As dark kitchens become increasingly popular, different design trends are beginning to emerge. One such trend involves combining light and dark colours as part of the kitchen design, to create a balance and areas of contrast. But what should you consider when creating this type of kitchen space? Well, here at MLS Kitchens, we are Manchester’s leading kitchen experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about combining dark and light colours in the kitchen.

What are the considerations when combining dark and light colours in the kitchen?

Creating a kitchen with dark cabinets and colours can be a stunning option for both contemporary and traditional design spaces. But too many dark surfaces and colour schemes can be difficult to manage and can overwhelm the space. As a result, balancing dark and light colours in the kitchen can be a good design option to perfect the visual design. But what should you consider when using both dark and light colours in the kitchen? Well, there are several things to consider, including:

  • Using light coloured worktops- light coloured worktops can perfectly balance with darker kitchen cabinets for a brighter touch to your dark kitchen. These worktops will reflect the light, making the space feel larger, and the visual contrast between the light and dark colours will be visually appealing.
  • Creating a lighter feature wall- the colour of the walls should also be taken into account when considering your kitchen colour scheme and a lighter feature wall could be the perfect way to brighten up your dark kitchen space, creating contrast for increased visual impact.
  • Using lighter seating- if you have a breakfast bar or seating area in your kitchen, choosing lighter coloured chairs can be a great way to create an area of visual contrast in the kitchen.
