Behold, the kitchen that converted me to coloured kitchens

Even though they’re a bit boring I’ve always been a white kitchen girl, mainly because I think 99.9% of coloured kitchens are garish and I find wood cupboard doors oppressive.

However, I now can’t imagine a more beautiful kitchen than this one…

I once styled a kitchen similar to this for a magazine where the clever homeowners had installed cheap IKEA carcasses then had a carpenter make doors from MDF, which they painted. It’s a great idea because it’s a really inexpensive way to get a kitchen that looks bespoke and you can have whatever paint colour and finish (flat matte please) you like. This eau de nil teamed with white marble is just gorgeous, don’t you think?

    ooh that is a beauty. Close enough to white to be classic but love the wood elements and that beautiful colour on the doors. Great tip for when I one day have a kitchen of my own.

    would anyone know how to achieve this – presumably you can buy an ikea or howdens carcass, but where do you find the doors or a carpenter to spray paint them? any ideas

      Any carpenter should be able to cut pieces of MDF to size for the doors – ask for recommendations locally. I just Googled ‘painter for kitchen doors’ and a few specialist firms came up so you could see if any of them are local to you.
