Chic, elegant and sophisticated, cream kitchens are a versatile option
Cream gloss kitchen ideas
Cream gloss cabinets are ideal for reflecting light round the space, while also adding a highly contemporary feel. Go for a handleless design and you’ll ramp up the sleek, streamline effect.
If you have the space, team with a central island for a sociable feel, and don’t be afraid to mix cabinetry colours. That’s the magic of cream units; they are extremely versatile and will easily mix with other finishes, such as graphite grey.
Modern kitchen ideas cream gloss
If you’re planning a long bank of floor-to-ceiling cabinets along one side of the kitchen, you’ll want to avoid creating an enclosed, oppressive space. Sleek glossy cream cupboards are a good choice for a big expanse as they will help retain a light and bright feel.
Team with a reflective worktop and a light floor surface to continue the sense of the space, while stainless steel appliances will also help to throw back the light and make the room feel larger.
Cream and grey kitchen ideas
Cream and grey are both popular colours for kitchens as they are calm, laidback and easy to live with, so mixing the two tones in one scheme is a clever combination that will win double style points.
Opt for timeless cream shaker cupboards and marry with on-trend grey metro tiles for an interesting splash back that will make a focal point in the neutral space.
Cream country kitchen ideas
Shaker style units are synonymous with classic country kitchens. To give this traditional look a modern twist, lean towards the warmer end of the cream colour palette and choose an organic stone finish for the cabinets.
Mix with rich, timber worktops, natural textures and earthy tiles and you’ll have a welcoming, relaxed kitchen that’s bang on trend.
