Will dark coloured kitchen units make my low ceiling look lower ?

I have a very Low ceiling kitchen but love plain English design in dark dark blue or grey with maybe a lighter blue/ grey thin vertical panelled walls. Is this crazy?

It's not crazy if it's the design you love. Don't forget: when all is said and done, you're the one seeing the kitchen every day, so choose something that will make you happy. One way to make sure the kitchen does not become a low, dark cave, though, is to make sure it has great lighting. Here are some tips for ensuring your kitchen is lit well: http://www.lightsonline.com/how-to-light-a-kitchen

Also, take the cabinet s to the ceiling with no soffit and this will make the room look taller.

I think it can be stunning! I agree with cabinets to the ceiling except use cdrown molding for the English look you desire. By all means good lighting however to achieve the look do not use harsh lighting. Have dimmers and have a smallish lamp on one of your countertops for ambient lighting. I do suggest Carrera marble if you go grey or hammered stainless (to resemble pewter) if you go dark blue for your countertops and pl;ease consider hanging some antique mirror. I have a wonderful photo of a tiny deep blue kitchen and cannot seem to lay my hands on it. If I find it soon I will post it for you. I hope you will go for it and post photos! Hope this helps. :)
