Kitchen Trends: Dark Hues

Kitchen Trends: Dark Hues

The past few years have seen a significant shift in our approach to colour in the kitchen, with previously pale palettes and the Scandinavian obsession of recent times being replaced with a love for decadently dark kitchens.

From timeless navy to on-trend teal and inky black, there’s never been a better time to embrace these darker tones in your kitchen. Not only do they add a sense of personality to your kitchen, they are also extremely practical and perfect for covering up any marks or sticky prints left by the kids!

Pair deep rich hues with reclaimed timber to create a real design statement in your kitchen, whilst keeping the space practical and stylish. We love to combine mixed materials such as painted units with stainless steel appliances and salvaged cast iron to give the kitchens a contemporary update. By experimenting with natural salvaged materials, each piece of wood is different and therefore each kitchen individual to the owner.

So, whether you’re keen to embrace this bold shade and make a statement on your walls or cabinetry, or would rather experiment with darker tones through the use of accessories, this 2018 kitchen trend is here to stay.
