09 Feb How to Design a Colourful Kitchen
Designing your kitchen with a style and colour scheme that suits your taste and the rest of your home can be hard to get right. You may wish to start off with a white base and then add small pops of colour or mix and match textures for a trendy and colourful design. Here are some tips you can apply when designing a colourful kitchen renovation.
- Start with a Neutral Base
White kitchens are timeless and make for a spacious cooking area. To add lots of colour to a kitchen it is safer to start with neutral cabinets for a subtle background, and then add colourful accessories and splashbacks to really make the colours stand out without looking too crowded.
- Decide on a colour palette
If you opt for an eye-catching feature wall for your kitchen splashback, it can set the colour palette for the rest of the kitchen. Select the main colours of your kitchen early on as it is hard to mix and match colours effectively and you want to be consistent throughout your whole cooking area.
- Mix textures as well as colour
To add variety to your kitchen, choose multiple textures and materials for your selected colour palette. A tiled glass splashback, timber floorboards, stone benchtops or wooden bar stools. Ensure you use each texture in more than one area so nothing feels out of place.
- Use colour in bold places
If you have started with a neutral base on your kitchen cabinets, walls or benchtops, adding bold colour through accessories or a feature wall is a great contrast. Paint the interior of your glass front cabinetry in a stand out shade or add a tiled splashback for a colourful focal point.
