I love a statement kitchen. They have to be functional, sure, but now more than ever they’re an opportunity to be creative. Forget the idea that kitchens should only be practical – in fact, they provide you with the perfect chance to show some personality. Materials are key, because they can be used in exuberant ways – think expansive slabs of veined marble, tiles in unexpected patterns and places, poured concrete and crafted wood. Across the 100 dedicated pages of this ultimate kitchen guide you’ll find all the inspiration you need to help you find your own style, from bright colours to palest white, riotous pattern to showstopping stones and everything in between.
