Suggestions for colour of kitchen cabinets please

Heather Robinson

Renovating our small U shaped kitchen and the following items are already chosen

  • Black & stainless free standing 90cm SMEG cooker
  • Black range hood
  • Stainless Fridge and Dishwasher
  • Marri timber bench tops
  • White double butler sink
  • Caramel darkish oak floorboards - wide

Our home is coastal and we have a lovely view of the river - so we want a coastal, beach, Hamptons feel with Shaker cupboards and black knobs - the tap ware is also not chosen as yet but it will be more Old English style tap ware rather than too sleek!

So am wondering what colour cabinetry to have and also what colour splash back - prefer to have glass as like the ease of cleaning!

Its a open plan home and the floor boards stretch right thru and our living room style and colours will be as above with blues, some greens and white/creams - Hamptons casual chic!

Love to have some advice from other renovators please!

    I would personally stick to white cabinets... I know, not very original... but I think white works best with timber benchtops... and black/white/timber is a fail-proof/timesless combo imo...

    But if you wanted to inject a bit of colour... and based on your coastal theme description... then I would suggest maybe duck egg blue?... do a search of "duck egg blue kitchen" in photos on Houzz AU

    I agree about duck egg blue. It's a really versatile atmospheric colour. This colour would work too
