Not only the place to prepare and eat food, but now also the office, classroom and backdrop to catch up with loved ones, with more and more time spent in the hub of the home, create a kitchen to suit you. Colour is a spectacular tool to express yourself and your personality in this key space.
Colour in kitchens depends primarily on the quantity of natural light, size of the space and – perhaps most importantly – personal preference. Whether its for practicality or to show off your character, discover our expert advice for incorporating colour into your kitchen.
We have a gorgeous range of paint colours for an unlimited combination of coloured cabinets and doors, in a smooth or grain-visible finish. It’s also important to consider your flooring choices and worktop material, as well as the wall colour as these things will make up most of the space in the room. Whether you choose to keep the cabinets all the same colour, use different hues of a shade or go for contrasting and vibrant options (like the superb Pelham kitchen below), focussing on the cabinets is a great way to incorporate colour into your kitchen.
A more subtle, yet still striking use of colour is to add a pop here and there. We love the innovative way a bright blue has been used in the inside of the top cupboards in the Chepstow Villas kitchen, adding an interesting dimension and breaking up the otherwise neutral wall.
Another way to add accents of colour is through handles, taps, accessories and appliances, like the grand red Aga in our Long Acre kitchen.
In addition to paints and pigment pops, another way to introduce colour is through different textures and finishes. Metallics, such as hand-aged brass and copper splashbacks or steel cooker hoods add another element and aspect to the design.
What’s more, the use of light in the room has a big influence on colour too. Shades can appear different at different times of the day and ambient or accent lighting can be used to enhance the look and feel of the space.
Ultimately, pick colours you know you’ll love. Opt for a palette that will make you happy every time you walk into your kitchen – you’re the one that will be living with it!
We have recently expanded our own range of Naked colours to incorporate more bold and brave options, however if there is a particular colour you would like we can create a bespoke paint just for your kitchen.
