Pigeon perfect, varying the colour on kitchen cabinetry is a clever way to distort perspective and give the impression of more space,’ says Jasper Middleton, Design Director, Middleton Bespoke. ‘In this galley-style kitchen we used pale paint on the taller, more dominant cabinetry, making it appear to fade into the background a little. Painting the base units in a different, much darker shade helps draw the eyes away and distracts attention from the room’s narrow shape.
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.
Contemporary cream gallery kitchen with wood flooring. Go for a contemporary, urban look by opting for handleless cream gloss units - this sleek design is perfect for galley kitchens, such as those in Victorian properties. Add extra reflective surfaces with a coloured glass splashback and granite worktop. Built-in appliances fitted at eye level give the kitchen units a streamlined feel, while rich wood flooring adds warmth.
