What might come in second place then? Presumably a lighter, quieter neutral to offset Charcoal and Smoke either side of it? Wrong. The second most-loved kitchen colour is, wait for it, one of our darker greens, Cactus.
Yet another deeper pigment and very much a colour rather than a neutral, Cactus is a colour people gravitate towards because of its earthiness and its ability to make a space feel warm even though it has cool base tones that help it suit contemporary homes too. And it’s not the only green in our top eight kitchen colours of the year chart either. Moss is in at number five. More of a mid-green than dark, if truth be told, but another example of a richer coloured kitchen winning the hearts of homes far and wide.
Surprised at the lack of blue being mentioned when navy is known for being one of the most flattering colours to feature in a home (and a wardrobe)? Rest assured then that our SS16 seasonal shade has made the cut too, despite being archived (more of than in a few paragraphs’ time). Navy is our sixth most popular paint shade for a kitchen, offering up a softer and ever so slightly more traditional alternative to Charcoal.
