Choosing the right colour scheme to paint your new kitchen can be a tricky and time-consuming decision with so many shades to choose from. A smart option is to choose a kitchen colour scheme that will stand the test of time as it will be favoured by the majority of homeowners and won’t go out of style. Read on to find a classic and timeless colour scheme to suit your taste and your new kitchen.

French Grey
Grey is a great neutral colour to consider as it can have a calming effect on any room and pairs well with most colours and materials. A grey will work well in a French provincial kitchen as the subtle, soft colours highlight the detailed designs and create a sophisticated feel. Soft greys can be used to create a colour scheme that will never date in both modern and traditional style kitchens. Pair grey colour cabinets with a natural granite bench top in varying tones of grey.

White and Timber
The natural elements of timber make it a timeless choice, creating a welcoming and homely feel in your kitchen. Combining timber with a classic white will create a beautiful contrast. For a contemporary style, pair your timber colour with a modern crisp white or for a traditional kitchen, go for a creamier shade. Avoid timber that has a red or dark tone and use a natural light shade for a perfect timeless choice.

Black, White and Grey
A black and white contrasted kitchen is much loved in a modern styled space and an easy scheme to live with. It gives off a smart and sophisticated style from a crisp white to a pure black. Soften the harsh contrast with a hint of grey tones in your kitchen bench top. If you feel black makes too much of an impact, choose glossy finishes to help bounce light around the room however use sparingly in small kitchens.

White on White
White leaves a fresh and clean feel to a kitchen and is a very popular timeless colour scheme as it is easily paired with any kitchen material. Opt for a cooler shade of white with a slight blue undertone for a sophisticated and bright kitchen. Pair white kitchen cabinets with a crisp white based Caesarstone bench top.

Natural Tones
A natural colour palette doesn’t have to be boring; it can add a warm and homely feel to your kitchen. This colour scheme is timeless as the shades aren’t overpowering and works well with modern or traditional style cabinets. Think sandy or creamy shades for your kitchen cabinets complemented with a cream based natural stone or granite bench top.
