How To Add Colour To Your Kitchen

Colour dominated in the 1930s-50s and now, after decades of beige and brown in our kitchens, it is finally back in fashion.  If you want to update your kitchen there are lots of fantastic ways of adding some colour.

In the past, appliances were only produced in white or stainless steel.  Now you can have any colour under the sun.  Smeg have some fantastic brightly coloured retro appliances.  Use your appliances to add colour to a more restrained kitchen or complement the colour of your units.

Another way of adding colour to your kitchen is by displaying brightly coloured crockery.  This is a great way of brightening things up without spending too much.  You can also add other accessories such as vases, faux flowers and soft furnishings.  A new blind will really add some colour.

A brightly coloured splash back can really look good.  You can use tiles or coloured acrylic sheets and quickly change the look of your kitchen.  Wall tiles can be used in a pattern of complimentary tones or go for clashing colours to give a really vibrant effect.  Floor tiles are also a quick way to add colour to your kitchen.

Simply repainting your walls can refresh the look of your kitchen and bring in some colour.  You can paint all the walls or just a statement wall, whichever suits you.  Old wooden cabinets can also be rubbed down and repainted easily and cheaply.  Colourful cabinets can really brighten up your kitchen.  Maybe add some post war pastel shades for a retro feel?

We often have some great colourful kitchens for sale – both ex-display and used.  Have a look at our current kitchens now
