The Fairlight kitchen door in Graphite
Even if your kitchen is fairly small with not a lot of light, you might still love the idea of using black as a kitchen door colour. Fair enough - black is a great colour for any kitchen as it adds drama and is thoroughly contemporary. However, there is another option - Graphite on the Fairlight kitchen door. Not only will this give you a softer dark grey, it will offer the same drama without taking away the light in the room. Plus the style is modern and well-crafted with plenty of detail.
The Fairlight door has many attractive features - from the vertical grooves that run top to bottom, to the generous framework, this is a Shaker-style door that has been brought into the 21st century. The central panel sits proud of the rest of the door giving it special prominence and the recesses offer light and dark to the entire door. The drawer front, while plainer, is still ideal for creating the look you want.
We think that Graphite is an ideal option for a door like this. The finish ensures that none of the detail is lost, while the darker shade gives impact to your kitchen - highlighting the worktops and the tiles. The colour has an organic feel to it and feels very natural, without any of the harshness that can come from black. You might wonder what colours to combine with this Graphite on the Fairlight door - any light shades will lift it, while brighter colours will increase the sense of scale and drama. Really, the choice is yours.
