Limit the hardware you use and don’t worry about handles if possible.

Combine neutral tones

While some people believe that sticking to one colour is the norm, you don’t have to follow suit. If you want your space to be exciting but aren’t a fan of bright colours, consider mixing different shades of neutral tones.

Classic, contemporary appliances

If you’re looking for an affordable, vintage-looking oven, you’re in luck. There are plenty of options on the market that will give your kitchen a timeless look without breaking the bank.

Think about using two colour tones

To create a two-toned kitchen that looks deliberate and not random, start with a two-toned piece as your foundation. This can be natural or painted.

One of the most important aspects of creating a luxury kitchen is incorporating your personality into the design. At London Kitchen designer, we always try to do this by using colour to reflect who you are and incorporate other aspects of your home. By staying true to your personality, you can create your dream space using the latest kitchen designs every time. You can also call us Mon to Sat from 9am to 5pm, tel: 0208 504 8850.
