A kitchen renovation represents a great investment into your property, one that should not require regular updating in terms of fixed elements such as cabinetry and benchtops. These items should ideally be selected with their longevity in mind as they can be quite the costly nuisance to replace later on down the track when interior design trends evolve. Selecting a timeless kitchen colour scheme will ensure your new design truly stands the test of time while also allowing you the creative freedom of using more vibrant patterns and colours in your tiled splashback, accessories and decorative items.
We’ve compiled our top picks in timeless kitchen colour palettes to help narrow down your choices, from crisp whites and bold blacks, to warm grey tones and luxurious materials.
White on White
A classic kitchen colour scheme, sticking to a traditional white on white colour palette will ensure your home is always on trend! Simple, clean and crisp, an elegant white kitchen offers a perfect neutral canvas for your selected accessories and décor which can be easily interchanged as seasons and decorating trends change and evolve over time.
Our Armadale kitchen renovation features a crisp and warm white on white colour palette that uses a combination of two pack kitchen cabinetry, Caesarstone’s stunning composite stone benchtop in Pure White™ 1141, paired with a natural marble countertop on the feature island bench.
Black & White
Contrast your bright white kitchen cabinetry finishes with deeper, bold black features to create a classic and dramatic look in your home. A black and white kitchen colour scheme creates an ultra-modern look that will not age as interior design styles change through the years and once again, makes for a perfect neutral backdrop that allows you to experiment with different colours and patterns in your decorative kitchen accessories and splashback.
This Brighton kitchen renovation combines the home’s period style features with a sleek and timeless modern kitchen design. Black accent pieces contrast the rustic timber flooring and warm white kitchen cabinetry, tying the open plan design with the dining and living areas for a continuous look throughout the home.
Warm Greys & Neutral Tones
Grey shades present an excellent middle ground between bright whites and bold black tones in the home, creating a soft and dignified style. You will find both warmer and cooler grey tones available in kitchen cabinetry and benchtops, each providing their own unique characteristics and style to your home’s colour palette. Including grey in your new kitchen as a neutral tone, you are once again free to experiment with different colour combinations in your splashback, feature décor and accessories while also allowing the use of luxurious materials such as marbles, timber, glass and even stainless steel, each of which will look right at home in a soft grey colour scheme.
Our Fitzroy kitchen renovation showcases a modern twist on the traditional Hamptons kitchen style with a two toned colour scheme. Deep grey coloured cabinets contrast the soft white base cabinetry and the entire look is tied together with a statement central island, adorned with luxurious glass mosaic tiles.
Natural Materials: Luxurious Natural Stone & Timber Tones
Combine natural materials with neutral tones to create a design that will truly stand the test of time while also allowing for creativity in your use of texture and pattern. Natural stones such as marble and granite have been used in architecture for thousands of years and although these finishes do experience regular resurgences of popularity, they will always remain in style thanks to their elegant, natural beauty and ability to complement every home’s interior style.
Pair natural stone with traditional timber finishes for a stylish and modern look in the home that embraces the organic textures of natural materials. Timber cabinetry solutions are available in every finish, from ultra-realistic textured timber laminate and vinyl wrap products, to authentic timber veneers and solid timber doors available in a wide variety of selected species, grains, varnishes and sheen levels.
Our stylish Hawthorn kitchen renovation includes feature timber cabinetry, adding a layer of warmth and texture to this sleek, contemporary home design while also creating depth and interest as the material contrasts the modern white cabinets and benchtop.
Selecting a rich, elegant and timeless kitchen colour scheme will ensure the longevity of your overall design. As demonstrated in these modern examples, stylish neutral tones and rich materials are key in creating a luscious combination that will truly stand the test of time in your home. Our experienced design team at Perini Renovations can guide you through the process of creating the perfect timeless kitchen colour palette for a design that will be enjoyed for many years to come!
