The ideal place to experiment with colour, the kitchen is the heart of the home and as such, should be where you express your unique sense of style, bringing some personality and character into your interior.
When it comes to bringing colour into the kitchen, from statement islands, painted walls, contrasting cabinetry or soft furnishings, the key is to add warmth. Natural textures such as rattan, wood and bamboo offer a sense of comfort in the home whilst adding some contrast and interest. Whether incorporated into the scheme through the island, flooring or seating, natural materials work in harmony with bold, dark hues for a cohesive colourful aesthetic.
It’s important to consider the level of natural or artificial light in the kitchen, as this will play an important role in determining the overall feel of the space. Darker shades, for example, are renowned for absorbing light and the application of such colours needs to be carefully planned. An effective way of integrating darker colours into a kitchen is to create contrast by adding darker tones on low cabinets combined with white or grey worktops. This helps to reflect illumination off the horizontal surface, resulting in a colourful, yet light interior.
Last but certainly not least, to complete a colourful kitchen it’s essential to get your finishing touches just right to bring the entire scheme together. Metallic accents on your handles, taps and accessories can be matched or for a more fluid and expressive approach, don’t be afraid to combine a variety of finishes. From brushed brass knurled handles and taps, to bronze sinks and black lighting, the possibilities are endless when it comes to creating a truly individual colourful kitchen.
