For any kitchen, large or small, choosing the right colour scheme is an important step in the design process. The colour scheme can help establish the style or trend of the kitchen, whether that’s contemporary, chic, traditional or farmhouse. But the colours also bring practical benefits too, like improving the quality of light in a space, and making your kitchen feel larger than it really is. When you have a matt finish kitchen, the colour of your cabinets and work-surfaces will be important, although the colours will work differently than they do with a glossy finish. So which colours should you choose from? Well, here at MLS Kitchens, we are Manchester’s leading kitchen design specialists. And this is our guide to the popular Colour combinations for matt finish contemporary kitchens.

Colour combinations for matt finish contemporary kitchens

In a matt finish kitchen, different colours will work in a different way. For example, white, light colours in a glossy kitchen, will reflect light around the room, helping the space seem larger and brighter than it really is. With a matt finish, you lose this advantage. But it does meant hat any dark colours you use will be bolder and more dramatic. With that in mind, here are some colour combinations that work well in a contemporary kitchen, with a matt finish:

  • White and black
  • Blue and white
  • Red and white

White and black

A popular choice for any type of kitchen, in any style, with any finish, the combination of black and white can be stunning. With a matt finish kitchen, it’s important tto make sure that the cabinets are white. or a light colour, paired with the black worktops. This is because, too much black will make your kitchen look smaller and dreary. Using more white, will help create a visually dramatic and interesting contrast with the black worktops.

Blue and white

Matt blue kitchens are a very ppular choice for many homes and properties. Pair these blue cabinets with a white worktop, or a mottled white worktop, and you will have a kitchen that is both stylish, and full of character.

Red and white

Switch out the blue cabinets for red, and your kitchen will take on a more energized, passionate atmosphere, with a good amount of contrast between the cabinets and the worksurfaces. However, natural timber effect worktops could also work very well in a contemporary kitchen with a matt finish.
