Dark kitchen ideas for those that dare to break the mold
Ideas & Inspiration / 29 Sep 2020
In recent years, kitchen colour trends have turned over a new leaf, with more and more people choosing dark kitchens instead of the stereotypical light and airy designs.
There’s no doubt that light kitchens will always be popular, but if you want to break the mold and dare to do dark, we have a range of beautiful, luxurious dark shades to lust over.
Here are some of our favourite dark kitchen ideas for your inspiration.
Dark grey shaker kitchen
This dark grey shaker kitchen is the perfect addition to this charming 18th-century mill worker’s cottage. We love how well our brass cup handles, and other brass features look spectacular with the wood-grained shaker doors and truly bring together this quintessential British countryside look.
Modern dark grey kitchen
This show-stopping modern dark kitchen is complemented wonderfully by the natural wood tones of our Portland Oak. Adding wood features to your dark kitchen is beneficial for adding warmth and lightening up a dark kitchen. Alternatively, opt for a dark wood finish like our Tuscan Walnut to create a luxurious, dramatic look.
Modern dark green kitchen
Green kitchens embody the sense of nature and bring the outdoors inside. Our new green shade, New Forrest is a versatile green that can be mixed and matched a range of different colours, textures and finishes, so the possibilities are endless. The textures of Sutton New Forest, Metalix Copper and Milano Earth Stone in this kitchen all work together seamlessly to create a show-stopping look.

Solva Hunter Green
Inspired by nature, Hunter Green lends itself perfectly to our shaker and classic kitchen ranges and embodies a country style kitchen. This colour is perfect for accents and complementing warmer tones, but as this kitchen demonstrates, it also looks incredibly sumptuous when used throughout the kitchen.
Modern dark blue kitchen
Blue kitchens can provoke calmness and peacefulness, do it’s no wonder why Oxford Blue is a popular choice with our customers. Not only this, Blue complements popular grey colours wonderfully, allowing you to add a bolder colour to a neutral kitchen. Opting for a modern, handleless design like H Line will also allow you to integrate unique, innovative storage solutions like Linea and LineaPlus.

Hardwick Oxford Blue and White featuring Portland Oak, designed by Michelle Ford at our Cardiff Culverhouse Cross showroom
Blue is a great choice for a shaker kitchen as it accentuates shaker doors. The large, dark blue kitchen island seen here makes a bold and luxurious statement. Not only this, it looks gorgeous next to the grey cabinetry.
Modern dark brown kitchen
Sutton Burnt Umber featuring Ligna Farmhouse Oak, Milano Arctic Frost and Metalix Bronze
Dark brown kitchens can be used to add both warmth and glamour to your home. The beauty of our dark brown kitchens is that you can choose from dark wood, dark painted kitchens, Burnt Umber or mix and match both to create a truly luxurious look. This kitchen is the epitome of modern luxury.
