When you think about decorating your home, most people immediately look to colour, accessories and texture as the big three elements that work in any room. Oftentimes, when you go into someone’s home, or see homes in some of those big design magazines, you will notice living areas that are bright and colourful and bedrooms that embrace colour with bed linens and curtains.
However, many people don’t bring much colour in the kitchen, keeping the palette more subdued with greys and browns, rather than the colours you will see in the rest of the home.
But, you shouldn’t be afraid of colour in the kitchen, in fact, it is becoming a growing trend, take a look at some of these kitchens where the owners are not afraid of colour.
Use Colour on Kitchen Cabinets
A traditional white kitchen can be transformed with a simple splash of colour. This kitchen still gives a truly elegant and luxury feel, but with the bright green cabinets, really displays the personality of the owners and truly livens up the room. And, for those who change their minds on the colours, just add another coat of paint over the green to showcase your new favourite.
A Use a Colourful Focal Point
If you are looking for a punch of colour in the kitchen but don’t want to go too overboard with it all, consider using a focal point. This kitchen has a relatively subdued theme, until you see the focal point, which is their stove area. The owners of this kitchen have taken all the colour and used it to highlight their professional grade stove by getting one that is bright red and provides more than enough pop.
Use Muted Colours
Not all kitchens have to be full of bright colours. There are plenty of ways to get your point across and bring some colour into the room without needing to have everything be bright. This kitchen has a more rustic feel, so it does bring in colours, but at the same time keeps them muted in order to play in with the design of the room.
By using some of these rooms as an example, you will be able to add in some colour to your kitchen to brighten it up, but at the same time keep them true to the overall design, and bring in personality. If you have a chance to rework your kitchen, consider bringing in some pops of colour to make a real statement.
