Create symmetry by choosing timber work surfaces and floorboards, which will introduce organic texture for an on-trend look. Opt for pale tones for both surfaces to introduce a Nordic influence for a relaxed and casual atmosphere. Stack cooking devices in a tower to save on floor space in smaller layouts and create a contemporary, culinary zone. Position these at eye level to make lifting and rotating heavy roasting trays simple and hassle-free. Add brass handgrips for a luxe finishing touch. Then include lights under wall cupboards to ensure the room is always well illuminated and welcoming – great for when guests come over.
