A kitchen is not just the most high-tech area in a home, but it doesn’t have to be just a practical workspace either. It should be a room that is primarily a welcoming place, so that sharing a good meal becomes a joy for the senses.
This is why choosing the right décor is vitally important, since the interior design will be the backdrop for so many cherished memories of the people living there.

If you want to try designing a kitchen with an informal yet welcoming look, why not take your inspiration from one or more furnishing styles or trends. A 1950's vintage mood is one of these. Lines with timeless and unique appeal, built around a lively palette of pastel colours with a splash of bright and shiny painted surfaces. For your kitchen, you can choose a table and chairs fixed to the floor, go for bold colours, have pop artwork on the walls or curtains, fit open shelves and feature splashes of colour. Ball-shaped ceiling lights will plunge you into a true American style and what about catching on to the unforgettable sounds of the fifties with a jukebox.

A Scandinavian look is a more discreet yet comfortable style that uses white to emphasise the feeling of space, creating a kitchen that is awash with light. The wall and floor units are either white or a very pale colour, dressers furnish every corner of the room, the worktops are wood whereas the other furniture - like the table and chairs - are made of materials like glass, metal or Plexiglas.
Black, on the other hand, is the ideal choice for little details like the door knobs and unit handles because it will not compromise the feeling of space if it is used properly and will give the room a touch of elegance and sophistication.

And finally, the minimalist look is the best option for smaller kitchens. Its unfussy mood and severe, clean lines give the room a safe and peaceful feeling. A minimalist kitchen is stripped of any superficial and decorative element, making it practical and functional. Mirage took its inspiration from this style for its contemporary wall and floor coverings that are an ideal solution for any elegant kitchen.
