We’ve chosen five of our favourite palettes to highlight kitchen colour schemes that you’ll love for many years to come.
Many of our customers already have an idea of the colours they’re looking for by the time that they visit us in our showroom. Interiors magazines, Instagram and Pinterest offer an almost unlimited selection of images of a wide range of kitchens, allowing your imagination to run wild. Translating these ideas to your home is our speciality, taking into account the light and space that you have available. We’ve taken a closer look at five recent kitchen colour ideas that we’ve worked on to help you decide.
Fresh, relaxed coastal vibes
When we were greeted by a clean, open-plan space that was flooded with natural light, we knew that it’d work perfectly as a simple, coastal-inspired kitchen space. Grey shaker-style cabinets suited this large kitchen colour scheme, paired with a Belfast sink and a beautiful bespoke oak wine cabinet to give a stylish and welcoming aura to the room. The pearl grey is crisp and inviting, working particularly well thanks to the brilliant lighting.
Urban styling in a rural setting
You might not expect to find a modern utilitarian kitchen in a Victorian family home, but it works spectacularly! Contrasting black concrete and bronze glass bring the different elements of the kitchen together, creating a bold and dramatic space. It also functions wonderfully as a family kitchen, with a bank of tall cabinetry creating plenty of storage and an heirloom family wine rack incorporated into the kitchen island.
Creating a calming space
Kitchens in barn conversions are usually light and airy, making them the perfect canvas for warming neutrals. We used Farrow & Ball Purbeck Stone in this beautiful family kitchen, an understated mid grey that resembles the colour of stone found on the Isle of Purbeck. With a traditional farmhouse table in the centre, this kitchen blends functionality with tradition and is truly the heart of the home.
Contemporary family kitchen
Family kitchens are inherently hardworking – they need to cover cooking and dining as well as homework, play, storage and much more. This doesn’t mean they can’t be stylish as well, as proved by this functional and contemporary space. The island with its curved peninsular looked majestic, painted in Farrow and Ball ‘Stiffkey Blue’ with the Bora downdraft hob it really was a cooking delight. We continued this colour in the utility room, where we maximised the limited space with a stacked washing machine and tumble dryer, allowing for a broom cupboard and a sink with a pretty wooden shelf above.
Country house chic
A beautiful manor house set in the Buckinghamshire countryside is deserving of a kitchen fit for the lord of the manor. Working alongside the customer’s design team, we created an open and inviting kitchen that accentuates the vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. We partnered Farrow & Ball Skimming Stone and Oxford Stone to create the look – it’s one of our favourite country kitchen colour schemes.
We’re currently operating under the latest COVID-19 restrictions in relation to the opening hours of our Buckingham showroom.
