Over the last two years deep, bold shades of teal and blue have been on trend when it comes to kitchen and bath cabinetry. It seems that as technology advances there has become a strong desire to reconnect with nature.
These greenish, bluish hues have become popular in home décor simply because at the end of the day, as we escape the concrete jungle, we wish for our homes to be a sanctuary. There is comfort in using this colour palette in our homes as it allows us to bring the outside in.
Now all shades of blue are welcome but the hottest shade when it comes to cabinetry is Navy. Why Navy? Well it is dark enough to stand as a neutral yet still reads as a dramatic “colour”. Today I want to introduce you to Kitchen Craft’s version of Navy – Gunmetal Blue. This rich paint finish provides great design flexibility!
Gunmetal Blue can easily set the drama when used as a singular colour for your cabinets or can used to punctuate certain work zones within your kitchen such as your island.
No matter what your preferred design style is Gunmetal Blue when applied to the right door profile and paired with the right complimentary colours has the ability to adapt to any of these four trending styles below!
Nod to Nautical
This colour palette takes sea side escapes to the next level. Gunmetal Blue is featured here on the flat yet sleek look of the Summit cabinet door style, which is an excellent grounding colour for base cabinets. For wall cabinets, white Salem Shaker cabinets would not only provide a nice contrast, but would make the space feel light and breezy. To add an element of the unexpected, might we suggest Contempra Pier. This door finish provides tactile texture reminiscent of driftwood or of an aged family dock.
Back to Basics
The fashionable farmhouse look continues to evolve to a new, larger scale. It’s about cozy yet open interiors with a mix of modern design. The warm nature-based feel of the Summit Bamboo door style when paired with the stately look of Gunmetal Blue on Asher, would showcase your rural roots in a chic yet casual way.
Suburban Rustic is a design trend that embraces the reutilization of old farm or factory equipment into new furniture and décor, evoking a sense of heritage. Gunmetal blue’s rich saturation pairs well with the deep toned leather feel of the Sienna finish. This colour palette brings a welcoming feel to any open concept home.
Classic with a Twist
The modernization of the classics allows homeowners and designers to take elements of traditional styles by presenting them in a less cluttered, more simplified way. The colour in which these elements are protrayed also has an impact. Gunmetal Blue featured here on Paxon, transforms an otherwise traditional looking door style into a relevant look to suit contemporary living.
As you can see, the richness of the Gunmetal Blue finish is versatile enough to meet all design trends and compliment all lifestyles. Visit your Kitchen Craft Retail Store today and see how Gunmetal Blue can easily “set the tone” in your ideal kitchen or bath.
