As a bustling hive of activity, the kitchen has long been the heart of the home, but with the trend for open-plan living continuing to grow, our kitchens are so much more than just a place to cook and enjoy a cup of tea. With a truly beautiful range of styles to choose from and a host of practical and eye-catching design features to include, the kitchen can be a wonderful space to share with family and friends on special occasions. And now the leaves are starting to fall; it’s the perfect time to consider how you can transform your kitchen into an elegant and practical space for entertaining. To help you find some great inspiration for your project, we’ve put together a collection of some of our favourite Kent kitchens that are ideal for cooking, socialising and wowing your guests.
Pristine Bromley Kitchen With All The Mod Cons
This stylish kitchen in Bromley creates a showstopping focal point to our client’s home. At the centre of the space sits an elegant navy blue kitchen island with accompanying breakfast bar seating. Positioned opposite the wide bi-fold doors, the seating offers guests a stunning view into the garden while the doors create a fantastic indoor-outdoor effect when open.
A host of luxurious, cutting-edge appliances make this Bromley kitchen ideal for entertaining. A full-size wine cooler offers plenty of space to stock up on drinks, while a sleek Quooker boiling tap ensures tea and coffee are always ready to go.
One of the most exciting features in this kitchen is the state-of-the-art Bora venting hob. The ingenious hob includes an in-built extraction system which has allowed us to forego the traditional overhead cooker hood and open up the space. Positioning the hob at the island allows the host to socialise while wowing their guests with their cooking. This bright and sophisticated contemporary kitchen perfectly combines practicality and style, making it ideal for every occasion.
Glamorous Country Kitchen Near Orpington
With their sleek lines and minimal detailing, modern kitchens are incredibly popular when it comes to open-plan living. However, as this gorgeous Orpington interior goes to show, classic kitchens can create an equally luxurious and even more cosy backdrop to cooking and entertaining.
Farrow and Ball’s Wevet white adds a clean contemporary edge to the traditional handcrafted in-frame design. The beautifully balanced fresh colour scheme paired with classic detailing and an idyllic range cooker creates a charming yet distinctly glamorous setting, ideal for making guests feel at home.
A specially designed bench seat or banquette perfectly complements the relaxed yet stylish tone of the room while cleverly maximising the compact space. The curved seat makes for a luxurious and eye-catching focal point while elegantly accommodating the round dining table.
Last but certainly not least, we’ve added a wonderful final flourish to this sophisticated and sociable Orpington kitchen; a glitzy cocktail bar makes a fantastic party piece, perfectly completing the space.
Showstopping Modern Maidstone Kitchen
If there’s one sure-fire way to wow your guests, it’s with a truly showstopping special occasion worthy design. The dramatic textures and surface finishes at the heart of this modern Maidstone kitchen make a bold and breath-taking statement. Our client handpicked their Orinoco Sense granite worktop. The sleek black surface with deep rivulets of shimmering copper creates a breath-taking focal point, contrasting beautifully against the white marble splashback and breakfast bar. Surrounded by Ebony wood and more subtle Graphite Gloss cabinets, natural materials give this kitchen a wonderfully extravagant feel.
It’s not just the kitchen itself that gives this space a spectacular sense of drama. The fantastic high ceilings establish an air of occasion. A stunning contemporary chandelier mirroring the apex of the roof accentuates the spectacular space. With three separate seating areas, all with a stunning view to admire, there’s plenty of room for guests to relax and soak up the impressive ambience. The breakfast bar and kitchen island make the perfect spot to serve up drinks and nibbles. This extraordinary Maidstone kitchen is certainly a remarkable space for hosting.

Soft olive green walls tie in with the deep green of the AGA, bringing a breath of fresh air to the space. The carefully balanced colour scheme is wonderfully underpinned by a warm wood floor that complements the age of the property.
Stunning sculptural pendant lights accentuate the seating area surrounding the island. The communal arrangement of bar stools is ideal for socialising and comfortably enjoying a meal.
