For instance, what colour should the worktop be? What colours have you thought about for the kitchen units? The colour of the splashback, the kitchen tiles, flooring and so on?

Not to fear though, we have taken all those thoughts, and hope to give you some ideas below, so you can get more of a handle on the right colour mixture and overall contrast when thinking about a Cashmere kitchen.

Why Cashmere is a Great Colour Choice

Now, just before we get into the other colours that work aloingside Cashmere as a colour choice for a kitchen, we need to firstly understand why it is is such a great colour choice to begin with.

Why this works is that it actually adds warmth to whether you're going for a lighter colour palette or even a darker one. No matter, the tone choice you go for, it works really well.

Brings Warmth and Softness

Cashmere naturally brings a warmth to the overall colour, it's natural in shade and that's why it can work with not just a range of colours, but also styles as well. Whether you are wanting a more modern and sleek kitchen or perhaps something more rustic and bold, and perhaps even industrial. Cashmere can work with stronger colours but also help aid lighter and weaker colours too.

It's great to mix and match textures that work together to create a more unique and interesting overall look to your kitchem, use of different finishes such as high gloss and matt lacquered can create a different direction for the use of colours that you want to use with your Cashmere kitchen, so that should be something to consider also.
