Pretty and practical kitchens perfect for a star baker

The Great British Bake Off is back and as our love for the new contestants facing Paul and Prue grows each week.

We know the show will also be motivating people to get in the kitchen. So, this week over on Daily Property News’ Instagram account we’re celebrating Bake Off being back by looking at seven pretty and practical kitchens for interior inspiration.

Beecham Place in Somerset

Oh hello double oven – that’s just what every star baker needs! We can imagine enjoying a fresh croissant straight from the oven while flicking through magazine and drinking coffee on a Sunday.

Having a dining room table in the kitchen is handy and also can be used for extra preparation space. Great for cakes with multiple layers or batches of biscuits, scones or muffins.

Dark forest greens are going to be big this autumn. Get ahead of the trend by adding heavier greens to your kitchen ideally with a contrasting white unit to keep the look balanced.

Natural wood and elephant grey create a stunning look in this kitchen! The Great British Bake off is giving us so much motivation to get in the kitchen, and wouldn’t it be nice to step into this beauty to get your bake on?

King’s Wood Gate in Monmouthshire

Pinks, palms and plenty of grey, this kitchen is photo ready! The pink blush chairs and plants brighten the grey and white decor and put an instantly modern twist on a classic kitchen design. This kitchen is so pretty that we can see bakes being positioned for pictures by avid bakers ready to post to Instagram. We’re not judging we’re right there with you!

Penndrumm Fields in Cornwall

Tick tock! We love the big clock so we can time those bakes – no one likes a soggy bottom! Accessories can be stylish and useful, think carefully what you’re putting into your space and see if items can have a multiple purpose. Also, we love the bright fresh vibes a lemon yellow colour scheme adds to a kitchen.

New Quarter in Hampshire

All bakers know how useful work top space is. Kitchens need to be pretty but they also need to be practical after all!

Hanbury Village in Torfaen

Barratt South Wales Hanbury Village Stratford kitchen

This kitchen is ready to bake a show-stopper. There is plenty of work space, a big island, a double oven and a classic white and black theme that will not date quickly. Clear that island off, we’re going to sprinkle it with flour and roll out some dough!

These kitchens from Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes provide plenty of inspiration and will having you designing a kitchen fit for a star baker!
