The kitchen is the one room in the house where the family can meet for meals, cook together, help each other with homework or emails or just to relax with a steaming cup of herbal tea before bed.

This is why it is important that it is functional and equipped with all sorts of practical appliances. Yet, it should also be a comfortable and welcoming space where each family member can feel at ease and enjoy the pleasure of company from family and friends.

This is why we've put together 10 fantastic kitchen projects today, which will inspire and delight. We hope that by looking through them, you'll find some designs perfect for a family feast.

Let's take a look!

1. The perfect environment

Wood is one of the best materials for a kitchen, because it helps to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. If you are concerned with too much wood stifling the environment, you can introduce wood in the form of a few select furniture pieces or simply the cabinets and drawers.

As we can see in this design, wood introduces a slightly rustic touch ensuring that the kitchen remains the heart of the home.

2. The linear kitchen

If we have children, we know that the kitchen can be an environment fraught with danger – sharp angles, appliances, electrical outlets, detergents, to name just a few.

To prevent accidents, opt for a simple and minimalist style like we see in this design. The linear composition allows you to maintain a neat and tidy atmosphere, while allowing freedom of movement.

3. Elegance for all

If we want an elegant environment without sacrificing functionality, we should take inspiration from this project. Here we come across a modern and spacious kitchen where wood is mixed with more contemporary materials such as steel, glass and laminate. This creates a very chic and sophisticated environment. 

The kitchen island in the middle of the room is the cherry on top, creating the perfect area for relaxing and coming together.

Have a look at these kitchen islands to treasure.

4. Luxury and comfort for the whole family

The kitchen of our dreams should be able to combine luxury and comfort. This minimalist design is a wonderful example of how this can be achieved.

5. Vintage style

There is nothing more homely than a vintage-style kitchen. Here we can see how the refreshing white cabinets work in harmony with the wooden floors.

6. The ideal cooking spot

Sometimes it takes very little to make a cozy kitchen. A few cheerful decorations such as bright or patterned textiles can do the trick!

In this design, we can see how the gorgeous cushions and bright lampshades make for a very appealing environment.

7. A contemporary family kitchen

Clean and spacious surfaces, a big refrigerator for storing groceries and modern appliances for convenience – what more could you need?

This is the ideal contemporary family kitchen!

8. Cabinets and pantries for families

Here we can see how soft blue tones make for a delightful kitchen while the natural light that flows in through the large skylight enhances the entire space. 

Simple lines and a vase of fresh flowers can go a very long way!

9. Room for everyone

Perhaps you don't want to just use your kitchen for cooking. Maybe you want to relax with a book or chat to the chef on a comfortable set. 

So why not install a window bench like we see here for a cozy little spot?

10. A kitchen that expands

This dynamic space features a very industrial chic look and feel. The different elements come together, creating a multi-functional kitchen that is just so useful – and trendy!

The retractable counters really allow this area to be utilized accordingly.
