I'm building a new house and planning the kitchen and I definitely would never put a dark kitchen in my new home. That said I'm not a fan of a white kitchen either because I don't like to do something because everybody else is doing it. I like to be different. My present kitchen is 2 pack flannel and when I chose it nobody had that colour but then it became more popular. I still like flannel but want a change if I can find what I'm looking for. All the best everyone.

Did not want yet another white kitchen with white counter tops so chose blue and real timber counters and ripped out grey drab tiled floor and replaced with timber. Used my photographs of NZ on splash backs.

We went for Magnet’s Fusion kitchen in champagne, which is a greyish/taupe but looks different in different lights throughout the day. The wall is Dulux Raspberry Bellini.
