8 ways to add colour to your kitchen

Whether it’s just a pop of colour or a complete colour transformation, changing up your kitchen colour palette can enhance your kitchen space. You needn’t undergo a renovation either to change up your look. From simplistic feature walls to modern interior design ideas – we share the best ways to add colour to your kitchen space.


  1. A feature wall

If you’re short on time and budget and like to keep things classic, why not opt for a feature wall? While it’s nothing new in kitchen design, it’s still a favourite.

  1. Coloured countertops

Neutral coloured countertops are a thing of a past. You no longer have to stick to natural materials like wood or granite and neutral colours like grey, black and beige. While neutral coloured worktops are still popular, coloured Corian countertops are proving to be a hit too. So, whether you want a touch of canary yellow or a bold blue hue, it’s completely up to you.

  1. High gloss home

Our high gloss cupboards are a popular feature of the contemporary kitchen. They help add style and sophistication to a kitchen space while making a space feel larger too. Best of all, high gloss cupboards allow you to play with colour while ensuring a multidimensional effect too.

  1. Luxe lighting

Be daring with your lighting and opt for fun feature LED lights. Coloured under-cabinet lighting can add a stylish glow to your working space while an LED feature wall is another exciting designer kitchen idea.

  1. Island attraction

A kitchen island presents a whole host of opportunities – one of which being the injection of colour. Why not keep the colour of your kitchen neutral except for an injection of colour to your island? A classic colour like deep red, duck egg blue or navy is a great choice and ensures a timeless design too.

  1. Marvellous metallics

If you’re still nervous about colour in the kitchen, why not opt for materials that offer just a touch of colour? Metallic accents in brass, silver or copper can help you make a unique statement without going crazy with colour. Think chrome taps, copper light shades and a dazzling metallic tile splashback… the possibilities are endless.

  1. Layering shades

Another great option for those new to colour, or those keen to keep things classic and simple, is layering. Chose a shade you’re comfortable with – grey usually works well – and layer multiple shades of that colour throughout your kitchen. For example, you could combine a light grey feature wall, dark grey wood cupboards and ash-grey tiles for your flooring.

  1. The little extras

If a kitchen renovation isn’t on the cards, why not transform your kitchen with coloured accessories and small appliances? Choose one colour and choose appliances and accessories in a single shade. You can often find colourful toasters and kettles and team them with matching curtains, tea towels and crockery too.
