The difference between a regular kitchen and a dream kitchen is really in the details. Are you looking for kitchen design ideas? We can provide you with inspiration: take a look at our list of 25 different ideas to turn your kitchen into a dream space.

A touch of color

1. A two-tone kitchen

Two-tone kitchens are very trendy if you want to create a stunning look everyone will love. Black and white are a striking option, but you can also opt for a look like white and wood, or black and wood, or an even more creative option. Discover our different kitchen design color options! Among other things, you will see that natural hues are among the 2023 trends for the kitchen.

2. Art for a stunning look

No matter the kitchen design, an original art piece or reproduction can fit perfectly into your kitchen or add a touch of color. You could opt for a peaceful landscape, a reproduction of a classic masterpiece or contemporary art to brighten up your space. You could also integrate a few smaller pieces into your décor.

3. Introducing aromatic herbs and green plants

Although aromatic herbs are the perfect addition to a delicious dish, they can also be an elegant touch for your kitchen! The green color from herbs and plants can definitely brighten up a room, especially if you have opted for a minimalist design or more neutral colors. This is an excellent decoration idea for your kitchen that can create a stunning contrast and a natural look!

4. Adding decorative wallpaper as an accent wall or backsplash

Creative backsplash design ideas add a lot of personality to a space. With decorative wallpaper, you can enjoy a new backsplash or accent wall very easily, on top of being an inexpensive option. You do not need to remove your tiles, you can simply apply your wallpaper directly to the tiles and voilà!

5. Choose chairs and tables that blend into the kitchen design

The old table and chairs that were handed down to you by your parents, or the furniture from your old apartment don’t necessarily fit into your current interior design, and can actually work against it. Don’t overlook the importance of good furniture and choose a model that blends into your home décor, in terms of color, material and design.

6. 6. Incorporate a unique and elegant sink faucet as a focal point

A faucet is an element that is often overlooked… but you could also choose to use it to your advantage in order to tie it into your trendy kitchen design. Opt for an elegant shape, but you might also want to think of color. A black, white or brass colored faucet is sure to stand out.

7. Opt for a monochrome look for your cabinets, countertop and appliances

If you want to create a streamlined and harmonious look, a monochrome palette is perfect. In order to succeed, you will have to think of the color for the cabinets, countertop and kitchen appliances. Will you go for a wood monochrome style, pure and matte white, or a noble and elegant greige color palette? Our customizable kitchen cabinets will open up a whole world of possibilities.

8. 8. Integrate the pantry door into your decor, for a more modern and minimalist look

The minimalist trend is extremely popular. For a successful design, forget heavy ornamental furniture and opt for cabinets that blend into your design seamlessly. You should opt for solid colors and uniform materials, and also keep decorations to a minimum. Frameless doors from the INTEGRA series will allow you to accomplish this type of design successfully. It is also possible to cover the door with the same type of veneer or finish as your kitchen cabinets.

9. Opt for matte cabinets

Matte finishes are easily incorporated into a variety of designs, no matter if you prefer a minimalist, contemporary or rustic style. Their understated look provides your décor with a natural charm. With DÖRR Industries, you will find several kitchen cabinet styles in a matt, natural or untreated finish, for a style you will love.
