With blue, you can be as brave or calm as you prefer, compliment with any material to shape the heart of the home with your own personality and needs. In this blog, we look at the ranges of blue you can use depending on the impact you want to achieve, traditional and contemporary styles, and materials that work beautifully together.

Blue can be used for bold or subtle designs. It's works well with a contrast colour, such as porcelain, to create a stunning kitchen. A strong blue against a crisp, sharp, white will establish the feel of fresh and clean as soon as you enter. If you are looking for a softer ambience, use with an off-white or dove grey to establish more warmth.
You can use contrasting colours for any kitchen size and style that you can update to stay on trend for years to come.
Our designers love to use different materials within a kitchen. No only does it create more depth, it establishes a 'mood' - something that is individual to every customer and home. Dark blues with wood, especially in open plan spaces, establish an air of calm and class. Combine darker furniture and window frames with light walls for a room to be proud of.
Consider using the same wood for your carcass and open units to link with the floor leaving the units to be the main feature. This design works beautifully in barn conversions and new builds with sea or countryside views.
Another stunning design when you have space is looking at a contemporary feel where the kitchen encompasses the whole room and can integrate with dining and living. Taking the darkest blue to a slate grey, modern units with matching handles create a strong, industrial ambience, especially when complimented with natural stone floors and metal furniture.
If you like the subway/warehouse style room but want more warmth, look at using woods such as oak, to add more texture and depth to a cool kitchen.
No matter where you live in Devon, a traditional kitchen will look elegant especially when using a French blue hue! When designed correctly, a classical style kitchen is a timeless investment, where subtle changes can have a huge impact. Units, handles and appliances are the focus and using blues as the base colour means you can add accent tones dependent on the trends at the time.
Tiles, flooring and lighting can really make a difference for any kitchen style - if you're looking for extra likes on your Pinterest board, then blue is for you.
In every blog this year we have mentioned the marble effect and we can't talk about it enough! Natural stone, not only is incredibly durable, it's versatility makes it a favourite with designers. No matter the kitchen style, adding natural stone, such as granite, on floors or worktops make this room ooze quality.
If you are looking to use a dark blue on your units, the contrast of a marble effect that's white with blue veins throughout on walls and worktops, creates an opulent, luxurious, ambience that can be enjoyed by family and friends.
