For many people, the kitchen is the hub of the home. In recent years, it has become one of the most important rooms in any modern home. We use it to eat, drink, entertain and everything in between. However, in such a busy space, it can be easy to shy away from using colour. Why not brighten up your kitchen with some of these design tips?
1. Look up – the ceiling can be a forgotten gem
The ceiling is a perfect place to incorporate a splash of colour as it’s an almost uninterrupted, blank canvas. What’s more, as it’s overhead, you can be as bold and beautiful as you like and it won’t be overbearing.
2. Crafty creations
The kitchen is a great area to get your creative juices flowing! Adding a splash of colour couldn’t be easier when you’re getting crafty as you can pick and choose the perfect shade. White pottery and other kitchen items are readily available to buy online for you to add your own personal touch to and jazz up any eating space.
3. Get your 5-a-day with colourful fruit
Having a funky fruit bowl is a great way to incorporate some life in to your kitchen, as well as some more fruit in to your diet of course. Fruits such as pomegranates and mangoes have a brilliant vibrant colour that is guaranteed to pop in any kitchen.
4. Feature furniture
If you’re a new colour-lover, committing to an entire feature wall of one colour can be rather daunting. Instead, why not try opting for bright feature pieces of furniture? They are guaranteed to subtly spruce up any colourless kitchen and are easily changed.
5. Quirky appliances
The most basic part of a kitchen are the appliances, every kitchen has them. So have a little fun with them! Colourful appliances add a quirky, modern twist to a kitchen.
