Colourful Kitchens – How to Add Colour to Your Kitchen
A lot of our clients come to us wanting to add new kitchen colours but don’t know where to start.
With this in mind, we’ve compiled our three top tips for mastering this conundrum for coloured kitchens. Here’s how to wave goodbye to the traditional white kitchen and say hello to a more colourful kitchen that is more vibrant!
White vs Colour in Your Kitchen
If you’re stuck between light and dark, traditional and modern, or even wood and colour, when it comes to your new kitchen, we urge you to consider two-tone cabinets, as shown in one of our projects below:
Not only is this two-tone approach eye-catching in a ‘why didn’t I think of that’ kind of way, but it also adds charm and personality into your space.
You can combine all sorts of kitchen colours, but contrasting greys and blue teamed with white was the firm favourite for 2020, as shown in this Milano kitchen by Symphony below:
A Hint of Metal
Combining timeless neutrals with classic bold colours leaves room for you to be more adventurous with accessories in your colourful kitchen.
You can make a real statement with metallic final touches like handles that will make your cabinets look even more luxurious.
Metal accents also work really well for appliances, cutlery and even your pots and pans – especially if any of them are on show in your coloured kitchen.
Subtle Integration of Colour
A coloured kitchen isn’t all about being bold or brass!
You can create that stylish, colourful kitchen look by embracing the lightest kitchen colour shades. This works really well with pinks, blues and greens, especially when you team them with contrasting colours like white and black.
The Laura Ashley Bedale in cooks blue, works perfectly for a traditional look:
There nothing more colourful than the great outdoors, and it’s something you can embrace indoors too for your colourful kitchen.
Even the simple addition of a wood worktop over a white quartz worktop can add another dimension to yourkitchen colour space.
Finishing touches like a house plant, straw storage baskets or wicker chairs will also give a natural boost of kitchen colour.
