Colour experts Pantone have named Classic Blue as their colour of the year for 2020. This shade manages to be both bold and calming, depending on where and how you use it.

Classic Blue is an elegant cobalt shade - less overpowering than navy blue, but with more impact than paler shades. In large kitchens that get plenty of light, choose unit doors and drawer fronts in this colour to create a rich, luxe look. In smaller spaces, add accessories in this bold blue against a palette of soft neutrals for splashes of colour that really catch the eye.

Your blue kitchen

The Legato door in Ultragloss Baltic Blue

Legato Ultragloss Baltic Blue is probably the closest colour match to Pantone's Classic Blue that we offer. This bold, glossy shade will help you create an ultra-modern kitchen that's perfect for entertaining. It will look best in larger spaces, but you can make it work in smaller rooms if you pair it with cool, crisp whites and pale woodgrain furniture. Ultragloss Baltic Blue doors would also look great in bathrooms.
