To celebrate the launch of our latest trends range, interiors and renovation lover Eve Gunson (of popular lifestyle blog Dot+Pop) shares her take on our six new colours, and why these shades are oh so trendy!

Why these 6 colours are trending in interior spaces…

Kitchen trends are ever changing, there is always a new colour, a new product, a new design that is taking the interiors world by storm. So how do you keep up to date with what’s new and current in the global design world? Kaboodle kitchen has launched its latest trends range, and it covers everything you need to know for a modern and timeless kitchen design.

Introducing six new colours to its collection of doors and panels, the range features matt black, smoked grey, a rich green, deep navy and two concrete looks.

vivid basil

Bold kitchen colours have made headlines in the interior design world with designers and consumers alike making brave choices for that stand out kitchen. Kaboodle’s vivid basil is a rich green that brings out an eclectic elegance. The perfect choice for those who like bold design, have a passion for striking interiors and want to make a statement. Over the past few months I have seen green pop up in kitchen designs in various shades, from pastel and mint, to neon and forest – it’s a colour that can work in many settings.


Another interior colour that’s making waves is navy – the perfect choice for an elegant but bold look. Kaboodle’s bluepea is a dark and inky navy blue, the perfect alternative to black or charcoal if you are wanting to take a step away from the safety of neutral tones. Team your navy cabinetry with a patterned tile for a modern edge, or keep it minimal with sleek stone-look benchtops. My favourite kitchen look for navy cabinetry is pairing it with a marble bench top and touches of brass, a super luxe look but still very classic overall.

A huge trend that seems to be here to stay is black – and that’s exactly what I’ve chosen for my own new kitchen - I’ve been waiting to design a black kitchen for so long! Black is the perfect choice for those wanting to take their kitchen to the next level and stand out from the crowd, and using a matt black will make even more of a statement. A modern and minimalist option is Kaboodle’s new molasses v - it is the perfect choice for lovers of monochrome design, and is made even more impressive with its anti-fingerprint technology and soft touch matt finish. Forever timeless, black never fails to make a striking statement.

Grey is trending in a huge way … and it looks like it’s here to stay. The great thing about grey is that there are literally 100’s of greys to choose from, which can be great but also daunting.  So if you’re after a modern/industrial feel with a textured and tactile finish that is perfectly on trend, try Kaboodle’s light truffle. This industrial textured look demands attention thanks to its raw finish and modern aesthetic, giving the impression of real concrete. If you feel as though grey could be a little bit too ‘cool’ in tone for you, pair it with natural finishes, such as timber benchtops to warm it up and add a tactile element.

smoked grey

And for those lovers of grey, another trend-driven look is the ever popular ‘Scandi’! Pale grey is classic, refined and super on trend in the kitchen design world. Kaboodle’s smoked grey is versatile, timeless, contemporary but also offers a very sleek finish that can be adjusted to suit your level of ‘scandi’. Go full on scandi vibes with white benchtops and pale white washed floors, or for just a hint use deeper tones with your grey to anchor it and create depth.

dark truffle

Luxury is always trending, especially in the design world. To achieve a luxurious look and feel in the kitchen, try Kaboodle’s new dark truffle, a dark concrete shade complete with a unique textured look. Add a touch of luxury with its smokey velvety undertones and pair it with whites, light timbers, subtle grey or metallic for an especially modern finish. I am a lover of dark cabinetry in the right space – if you are thinking of designing a darker kitchen, ensure you have enough natural light to balance the cabinetry, and ensure that your surrounding features such as wall colour and flooring will complement it.

Impress at home and make a statement in the kitchen with these new, contemporary, design-forward cabinetry shades.  Explore the new range at www.trends.kaboodle.co.nz
