Geometric kitchen splashback, if you love the tradtional black-and-white floor tiles, but you want something a little different, try the monochrome look with wall tiles instead. Here, the splashback is made of ceramic tiles in a zig-zag pattern, which follows the shape of the shelf, too. Industrial-chic kitchen, if you’re designing a monochrome kitchen, but are worried the effect will be too harsh, try a few black accessories teamed with bright primary colours; it really works in a utility-style kitchen like this one.
Cream kitchens are one of the most popular styles – with other colours such as ivory, off-white and buttermilk also popular choices. This colour lends itself to a number of decorating styles, from rustic to contemporary. A new kitchen is a huge investment, so it’s no surprise that so many of us opt for a shade that will stand the test of time. You might choose an ultra-modern glossy cream kitchen that combines streamlined cabinetry with the latest appliances, or perhaps use painted cream cupboards to transform a cottage kitchen that has low ceilings.
Jewel tones, if your inner creative self is longing for rich tones but your more practical head is saying choose something timeless, consider using a brighter hue inside cabinetry for a stylish colour fix,’ suggests Kiran Noonan, Marketing Director, John Lewis of Hungerford. ‘Try exotic jewel tones – like this fabulous Persian Green – and create a striking backdrop for pure white china along the way. Install internal LEDs to bring the colour to life by night.
Matching shades of white across different surfaces can be tricky. For example, a wallpaper with a white background may look more like cream next to a white table, so try to keep them apart, using black accessories as punctuation. A monochrome scheme can be bold and will usually benefit from some texture and a mix of surface finishes. Gloss and matt, opaque and dense - build up layers to add extra interest and soften any harshness.
