Decorating your kitchen and dining areas

Kitchen and dining areas have always been the heart of the home and should reflect the way that you live.

We’ve worked in lots of different spaces – open plan or separate, breakfast bar or kitchen island, grand dining table or just sitting down in front of the telly. We can help you find ways to make the most of your space and layout with clever use of décor to ‘zone’ areas.

Open-plan kitchens remain popular as they suit today’s lifestyle. Whether you have all the mod cons or a vintage Aga, our expertise will help you to make the most of where you gather to eat, drink and live.

In our experience, it’s often a good idea to use a neutral palette and then add little pops of colour. This can work particularly well for modern kitchens which feature lots of monochrome or stainless steel.

“Kitchens should be designed around what’s truly important – fun, food, and life.”

Daniel Boulud

Pick your perfect paint

Choosing the right paint for your kitchen doesn’t have to be a chore. Dulux, Little Greene Paint Company and Farrow & Ball all do a range of products at great prices that are grease resistant, washable and even scrubbable. This is especially important when little fingers or four legged friends are around. You can find out more about the paints we prefer to use here.


Dine in style

Separate dining rooms may not be as popular nowadays but it’s a great opportunity to build on the occasion. As a result, you can afford to be braver about colours and shades on the walls and floors. Why not mix and match wallpaper and paint for a textured look?

For dining rooms, it’s often about accessories so you can enjoy setting the scene, then picking out accent colours and fabrics.

Feature walls make a style statement and can work really well in areas where you eat and drink.
