Choosing the perfect colour scheme for a kitchen can be one of the most important decisions you can make when purchasing your designer kitchen. The layout is the most important aspect, but when it comes to the overall look, nothing will matter more than how the colours all balance in the grand scheme of the room.
You have to take into consideration things like, natural light, constructed lighting, the overall look and feel of your home living spaces and of course, the colours you love and the colours that are most practical.
But the trend that has really created its own style in recent years is all about mixing and matching across the whole colour spectrum! Some work better than others, no doubt, but the idea is something that shouldn’t be a big surprise, especially to anyone that has read our blog before.
Here is our brief guide in creating a kitchen colour scheme that works for you!
Break up a white scheme
One of the best ways you can incorporate colour into a kitchen design is by breaking up totally white schemes. Whether you have a gloss or wood painted door, one of the biggest design updates you can achieve is adding an accent colour.
It may be a base unit or island unit, you could incorporate an open book end area with a different colour scheme, the important thing is to bring an element of the kitchen to stand out.
Bring out symmetry
One of the ways that mixing colours can help your overall design in the kitchen is by showcasing symmetry. By mixing different colours, you can achieve an overall look that plays with symmetrical lines better than with a single colour.
Solid white cabinets can be off balanced with a different material, such as wood in wall units to really bring about a dramatic look. It may not be something that you’ve thought about but if you have the space, you should really consider its overall appeal.
Develop that monochrome finish
One of the big advantages of duality in colour schemes is that we can develop the idea of a monochrome finish. It requires a bit more work than just two colours however; think about the stainless steel handles bringing out a strong look and finish, as well as the paint work itself.
You can develop stronger colour mixes here and offset with things like your worktop or even throw in a third dimension with solid wood shelving.
Unleash the inner monolith!
One of the keys to dual colour schemes is how you manipulate the colour. But who said the colour had to all be down to the unit or the paint? Why can’t the colour be developed by unleashing some sort of inner monolith with your worktop materials. Using a cascading effect on an island unit and even your main countertops to really create a depth of colour that you can use in your kitchen area.
Don’t be afraid to show off!
Your colour scheme is personal to you, but picking a dual colour scheme also gives you the opportunity to really make it something different and one that really stands out.
Picking one accent colour in the kitchen layout, like blue for example, you could easily use that accent colour in other areas of your living space to really make it stand out and showcase to your family and friends your amazing new kitchen.
