One of the most important decisions in the kitchen design process is to choose your colour scheme. Kitchens are the soul of a home and it’s important to choose colours that boost your mood and that you will love for years to come. There are oh so many shades, tones, and variations that you can explore so try to keep things simple for your sanity’s sake. Basically, these colours should connect with your personality (and those in your family), style, and budget. It’s not worth considering any colour unless you truly love it!
Here are several colours to give you inspiration & see what resonates most with you.
If you can’t make up your mind, go with white! White kitchens are classic and easily match with other colour accents. Timeless and bright, this is also a great option if your kitchen doesn’t get much sunshine as it will never feel dark.
With the world focusing so much on our planet & environment, green is becoming a trending colour for almost everything including kitchens. Depending on the shade, it can be rustic or vintage and pairs beautifully with natural timber.
Both fun and sophisticated, blue is a strong colour anywhere in a home & the variety of shades are endless.
If you’re not a fan of too dark or too light then why not meet in the middle with grey? Grey is a great colour for both contemporary and modern kitchens pairing easily with different colours & elements. For example, pair grey cabinetry with white tiling for a contemporary look or pair it with marble accents for a more modern look.
Whether dark timber or light timber, this is the best option if you want to bring the outdoors in. Dark timber is great if you want to achieve a retro or an industrial style.
No colour makes more of a statement than yellow! It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it sure makes people smile with its cheerful feel.
Just like white, black is another colour you really can’t go wrong with. While it’s a dark colour, the key with black is what you pair it with. Mix it with light timber or white and you can retain lightness.
