Using red kitchen cabinets in a contemporary kitchen

The white kitchen suite is still the most popular option for homeowners and property developers across the UK. But other alternatives are becoming increasingly compelling. From blues and greys, even black, kitchen cabinets across the colour spectrum have been shown to suit a range of contemporary kitchens. This includes red. So, could red suit your kitchen? Here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to using red kitchen cabinets in a contemporary kitchen.

Using red kitchen cabinets in a contemporary kitchen

To get the most out of red kitchen cabinets, there are some things you should consider. These include:

  • The finish- glossy or matt, red kitchen cabinets can be effective. But for a deep, dark red, you might want to opt for a gloss finish that will help to add light to the room
  • The worktops- pairing your cabinets to the most suitable work-surface is important. And for red cabinets, in a contemporary kitchen, you might want to choose a plain, light colour to act as a blank canvas, drawing attention to the cabinets instead. A pale coloured Corian or Quartz could be a good option, but you should probably avoid dark hardwood.
  • The tiles- for a white kitchen suite, the cabinets blend into the background of the room, and allow the tiles and accent colours to create features. But in a kitchen using red cabinets, the opposite is true. You should choose tiles and floor options that create a blank canvas, using pale or neutral colours. This will allow your red cabinets to stand out, without being overwhelming.
