Pink kitchen with white honeycomb tiles and granite benchtop
Add embracing warmth to a contemporary kitchen scheme with an on-trend shade of pink! Team soft pink with muted metallics and lashings of crisp white to create a warm and welcoming space.

Making the move to pink

From millennial pink to the muddier, clay-toned shades we’re embracing now, pink is a colour trend that’s set to linger, bringing warmth to a contemporary interior. Pair it with metals like brass or gold to create a muted, easy-to-live-with scheme.

Make a pink kitchen work

Start with a blush base, layering with warm timber tones; consider using oak for cabinetry or engineered timber floorboards as it has a similar tonal strength to a soft pink. Streamlined door profiles are a good choice with this palette, allowing timber grain to provide the room’s interest and texture. Lighter colours provide a good balance; try penny round mosaic tiles or a stone-look laminate benchtop like Kaboodle’s Crackle Crush to capture pale tones with a touch of texture.

Play pink your way

Swapping brass for brushed nickel and stainless steel brings a brighter look to a pink kitchen. Be sure to balance this colder-looking metal with warm, textured finishes like timber in floors, cabinetry or even a statement pendant light!

If you’re nervous about committing to all-pink, you could stick to wall paint or try it just on the kitchen island or a run of wall cabinets. When using pink in the kitchen, remember that Kaboodle’s paint-your-own doors can be painted in your hue of choice – try Porter’s Paints Baby Doll for a sweet finish – and repaint it if your tastes change.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
