Our take on Dulux Colour of the Year 2021

Ideas & Inspiration, Kitchen colour scheme ideas - 15 Sep 2020

Do you want to be at the forefront of interior design trends in your home? Then why not incorporate the Dulux Colour of the Year.

Dulux colour experts have chosen ‘Brave Ground’ as Dulux Colour of the Year 2021, a warm earthy tone that can be mixed and matched with an array of warm and inspiring colours.

How to combine Dulux's Brave Ground with our colours

At Masterclass Kitchens we believe that a warm colour palette can form a base for so many exciting colour combinations. That’s why in 2019, we launched two new shades to further enhance our warm palettes.

Highland Stone and Farringdon Grey are perfect for anyone wanting to incorporate the next big colour trend for 2021.

Here are some examples of how to use warm neutral colours in your kitchen:

Classic warm grey kitchen with dark tones

Add a dramatic splash of colour to your warm scheme with the rich, dark tones of Oxford Blue. Farringdon Grey creates the perfect base for this Hardwick painted shaker kitchen, while Oxford Blue ensures the kitchen island is centre stage and remains the focal point of the room.

Warming greys with oak finishes

There’s no surprise that our neutral colours, Highland Stone and Farringdon Grey, perfectly complement the warming tones of wood. This kitchen uses the neutral shade of Farringdon Grey to modernise a solid oak kitchen – and we love it!

Modern mix and match with warm tones

We love the individuality that mix and match can bring to a design. This kitchen demonstrates that you can choose three or more colours and finishes to reflect your personality in your home.

Using the warming tones of Highland Stone as the base colour, this kitchen incorporates Autumn Blush, a soft pink hue, and the industrial finish of Copper Oxide to create a modern kitchen you’ll love for years to come.

Sometimes when the colour looks this good, you don’t need to mix and match. We love the simplicity in this elegant shaker kitchen; the neutral colour of Highland Stone creates a warm and inviting space that’s ideal for anyone looking for a contemporary shaker kitchen design.

Mix and match warm greys

Handleless kitchen design is often associated with cooler shades of greys and whites. But, we’ve recently seen a shift in colour trends as more customers are opting for warmer shades in modern design. One reason for this shift is customers want kitchens that are inviting, homely and seamlessly connect into their living spaces, regardless of the kitchen design.
