This isn’t a trick question, promise! What do you think about dark kitchens? There isn’t a right or wrong answer (honest) but there is a stat hanging round that 98% of showroom kitchens sold are white gloss.... What that tells me, is that whatever end of the budget you sit, essentially a kitchen is a whacking great spend in the budget so people don’t want to make a mistake so inevitably feel a ‘safe’ bet in terms of colour will never date?? Despite this ‘playing it safe’ malarkey we spend a disproportionate amount of time hanging out in our kitchens, whatever the size.
Our design philosophy /approach (whatever sounds less pretentious 😆) is that if you love something, let that guide the rest of the design. Personally I think a darker kitchen can really make a space feel luxurious, special and bursting with personality. Especially in the evening when the lights are on and it comes to life.
If you are about to buy a new kitchen, just double check yourself and see what else makes your heart happy. 😘
