How to introduce colour into your kitchen

Creating a Colourful Kitchen

The kitchen is a place for creativity of all kinds, so you don’t need to be afraid to add a little colour. Choosing the right colours can have a big impact on the feel of your room and how it blends in with the rest of your decor. They play a crucial role in shaping the character of your kitchen.

There are no hard and fast rules about which colours to choose, but it’s important to stick with something you’ll like long-term instead of going with trends. The best kitchen is one you love to be in!

Here are some great ways to add some colour to your kitchen.

Choose Your Colours

There are so many ways to add colour to your kitchen! Before you start, have a look around for some inspiration. It could be a favourite colour, a piece of art work, or a particular feel you’d like to create in your space. Once you have a starting point, you can look around for colours that will support and complement your idea.

You don’t necessarily have to stick to the colour wheel, but it can be a good place to begin when exploring what colours will look good together. The four main types of effective colour combination are analogous, monochromatic, triadic, and complementary. These terms describe how different colours relate to each other on the colour wheel, and make it much easier to choose shades that won’t clash – unless you personally prefer a more chaotic combination!

Consider patterns as well as solid blocks of colour – patterned feature tiles, art work, or bench tops add visual texture. Once you have a clear idea of where to begin, you can start assessing your kitchen for ways to introduce your colour scheme.

Statement Surfaces

Your kitchen is full of surfaces that can lend themselves to colour. Utilise larger surfaces to create dramatic feature walls that create an instant impression. Your doors, floors, and ceilings can be a wonderful way to introduce colour, with lighter colours giving a modern, open feel and darker colours making the space seem cosy.

You might consider using a coloured bench as a statement piece that sets the tone for the rest of the kitchen. For smaller-scale areas, choose your back splash and cupboard colours to help your kitchen stand out.

Removable Colour

If you’re not able to make permanent changes or just don’t want to commit to a colour scheme, there are still plenty of ways to add colour to your kitchen. Your appliances are a great place to start. Many companies make appliances in a range of colours that are attractive enough to earn a place on the bench. Think ahead before you make a big purchase – if you choose an unusual colour it might be difficult to purchase more than one item in the same shade.

Colourful furniture can be enjoyed and changed as necessary. Depending on your kitchen set up, you could look at bar stools, shelves, or a small couch to provide comfort and a pop of colour to your kitchen.

Choose some artwork and use it to make your kitchen more colourful. You could buy a print or painting for the wall, but don’t forget your benches! Add a few decorative jars or sculptures for some interest and colour in your kitchen. Best of all, they’re easily changed.

Soft furnishings are also easy to change, but can have a big impact on your chosen colour scheme. Think curtains, rugs, and tea towels. You can get creative with patterns and colours as they’re very easy to swap and adjust.
