If you’re unsure but like the two-tone concept, neutral colours should be your go to. Kitchens are big investments and if bold colours are not your comfort zone, why suddenly choose them for your kitchen. Colour schemes must feel intuitive to you, try not to be too influenced by magazines and social media trends if the bold colours and styles really don’t resonate with you. There are lots of ways to add personality and colour to a kitchen if you do not feel brave enough to choose a bold colour on the cabinetry. Think about your splashback, your tap and sink and your handles, there are so many ways where we can add accents and pops of colour.
Another option is to use different worktop materials to create contrast, for example a wooden worktop on an island with quartz on the worktops. Our advice is to choose one area of contrast though. Go for two-tone on your cabinetry with one worktop style across the kitchen, or one colour on your cabinetry and mix up your worktops. Trying to incorporate both contrasting colours and worktop materials can make a space feel less coherent.
Look for inspiration
Come to our showroom to see samples up close and to see our display kitchens. This will help you hone in on the colours that you’re immediately drawn to. If you’re researching online, browsing Pinterest and Houzz is a great way to get lots of ideas.
When you book a consultation with us, we’ll help you get a palette of colours together to choose from, and we’ll guide you on the materials that do and don’t work together. It’s always best to do this with the samples and materials in front of you to see subtle differences and textures.
When you have a shortlist of colours you’re excited by, always get swatches and samples to take home. Colours can look so different on a screen to when they’re on your wall in daylight and at night. You can also book an in-home consultation with us where we’ll come to your home to help you finalise the perfect palette for your new kitchen.
