Luna Matt Midnight

Never considered blue for your kitchen? You should.

Blue is 2018’s most coveted kitchen shade, offering a fresh alternative to neutral kitchens and a versatile palette of hues from subtle duck egg right through to daring midnight blue.

So to help you imagine how this striking shade could look in your kitchen, here are four very different ways to style a blue kitchen to make it your own.


If you dream of a kitchen that really stands out from the crowd, there’s no better choice than deep midnight hues. Dark kitchens immediately draw the eye and create a sense of drama, particularly when contrasted with solid marble worktops in icy white. Finish this luxurious yet daring look with brushed steel handles, classic wooden kitchen furniture and eye-catching pendant lighting or even a statement cooker hood.


Prefer a lighter touch? Pastel blue shades offer a modern alternative to white and cream shades and are perfect for making a compact kitchen feel light and airy. Continue with the pastel theme by pairing a sky blue kitchen with subtle grey terrazzo worktops and decorative accessories in complementary shades of petal pink, butter yellow or mint green.


If you think blue won’t work in a traditional country kitchen then think again. Classic shaker style cabinets in a timeless shade of midnight blue look particularly beautiful against a backdrop of dark wooden beams and exposed brick work. Accentuate the deep blue shade further with solid wood worktops and cabinet handles in rich copper or antique gold.


Take inspiration from Nordic style icons by pairing soothing blue lower kitchen cabinets with crisp white upper cabinets, framed against pale wood worktops for a sense of understated chic. Complete the look with kitchen accessories in varying shades of blue, tiled splashbacks and statement geometric lighting.
