 Designing your dream kitchen and dining room can be exciting, but also a stressful process! The kitchen is one of the most frequently used areas of the home, and the dining room where you are most likely to entertain guests, so getting these rooms right is paramount. 

With this in mind, we thought we’d put together a list that can help you decide what type of kitchen/dining room will be right for you. Let's take a look!

1. Mix up the styles. This stunning kitchen/dining room is predominantly modern, but with a little rustic charm and dashes of bright colour.

2. Keep it simple—less is more. Take a minimalist approach to your dining room, like this stunning salon by Design Spirits.

3. Go for that rustic charm. Exposed brick walls and wooden surfaces create a stylish, yet homely atmosphere.

4. Go Scandinavian. Simple, elegant, homely—what more wood you want?

5. Open plan—it works with almost any style, and gives the home a much more spacious and fluid feel.

10. Be individual, and don't be afraid to decorate in an original way.

11. Conceal those cupboards. Concealed cupboards can help you achieve a minimalist look, help you achieved a unified vision for your kitchen by hiding elements that clash, and generally make the kitchen look a lot tidier.
