Colourful kitchen cabinets!

Exciting ranges of kitchen cabinets from DIY Homefit

If you are about to embark on a kitchen refurbishment, one of the key things to consider is the colour. This is not as easy as it sounds! Colour can make a huge difference to the look and feel of your kitchen.

This is even more the case for the 2021 kitchen, where many families expect it to serve not just for food preparation but also for eating, socialising, and possibly also a home office.

Colour features heavily throughout your kitchen. As well as the decor and flooring of the room itself, the colours of your kitchen cabinets and worktops are also key aspects of your kitchen design.

In this article we share some tips about how to choose the best colours for your kitchen, and show you some fabulous colours that you may not have thought of.


How to choose the best colours for your kitchen

There are three main things to consider when choosing a colour theme for your kitchen:

  • The size and style of your kitchen

Paler colours can reflect light around your kitchen and make it look larger. So if you have a small kitchen it may be better to opt for paler colours for this reason. If you have a larger space, you have more scope to use either darker colours or a combination of colours without detracting from the space.

  • The colours you like

This may sound obvious, but too many people end up with a kitchen that looks wonderful but doesn’t make them feel happy. You spend a lot of time in the kitchen, so it’s important to surround yourself with colours that you enjoy being around. 

  • The ambience you want

Different colours affect the ambience of your kitchen in different ways. For example, green can convey a back to nature feel, blue is generally a calming and peaceful colour, and brighter colours such as reds or yellow can bring a real sense of energy to a room.


Take three colours

We’ve been doing our research to see what colours are on trend for 2021 kitchens. We’ve come across three themes that we want to share with you today.



Green is one of the most popular colours for kitchens at the moment. It seems like you can’t go wrong with any shade of green. Sage green works well in contemporary kitchens, whereas darker greens are great at enhancing a more classical style kitchen. Mint and apple green also bring a welcome freshness to any kitchen.

Perhaps green is popular because of the desire to reflect something of nature in our homes: bringing the outside in. But, whatever your reason for choosing green, it is certainly a smart choice right now.

The kitchen picture below features a kitchen island and kitchen cabinets with our Acrylic Flat Slab doors in a wonderful shade of green, Valore Fjord. In this example, the green is contrasted with earthy neutral tones for the other cabinets, worktop and flooring, giving an overall rich and warm feel to the room.

Blue is another colour that is currently being widely used in kitchens. Popular colours include navy, nautical blue, pastel blue and turquoise. Also popular are two tone kitchens, where one of these shades of blue is used with another matching or contrasting colour.

The kitchen pictured below features kitchen cabinets with our Aldridge Bella Vinyl Wrapped doors in Matt Denim. We love the contrast with the white cabinets and neutral flooring. The whole effect is calming and serene, whilst still being stylish and functional.

Earthy neutrals

Neutral colours are still popular in kitchens, but rather than the traditional blacks and whites, the trend is for calming earthy neutrals, for example ivory, taupe, brown and grey. The earthy feel can be enhanced by accessorising the kitchen with natural materials such as wood and stone.

The kitchen pictured below, which features kitchen cabinets with our Handleless J-Pull Kitchen Doors in Supergloss Cashmere & Graphite, is a wonderful combination of earthy tones for an eclectic yet coordinated look.
