Well, there's a trick to it. Interior designers and architects select the perfect combinations of stone colour and finish using a tried and tested method. The good news is you can use this technique too!
This guide reveals the five easy to follow steps you can use to create a cohesive kitchen colour palette that you'll love for years to come.
First and foremost, every dream project begins with a vision, so it’s essential to consider the following questions to help shape and guide your design
The main driver to determine how you want your kitchen to look is deciding how you want your kitchen to feel, and particularly, how you want to feel when using the space.
For example, do you want your kitchen to feel light and airy, sophisticated and dramatic, casual and comfortable?
The interior of a home sets a tone; it conveys a mood and creates an atmosphere.

When designing, consider the existing elements of your home. Does your home already reflect a particular style you like? Will the kitchen connect to other spaces and lead the overall style direction for the rest of the house, or will the kitchen work with the home's existing interior style?
Everyone has taste and style preferences, so you may be attracted to one or wish to combine elements of various design styles. Either way, it’s essential to decide early on to make consistent choices throughout your project journey.

Creating a mood board may seem insignificant, but it’s one of the most powerful tools designers use. It not only helps you to figure out how you want your kitchen to look and feel, but it helps you to stay true to your vision.
It’s a great reference point to help decide if a product style, material, finish or fitting works well with your overall vision.
Save any online images that catch your eye, convey an aesthetic or emotion that you like to a folder. Caesarstone’s gallery is a great place to start for inspiration.
Once you narrow down your favourite images, paste them onto a large piece of card. Alternatively, pin the pictures to a pinboard so you can move them around freely.
When you take a step back to review your board, you should see the design elements you like and better understand your style.
If ever in doubt, refer to this board.
Below we list all the essential finish components for a kitchen.
The first items to consider are the most visual elements of your kitchen, the benchtop and the kitchen island (if you have one). You may prefer to choose matching colours or use a stone with a vein for your island and a complementary stone colour for the back benchtops.
A splashback is essential for practical reasons and creates a striking focal point or a seamless aesthetic within a kitchen.
Continuing the same surface material from the benchtop into the splashback creates a seamless look that’s nothing short of stunning. For a striking kitchen, try using the same material in a contrasting colour or vein.
Your style preference will help you choose a cabinetry profile that works best for your kitchen. It’s important to note that the style and colour of the cabinetry door can affect the look and feel of your kitchen.

Cabinet handles may seem a minor detail but can significantly impact the style of your kitchen. Ideally, handles should match your mood board, be it Modern, Farmhouse, Hamptons, or Traditional.
The finish should reflect the style you want for your home. There's an array of metal or powder-coated finishes, including matte black, white, stainless steel, nickel, brass, bronze, copper, or even champagne.
If the budget allows, you may decide to opt for no handles at all. Push to open doors with a hidden finger grip door profile are a great alternative.
For tapware, it’s okay to mix metals for the sink tapware, cabinet handles and lighting. Using a mix can create an exciting and eclectic feel.

When renovating, you may find the kitchen has a different floor finish to other living spaces. You may prefer to use one material throughout the areas to create a modern, spacious, and seamless feel.
When selecting the floor coverings, opt for materials that are not only stylish but durable and easy to maintain.

Creating a cohesive colour palette is like pulling together a jigsaw puzzle; it’s all about choosing elements that fit well together.
Using your mood board to reference your style and colour preferences, you can begin to research finish options. Flooring and benchtops are the most critical finishes to examine first. From here, you can look at cabinetry profiles, colours, tapware and hardware finishes and paint colours.
A visit to a Caesarstone showroom provides the perfect opportunity to lay out material samples against large slabs or side by side. It allows you to see which materials and textures work best together and quickly detect colour differences, such as warm or cool undertones. At the same time, you can use pictures of tapware, appliances, and lighting to see how they fit within the colour and finishes palette.
When building the colour palette, incorporate elements that ''pop'' or create a focal point to avoid creating a bland or overpowering palette. For example, if you opt for a dark kitchen, complement the design with lighter flooring and paint.
