Choosing Your Kitchen

Choosing a brand new kitchen can be an exciting yet daunting experience once you realise there are an infinite number of possible colour schemes for you to pick from. 

To help with the process we’ve compiled a short list of 4 steps, which we think are important for completing the colour scheme of a kitchen. 

Cabinet Colour

This is the most important decision you will make regarding colours as it is usually the most expensive aspect of your new kitchen. It will occupy roughly 40% of the total space. Hence, why it is extremely important not to only pick a colour to represent your own personality but one to represent the personality of the house as a whole.


From Laminates and Solid Woods to Quartz and Granites. Counter top colours & textures are endless. So, finding a colour to suit your door will not be an issue. Tip: always have your door sample with you to match up.

We are a huge fan of Quartz here as shown on one of our Showroom Displays. We feel like a piece of quartz can match up with anything from your traditional colours to more modern navys, greens and greys.


If you decide against integrated appliances, you now have options of traditional stainless steels and blacks or the more modern colours. It’s important to remember that appliances such as range cookers and extractors are a focal point to your kitchen, so colour is very important.

Handles, Sinks and Taps are usually the last features to be installed in your kitchen. While matching handles to your sink/tap isn’t necessary, it is now much more possible with the large ranges that are currently on the market.
