How To Create Your Dream Summer Kitchen?

When you’re trying to design your dream summer kitchen, it can be hard to know where to start. Do you want a light, open, beachy kitchen? Or a rustic, English countryside kitchen perfect for hosting garden parties? We’ve got you covered. We’ve put together this quick guide to give you some ideas before you get started.

Getting inspired

It’s no secret that mood boarding is one of the best ways to bring your ideas – no matter how small or large – together. It’s a great place to get a feel for how everything will fit together, from the flooring to the paint colors to the furnishings.

You can do this by ripping out pages from your favorite magazine or by using samples you have ordered and organizing them in a collage format. If you are a bit more tech savvy, you can also copy and paste pictures from the web into your project. It’s a good idea to start with something you love, such as furniture or color, and work your way up from there.

Here, we’ve broken down the two most popular summer kitchen styles we’ve seen – a light, breezy, beach look and a more traditional, country summer look. The first thing you’ll need to do is get a floor plan. Where are the appliances and where is the cabinetry? This is a crucial step in getting your kitchen working order right.

Which cabinets to choose?

Next, it’s time to choose your cabinetry style. All of our ranges are easy to install in your summer kitchen. Whether you’re after the smooth finish of our Modern and Fusion range of cabinetry, or you’re looking for a more traditional look with our shaker and period English cabinetry, any style will do! With warm oak detailing and hand painted cabinetry, you’ll have the chance to add a splash of colour to your kitchen if you want! If you’re going for a more traditional countryside farmhouse look, then our Shaker cabinets will give you that quintessential English look.


When it comes to color, summertime is all about the open spaces and warm weather. Whether it’s a small or large room, color can make a huge impact on the overall mood of the space. Natural whites for most of the room, whether it’s for the walls, the tiling or the cabinetry, apply to both kitchen styles. However, it’s really the textures and materials that make the room come alive. Think seaside towns or light paneling with blue accents. You don’t have to go too dark for a moody kitchen, but bring in plenty of light elements to keep it light and fresh. 


When it comes to worktops, wide stave oak will mature beautifully over time, making a lasting impression on your kitchen. When it comes to full stave oak, it’s a great way to show off the beautiful grain and the natural colour variation that solid oak has to offer. Silestone worktops come in a wide range of colours and designs and are perfect for working family homes. It’s a 94% quartz worktop that’s incredibly hard and long-lasting due to its bonding and resins and adhesives which make it scratch resistant and high resistance to dents and stains.
