There may be a stage when your home becomes a bit dull or monochromatic for your liking. It’s time to add some colour into your home to create a fun and vibrant space. Small splashes of colour tend to make the largest impact on a room. Below are our favourite tips to add some flair to your kitchen.


A splashback will create a lovely focal point in your kitchen, which adds character and dimension. Glass is a great option for low maintenance and comes in a variety of colours and finishes to suit everyone. Tiles are versatile and decorative. If you want to add some colour choose subway style tiles that are traditional or opt for a mosaic design if you like vibrant patterns.

Colourful Appliances

Many colourful appliances are on the market to help break a lacklustre theme by adding bright colours into the mix to transform your kitchen. Kettles, pots and mixers are at the top most wanted colour appliances that will pop out from the rest of your kitchen. This trend helps to add personality and can be easily spread out throughout the home.


Many people wouldn’t think flooring as an important part to change in your kitchen. But, adding some colour there can make a large difference. If you are renovating your kitchen choose light wooden boards or bright tiles to create a spacious area. Also adding a rug in your kitchen is an effortless way to bring colour into the theme.

Kitchen Island

Revamp your most functional and diverse element in your kitchen by refurbishing your island topper. A neutral kitchen will receive a large boost of colour and warmth into the space. Opt for a high-gloss or stone topper for easy maintenance, durability and dramatic effects.

Open Shelving

Show off appliances and dinnerware in sleek open shelving style to add texture and personality into your kitchen. The key is not to have an overwhelming amount of colours that will conflict with each other. Stick to a two to three colour scheme and avoid cramming the dinnerware close together. Additionally, you could paint the inside of the open shelves to add a brightening effect if you do not have colourful dinnerware or appliances.


Living colour by adding plants is an easy way to add an instant boost of colour and refresh a kitchen. Planting herbs is versatile as it can be used both practically to cook with and be a decorative piece. Hang small pots or place on windowsills to free space on your bench.
