Especially when paired with chrome and greys, to really help the purple pop. This means that if you want a contemporary kitchen, you should consider deep, royal purples for your kitchen cabinets.


Across the range of kitchen styles, the deep, rich reds are perfect for all kitchen themes. Deep reds look fantastic either in a matt finish, or a high gloss. They also look incredible when paired with porcelain stone effect tiles, either for the floors or walls.
