Although we love white gloss kitchens (they’re so practical) we're also very excited to see that dark kitchens that are going to be big for 2017! Painting your kitchen cabinets in a moody hue is an ideal way to create a cosy feel in a space that is often lacking in comfort. Plus it’s a great option for a quick and cost-effective kitchen update. A dramatic colour will make a bold statement, so make sure you pick your shade wisely. Here are a few of our favourite options…
Go for a blue hue, but make sure it’s got a deep, navy tone. This kitchen looks smart and sophisticated, whilst retaining a classic feel. The marble island unit creates a feeling of light and space and means the cabinetry doesn’t dominate too much.
A mid-toned grey is a great option. Dark enough to make a real style statement without feeling too heavy and oppressive. Here the walls and ceiling have been painted in the same tone, giving it a uniform look. Wooden furniture and neutral-coloured floor tiles add warmth.

This strong cabinetry colour is dark, moody and oh-so trendy. The white walls add contrast and the chunky taps lend a contemporary feel. The worktop is a similar colour to the cabinetry showing that sometimes two dark shades together can be complimentary.
