Marble and granite give a classic finish to any kitchen and help create the clean lines of a modern-looking space. These luxurious surfaces work best with appliances that reflect the same strong, durable design.
White kitchens are a timeless trend which can be enhanced with contrasting colours and textures to add interest.
Attention to your lighting is essential; use pendant lights above the island bench to tie in the finishes you choose for any appliances on show.
Think large, conical domes or cylinders in polished stainless steel or glass.
