We look at the trend for matt finished kitchens and the key colours for 2017

Monochrome – Häcker’s Uno kitchen
has been given a striking
new colour finish in this contemporary compilation. The graphite colourway boasts a matt texture that makes this deep hue appear even more contemporary. White floating shelves, complementary white painted-top bar stools and the near-black cabinetry add a modern twist to the traditional monochromatic palette, with wooden flooring and splashes of green foliage that inject life and colour.

Greenery – January this year saw Greenery sprout into fashion. The nature-inspired colour was named Pantone Colour of the Year 2017 and expresses a connection between the inside and out which has also been explored through the addition of indoor plants and teaming green hues with natural woods and stones. Mereway’s Bridgewater kitchen features simple bevelled edges – a subtle take on
shaker style – and is painted in a relaxed Dark Sage and Prosecco colour combination. Mereway Kitchens |

Millennial pink – “Pink and purple are perfect hues for creating a warm, welcoming environment where everyone can feel at home,” commented Masterclass Kitchens. This statement is certainly seen through in the company’s Solva kitchen that
is shown here in a combination of Rose pink and Scots Grey. Similarly to Greenery, Millennial Pink and its sister shades saw
a huge breakthrough this year, and present the clear connection between fashion and kitchen design, having been taken directly from the catwalk to the kitchen. Masterclass Kitchens |
