When the time comes to renovate your kitchen, your choice of kitchen colour schemes should not be taken lightly. The kitchen is the Heart of Your Home, after all, and you want anyone who walks through the door to feel welcomed and wowed!
Western Kitchen has comprised a style guide of some of our favourite kitchen colour schemes that will thrive this year and years to come, ensuring even the most style-phobic of your friends will be impressed. Without further ado, here are our favourite colours for kitchens.
WHITE …FRESH AS A DAISY
White is a wonderful base for your kitchen; it’s clean, fresh and demands attention. It also makes accessorising extremely easy — you could even change your accent colours according to the seasons or yearly trend forecasts if you’re conscious of style, making white a practical and versatile choice. This light and bright hue are also great for smaller kitchens, and especially those which lack natural light. That’s not to say white is a no-go for large kitchens, but in fact quite the opposite; we often ignore white as a colour choice for our kitchens because it’s ‘boring’ or ‘clinical’ — but it’s the perfect blank canvas for you to express your personality in splashes of colour and patterns wherever you see fit!
BLUE …OH I DO LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEASIDE
As ‘Colour of the Year’, this refreshing hue is an ideal kitchen décor starting point. The seaside trend is also set for big things this summer, so why not incorporate these natural hues into your scheme? Think soft sea-blues and off-whites, combined with natural wood worktops and sand-coloured accessories.
This is a bit of an extreme seaside theme, but I like some of the elements, like the combination of wood and blue for a natural contrast.
PASTELS …CANDY KITCHEN SAGA
Choose a scheme that reflects your eccentric, loveable personality and paint your kitchen pastel pretty. This dynamic theme is great for a toned-down country cottage that’s missing a little charm, or even an in-your-face contemporary funhouse, depending on how you mix up the shades!
