Size of your kitchen

When you start to think about color, start by which hues will best highlight your dream kitchen — but also be sure to keep in mind the size of your space.

The room’s size, layout, and natural lighting can all influence the impact of different color choices.

For example, in a smaller kitchen, opting for lighter tones like Rice or Vanilla can create a sense of airiness and openness, making the space feel larger and more inviting. Conversely, larger kitchens can embrace the cozy charm of darker Warm Grey or Graphite shade, adding depth and warmth to the room.



Natural light

In kitchens basking in natural light, darker colors like Black Oak or Dark Oak can play a starring role, adding depth and a little bit of drama. Conversely, in dimmer spaces, lighter hues shine, brightening and expanding the room. This interplay underscores the importance of considering both light levels and color choices to craft a kitchen that feels both spacious and inviting, no matter the natural light conditions.


Match with your interior

Take a quick glance around your home and consider a color that complements its overall style. Maintaining a consistent color scheme throughout can greatly enhance the overall aesthetic, creating a sense of unity and cohesion. For instance, if your rooms are predominantly painted in a cool, light gray hue, consider exploring shades like a Ice Grey or Light Grey. Similarly, if your other rooms are in warm and earthy shades, consider selecting lighter shades like Dust or Butter.



Pair your kitchen design with specific color

Different kitchen styles pair best with specific color schemes. For example, our Classic kitchen harmonize beautifully with Dark Oak shade, while Solid collection tend to shine in Natural Oak or creamy hue like Vanilla. Modern collection, such as, Original often embraces bold and bright colors like Fire Red.


Testing color samples

If you’re still uncertain about choosing the perfect color for your kitchen, remember that testing samples is always an option. Samples are an important step to observe how colors appear in various lighting conditions throughout the day, as well as to assess your personal feelings about certain colors.
