If you would like to embrace the Spanish theme even further in your kitchen, the design should focus on dark wood units for a homely rustic look. If you were planning on having a tiled floor in your kitchen, a Spanish kitchen design is also an obvious choice.

You can take the look even further and add exposed beams, false or otherwise. Wall tiles can be decorative and colourful for a bolder look if you wish.

So many of you enjoy visiting America, whether it’s Florida, California or somewhere like New York. If you have stayed in a villa or holiday home in the US my guess is that you have been introduced to some inspired kitchen features like the double fridge freezer with integrated cool water and ice dispenser.

If you want to recreate a similar look in your own home, when you head to the kitchen warehouse the items that need to be on your wish list are breakfast stools and floating kitchen islands. An American inspired also embraces a modern look typically featuring on trend colours like greys with silver tiles. Lighting should be bright and integrated to finish the look and you’ll soon be enjoying pancakes and maple syrup (bacon optional) in your holiday inspired space.
