Purley in Light Grey


Updated: Jul 11, 2023

At System Six Kitchens, we love being able to offer the customer the bespoke designer kitchen they have always dreamt of, and one way we achieve this is through the broad variety of colour customisation we offer.

At System Six, not only do we have plenty of ‘off-the-shelf’ colours to choose from, but we also offer a Colour Match Service on selected ranges, so you can complement your chosen kitchen interior design theme perfectly.


At System Six Kitchens, we offer over 40 carcase colour options. This enables you to easily match your cabinets to your curtains or your doors! If you’re after something different, then you could choose to contrast your cabinets against the general theme of the room to draw attention to them.

But why limit colour to walls or accessories?


Your kitchen can be as bright, neutral, dark or light as you choose!

As well as two, expansive paint palettes to choose from, we also offer a colour-match service so you can create your very own bespoke designer kitchen. So, if you’ve spotted a colour you can’t live without, bring us a sample and we’ll create a bespoke kitchen tailored for you.


One custom colour that is becoming popular right now is Dulux’s colour of the year Brave Ground.

Dulux describes Brave Ground as “a bolstering shade that connects back to the nature and the simple things. A warm, earthy tone, it creates a feeling of stability, growth and potential; and provides a firm foundation for change and creativity in your home.”

As two-tone kitchens are in trend right now, one idea would be to feature a kitchen island in the colour of Brave Ground and combine this with the rest of your kitchen. Colours that pair well with Brave Ground are Porcelain and Alabaster, but there are hundreds of pairings that work well together.

With numerous popular paint companies like Dulux supplying every hue you could imagine, it is sometimes hard to accept colour limitations when it comes to kitchens. At System Six, we have lifted this barrier on some of our range and offer a complete Colour Match Service.


One real life example of System Six’s colour match service comes in the form of a beautiful kitchen we completed a case study for.

Lizzy and Paul wanted to keep their kitchen design light and colourful without being overbearing and were therefore conscious to avoid grey. After some online browsing, Lizzy found a Farrow & Ball colour scheme on Pinterest that she liked that also matched the couple’s design criteria.

The colours they selected, Pigeon & Cromarty, did a fantastic job at capturing the countryside ambience seen from her windows and bringing this into the home. As the bespoke colours selected were soft and neutral, they immediately became timeless in the context of the kitchen which meant that it would easily surpass System Six Kitchens’ 25 Year Guarantee.

Thoughts From The System Six Design Team

Richard Parnell – System Six Designer

“Customers like an option to match their kitchen units with an already existing piece of furniture.”

“In one case, a customer wanted to match in the splashbacks with the wall colours so that it blended in with the wall to be more discrete. Customers like to have the choice of being individual and with System Six we can offer any colour that the customer wishes to have. This way, it gives the customer the full bespoke treatment without having to pay the earth.”

Chris Phillips – System Six Showroom Manager

“The Beauty of the colour match service is that it is a super flexible process and that we can pretty much colour match anything!”

"Generally, the reason people ask for bespoke colours is that they are after something specific that they’ve seen. Usually, this colour is selected from a paint chart (Farrow & Ball or Little Greene) but could just as easily be from a physical item. Once we’ve sent this item off, they will send it back alongside an A5 colour swatch for the customer to approve prior to manufacture.”
