Over the years we've posted hundreds of admirable English kitchens and learned a lot about kitchen design in the process. Here's a roundup of 12 of our favorites—kitchens that have influenced the way we think about cooking and dining. Above: Niki Turner designed this kitchen in a converted chapel ( Jonathan Tuckey designed an extension as well). See Divine Intervention: The Providence Chapel in Wiltshire . Above: Chef Alastair Hendy's London kitchen was designed over a decade ago but still feels modern; see more at Revolution Road: A Groundbreaking Kitchen in London . Above: A favorite recent discovery: Designer Jamie Blake of Blakes London orchestrated the kitchen in this London Victorian house; see more at Steal This Look: The Endless Summer Kitchen. Above: Remodelista UK editor Christine Chang Hanway takes us through the process of overhauling her London kitchen in Rehab Diary: Sleuthing for Space in My Kitchen . Above: Ever since we spotted furniture designer  Faye Toogood's kitchen in the New York Times , we've been obsessed (Izabella so much so that she was inspired to install similar Muuto-Style Cabinet Pulls in her kitchen). Above: Architect David Kohn converted a ruined 19th-century stable into a contemporary pavilion; we especially like the kitchen (see more at A Stable Reborn in Rural Norfolk) . Above: A classic yet subtly glamorous kitchen; for more, go to  Steal This Look: Minimalist English Kitchen . Above: A perennial favorite, the British Standard kitchen (the budget-conscious offering from Plain English); see more at Kitchen Confidential: 10 Ways to Achieve the Plain English Look Above: Another Jamie Blake kitchen we're enamored of; for full details, go to  The Designer Is In: A Scandi Kitchen in a London Victorian . Above: Louisa Grey figured out how to create a light-filled kitchen in her London basement; see  Reader Rehab: A London Stylist at Home . Above: A modern take on Shaker design, this London kitchen by Devol includes a suspended laundry rack for hanging tea towels and colanders (see more at A Shaker-Inspired Kitchen in London ). Above: London interior designer Charles Mellersch wanted to telegraph a "robust sensibility" in this Notting Hill kitchen, and so he chose honed marble, matte tiles, and brass. See the full project in  The Designer Is In: An Optimist in London . And for more brass, go to  Trend Alert: 12 Kitchens with Brass Accents . British kitchen design crops up all over.
