A monochrome kitchen for maximum effect

There are many advantages to a kitchen in just one colour. It is understated, sophisticated and discreet, blending in with your overall look – which makes it perfect for a kitchen open to the living space. Are you won over? Now you just need to choose the perfect colour.

Monochrome kitchen: white, a bright idea

Timeless, refined and chic... a kitchen in white monochrome from top to bottom easily adapts to all styles of decoration: from an understated and natural Scandinavian kitchen to a minimalist kitchen for guaranteed Zen!


Blending into the white walls, immaculate units are ultra-discreet. Their brightness illuminates dark rooms and has the power to make small areas seem bigger.

A few tips for maximum effect: combining materials will add relief and character to the whiteness. For example, you could mix alpine white lacquered MDF cupboard fronts with a Carrara marble worktop. Or opt for white-painted wooden fronts associated with a ceramic splashback and a light natural stone worktop.

Too monochrome? Do you think it lacks warmth? Add a wooden worktop or some wood in the form of alcoves or shelves.  

The total black look – so chic

A black monochrome kitchen is timeless and creates a prestigious and elegant interior. Whether industrial or contemporary in style, it should preferably flow into large bright spaces as it tends to darken rooms. If your kitchen is small, a glossy finish that reflects light will make it feel more spacious.


A few tips for maximum effect: remember to match your household appliances so that they are also decorative elements.

Too monochrome ? Again, you can warm up the black with a touch of wood. Another good idea: paint the walls of your black monochrome kitchen in a striking colour. The winning combination: exceptionally elegant black and white.

The colourful monochrome kitchen

Is red your favourite colour? Or would you like to adopt an on-trend colour like Fjord blue, rust red or mineral green? Why not? Your colourful monochrome kitchen becomes more original and personalised. But make sure you won’t get tired of it over time, as a fitted kitchen is a long-term investment. Something else to consider – an excessively bold colour can also put off future buyers.


Few tips for maximum effects : Minimise the risks by opting for a neutral or muted colour: beige, anthracite grey, a pastel colour or even petrol blue, in a matt finish.

Too monochrome ? Once again, wood is your best ally when mixing colours and materials as it goes well with all colours, for example the beautiful reed green. Another combination that works well – colour paired with black or white.
