Glass splashback (Credit: Shania Shegedyn)

Borrow from the outdoors to bring light and your surrounding garden into your kitchen space like this pool fence glass that doubles as a splashback. White cabinetry and tiles combine with light timber laminate, Caesarstone benchtops and simple handles to keep the look streamlined and let nature do the talking.

Combine your kitchen and dining spaces in an open layout to make the most of both spaces. Statement pendant lighting demarcates the dining zone and dining chairs beneath anchor them to the space with similar shapes and finishes.

Love an industrial edge to your interiors? Stainless steel looks the part and is easy to maintain and work with. Pots go straight from the oven to your benchtop and wrap-around splashbacks are simple to wipe down once the creative cook takes flight.

Don’t be afraid to make a statement with a feature wallpaper to add a decorative flourish. ‘Wabi Cloud’ wallpaper in Gold by Calico adds drama to the kitchen, which also includes a splashback in ‘Rubix’ white tiles with charcoal grout (for similar try Designer Tile Company).
