For example, a wallpaper with a white background may look more like cream next to a white table, so try to keep them apart, using black accessories as punctuation. A monochrome scheme can be bold and will usually benefit from some texture and a mix of surface finishes. Gloss and matt, opaque and dense - build up layers to add extra interest and soften any harshness.

Make a list of all your kitchen equipment – pots, pans, crockery, cutlery, appliances, linen, cleaning products – as well as anything else you may need to store in your kitchen, from food and drink to the ironing board and vacuum cleaner. Once you have your list, you can design storage solutions around it.

Don’t overdo it – a standout island unit will suffice. Pinks are from the warm side of the colour spectrum, so you can afford to introduce plenty of creamy background shades that will keep the décor on the sophisticated side of ‘girly’, and the overall look fresh.

As with the L-shaped kitchen, the island unit can form a divide between the working kitchen space and the dining area or living area. If space allows, the non-work side of a kitchen island is a great place to include bar stool seating or open shelves to store cookery books.

Choose pieces such as a painted cream sideboard for storage, a dresser where you can display favourite china and glassware, and a large farmhouse table surrounded by spindle chairs for family meals. Fit shelves instead of wall cupboards for kilner jars, cookware and serving dishes - touches of copper, pink and stone bring this country kitchen scheme to life.

A combined washer-dryer will save space and can be tucked away behind kitchen unit doors when not in use. In an open-plan kitchen, you will also need a separate dining and/or living area, placed as far away from the work zone as possible so as not to disturb anyone eating or relaxing in those areas. A breakfast bar is a smart way to squeeze in informal seating in a small kitchen.

Choose accessories for their strong outlines, especially when it comes to large pieces, furniture and lighting that dominates the ceiling space. Far-from-boring black and white kitchen, monochrome doesn’t have to be serious, we love this fun kitchen-diner area that’s been zoned-out with black-and-white pictures and wall art.

A cream painted kitchen is the perfect choice for a cottage with low ceilings, as it makes the space feel light and open. Create this look with Shaker-style base cabinets, cream wall tiles and pale flagstone flooring. If you have space, an Aga will suit a country kitchen perfectly. As an alternative to wall cupboards, install a kitchen island in centre of the room to provide plenty of storage.

Deep purples, colour blocking is a great technique for replicating the relaxed feel of freestanding furniture within the more practical, easy-to-clean reality of a fitted kitchen. In this colourful kitchen, Farrow & Ball’s rich Brinjal makes the fitted corner dresser appear like a separate piece – boosting its presence in the room. ‘Keeping the walls and ceiling pale will provide a blank canvas for the cabinetry and really lets the colours sing,’ adds Gillian McCollum, Director, Murray & Murray.
