White remains the fail-safe choice for kitchen cabinetry, but colour is creeping into the conversation, with two (or more) door shades as the talking point. coveted combinations include blue and a more neutral hue, or two shades of the same colour – grey gets our vote. Use a darker tone on base units and reserve the lighter shade for wall cabinets to stop your kitchen looking top heavy. Alternatively, make a statement of your island by painting it a different colour from the rest of the kitchen.
Project details Farrow & Ball’s Down Pipe packs a seriously stylish punch in this Mowlem & Co kitchen, where tall, dark and handsome units stretch to the ceiling to maximise storage. A low ceiling could have been an issue, had it not been for a healthy dose of stony Ground paint (also Farrow & Ball) to lighten the visual load. what it lacks in height, this kitchen more than makes up for in space. A trio of pendants emphasises the generous 4004 Raw Concrete worktop, from around £300sq m, Caesarstone. A Mowlem & Co kitchen starts from £30,000.
