Sometimes you just have to throw the rule book out of the window when it comes to decorating your home.
Who cares if other people don't love your home; the only people who have to love it are those who live in it.
So, why don't you give in to your decorating desires and make your house the home that you have been dreaming of, craving and lusting over for so long; buy things that make your heart skip a beat and make your eyes dance with pleasure as you look at and live in your home each and every day.
And to get you started, take a look at eleven kitchen makeovers that have thrown that rule book out of the window and have been decorated for the sake of their owners pleasure.
This first kitchen comes from @suburbansalon and really throws caution to the wind. We adore the yellow, fluffy bench at the table and the use of such a variety of pictures being hung on the wall.
This is a wonderfully eclectic mix of styles but it works perfectly.
This kitchen is by @thisstyle_rocks and we can concur that this style absolutely does rock!
We love the bold use of wallpaper in the kitchen and the daring shade of green echoed through the cooker.
You can see they don't like to follow rules!!!
Who say kitchen cupboards have to be rectangular? @mad_about_the_house makes a wonderful statement of giving their cupboards beautiful arches.
We also love the window seat, ideal for guests sharing your kitchen whilst you cook or make tea!
@passionforbaking certainly isn't afraid to show off their 'pink' side!
We love the purposefully placed muted shades of deliciousness that are going on in the kitchen.
Very retro inspired.
This kitchen is all about being social and getting involved.
@torills_hus clearly loves to have gatherings and socials that will be enjoyed by all.
@molin_plattsattning has kept this kitchen simple and elegant, but what drew us to this kitchen was the beautiful shade of green of the kitchen cabinets mixed with marble worktops and the almost cement effect on the walls.
Simple, chic and clever.
Keeping along the industrial theme, @huizemus has incorporated metal with cement effect to perfection.
We also have a lot of time for the beautifully simple hanging lights and open shelves.
For those with more head room, why not splash out and get large glass cupboards like these from @moniquewrightineriordesign
This is a quirky way to show off your contents of your cupboards.
This also means they need to be kept neat and tidy!
@ann.living had brought their kitchen into the wilds of the jungle by framing it with a plant on one side and beautiful plant wallpaper on the other.
We really like the was there are no handles in this kitchen - very daring!
Well, there is no way to miss this colour scheme... Pink and Black!
Simple and bold.
This kitchen from @crosbystudios will make a grand statement in your home and if you love these two colours, then this is your ideal kitchen.
What statement will you be making in your kitchen? What would you do to your kitchen if you were to throw out the rule book?
