Not that the previous steps weren’t exciting, but now comes the real exciting part! Kicking-off your style with fantastic colour choices for your built-in kitchen cupboards! There are many options available to you at this stage; either you go minimalist, trendy, modern or classic. Currently, two-toned kitchens and unexpected colour combinations are very on trend. The more popular alternative is a timeless kitchen with pops of colour brought in with decor pieces that can be easily swapped out as trends change. Our UCAN catalogue, custom kitchen gallery, UV colour and Melawood colour swatches are all great places to start for colour inspiration.
- Kitchen Cabinets
Next up, cabinetry! This means choosing door styles and handles for your kitchen cabinets to complete the style you are going for. You can ask your UCAN support team to go through our door styles with you. You can find our selection of door handles on our website.
Exactly like the cabinet colour, two-toned worktops are very much the “in thing”, also on the list of trends is marble. Marble may be a trend currently, but it is also a classic and is a good way to future-proof your kitchen. You don’t want to choose something that will go out of date in a hurry. Chat to our support team about the countertop options available to you, a selection of options are featured in our catalogue.
