When your options are endless, it can be difficult to find a kitchen colour scheme that you’re truly happy with. From classic blues to rose pinks, there are an infinite number of shades and hues that you can choose from. You also need to consider how your colour choices will harmonise with the rest of your kitchen from your walls, cabinetry as well as your appliances.

If you’re looking to create a kitchen that’s truly timeless that you can take pride in day in, day out, you’ll have to take a step back and consider how you’re planning your luxury kitchen. In this post, we’ll go through things you should consider when deciding on the colour of your kitchen to create something that’s magazine-worthy.

1. Decide on your cabinet colours

Cabinets will always take up the most space in your kitchen, making it the best place to start when you’re deciding your colours. Your choice of material will affect the type of finishes you can choose from. Cabinets will take up approximately 40% of the space in your kitchen so it’s a good idea to go for something that represents your primary colour choice. Shy of painting the walls, cabinets are one of the best ways you can imbue colour into your kitchen space. This makes your cabinet colour choice vital to the overall look of your kitchen.

When looking through a brochure or at your chosen showroom (when we can), look for a colour, texture and material that fits your personality and style. Budget is also a consideration so you can narrow down your choices so you aren’t going to blow your budget. Choose something that speaks to you and you can move onto the next stage of planning your luxury kitchens London.

2. Think about your appliances

Depending on your kitchen design, you may consider built-in appliances which negates the need to consider the colour or look of your appliances. However with freestanding appliances, you’ll obviously want to consider the look and style of them as they will take up a lot of the visual space.

If you are opting for a built-in kitchen, you’ll have to consider which appliances you’ll be using as you won’t be able to finalise your cabinetry until you know what appliances are going into the kitchen.

You should try and match the appliances or the cabinetry as well as ou can to the kitchens theme. Freestanding appliances can be harder to match as there are only a finite range of finishes that larger appliances like your washer, dryer and cooker can come in. Try and consider matching white goods with white or light grey cabinetry if this fits into your theme.

3. Countertops

Each element of your kitchen contributes to the overall aesthetic and the general harmony of the space. Your kitchen counters are an important aspect as any other is when you’re planning the look and feel of your kitchen. Consider the materials you can go for with your kitchen countertops and think about whether or not they’ll fit your cabinetry. You should also think about the use of your kitchen space since harder wearing worktops made from materials like granite will provide a more durable worktop for you to use.

4. Considering your wall colour

A common oversight, kitchen walls are often forgotten as the emphasis is what you’re adding to the kitchen space, rather than styling what already exists in the space. Walls play a vital part in tying the space together visually since there will be large parts of the wall that will be visible. Whilst a lot of the walls will be covered by shelving, cabinets and your backsplashes, there will still be viewable space that you’ll want to tie back into the aesthetic.
