It’s another age old question that we need to consider when designing your dream kitchen: would you like dark or light cabinets? If you’re struggling to decide, keep reading!

Lighter cabinets give a kitchen a more open and cleaner feel compared to darker cabinets. Darker cabinets can hide the everyday stains and wear and tear more easily which is something to keep in mind if you’re a busy household.

Darker kitchen units are most associated with a more luxurious and formal feel in your home. Lighter cabinets are seen to be more classic and timeless.
