Kitchens: their successful design is an imperative part of a working interior. It really can be the small, simple details – tailored to the way that you cook and use the space – that make it a joy to use. Whether it’s having jars of ingredients on open shelving like Balthazar restaurateur Keith Mcnally, or something clean, white and minimal like the one chosen by John Gordon of Intelligence Squared. From ergonomic islands to modular cabinets and hidden storage, in this gallery you’ll find hundreds of images from the House & Garden archive from some of the most interesting people and best interior designers in the world (see our Top 100 to find out who they are). Things to inspire whether you live in a stately home, a small flat or a tiny ancient cottage.
Consult our online directory The List where you’ll find specialist kitchen designers, bespoke cabinet makers & joiners, carpenters, interior designers, architects and builders in your area to help you with your project.
