One of the most important decisions you will have to make when deciding on your kitchen décor is the colour of your kitchen units and kitchen doors. These are bound to make up a big part of your kitchen’s colour scheme, so it is important that you get it right. We’re sure you have already looked online for some inspiration, or even already taken a look through the extensive range at Kitchen Warehouse to see if any immediately take your eye.

But are you finding it all a bit overwhelming? We’re here to help you whittle down the many choices you’re presented with, so you can find the perfect colour for your kitchen.

Consider the colour of your walls, floor and ceiling

Although your kitchen units and doors will be your main consideration here, it is important to not disregard the colour of your walls, floor, and ceiling, as you would in any other room of the house. Your walls may be tiled or painted in a colour that doesn’t complement the shade of your new kitchen cupboards. So, it may be necessary to switch up the design before the installation.

Alternatively, you can use this to your advantage and pick a hue that fits right in with your existing colour. No matter the shade of your walls, floor or ceiling, we at Kitchen Warehouse can provide units and doors that complement that colour and complete your ultimate kitchen look. Whether that be a white high gloss, or a darker graphite grey shaker, we are sure we have a kitchen door colour for you!

Does the colour of your appliances fit?

As well as eyeing up the colour of your existing walls, floor and ceiling, it is important to take note of any appliances you have too. Usually, modern kitchen appliances are metallic silver or black.. However, if you’d like a more “retro” looking room, you may want your appliances to be of a more outlandish shade, that contrasts nicely with the colour of your kitchen doors.

Either way, it is important to think about the colour of your existing appliances, or the appliances you are interested in if creating a whole new kitchen. This will allow you to narrow down your choices to a selection that you will be happy with, so you can browse the extensive range at Kitchen Warehouse with a clear idea in mind.

Do you feel comfortable in the room?

This is arguably the most important factor to consider when choosing new kitchen units and doors. After all, you will want to spend as much time as possible in your new kitchen, and you’ve likely spent a pretty penny upgrading it too! To feel comfortable in your kitchen, you will want to pick a shade of kitchen door that you’ll be happy with for years to come.

Even if that means not considering your existing walls and appliances and going for something totally unique! Those are there as a guideline, but as long as you feel happy with your surroundings then who are we to tell you what you can and can’t include in your dream kitchen? Be sure to check out the full range of kitchen cupboards on-site, and we’re sure you’ll find one you like!
