Bringing colour to your kitchen: How to make your plan work

MAT LACQUER CONCEPT

Colours reflect trends, moods and preferences, flatter us or make us look pale. In furniture, colours are essential to making us feel comfortable. But frequently people don’t dare to add a splash of colour. They worry that they will get tired of the colour scheme they chose for their kitchen. Nolte Küchen addresses this worry with its mat lacquer concept: This concept lets you combine your favourite colours stylishly without making clashing missteps. Anything you like and anything that expresses your personality is possible. Colour gives a room structure and will turn your kitchen into a personal statement. Beige and grey are the trendy alternative to white. They promise elegance, staying power and are easy to combine.

19 harmonising colours

But which colours really match? Nolte Küchen wanted to take that concern off our customers’ hands, so we developed our mat lacquer concept: 19 natural, matching colours that can be combined in any way. The result is always different, but always creates a harmonious design.

Any style at all

Whether you’re going for something minimalist, straight-lined, classic, with a subtle frame or playful – everything is possible. Our 19 colours and a variety of combinations are available for many fronts. Even handleless kitchens fit into this concept, down to the smallest detail: Design bases, side panels, recess panelling and even walls in matching colours!

Any style at all

Beautiful and effective

As is often true in life: Less is more! In general, you should combine at most two hues. We also recommend using materials like wood, metal or stone for your worktop or splashback as a connecting element. It is important to avoid using colours randomly and instead employ them systematically. Select a base colour, then add eye catchers. Colours also allow you to visually divide a room into different areas. This is, for instance, helpful for open-plan designs. Don't forget to include carpets, curtains, seating furniture and decoration in your plan. If you want to make very sure that everything matches, it is often helpful to create a “moodboard” from colour and material samples to get a preview of the final result. This will make sure your plan works! We have collected some of our favourite combinations for you. Enjoy!

Contrasts for a modern look

The use of colours and materials requires careful planning. In this design, genuine wood creates a background for the front CARISMA LACK in deep blue soft mat. The recess panelling is a true eye catcher.

Elegance from the heart of Turin

The newest addition to the mat lacquer concept is the front TORINO LACK, an essential component of the style family “New classical design”.

Colour defines space

This freely designed shelf in henna red defines the transition to the living room where the colour is reflected in the carpet and couch. This is an excellent example of how matching panels and plinths can be used to adapt colours to their environment.
