Is your kitchen looking worn down and lacklustre? We have the solution! Reinvent your kitchen with colour combinations by incorporating different materials and adding texture for dimension in your kitchen. Remember your kitchen does not have to match the rest of the home so get out of your comfort zone with colour. We have paired colours that survive the ever-changing trend cycle to last the test of time. Read ahead for our top colour combination tips.

Colour Combinations:

Blue and Grey

The unique cool grey has hints of blue that make this colour the perfect neutral with a modern vibe. This colour works best on cabinetry for a total kitchen overhaul. Make this colour pop by incorporating copper or brass hardware and a beautiful white subway tile splashback for interesting texture to compliment this blue and grey hue.


Shades of brown, tan and wood bring a sense of warmth to any home. Pair these neutrals with rich wooden floors, a metallic splashback and stunning light fixtures for a striking kitchen. Brown tones are fantastic to match, contrast and coordinate without being overly dramatic which makes it a perfect match for any kitchen.

White and Cool Grey

This mix creates the perfect modern Scandinavian feeling kitchen as this simple palette offers endless styling opportunities that can always easily be mixed with accessories. White and grey transforms the kitchen to a light and bright space with streamlined design such as sleek glass splashbacks for a modern mix.

Red and White

This mix offers a traditional edgy combination that has stood the test of time by combining subtle white with refreshing red. White cabinetry paired with a glossy red splashback is the easiest way to incorporate these hues. If you are feeling adventurous why not try red cabinetry or red accessories to add flare to your white-based kitchen.

Earth Tones

We love the look of earthy tones like beiges, whites, caramels, wood and notes of green that boost the kitchen into a chic abode. Choose cabinetry that is either a dark wooden grain or a light wooden shade to the kitchen for the ultimate start of an earthy tone kitchen. Incorporate open shelving for a bright airy feel; combine with a granite countertop and white or beige splashback to tie the kitchen together. It is the perfect minimalist style that offers practicality.

The one thing we recommend for your kitchen facelift is changing your splashback. It is a focal point that draws attention to anyone who enters the kitchen. Simply swapping splashbacks can create a completely new look and feel for your kitchen.

Harrington Kitchens uses high quality diamond glass splashbacks to make a statement in your custom designed kitchen, ensuring quality…always.
