yes, i love that timeless style too, it sit very easily in most settings - and in years to come, if you want to change 'the look' you can just have it painted a different colour!

Hi, the cooker hood against the tiles look lovely. Can you please confirm whether these tiles are the smaller 150 X 75 size and the colour of the grouting. Thank you and Happy New Year!

The grout is dark grey, anthracite. I don't use black grout as I think its too high contrast. The tiles are standard imperial size.
Hope that's helpful.
Happy new year!

Flooring - We have fitted a very similar kitchen - cream with white metro tiles and solid oak worktops. We're struggling on deciding what shade of wood effect vinyl to fit. What colour is the flooring that was used here as it would be perfect. Thank you!

Hi Emma, i specified a 'white oiled' , engineered oak floor.

Mark at FloorSeasons has a very good selection of timber flooring. http://www.floorseasons.co.uk/catalogue/

Hope that's helpful!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jo Simmons added this to Houzz Tour: A Colourful and Light-flooded Victorian House in Sussex
Anna designed the kitchen and had it made by a joiner. She chose an extractor fan, sink and tap, all in white. ‘I try to keep those things that are not so attractive, such as the cooker hood, less prominent so they seem to melt into the wall,’ she explains. She chose dark grout between the tiles ‘for a more graphic look’.Extractor fan, Rangemaster. Tap, Ikea. Side chair by Bertoia, available at The Conran Shop.
Jo Simmons added this to Ask an Expert: Are We Seeing an End to Open-plan Living?
Factor in some escape spaceOpen-plan living often appeals to families, but Anna Standish points out it can be counterproductive to be completely open. ‘It can be amazing to all be together in one room,’ she says, ‘but it can also be too much. You want to be able to listen to the radio while your children watch TV elsewhere. It’s good to have different areas. Finding a room in which you can be quiet is increasingly appealing, especially as we all lead such busy lives.’
Lara Watson added this to 10 Ways to Prepare Your Home For Spring
Dig out your vasesFresh flowers are such a joy, and now’s a good time to bring them back into your home if you’ve taken a break for winter, especially if you’ve substituted them with dried or silk flowers during the colder months. Give your vases a thorough wash to make them sparkle again, and replace ones that look tired.Remember that cut flowers keep better in water that’s changed daily, and popping in a drop of bleach is a good tip to maintain freshness and keep bugs at bay. Also, when you’re arranging flowers in your spring vases, strip the lower stems of leaves and debris, as these can soon turn into a slimy mess.
Laura Gaskill added this to Make Cleaning Your New Home a Breeze With This Easy Routine
Know your cleaning style Do you prefer to take on the entire house in one marathon session or break it up into bite-size chunks? After much trial and error, I’ve discovered that what works best for my family is a combination: small tasks that get done each day, paired with one not-too-long weekend session where everyone pitches in.Find the timeTake a look at your calendar to get a realistic idea of when you have the time to clean, and decide on a regular day and time each week – it’s easier to keep up with a cleaning routine if it’s just that: routine. If you’re finding it difficult to fit in cleaning, consider setting a timer during your sessions and challenge yourself to do the job within the time you have. If you’re trying to get children involved with the chores, try setting a stopwatch – it’s easier to get kids motivated when it’s a ‘race’!Get the order right Always start high and end low so that dust and grime that drift down when you’re tackling higher-up areas don’t dirty freshly cleaned floors. And if you’re pressed for time, focus on the rooms with the most need for frequent cleaning: the kitchen and bathroom.

This is about grout colour. A light grout is seamless but hard to keep clean. A light grey is popular
