The Power of Coloured Cabinetry

One of the hottest trends right now is coloured cabinetry. Gone are the days when white was the default, or in some cases, the ONLY choice. Today, homeowners are embracing a wide range of colours to bring personality and warmth into their kitchens. From deep blues and forest greens to soft pastels, the options are endless. Coloured cabinetry can instantly transform the look and feel of your kitchen, making it unique and inviting. 


What’s in Fashion Now?

Grooved Kitchen

Currently, we see a significant shift towards earthy tones and nature-inspired colours, mixed with traditional shaker styles or modern linear grooved cabinets. Think muted greens or rich navy blues and natural woodland colours . These shades and textured cabinets not only add depth and character to your kitchen but also create a calming and grounded atmosphere.

 Another popular trend is the two-tone cabinetry, where you mix and match different colours for the upper and lower cabinets. This approach adds visual interest and allows you to play with contrasts and harmonies.



Timeless Choices Timeless Kitchen

While trends come and go, some colours and styles remain timeless. Classic white, soft greys, and natural wood effect finishes never go out of style.  These colours provide a neutral backdrop that you can easily update with accessories and decor. They are also versatile, suiting any kitchen style from modern to traditional. If you prefer a timeless look, you can never go wrong with these classic choices.

Why Certain Kitchens Lend Themselves to Certain Colours

The size, layout, and natural light in your kitchen play a significant role in colour selection. For smaller kitchens, lighter colours can make the space feel larger and more open. On the other hand, spacious kitchens can handle darker, more dramatic colours without feeling overwhelming. If your kitchen has plenty of natural light, you can experiment with darker shades, as the light will balance out the depth of the colour.

Upcoming Kitchen Cabinetry Trends

Looking ahead, we see a continued appreciation for bold, statement colours paired with natural elements. Think dark green cabinets with brass hardware and wooden countertops. There’s also a growing interest in more integration; with cabinetry designed to hide appliances, gadgets and a good old pantry, this creates a clean and uncluttered look.
