Go dark – Go bold


Although we love white gloss kitchens (they’re so practical) we’re very excited to see that dark kitchens are continuing to grow in popularity. So, if you are considering a redesign and wanting a more dramatic kitchen with bold dark colours in either gloss, matt or silk finishes we have a few of our favourites below.

Moody blue

Go for a blue hue, but make sure it’s got a deep, navy tone. This kitchen looks smart and sophisticated, with a clean and functional appearance and is shown here in the next125 NX501 range with a gloss door you really get a mirror effect finish that oozes quality.


Producing a seating area on the island in a timber finish is a design aspect we really love at Studio 35 and this will be shown in some of the following options too…


Themes on grey

A mid-toned grey is a great option, and if you have fun designing your kitchen you’ll definitely have fun in your kitchen. Shown here with a combination of accent colours, grey is the perfect choice to mix and match. Using a darker grey wall against a mid-grey cabinet adds depth to the room but does not over power the setting. We have a diverse array of colours and textures shown here in this kitchen but we really feel the energy that this gives and believe this is a perfect kitchen for the young (and young at heart) that will bring a smile to your face for years to come.


Back to black

This strong cabinetry colour is dark, moody and oh-so trendy. Shown here in a Lava Black finish which is an ‘off-black’ in a satin effect with Georgian bar glazed units you really do get an elegant feel from this kitchen. The white tiled wall adds contrast, as does the marble effect laminate worktops and both add a classical touch to this kitchen. Again, can you spot the introduction of a little timber that both contrasts and highlights the dark cabinets.



A real retro choice of colour, this bronze kitchen is pure class with a glass fronted door shown here with a matt finish. Using tip-on door technology the clean lines are enhanced with the lack of handles. A real winner for any open plan kitchen dinning environment.




Dark concrete effect ceramic cabinets

Using a different material such as ceramic in a dark finish such as the next125 NX950 kitchen range shown below in ‘ceramic graphite’ really adds something different to your kitchen. Produced with ceramic doors the texture and feel really oozes elegance and sophistication. Clever use of timber units matching the quirky island feature with ceramic worktop really ties all aspects of this kitchen together. Really is one of our favourites here at Studio 35.
