Pale blue kitchen ideas for a stylish and calming space

Right when you thought it might be over for bold blue units, here comes the reign of pale blue kitchen designs. From oozing a sense of tranquillity to promoting a state of calmness and relaxation, pale blue has always been a go-to shade for bedrooms and bathrooms, so why not go all-out on this soft shade in our kitchens, too? 

With Dulux’s Colour of the Year 2022 Bright Skies, an airy and bright blue, being announced, everywhere you look you might spot appliances in this calming shade, along with bar stools, lighting, worktops and splashbacks, plus décor. But how about reviving your kitchen with pale blue units instead?

Love blue tones but don’t want to commit? Then, add a pop of colour through your kitchen island. For example, the kitchen units in this design by Christopher Peters are painted in Farrow & Ball‘s Purbeck Stone and the walls in Ammonite to create a pared-back scheme and not take away from the statement island.
Mix and match neutral tones with pale blue shades to add warmth and interest to your scheme. Pair your units with the Soft Concrete surface, from £400 per sq m, CRL Quartz, which is versatile and durable, perfect if you love cooking and baking, especially this time of the year.
