“What is the most popular Farrow & Ball colour for solid oak kitchen cabinets?” Question of the Week 14.02.16
“What is the most popular Farrow & Ball colour for solid oak kitchen cabinets?”
This week’s ‘Question of the Week’ comes to us from Lauren in Hereford. She is about to start refurbishing her kitchen, and wants to know what colours we recommend for painting doors on solid oak kitchen cabinets.
“I’m hoping to rejuvenate my tired kitchen by replacing the doors and worktops and giving it a lick of paint. The Farrow & Ball colours in your collection are absolutely fabulous but I’m struggling to decide which to go for. Could you help by giving me an indication of which colours you feel would go best with solid wood worktops?”
We are excited to hear that you are about to embark on a journey of kitchen rejuvenation, and think you are most certainly going about it the right way in choosing wooden worktops and our superb solid oak kitchen doors.
Where colours are concerned, there are a wide variety of shades from Farrow & Ball that we think are perfectly suited to our oak frontals, which are split into three distinct categories.
Our ‘Pastels’ range is a selection of the most popular light shades for whole kitchens. From whites to creams and cool turquoises and greens, this bright line-up features some of Farrow & Ball’s most popular colours, all of which look fantastic on cabinet doors alongside oak, walnut and the darker timbers in our collection of solid wood worktops.
If you are looking for a colour with a little more impact, then take a closer look at our ‘Accents’ collection. This selection of cool Farrow & Ball colours is made up of a variety of blue, grey and green hues that can either be used as a standalone colour in the kitchen, or equally can be used to complement the neutrals in our ‘Pastels’ range.
If you are not afraid to experiment with bolder hues, our ‘Strong Accents’ range can add a real splash of colour. These strong shades by Farrow & Ball are daring choices for solid wood kitchens that can look truly stunning alongside our wooden worktops. Consider the shade Pitch Black with maple worktops to create a high-contrast contemporary kitchen look, or Red Earth alongside zebrano worktops for an incredibly snazzy combo.
Over the last year, kitchen fashions have leaned heavily on the inclusion of greys alongside bright whites; therefore, if you are looking for a recommendation, we would suggest creating an elegant yet modern look by opting for black American walnut worktops with a pairing of Plummett (or Parma Gray) and All White.
