Our Shades of Blue

The range of calming and cool blues are available in four different finishes as well and over 50 styles of door.

we have two levels of gloss available with the Ultragloss, as the name suggests, being highest level of sheen. These doors are unlike anything else and seem to have a glass like appearance. Perfect for creating the ultra modern look or high-end designer look. 

Next in line is our high gloss range, this range reduces the reflectiveness while still offering a finish with sheen.

Then it's our matt range, choose this if you are looking for a sophisticated dull finish to create a contemporary looking kitchen.

Finally the Supermatt range is the least reflective finish and offers the deepest colour profile. The finish looks great on a traditional or shaker door in a period home.

Two Tone Blue Kitchens

Blue Kitchen Design Ideas

From calming light tones to energetic turquoise's and mysterious navy's, below we cover a few ideas and how to style a blue themed kitchen.

Blues can create different atmospheres depending on the tone. First decide on what look and feel you are trying to create, its a good idea to make sure this suits your home and the rest of your interior scheme. Then choose a door style, this should build on the colour and compliment the age and type of home you live in. 

Two Tone Blue Kitchens

Blue is a great colour to create a two tone kitchen as either a blue on blue using two different shades, or blue mixed with another more neutral colour.

Blue over Blue

Using two different shades of blue can be a tricky scheme to pull off and may not look right in all homes. The general principle of creating a two tone kitchen uses a darker shade for the base units and a lighter shade for the wall units. However, when creating a blue on blue kitchen it normally looks better if you use the dark shade for all the base, wall and larder units. Then the lighter shade for the kitchen island base units and end panels. 

Blues with Neutrals

Blue and Grey works really well together, use a darker shade of blue such as indigo for the base units and a light grey for the wall units. The darker shade will ground the room while the lighter grey allows the wall units to blend into the d├ęcor and improve the feeling of space. 

If your kitchen incorporates a bank of larder units, a darker blues will look good on these with the kitchen island finished in your second choice colour. Again neutrals such as greys, some creams and whites will create a stunning two tone blue kitchen. The picture below shows an example of this, here a white marble effect is used for the island. To really tie the blue and white theme together the veins in the marble have a tint of blue.

Our showroom has samples of all the different shades and finishes of blue. Why not come visit, meet the designer and try pairing the different doors for yourself. 

Worktops for Blue kitchens

The choice of worktop can dramatically change the look and feel of your kitchen. For example pairing a blue door with a walnut butchers block would create a very traditional look and feel. Whereas the same blue door with a white marble would look contemporary and luxurious. Here is our quick guide on how to pair blue kitchens with worktop colours to create specific styles. Our designer can recreate any of these styles for you to see first hand at your local showroom, which is the best way to choose your combination of door and worktop.

  • Light Stone - Using a light stone such as quartz creates a nice contrast against the blue doors. Lighter blues such as the Zurfiz Metallic will look ultra modern with white stone worktops. Darker blues will look luxurious and rather lavish and look great with gold handles. 
  • Dark Stone - Blacks and Dark Greys work best with a slab style doors in a darker tone of blue to create a minimalist and modern style. When going for this combination make sure you see the combination in the flesh as it can be tricky to accomplish. Worktop thickness can also make or break this look, use ultra compact 12mm or the thin 22mm/28mm laminates with a square edge. Avoid the 38mm post formed worktops as they struggle to create the desired effect. 
  • Wood - Genuine hardwoods and laminate effect worktops work equally well with blue kitchen cabinets. When using real hardwood bear in mind the finish may alter depending on what treatment/stain you use. Osmo oils are well regarded and offer a permanent wet look with the added benefit of protecting your work surfaces from water ingress. If you are using a laminate benchtops with a natural wood pattern, a thickness of 28mm tends to look better than the thicker and cheaper 38mm. Lighter woods will suit modern homes and a little Scandi. Darker woods like walnut will suit traditional settings and period homes. Oak will look great in both settings while leaving the door and other accessories to set the scene of the space.  

Styling a Blue Kitchen

Here we look at colours for the finishing touches like handles, sinks, taps and appliances.

Gold

Using gold with darker tones and navy blues can create a very grand feeling kitchen that looks more expensive than it actually is. The shine of gold stands out against the dark background and is therefore suited to detailed components. For maximum effect choose handles that include some knurling and a tap that exudes style.

Brass

Brass handles and taps are trending at the moment and manufacturers are working this colour into their ranges as the trend grows. However, it may be difficult to find smaller accessories such as kettles and receptacles in the same shade to build on this theme. Brass taps and handles paired with a matt dark blue kitchen looks stunning and particularly suits period homes. When choosing ovens, coffee machines and other appliances I would recommend a matt black and avoid stainless steel where possible.

Black

Black accessories in a blue kitchen offers a more subdued feeling and sways to a minimalist or European style. Using slender handles will hark to the minimalist style, while chunky handles can look industrial. Black appliances almost blend in to the darker matt blue doors and looks very sleek. Manufacturers of appliances, taps, handles and other hardware have expanded their matt black offerings in recent years which makes it easy to create this look. 

Copper

Although copper is no longer in vogue it still looks great with an indigo blue kitchen when use for the handles and small accessories around the room. Copper also suits the light greys and can be used effectively in two tone blue and grey kitchens. Think about what kettle, toaster and other accessories will be on show and what colour these will be before you commit to copper for taps, sinks and handles.

Stainless

Stainless steel creates a strong contrast against the darker blues and blends well with lighter tones such as our metallic and denim blue colours. There is no shortage of appliances, hardware or accessories in stainless as it has been the staple material of manufacturers for years. If you love this look it will be easy to create and is a safe choice.  

White

White is a great colour when used for Belfast sinks and an off white for decoration or tiling should work fine. But, take care when choosing for features like handles, appliances or sinks.
