Dark colours in any space create a certain kind of ambience – rich, deep blues and greens and versatile, masculine greys and even blacks are perfect for creating a calming, brooding yet inviting and warm atmosphere. Better for relatively large spaces, and combined with the right lighting (and preferably some natural light) these kitchens can be a cut above the rest – striking, dramatic and captivating!
The deep, earthy look of wood goes perfectly with kitchen cabinets painted in sharp, darker hues as does crisp white or grey marbled work surfaces. A dramatic midnight blue on your cabinets or walls will add a whole new dimension to your kitchen scheme – ensuring it will stand out from the crowd for years to come. Grey is also a big part of the dark and dramatic trend, with an array of grey shades now taking centre stage to ‘greige’ (grey and biege) to taupe and mushroom.
The Design Project Manager for this stunning kitchen, Josie Medved, said; “Dark kitchens are always quite striking and make a welcome change to the normal white gloss styles you see. A dark palette, like Midnight Blue or Anthracite is captivating and sophisticated, especially when paired with copper accents and a statement floor.”
