A busy family kitchen is the heart of a home, so not only should it look and feel warm and welcoming, it’s also got to work for you and your family’s needs.
To stay in love with your kitchen for longer, it’s a good idea to go for neutral units and then play with colour in areas that are quick, easy and cost-efficient to update, whenever you feel like it. In this guide, we’ll show you two ways you can give a neutral kitchen a new lease of life with colour that stays put.
Our Easycare kitchen paint repels tough stains and is easy to wipe clean, meaning you can choose from a rainbow of colours, without worrying about messy little fingers, paws or even culinary creations that might be shared with the walls.
Go bold with a blue feature wall
If you’ve got light and neutral units and worktops, you’ve got a blank canvas to play with in your space. Try using a rich and vibrant shade, such as Sapphire Salute to create a contrasting feature wall that accentuates your units and worktops and highlights luxurious brass fixtures.
For other walls, opt for a gentle grey to provide a calming balance to your feature wall. Polished Pebble is the perfect colour to match with richer shades and complements accessories too. So, whether you’re mixing metals or picking pot plants for your window sill, these colours are an ideal solution for a bustling family kitchen.
Pick two-tones of grey for a split effect
If you’re feeling creative, why not try a split effect in your kitchen? Using a pre-existing split, like shelving or your top units, it’s easy to achieve this look. The clean line across the room, will help lead the eye along the space, making it appear longer. Opting for a darker shade along the bottom will also conceal scuffs that are inevitable in a busy area used for different activities throughout day.
For a stylish yet inviting space for you and your family to enjoy, choose two shades of grey to compliment neutral units and wooden worktops.
Whether it’s hectic meal times, homework hour or the odd quiet moment to grab a cup of tea, this look will take on a different mood as the light changes. For instance, with a bit of soft lighting, it’ll look smart and sophisticated, ready for hosting dinner with friends.
From mischievous children and playful pets to an enthusiastic chef, enjoy stress-free mess with Easycare kitchen paint.
