Bringing Pantone’s Colour of the Year Into Your Kitchen Design

Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2020, ‘Classic Blue’ is described as calming, with the power to instil confidence and connection. Blue is one of the hottest colours of the year in interior design, with countless kitchens embracing the cool hue in a plethora of ways. It only makes sense, given the social nature of the kitchen, that homeowners are opting for such a shade. Read on for ways you can incorporate Classic Blue into your new kitchen design.


In cabinets

Recent trends have seen kitchen designs ditching traditional tones and taking risks by embracing playful colour palettes in their cabinetry. If you want to brighten up your kitchen but don’t like the thought of a totally nautical space, Classic Blue can be incorporated into just your lower cabinets. Offset the shade with upper cupboards and surfaces in light natural tones like timber or stained white.


Blue decor

Opting for small touches of blue can be just as effective as a total colour palette overhaul. Consider displaying any decorative plates, pots and other accessories like salt and pepper mills to brighten up your kitchen.


Blue awnings

Classic Blue window dressings do double duty: they add a pop of colour to your kitchen design and block out light when you need them to. 


Blue appliances

Small kitchen appliances like espresso machines, toasters and kettles come in a range of colourways, and you’re sure to find one in the hottest shade of 2020. Smeg creates appliances in numerous colours and designs that are sure to breathe life and bring calm into your kitchen. One of the benefits of opting for coloured appliances is if you change the theme of your kitchen, you can always put them in the cupboard out of sight.
