If you are ready to design the kitchen of your dreams, Mitre 10 is ready for you, with the new Do It Yourself & Ask For Some Help series.

In the second instalment, we’ll focus on the importance of style, using Mitre 10’s diverse range of designs and palettes to inspire your kitchen aesthetic and guide you in the decision making process.

To get you started, picking and sticking to a distinct style at the start — whether it be modern, beachy, country or clean — will make the rest of the design process seamless.

First, it is important to consider the colour palette you desire, which contributes to the overall tone of your kitchen space and complements the rest of your house.

If white doors and drawers suit your style, consider the white matt premium melamine shade Metro, with the fresh colour and straight-line design working perfectly in any kitchen to create a clean, timeless and sleek aesthetic.

For a darker, earthy tone, consider one of the wood shades such as the wood-grain matt premium melamine shade Alfresco, with the contemporary colour scheme and bold accents creating an indulgent vibe similar to that of a designer apartment.

Another wood shade to consider is the wood-grain gloss UV lacquer Japanese Pear, featuring a luxurious 3-D edge and high-quality gloss finish, offering a modern glass effect and deceptively real glazed appearance.

For a sleek, steely appearance, consider a grey shade such as the dark grey gloss UV lacquer Sorrento.

With an effortlessly eye-catching finish, the shade is perfect for a modern kitchen and creates an immediate impact in the space.

A handy tip for choosing your colour palette is first to consider whether the natural lighting of your kitchen is dark or well-lit.

Choosing colours based around this can have a huge impact on the overall appearance of the space.

Another important consideration is whether you prefer a low or a high floor-to-ceiling kitchen, with each having a big impact on the practicality and storage capabilities, as well the overall feel of your space.

The final question to ask yourself is whether you’re a master chef in need of a kitchen with all the bells and whistles, or whether you have basic requirements and can get away with a “less is more” approach to your style.

Let your creativity flow and and be sure to keep an eye out for our next DIY & AFSH instalment to gain more tips and tricks for your new kitchen.
