Which colour gloss kitchen should I go for?

A: Which colour gloss kitchen should I go for? This is a question which I am often asked. There is no definitive ‘right’ answer as everyone’s taste is different and a world in which all people had the same views/opinions/tastes would be so predictable/mundane and can I say boring! However there are certainly several factors to consider when making a decision.

  1. Is the new kitchen part of a larger family area?
  2. Is the new kitchen space to be used as an entertaining area?
  3. Is the kitchen area easily assessable to the garden and possibly have bifolding doors?

The benefits of a neutral gloss kitchen colour

Gone are the days when a kitchen was just a kitchen. Now we are removing walls to create a seamless family/entertaining zone and we therefore expect so much more from our ‘space’. So with that in mind if there is a ‘yes’ to any of the above questions then it would possibly be wise to opt for a neutral colour. I can assure you that this choice does not have to be dull. As my suppliers specialise in individual colours we can ensure that the door colour is exactly the colour you require as we match colours from all paint suppliers such as Dulux, Farrow & Ball, Sanderson to name just a few. This means you’re offered so much more than just a choice of either white, cream or grey.

You can be daring with the accent colours in your gloss kitchen

More often than not my brief is to supply and fit a kitchen that has plenty of storage, future proof as far as technology is concerned so everyone can do their work easily, adaptable for an ‘adult’ dinner party zone and is sympathetic to the exterior view as many of my client have bifolding doors leading to the garden. Sounds easy right? Well it doesn’t have to be tricky. If you choose a neutral shade of kitchen door and then choose a colour palette for the walls and accessories which brings out your personality (Farrow & Ball, the Little Green Paint Company, Zoffany, Fired Earth to name just a few have the most amazing colour pallets) then your attention in drawn to the walls and accessories accent colours and not the kitchen doors. This will have two benefits, firstly it will make the kitchen area look larger but secondly and most importantly the actual units will look current for longer as the wall colour and accessories need only change. As my suppliers specialise in individual colours we can ensure that the door colour is exactly what you want.
In conclusion, neutral units in a French Grey, Cashmere or Limestone look stunning but there’s always room for a Peony, Turquoise or Aubergine! I hope I’ve helped.
