Cream might have taken a bit of a back seat in our kitchens these last few years as homeowners favoured brighter whites or bolder greys. But cream gloss kitchens are a great way to give the illusion of space, while bringing in warmer tones. Here, we’ll share 9 cream gloss kitchen ideas that’ll have you going cream in a heartbeat.

9 cream gloss kitchen ideas

Cream gloss kitchens are incredibly versatile and will be equally at home in modern and traditional properties alike. Check out these cream gloss kitchen ideas to see the full scope of what can be achieved when you opt for a cream gloss kitchen.

1. Pair cream gloss kitchens with grey

Grey makes a fantastic contrast to cream gloss kitchen cabinets. Here, the homeowner has gone for charcoal grey kitchen wall tiles, adding texture to the walls while allowing the cream cabinetry to pop. We also love the wood kitchen island, floors and shelving, all working in harmony to create a modern farmhouse look.

2. Opt for handless gloss off-white kitchen doors

These handless off-white kitchen doors bring a sleek and modern look to this kitchen. We particularly love them paired with the charcoal grey island and futuristic ceiling-mounted cooker hood. Together, they remind us of a space ship ready to launch your culinary delights to the next level!

3. Pair with natural wood for a country look

This country-style kitchen is bursting with character. The warm tones of the cream kitchen cabinets are brought out by the wooden kitchen worktop, panelled splashback and beams. Together with the iron door handles, rails and tap, they make for a picture-perfect kitchen that couldn’t be more quaint.

4. Incorporate cream throughout your kitchen

If you’re a fan of the warm and calming effect that cream brings to a room, there’s no need to limit it to your kitchen cabinets alone. This kitchen diner teams off-white kitchen doors with cream painted chairs, table legs, shelves, a cooker hood and even a freestanding fridge! All in all, it’s the ideal peaceful oasis at the heart of the home!

5. Go monochrome with cream

If you love the class of black and white kitchens but you’re after something a little warmer, black and cream is a great shout. Here, the homeowner has combined cream gloss kitchen units with a gloss black worktop and grey feature wall. It’s a modern monochrome look that’s just that little bit more inviting!

6. Give the illusion of space

Dealing with a small kitchen? Using light tones such as cream can be a fantastic way to increase natural light in your kitchen and give the illusion of space – as can opting for gloss over matt. We love how this homeowner has also chosen open shelving and rails for storage as opposed to wall cabinets, helping to keep the space open and bright.

7. Add pops of colour to your cream kitchen

A cream kitchen can be a great neutral base to allow you to be more playful with colours elsewhere. Here, the homeowner has teamed cream gloss kitchen units and worktops with a bright teal accent wall. A doorless wall cabinet with teal tableware and a fun ‘Eat’ sign is the finishing touch.

8. Keep a light colour pallet

This open plan kitchen is almost entirely decorated in shades of cream and off-white. As well as gloss units, we can see magnolia walls, light beige floor tiles and, of course, the off-white frames of the conservatory extension. All in all, it makes the room feel bright and airy, while still maintaining a cosy, homely environment.

9. Make it your own
