Get The Look: Blue and White Kitchens

From the deepest navy to the boldest royals, indigo blue has taken over our interiors in the last year. And for good reason – this beautiful hue works perfectly with warmer or cooler tones, pairs masterfully with the ‘neutral of the decade’, grey, and pops when placed with monochromes. It’s a rich colour that reminds us of the saturated skies and seas of warmer climates and looks to be going strong again this summer.

I’ve been thinking for a while about my own kitchen – it’s mostly white with touches of colour but painting the cabinets in a deep navy blue has been on my radar for a while. And this combination of deep blue and white in a kitchen has got me thinking about how gorgeous it is in this setting so I thought today I could share some inspiration for using deep indigo in your own kitchen and the tiles that make this colour pop.

This beautiful kitchen island is painted in a navy blue whilst the other cabinetry is kept pale and interesting in a creamy grey. The soft movement in the floor tiles compliments this look without distracting from the clean traditional lines.

You can create a similar look with our Marakesh Cream Floor tiles:

Our next inspiration kitchen combines marble worktops with the always classic metro tile to keep things crisp and inviting.

The metro tile is a total classic and so fits any kitchen style. Our white metro brick tile would perfectly suit the beautiful blue cabinetry and high end look of marble – without the high end price tag!

Our next kitchen has the same colour scheme again but with a totally different look. The movement in the marble sets off the deep – nearly black – blue of the cabinetry.

You can get this look without the cost and pain of sourcing a single slab of marble with much easier to installΒ Calacatta Marble Tiles.

And finally, this ergonomic kitchen design with an eye-catching splashback would be perfect for a smaller space. Open cabinets painted out in navy blue makes pretty storage pieces pop.


You can again achieve this look for less with our Bengal Winter Mosaic Tile. The soft browns would work beautifully with wood accents.

Of course, this doesn’t mean you always have to go with dark blue cabinets! You can also achieve some fabulous looks by using navy blue tiles on your walls. Here are a few of my favourites to bring this fabulous trendy colour to your kitchen:
