A pink kitchen may seem like a bold choice, but a soft, gentle shade like our TrueMatt Dusky Pink will give your cooking space a warm, welcoming look. Here we show you how to use pink to breathe new life into your kitchen.
Rustic pink kitchens
Using woodgrain flooring and stone worktops alongside your TrueMatt Dusky Pink doors will give your kitchen a cosy, country-cottage look. Keep wall colours pale – white, cream or ivory will all add light and let your soft pink doors be the room’s focal point. A classic door design like the Amberley (above) or the Storrington is what you’re looking for when it comes to choosing a door style.
Minimalist pink kitchens
Keep it simple with a plain slab door like the Lewes. Square-edged slab doors give your kitchen a crisp, minimalist feel, but the pink hue will soften the look a little and add some warmth. Add freshness by choosing cool neutral colours for walls, and marble-effect worktops in white or pale grey. Sleek bar handles in chrome or a matt metallic finish will complete the chic, pared-down look.
Classic pink kitchens
Shaker doors are one of the most popular kitchen door designs, and the way they balance a look of traditional craftsmanship with crisp, understated style makes them utterly timeless. For a kitchen revamp that won’t date, you won’t go wrong with a Shaker style like the Arlington. Dusky Pink brings the doors right up-to-date. You’ve got plenty of freedom when it comes to choosing colours and materials for worktops and flooring – solid wood worktops in pale woodgrain will look beautiful. Alternatively, granite or stone-effect work surfaces will give you solid, elegant spaces to cook up a storm.
Accessories for pink doors
You might be surprised to hear that lots of colours go with Dusky Pink. For a thoroughly modern finish, consider handles and taps in warm-toned metals like copper or brass. They’ll really gleam against the soft pink doors, enhancing that sense of cosiness. It’s always lovely to have greenery in the kitchen too, so scatter small potted plants and succulents around the room to give your cooking space a fresh feel.
