Sipping a cup of coffee together, a cosy breakfast with the kids, a stealthy snack when no one is watching... The kitchen is the beating heart of any home. That’s why it’s important to have your kitchen fit the overall style of your house. Do you prefer a rustic, modern or industrial kitchen? We’ve highlighted the main ingredients of each style for you.
Is that the smell of apple pie coming out of the kitchen? Or is that convivial smell simply part and parcel of a rustic kitchen? A rustic kitchen combines classic and contemporary elements into a functional and homely space. Rustic kitchens often use natural materials such as wood, stone and porcelain. In addition to black and white a lot of earth tones are used as well. Stainless steel is a popular option for the kitchen counter, where cast-iron flower pots are perfectly at home.

Well-organised, that’s the operative word for a modern kitchen. The typical generous surfaces and easy-to-clean worktops appeal in particular to families with children. Geometric and sleek lines contrast stylishly with statement pieces such as a slanted PVC hood or striking lamps made of glass or steel. Colourful bar stools or kitchen appliances add a playful touch to kitchens that are often black or white.

More and more people opt for an industrial kitchen. In addition to a cooking island in massive natural stone an industrial kitchen usually includes a freestanding cooker with oversized knobs. Rough brick walls and visible cables and pipes ensure an out-and-out rugged look. So what else typifies an industrial kitchen? Kitchen fronts in raw wood, a concrete sink and a host of plants for decoration purposes. Grey is the favourite colour, for the cupboards and worktops as well as the floor.
