Deep purples, colour blocking is a great technique for replicating the relaxed feel of freestanding furniture within the more practical, easy-to-clean reality of a fitted kitchen. In this colourful kitchen, Farrow & Ball’s rich Brinjal makes the fitted corner dresser appear like a separate piece – boosting its presence in the room. ‘Keeping the walls and ceiling pale will provide a blank canvas for the cabinetry and really lets the colours sing,’ adds Gillian McCollum, Director, Murray & Murray.
If you’re going for an entirely black-and-white scheme, make one shade dominant rather than giving each equal prominence. A predominantly white scheme has fresh appeal, but don’t overlook the elegance of a dark scheme with hints of white. Alternatively stick to accessories for a softer finish. Monochrome works with all tones of timber, as well as greys and pure shades, such as emerald green.
Other things to consider include leaving enough space next to the hob for setting down pans, allocating an area for serving up dishes, and making sure there is enough space in front of the oven for the door to open unhindered - a minimum of half a metre is a must.

This country kitchen has a range cooker set into the chimneybreast, framed with a tiled splashback and painted wood overmantel shelf.
