    Hi, just wondering what colour paint has been used on the cupboards please (dulux colour)? I have read above that you have painted the island in Chicory - is this a dulux colour also?

    Hi, yes the paint is a matt finish - this is a look very in keeping with a traditional shaker style kitchen.

6. Consider shadows When a recessed downlight is placed over the space between a kitchen bench and the island, where will it cast shadows when you are standing at the range hood? Too often, fixtures are installed in the wrong place because ceiling geometry is considered more important than what you are doing with the chef’s knife.

Amanda Pollard added this to Cooking With Colour: What Shade Suits Your Kitchen Cabinets?5 June 2017

Opt for timeless greyA classic choice for your kitchen cabinets is a paler shade of grey. A colour like this is also a great option if you don’t want to overwhelm a space, but crave something more inviting than brilliant white. If you’re worried it might feel bland, layer up different greys as they’ve done here. The designers chose a very pale hue for the outer cabinets and a slightly darker one for the island, which gives an added depth to the room.

9. Storage in every cornerA space where it is easy to store and find things was the most important consideration to 73 per cent of Australian homeowners in Houzz’s 2015 kitchen survey. It’s no surprise then that this kitchen with – get ready for it – floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, under-bench cupboards, open shelving and an island with closed and open storage, came in at number two on the most-saved kitchens for 2016 list.

Like the island bench but not the marble top. Would prefer a white marble
