Have the painted kitchen of your dreams with Magnet’s new colour service

Who knew it could be so easy… or affordable for that matter?

When it comes to off-the-peg kitchens, one look doesn’t always fit all. The new Magnet Create range gives you the luxury of a personalised kitchen without the eye-watering budget. With 20 paint-to-order options, two styles of door and a range of handles and worktops, you can put your own spin on the brand’s ever-popular Dunham and Soho ranges.

When it comes to colour in the kitchen, we’re all about green. Must-have shades for 2019 include olive, seagrass and teal, but our favourite has to be Forest Walk, reminiscent of rich jewel tones. For a look that oozes industrial chic, match with gold accents and white worktops – they offset heavier hues perfectly by bouncing light around the room, too.

Pass the Merlot is a stunning deep red shade that epitomises cosy evenings in (with or without it’s namesake). It makes a statement of a stylish kitchen island – particularly when other worktops sport a neutral grey, such as Truffle Oil.

Naturally modern in style, this colour combo can be made wonderfully homely simply by adding in a few wooden accents – think tables, stools or even just a few cleverly placed chopping boards. Easy.

Love a bit of drama? Matt black is the way to go – Charcoal, to be precise. In fact, why not go the whole hog and opt for double wow-factor with matching black worktops, too. Aside from being on-trend and sleekly sophisticated, they hide scuffs and scrapes – great if you’re a bit of a Calamity Jane in the kitchen (ahem, me).

It also provides a neutral backdrop for you to incorporate your own personal touches, whether it be pretty potted herbs or cool kitchen utensils.

If a softer take is more your style, there’s plenty of pastels to choose from, too. Shades include Lilac Blossom, a pretty lavender and Rose Bowl, a soothing blush pink. Both look lovely matched with Cashmere Sweater, an understated grey that compliments just about everything.
