If you want to achieve a contemporary look for your kitchen, you need to consider the colours you’re going to use. Whether you want a uniform colour scheme, or a plain backdrop with bursts of colour in the form of kitchen doors, splashbacks, and other accessories, your choice of colour is all important.

In this article, we’re going to discuss some of the most popular colours for contemporary kitchens and how you can incorporate them into your home with made to measure cupboard doors.


A simple white colour scheme has always been a popular choice for any modern kitchen, and with good reason. One look at a white kitchen tells you that this room is kept spotlessly clean.

White cupboard doors lend themselves to a variety of design styles, from the rustic charm of farmhouse kitchens to white gloss kitchen doors that provide an ultra-modern aesthetic.

You can enhance the look further by combining gloss doors with shiny metal fixtures, glass, and tiles or compliment matt doors with natural wood, slate, and stone. Using white as your base colour also makes it easier to add focal details or colour pops.

Much of modern kitchen design looks at bringing the outside in or, rather, incorporating natural elements into your kitchen area. Blue is a great way to do this, as is can be used to give the impression of sea and sky, particularly if combined with other colours, such as yellows and greys. Using warm and comforting blue kitchen doors as your foundation, you can build upon it to produce stunning results.


In much the same way that blue evokes feelings of sea and sky, a splash of green can make your kitchen feel more at one with nature. If you take the plunge and marry green kitchen doors and drawer fronts with wood-effect work tops and real plant life, you can create a thoroughly modern biophilic design for your kitchen.


Black kitchen surfaces have seen a surge in popularity lately, with black granite and marble worktops being a particular favourite in many modern kitchens.

Made to measure cupboard doors with an ultragloss black finish are also much in demand, adding a sleek and stylish touch to your kitchen. Black goes well with most other colours and is a great contrast for metal fixtures and fittings.


Grey is a good choice for a contemporary kitchen. With many homes looking to introduce natural elements into their kitchens, grey kitchen cupboard doors and other surfaces are an efficient and cost-effective way to do so. You get the feel of natural stone or stormy skies, easily set off with wooden fixtures or accessories.
