9+ Blue Kitchen Cabinets Australia – Ideas You’ll Fall in Love With
Are you considering using blue in your kitchen design? Thinking of incorporating some blue kitchen cabinets? Whether you are going for a sleek modern kitchen design, a Hamptons style or a traditional styled kitchen, introducing some blue in your cabinetry can add some personality without being overwhelming.
You can use navy blue as a neutral and it can work as an alternative to black or grey. Opt for blue paints that contain dark undertones and grey in them for this to work as a neutral alternative.
The colour blue works well in two-tones kitchens especially when combined with white, or soft neutrals like light grey. Below you will see kitchen paint design ideas using Dulux kitchen cupboard paints as well as Porter’s Paints and Taubmans.
Here is a selection of blue paint colors available at Bunnings in Australia used in real kitchens to help you make the right colour choice for your kitchen.

White kitchen cabinets and a subtle dark gray blue kitchen island painted in Dulux Oolong kitchen cabinet paint color.
An oversized island bench topped with honed dolomite stone makes a dark, dramatic statement in Dulux Oolong, with ‘Wovenest’ bar stools from Modanest tucked underneath.
