A black counter will create a bold look, whilst offering a surface that shows up fewer scratches and stains – great for keeping the space looking its best. Add grey timber floors, which will create a contemporary, monotone look, whilst adding interest with natural texture. Ask a builder to install culinary devices side-by-side to create a stylish cooking zone. Installing them in towers will also mean that they are eye-level, making it easier to rotate heavy dishes during cooking. Fit lights under base cupboards to make the space feel brighter and more inviting. Complete the design with slim, matt black handles that match the counter for a cohesive look.
