Bold kitchen in Resene colours

Eye catching


Contrasting colours are an ideal way to make a stand-out feature of your kitchen cabinetry, as this project shows.

Designers Melanie Craig and Stacey Anderson of Melanie Craig Design say the kitchen was designed for a family that wanted something a little different.

Resene Fuscous Grey features on the back wall, contrasting with the cabinetry in Resene Black White, and walls painted in Resene Milk White. The dark charcoal also enhances the stainless steel benchtop and strips that wrap around the cabinets, reinforcing the slightly industrial look the owners desired.

Resene recommends Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen Kitchen & Bathroom paint for kitchen walls. This waterborne, low-odour, Environmental Choice-approved paint provides a durable, washable finish. It is formulated with anti-bacterial silver and MoulDefender that gives added protection against bacteria and mould.

For kitchen ceilings, Resene SpaceCote Flat Kitchen & Bathroom is advised, while Resene Lustacryl Kitchen & Bathroom is suggested for the trim and joinery. Both these paints are also formulated with antibacterial silver and MoulDefender.
