A Dream Family Kitchen

A Dream Family Kitchen

BEKO asked us to think about our dream family kitchen, what our kitchen means to us, what we’d do if we could revamp it and what key appliance we couldn’t live without. We’d love a new kitchen, it’s definitely the biggest purchase on our wish list for our home. We have a good sized kitchen diner that isn’t very well laid out and is somewhat dated and I’d love to be able to start from scratch and get a space that is both beautiful and very user friendly. Currently, it’s neither.


When I think about a dream family kitchen my ideas always start with a great cooker. It’s sort of the key to the whole thing really. It’s probably because I’m working with a rubbish oven at the moment. It takes forever to get anywhere near temperature and it’s not very pretty. I don’t know who thought a green oven and hob were a good idea because frankly they just look a bit odd! This Double Oven from the built in appliances range by BEKO looks perfect, plenty of oven space perfect for cooking great big family meals!

My mood board is based around this cooker, my love of grey and also my love of colour.

I love the sleek look of these grey cabinets, they just look cool. I think you could put any coloured accessories with them but I went bold because I think they can take it. The licence plate mirror would be a great talking piece, it’s cool and colourful and would really draw your eye. The Poole Pottery vase is beautiful. I’ve been a fan of Poole Pottery for years now and I already have this vase in black and it’s one of my favourite decorative items. The colours on this one are just stunning, warm and inviting and crying out for beautiful flowers. I love flowers in my kitchen, they make me smile, especially if I’m washing up!

I think a kitchen should be a place for family and if we could re-do our kitchen like this I know it would be the most popular room in our house. To keep the brightness I chose this brightly coloured tableware and I love the everyday useability of this set. I can just imagine us all sat round enjoying a big fat roast dinner together in our dream family kitchen. I think this kitchen would make me want to cook!

  1. Lovely idea for a kitchen. I love the pop of colour with the accessories.
    I would also LOVE to revamp our kitchen. In an ideal world I would love to extend it, to create more surface and cupboard space. I’m also with you on a new oven. Our current one was left from the previous owner of the house and it’s really not very nice, what I would reeeeally love is an AGA but that’s a bit of a pipedream! x
