Go for a classic metroNo 4: MonochromeIf you’d prefer a cooler, crisper result, however, keep your tiles’ partner colour white.Grey works well as a neutral here, but whatever colour this splashback was – sunshine yellow, bright red or the blue in the previous kitchen – the white units and ceiling would ensure a minimal look. Perfect if you like your kitchen to feel airy, bright and functional.

Living without a kitchenDon’t forget that during the course of your project, there will be a period of time during which you’ll have to live without a working kitchen. How long for depends on the size of the project and personal circumstances, but typically this means having to make other arrangements for meals. This often results in eating out, going to friends’ houses or buying food on a day-to-day basis (rather than putting food in the fridge) and living on more expensive microwave ready-meals. Sometimes families will choose the cost of a hotel or deliberately arrange a holiday while works are progressing. A further cost can be that of looking after pets during disruption to normal routines. Many families will include the cost of kennels during their budgeting, ensuring they can keep pets safely out of the way of ongoing works, and also to stop them being frightened by loud noises.Browse photos of white kitchens

The kitchen area is now spacious and open, with plenty of clean-lined glossy units – perfect for busy family life. ‘Increasing the sense of light and space was one of the most important parts of this project,’ says Morgan. ‘Including these high-level windows above the kitchen units was one of the ways we achieved this and one of the most successful elements of the design.’For similar grey metro tiles, try Castlenau Tiles.

Give me a ‘U’ The basic layout of the cabinets and appliances dictates what kind of experience you’ll have working in a kitchen. It’s a matter of preference, and often depends on the layout you start with and how much time and money you’re willing to spend to change it. In the US, Canada, UK and Germany, U-shaped kitchens (like the one shown here) are the most popular, according to the survey. In the UK, designer Conrad Hendrick of LWK Kitchens says history plays a role in kitchen layouts. ‘Unless you are willing to remodel, then your home’s existing architecture will often dictate what your layout will be,’ he says. ‘And with Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture still imprinted on many modern homes, it follows that these styles naturally influence kitchen design, and in many modern cases lean towards a U-shaped kitchen layout.’Aside from the historical influence, Hendrick says people desire the U-shaped layout because it provides a generous work surface and storage capacity. ‘They are also highly efficient and simple to use, because of the limited number of steps required when moving between different areas of the kitchen,’ he says.
