My ideal kitchen mixes the aesthetic with the practical. For me the layout of the kitchen is crucial so that you love using it every day. I like to keep things simple and use natural stones like marble, travertine and quartz and mix this with simple tiling on the splash back and surrounding wall areas. My drawers are large and very simple providing ample storage and are easy to use, I often use soft touch drawers. I have picked out some of my favourite kitchens from Europe, for inspiration, mixed with some jobs I have advised on.
