When it comes to kitchen design and styling, our top tip is to keep things fresh and modern, but also functional. We specialise in custom kitchen cabinets, backsplashes and much more. No matter what look you’re going for, we can help you find just what you need to get the job done. If you’re just getting started and aren’t sure what you want, these kitchen styling tips can help. 

Pendant Lighting

Pendant lighting is perfect for your kitchen because it creates a mood for your space but doesn’t take up a lot of space that you need for other purposes. You can find this statement lighting in many styles, colours, shapes and designs so you’re sure to find one that melds with your kitchen’s look and feel. 

Add An Island with Stools

If your kitchen can spare the space, an island with kitchen stools makes a big design impact! The trick is to choose materials that mesh with your kitchen style and blend with the rest of the home. 

With a wide range of woods, paint colours and seating options, you should be able to find the perfect look for your space, whether you choose burlap seats and a white island for a farmhouse feel or black and stainless steel for a sleek, modern look.

Keep it Practical

You want your kitchen to look good while also being practical and functional. That means having cabinets or shelves that accommodate your dishes. Open shelving is trending right now and is a great way to show off your sets of dishes. Not to mention, simple to add doors later on if you decide to.

If you prefer closed shelving, white and grey kitchens are trending, as are those in bright colours like pink and turquoise. On counters, keep frequently used cooking utensils and much-used spices and oils close at hand so that they’re available when you cook. Organise drawers and cabinets based on your layout and usage so your kitchen is practical but looks good too. 


Decor is not something you want to ignore when it comes to kitchen design! Choose wall art and other decors that match the look and feel of your space. 
For example, if you want a farmhouse look, consider decorating with wooden cutting boards or small white animal statues. Or, if you prefer, modern art for an industrial feel. Mix and match your favourites to create a unique look!
