Picking a colour for your kitchen shouldn’t be daunting task. The application of colour in your kitchen can take many forms from small accents to statement cabinets. Adding colour into your new kitchen can be an effective way to personalise your space. When planning the kitchen, colour can be implemented in several different ways from cabinets to backsplashes.
Kitchens with large amounts of natural light can be more forgiving when choosing darker colours. However this should not put you off choosing darker shades in smaller spaces. A two-tone cabinet schemes makes adding colour to your kitchen achievable no matter the size. By incorporating dark base units and light wall units it is easy to create the illusion of more space in smaller spaces, especially those which are vertically challenged.
Light worktops can be used to contrast dark cabinets, encouraging the reflection of light through a space giving the illusion of a lighter, airier kitchen. Rich and dark tones of worktops can create a bold contrast, complementing light cabinets to bring depth into the space drawing you into it.
Adding wood, whether it be in the work tops or cabinets can bring warmth and textured to your space. Wood elements come in a variety of shades and tones allowing for a range of designs dependent on the desired look of your kitchen. Wood can be used in combination with statement colours to create a warm and cohesive design or can be used in their place to accent neutral colours.
Adding a splash of colour into your kitchen can be easily achieved with statement tiles or glass backsplash, these elements are advantageous when feeling overwhelmed by the commitment of coloured cabinets as they can be replaced far more easily. When choosing statement tiles you can incorporate as much or as little colour as you wish while simultaneously creating texture.
