Kitchen Colour Inspiration


Stuck on choosing a colour for your kitchen?


Whilst colour has the power to change moods, it can also change the look and feel of a room completely. As the kitchen is a central hub where the majority of families spend most of their time socialising and coming together, it’s key that the colour you choose suits you and your family whilst creating a room you just won’t want to leave. 


Whether you go for a bold, moody dark pallet or keep it simple and neutral – Here is some inspiration to help you decide.



A popular choice, giving you a simple, classic base to decorate the rest of the kitchen with pops of colour. A practical option that will stand the test of time and not go out of style. 


MANOR FARM KITCHEN - barn convertion overlooking fields with central island, aga in farrow and ball


Why not pair grey with a blue, green or pink high-level cabinetry or feature island to mix it up. 

Take a look at our Manor Farm project pairing classic grey and blue cabinetry



A calming, elegant colour that creates a showstopping, blank canvas for you to make your mark. Opt for a minimal, stripped back look in line with the Japanese minimalist trend. Or, pair your white with bright, vibrant appliances and artwork to bring real personality to the room. 

White Shaker Kitchen with tall cabinets and brass splashback


White is a great choice to let the design and other elements of your kitchen be the standout feature of the room like this brass worktop and splash back. 




A striking, classic option. At Honest Kitchens, we love our Farrow and Ball blue shades; Railings, Inchyra Blue, Down Pipe, Hague Blue and Vardo. All so different and unique.

Blue kitchens hold a real sense of timeless sophistication, whilst being able to withstand everyday family life, little hands and messy cooking.

We like to pair blue with a calming white or grey cabinetry- Or make the cabinetry the focal point and choose a strong, darker blue and pair it with a traditional brass handle to add elegance. 




A calming, natural feel to your home. Ideal to come home to after a busy day and unwind. 

We like to think that green kitchens mirror how their owner will live, recycling and living green! 




A statement colour, oozing personality. 

We’ve recently completed our [Kings heath] kitchen where the client wanted to express the family’s creativity and love of colour through the kitchen where they spend most of their time. We even paired it with a bright orange larder interior and the results really are stunning. 


Honest Kitchens flat panel kitchen with quartz stone culture worktop and cork flooring




Farrow & Balls’ Setting Plaster has made us re-think our favourite kitchen colours. 

The subtle, warming tone bring heaps of personality to a kitchen and looks impeccable next to white quartz or wooden worktop. We’ve seen it work wonders in industrial look kitchens and the traditional country kitchens – It’s a shade you can really put your own spin and style on.
