What would your ideal kitchen look like? Our house is far from perfect and there are lots of things to update, paint, repair and replace. I’ve developed a little love for Pinterest and as there are so many beautiful images on there I sometimes daydream about my ideal house. There are no plans to decorate in the near future, there is no time or money at the moment but if I could wave a magic wand here’s what I’d choose for a kitchen:
LayoutI’m a big fan of storage so lots of cabinets are ideal. Our current kitchen has quite a few but we could do with some extra shelves and simple storage solutions.
Bigger kitchens aren’t necessarily better but I do think a bit of space helps! This will depend on family size or just preference (if you’re rich!). My cousin has four kids so she needs a table for six and bigger kitchen appliances like these Panasonic America fridge freezers with all those mouths to feed.
Our kitchen is big enough to have a table in and I find it’s really beneficial to eat in the same place as cooking. I love that our kitchen is big enough (just) to fit a table in. It could do with a bit of paint though and probably some new chairs. Here’s one I like the look of from John Lewis.

I am usually drawn to white or cream kitchens. Saying that though I love bright colours. I once rented out a flat that an interior designer owned. She had painted each room a different colour. The kitchen had yellow walls and pale turquoise cabinets. I loved that little Kitchen. Maybe a combination of white or cream with pale turquoise would work? Our table tops could definitely do with a make over too!
Natural light is crucial especially in a kitchen so window size is important to me. Our current kitchen doesn’t let that much light in but I’m sure adding some strategic lighting and paining our cabinets a brighter colour would make a huge difference.
I’m pretty pleased with our current flooring - terracotta stone so that can stay put :)
I absolutely love ceramic tiles and think they can add so much to a room. The ones above are Indian tiles but I also love Portuguese, Moroccan and Turkish tiles. And I suppose if I really could choose my kitchen would have a balcony overlooking the swimming pool in the garden! Haha, a girl can dream… :)
