How to personalise your kitchen

Burlanes are specialists in creating outstanding kitchen designs. Each project is designed, handmade and installed by our multi-skilled team. One of the questions we often get asked is how we can help you personalise your finished project to reflect you.


Appliances are both a functional and architectural addition to your finished kitchen. Burlanes work with a number of leading brands, we focus on sourcing the best and most reliable manufacturers. So from the iconic AGA to the multifunctional Quooker tap, we can advise you on the best combination of products for your kitchen.


Wall art can help elevate your space through color, character and design, establishing a welcoming and inviting kitchen that feels personal and unique. We can help you source stunning murals for your kitchen adding vibrancy, energy and accent colours to your space.

Handles and Hardware

Handles and hardware are incredibly important design features of your new kitchen. Time and consideration should be taken when deciding which hardware to go for as it will have such an impact on the final feel of the room. The hardware size, chosen material, and finish will play a part in telling the story of your new space. Do not be afraid to mix handles either. As long as the finish and colour match well, a combination of knobs, pulls, cups, and latches, when chosen correctly, will look beautiful and will give each area of your kitchen a unique feel. 


It is essential that lighting is carefully considered to create a welcoming and inviting kitchen. We would always advise making the most of natural light, and letting as much light into the room as possible. Alternatively, if your kitchen has a dark and moody vibe, pendant lights over the island are a great use of light, and wall lights are lovely too.


There is a huge range of tiles available to you from those that exude old-world glamour to fun designs that will bring a smile to your face. On walls, they will protect working areas, including behind the hob and the splashback, and as kitchen flooring, tiles are hard wearing and easy to clean.


Investing in your worktop is essential, as it is one of the most hardwearing areas in your kitchen space. We work with beautiful natural stone worktops and stunning man-made alternatives to suit your home and lifestyle perfectly. 

Colour Combinations

Colour trends come and go, and whilst we love seeing and sharing interior trends on social media and in magazines, we do always say that the final decision should be a colour that you love, and would chose again and again for the next 10 years. If a pop of colour in your kitchen would reflect your personality, your home and be something you love coming down to each morning, then go for it!
