It’s no surprise that yellow is associated with sunshine, so it works fabulously in a north-facing kitchen that is starved of natural light. It’s an instant mood-booster as well, making it ideal for a busy, family kitchen that will host lots of activity. And it works in all sizes of rooms, too. In a small kitchen that’s sole purpose is cooking, you can afford to be more daring and try it on all four walls, whereas in a large space you can experiment with colour blocking and zoning.
Play around with colour options if rich golden hues are not your thing – Dulux has lots of paint colours for kitchen walls. Have fun and happy cooking in your new, colourful kitchen!
Marianne’s insider tip: To keep it modern, choose colours with warmer tones for a grown-up vibe.
