From the sleek and contemporary to the charming and traditional, when it comes to redesigning your Surrey kitchen, there are countless styles and options to choose from. As the heart of your home, your new design should capture your personality in order to create a space that you will enjoy for many years to come. However, as you begin your kitchen journey you will realise that redesigning your interior isn’t simply a case of choosing doors and worktops, many different elements will contribute to the look and feel of your design.

At Oakwood Bespoke, our designers will work closely with you to develop your design and bring your vision to life. Nevertheless, to give you some inspiration for your project and to help you understand some of the intricacies involved in creating your ideal kitchen, we’ve put together this blog exploring the crucial features that go into creating a successful bespoke design.    


Bright and Characterful Farnham Kitchen

Traditional shaker-style kitchens are very popular with our Farnham clients, their fantastic versatility and subtle detailing make them ideal for creating a characterful and inviting interior. The white and lilac colour scheme below brings a fresh and vibrant feel to the space. However, the soft grey undertones of the purple hue retain a sense of classic understated charm. When opting for a bold colour choice, restricting the colour to part of your design, particularly below the eye line, will reflect your individual personality without overwhelming the space.

Materials play a crucial role in setting the tone for this kitchen. A flagstone floor, rustic oak bar stools and natural marble worktops add to the homely and inviting atmosphere. The carefully selected finishing touches also help to accentuate the uniquely personal feel of the space. Country kitchen style plate racks, open shelving and a countertop pantry cupboard meet trendy metro tiles and modern under cabinet lighting to create the perfect balance. Combining classic and contemporary elements, this bright kitchen is perfect for any Farnham home.

Stylish and Inviting Modern Farnborough Kitchen

Modern handleless kitchen styles have become much more popular in recent years and this has had a fantastic impact on the variety of colourways and surface finishes available. Handleless kitchens aren’t just for those looking to create an ultra-modern cutting-edge interior, they can also create a wonderfully elegant and inviting atmosphere. If you’d like to bring a more minimal edge to your Farnborough kitchen, but you don’t want your space to become too cold, then consider pairing a stylish textured cabinet finish with a warm and elegant personal colour choice.

In the kitchen below a chevron-patterned wood floor emulates a classic herringbone design to bring a homely yet luxurious edge to the interior. The pattern is cleverly referenced in the tile splashback to create a cohesive look. Natural textures, warm colours and soft lighting are ideal for toning down a contemporary handleless Farnborough kitchen.

Striking Handleless Shaker Kitchen Woking 

The latest innovation in contemporary kitchen design is the handleless shaker kitchen. Combining classic framed detailing with sleek uninterrupted looks, the handleless shaker represents the best of both worlds, making for a highly flexible choice. If you dream of bringing your Woking kitchen right up to date with the latest trends then you can’t get more modern and stylish than a monochrome colour palette, a clean and distinctive gloss finish and a cutting-edge handless shaker design.

A timeless monochrome interior will always retain an effortless sense of style and sophistication. If you love the look and feel of a clean and fresh space, then a gloss finish makes a fantastic choice. In the kitchen below, striking gold bar stools and pendant lights add the final contemporary flourish. While this statement design might be perfect for your Woking kitchen, the shaker detailing of this furniture also works perfectly with a more classic understated brief.

Modern and Understated Wokingham Kitchen

Flat-panel kitchen designs are a perfect halfway house between the pure minimalism of a handleless kitchen and the classic detailing of a shaker-style door. They are ideal for creating a simple, refined interior that’s clean and modern but a bit more understated in style.

A cream tone makes for a warm and welcoming yet bright backdrop that pairs effortlessly with a range of accessories. A stainless steel ducted cooker hood, industrial style bar stools and exposed bulb pendant lights give this kitchen a stylish on-trend feel whilst adding a quirky and inviting vibe. To bring a subtly stylish edge to your Wokingham kitchen, opt for neat neutral cabinetry and let the finishing touches do the talking.

This graceful grey shade will simply never go out of fashion. Neutral greiges and more contemporary navy blues are also a beautiful choice when it comes to creating a gorgeously sophisticated space. From the mantle shelf to the plate rack and from the flagstone floor to the clean white worktops, every detail of this kitchen works in seamless harmony to create a luxurious stylish and welcoming traditional interior perfect for any Ascot home.
