Gloss kitchens?

Does anyone know of/can recommend anywhere that does gloss kitchens that
a) come in colours other than white, cream, brown or grey
b) don't cost a zillion pounds

We have the red Ikea units in our utility which I love but I'm wary of putting them in our kitchen as it might overpower the space and I'm not sure if the foil will last.

Ideally I'd like a turquoise-ish blue or interesting green but I haven't been able to find any outside of any bespoke stuff.

Saw a coffee coloured one at Wicks yesterday. It might have been described as mushroom or taupe.

I have a gloss white one. TBH they are all going to look out of date after 10 years. My friend does up expensive houses in London gets IKEA to fit the units and then bungs expensive very modern up to date coloured doors on the front.

Magnet do a pale blue/grey that is really nice - not sure of the quality although it looked great in the showroom (not surprisingly!).

Have you considered another finish, you may get more choice. I plan to go for a matte finish. I have a large gloss unit and I think it's looking rather dated already and I want to swap it out. Also I'm thinking matte doesn't show every smudge like my gloss stuff does.

The magnet and Wickes doors are also foil/vinly doors

Schuller kitchens did a few different gloss colours when I went in this summer. Quality seemed good as well.

Def an aqua blue in Magnet as we've ordered it!

I quite like the aqua blue one, but it's not maybe as striking as we'd like. I need to go and see it in-store to get a better idea.

Love the Schuller ones, but they're probably out of our budget!

Interesting idea of IKEA carcasses and bespoke doors; I'll talk to our builder about that one.

Thank you!
