Embrace the dark kitchen trend with the Studio Collection

Dark colours are a key trend for the 2024 luxury kitchen room – and our modular Studio collection is perfectly pitched to embrace this style mood. Shades such as black, graphite, grey and indigo are strikingly versatile for upmarket kitchen designs, big or small. Dark colours are snug and chic in a compact kitchen while deeper shades can break up combined kitchen dining room ideas and make a statement. This is a classic look and will remain effortlessly timeless year after year. So, are you ready to add depth and drama to luxury kitchen design? Let Studio’s vast colour palette lead you to the dark side…

Create a modern urban mood

A palette of tonal dark cabinets is slick and supremely modern. Inspired by the dark kitchens on the roundhouse website, the owners wanted a kitchen design with mood and ambience. The end result is so much more thanks to the mix of sleek Studio Graphite Grey doors and Rugged Concrete surfaces. That’s not forgetting the modern kitchen island in Dark Bronze for added architectural flair. This is how to do the dark kitchen trend with serious urban cool.

Elevate with navy and gold

Dark colours work so well on our timeless Studio Classic door too. Fear not if pitch black is too intense for your design tastebuds, Indigo Blue is a great alternative for the look. In this luxury kitchen room dark blue adds an elevated design dimension to the Shaker-style Studio Classic. Located in a side extension, the Indigo Blue kitchen design creates a rich, heritage mood. But it’s also fresh and energetic thanks to the overhead skylights. Warm metallic details and modern kitchen worktops in marble-look quartz make the dark coloured cabinets pop. It’s the ultimate balance of classic style and impactful colour – and we can’t get enough of it.

Try a dark textured finish

There’s a soft, luxurious feel to this kitchen dining design. And it’s all down to the dark smoked textured finish of our Studio Urbo & Metro doors. The dark furniture is packed with texture, tone and warmth, contrasted by the modern brass taps and kitchen lighting ideas. Pale gold and white composite worktops and splashback inject a considered, high end silhouette. The result: luxury contemporary kitchens that combine dark and light elements oh so beautifully.

Refresh classic monochrome

Black and white is a fool proof colour palette for luxurious kitchen design. It’s elegant, striking and the perfect starting point for adding unique touches. For an updated take on classic monochrome, try our Studio Matt Graphite Grey cabinets paired with Light Grey. It’s a softer, more modern alternative and still allows you to zone a luxury kitchen room. The L-shaped timber bar transforms the modern kitchen island into a statement focal point.

Saturate with charcoal

In Smooth Matt Graphite Grey, this Studio kitchen design might just be the ultimate family hub. The dark Urbo & Metro doors are less likely to show up fingerprints and dirty marks for starters. Plus, they’ll provide masses of kitchen cupboard storage for an uncluttered silhouette. At the centre of the luxury big kitchen design is a modern kitchen island, also in bold graphite. Against a backdrop of white walls and blonde herringbone flooring, it’s a colour combination that’s hard to resist.

Is it good to have a dark kitchen?

In charcoal, ink, navy or deep grey, dark kitchens are a good idea for so many reasons. They are super stylish of course. Not only that, dark door fronts can hide knocks, stains and scuffs and create ambience. Dark luxury designer kitchens also look striking against white and provide a good base if you want to bring in accent colours.
