A Holiday Challenge?
Hey everyone - is anyone up for a small Holiday Challenge?  Some of you might remember the shipping container home challenge and the wiggly modular walled building challenge?  Just for fun and no prizes.

We often complain that there are not enough kitchens here at Roomstyler - how about creating some bespoke kitchens using the wizardry of invisible walls and doors to give Roomstyler some impressions of kitchens you would like to see? who knows maybe they will decide to adopt some of them and give us more kitchen choices ... and if not then we have all gained experience with these sneaky cheats.

I will link a template below and an example - anyone who does not know how the invisible walls can help us out can take the example to pieces first (and feel free to post questions so we can share knowledge).  

You don't have to use the template you can make your own kitchen layout using the same techniques.  You don't have to make an entire kitchen - a close up of specific details is just as valid.

No prizes - no winners or runners up and no deadlines but it would be great to post your rooms in this thread when you are happy.

Prefer moodboards? no problem link a moodboard of a kitchen theme or design you would love to be able to use here in the 3D planner ...

Look forward to seeing everyone's ideas ... happy (designing) holidays!

This template will make an L shaped kitchen in a square room - the invisible walls will support cupboard doors for base units (furthest from room walls) and for wall units (closest to room walls)  http://roomstyler.com/users/55634/rooms/8333438

For anyone not familiar with the floating or invisible walls be careful not to join the ends to the room walls - the easiest way to manipulate them is to select therm and use the arrow keys to move them outside the room (and then back in again the same way)

I used that template to make this example http://roomstyler.com/users/55634/rooms/8333407 - please feel free to make a private copy to wrk out how it is put together.

Here are two older designs of mine based on this idea, without use of invisible walls but with the use of windows:

This is easier in my opinion, but I really like your version @nonehpets, so I'll give it a try later this week!It's nice you shared your idea with us!

Those are both gorgeous Vagrfd and especially the one using the tile texture on the base unit doors.  Even without using the invisible walls it shows interesting kitchen designs compared to the ones we have to just slot in (although they have got better recently they are still on fixed colour/finish themes)

This technique can give you countless options for different textures so people here can show their creativity in the best way!I hope we'll see lots of great kitchens now you've started this topic!

Love that colour scheme Shadower - great contribution to the challenge.

Here is a variation (spiced aubergine inspiration) with an island as well http://roomstyler.com/users/55634/rooms/8342631

Functional pull out larder units would be a fab addition? http://roomstyler.com/users/55634/rooms/8342651

Hello Nonehpets,

There is my bespoke kitchen design:)

I took a break to use the same invisible walls to make bay windows and fireplaces but now I am back on kitchens  here is another http://roomstyler.com/users/55634/rooms/8391687

This one features an open drawer as well as glazed cupboards, a two door larder unit and a well disguised stacked washer and dryer (there is a sink but I am still finding the kitchen sinks lacking in height adjustment so it is a hidden sink with fold down taps and a chopping board cover flush with the worktop! ;)  )

I love doing kitchens! But it is hard with limited items. Here is my addition to the conversation: http://roomstyler.com/users/536858/rooms/8394398  I used the window option this time but I love the invisible wall option as well because I can then leave cabinets "open". But this is nice too because with them closed I am able to place art on the wall and give the appearance the cabinets are actually full of things.
