Selecting kitchen colour and going slowly mad!..

Given: a large kitchen-diner, 4mx8m (L-shaped room).  Large bifold patio doors (5m wide). U-shaped kitchen layout (need lots of space inside U).

Floor - Porcelanosa Delaware Nogal (non-negotiable at this stage).

 

Choices: a very light grey colour ("Borrowed light") / a bold dark ("Carbon") / a mellow pinkish ("Calamine"). 

They say rule of thumb is dark floor=light kitchen and vice versa. 

Can you please vote on your preference, thank you.imageproxy.php?img=&key=f5f06bfe2c42e69cimageproxy.php?img=&key=f5f06bfe2c42e69cimageproxy.php?img=&key=f5f06bfe2c42e69c

Have you actually went and looked at these doors and took them away to a tile shop and held them up against various different tiles.

We did just exactly that. More so, i keep carrying all four samples in my work bag and stare at them on the train etc, visualising. ... no effect....

I have voted but the order of the names is different to the order of the images, which could be confusing.

Make sure you see the colour “in the flesh “ natural light etc, we picked colours on an iPad and Gosh it was so different to what we thought (luckily it looks ok 👍).

Sorry, my fault, something went wrong with upload... Calamine is pinkish, borrowed light is blueish.

Have a similar issue with ours! Been to ikea twice to pick and narrowed it down to two; black wood or a grey/green. Difficult!

 

Not much help on those colours. I'd vote Carbon but then again I don't like pink nor can I see the first one (image broken)

I kept the floor and worktops light as the units are dark grey ray 

 

I love the contrast of dark grey units and light coloured worktop. Sadly, have a feel it won't play well against our dark wood floor. But we love the grain of Nogal floor too much to go any lighter  (probably more than kitchen units ::)))

Thank you 

It took 9 months for my wife to decide on a kitchen We looked at so many German kitchens 

They all merged into one 

I run a tiling business But had no input on which tiles we used  Other  than I wanted Italian Porcelain 

If we would of had a contractor building the house He would have walked off several times 😂

Pity it is a German kitchen, not a car.

 

Then you would have a choice of 3 sorts of black, 3 sorts of dark blue, 3 sorts of grey, silver, white, and a red that really would prefer to be a further shade of grey :-0 .

 

(ie the range of colours IBM Sales Executives used to wear for their suits)

 

Mine is dark blue.


And the kitchen is off white semi-gloss slab doors.

 

I think I would take the cue from how much light it will get, and only go dark if it is a very bright room, but not go white either. Colours and textures which show prominently rather than "washed out" on Instagram are on trend. One interpretation of the look is called "One True Hipster" (says my interior designer).
