The kitchen is the heart of the home and where the magic happens, so it’s only fair that we’re regularly looking for kitchen decorating ideas and kitchen design inspiration.
We’re going to be honest here and admit that we’ve got major kitchen envy right now… Is it too much to ask to have several homes so that we can accommodate each one of these styles? Really? Oh well, until we win the lottery, we’ll settle for oohing and aahing over these incredibly beautiful kitchens…
1. Monochrome magic
Black and white always looks incredibly chic and will never date, so it’s a great trend to follow if you want to be on the beautiful kitchens list one day! Throw in a few pops of colour to give it a modern update, and paint a chalkboard on one of the walls; the kids will love it!
2. Contemporary delight
Talk about making a statement! This look is uber modern, but still in a way that is pretty timeless. The black walls are ultra-chic, and the wooden cupboards soften the look up, making it somewhat more accessible. We approve!
3. Country dream
This popular look has us lusting after the good old life on the farm. With neutral tones, natural materials and an ‘anything goes’ approach, this is one of those beautiful kitchens that you’ll want to spend your entire day in… all the better for baking those home-made treats!
4. Bold, bright and beautiful
It’s important to not always take yourself too seriously, and this kitchen reminds us that sometimes more is more when it comes to colour. Have fun, be bold and make your crockery become part of your decor; it’s perfect for a relaxed, homely kitchen design like this one.
5. Light and airy
As far as kitchen ideas go, we are absolutely obsessed with this one! The magical skylights and numerous windows bring the outdoors inside effortlessly, and the minimal decor and white palette allows the outside to be all the decor you could need.
6. Retro cool
Few things are more cool than vintage styles these days, and the retro diner throwback is evidence of that. Primary colours, check prints and vintage decor items finish this look off perfectly.
7. Glam to the max
When it comes to beautiful kitchens, it’s easy to love one that’s all glammed up! Gold embellishments, statement lighting, fabulous seating and slick finishings make this one hard to beat.
8. Radiantly rustic
We love any look that allows us to do some home DIY and upcycling, and rustic kitchen designs allow just that. Teamed with items from around the house and some gorgeous pendant lights, and we’d sit at that table all day long.
9. By the seaside
Whether you live near the sea, have a beach house or just want to feel like you do, you can never go wrong with a beautiful kitchen that looks like it belongs on the coast. The calming colours and fun accessories make you feel like every day is a holiday.
10. Industrial chic
The warehouse look isn’t going anywhere — and we’re more than okay with that! Exposed brick walls, concrete and industrial appliances never looked better, especially when you throw in some fabulous splashes of colour! Practical and pretty — those are the kind of kitchen ideas we love.
11. Mix it up
We admit that it takes a brave person to pull this look off, but we absolutely love it. It takes the best elements from all of our favourite beautiful kitchens and meshes them together in a way that clashes to perfection. Top it off with a bit of animal print, and you’ve got a winning combination.
12. Kitchen perfection!
White and light, statement lights, splashes of colour and a few retro finishings mean this kitchen tops our beautiful kitchens list. It’s beautiful, unique and oh-so dreamy, and we’re pretty sure that not one average meal would come out of here.
