We're having our kitchen started at the weekend. Going from manky green melamine doors with white knobs & country kitchen look, to cool cream gloss. I can't wait!
All of the units will be cream gloss, the worktop will be dark wood, and the cooker & extractor are silver / stainless steel. We need to choose a colour for the glass splashback which will run the length of the kitchen, but as our whole downstairs is open plan it can't be dark as it needs to work with the whole room iyswim?
I know it's hard to say without seeing pictures but do you think a grey would work? The living room is cream and burgandy red.

Hmm, I don't know about grey, do you have links to what you are getting? I think that grey goes more with white and black, that is what I have in my kitchen x

Have you tried this interactive colour checker www.maldonglass.co.uk/kitchen-glass-colour-designer (can you tell I'm bored)
I'm not keen on the grey from that, but it's your kitchen!

Ssh I tried to do that checker but didn't like any of the colours so it was pointless. Maldon are actualy quoting for us.
Fi this is the range, but looking on my PC they look yellow so different computers will show it dfferently

What colour are your walls?
09/01/2013 at 11:39
Burgandy is the main colour, cream on the chimney breasts. The kitchen wall without units is also cream, the rest will be tiled / splashbacked.

That checker has all the hexadecimal colours though - how can you not like any of them?!
09/01/2013 at 11:48
Oh no Fi that's minging.
Ssh I don't have the patience to sit and go through it all. That's what forums are for!

As you know Maldon Glass did my kitchen and they can match any colour from fabric to a B&Q sample (which is what I did, matched to my blind!)
I think Grey will work well, I also think as you are having wood worktops you couldl get away with cream the same as your cabinets for the glass and tiles, then add colour with your acessories

Ha, how rude.
Just go for a cream then. Lol
09/01/2013 at 11:58
Like this but cream, if my rooms flowed like yours do this is what I would do then accessorise to match the main living area

The other option would be to go for clear and pain the wall cream to match your living room or the red of your living room BUT if you canged your living room colour the red may look odd........seeing as it has changed 3 times since I have known you this may be a possibility......

Nina I didn't know they matched the colour, they never said that to us. Your link is taking me to a blue glass?
09/01/2013 at 12:02
Do you have to have a spashback? WHat about tiles? THat is another option
09/01/2013 at 12:07
should have been white!! sorry yes that is how they do it, costs no more and they can match any colour, it's fantastic. so you could get a sample of your white cabinets from B&Q and ask them to match that and have it all cream, with the wood worktops that would look fab. you could then paint in washable paint the colour of your living room around the bit you were going to tile or tile cream there.
We were going to tile but H is now set on the glass.

Glass looks best......but I am bias it's so much easier to clean too and it reflects the light really nice

I am going to have my bathroom done in glass next time too...............
They can also put pictures into the glass, people find images they like, like a new york skyline and have that put in.....
