Creating a Themed Kitchen

Giving your kitchen a theme can be a great way to make it stand apart from the rest and in the process provide the room with a completely different feel from the rest of your home.

There are a number of different themes for kitchens you can choose from but here are a few to get your imagination going!

A coffee house design is a great look for a modern style kitchen that can transport you to one of the busy coffee shops on the streets of New York. A tall kitchen island or breakfast bar surrounded by high chairs is a great way to get this look.

These two features can serve as a place to enjoy that hot cup of coffee on a morning as well as being an area in which to prepare food or dine in.

Use bold colours on your walls such as deep reds to give a warm and relaxing look to the room that will give your kitchen the feel of Central Perk.

Moving to an alternative American theme, a US diner style is a great look that will certainly catch the eye. A must have for this theme to work is a check tiled floor. This style of flooring is an absolute classic whether you have a modern, retro or traditional kitchen and it’s the perfect foundation for a dinner theme.

Once again, brightly coloured walls will add to the effect, especially if combined with some contrasting neutral cabinets with retro chrome handles.

In a complete U-turn, you could also consider a traditional European country style kitchen. This could be an adaptation of a French rural home kitchen or an Italian Tuscan style room.

For a country style, the walls and kitchen units should be painted in warm reds, yellows and oranges to giving a welcoming feel to the room. This theme is all about practicality, so pots and pans hanging from the walls and close to hand will add to this look.

Having a central dining table should be the focal point of the room for your family and friends to sit and enjoy a meal whilst discussing your fantastic themed kitchen.
