Modern Colour Scheme
The essence of a modern kitchen is to think outside of the box. Remove the old, traditional colour schemes such as oak or pine doors and instead look to other colours.
High gloss kitchen doors come in many colour schemes that bring a certain brightness to the room while our handleless high gloss range has ten different shades available which each adds a modern edge to the room.
