Now, more than ever, our kitchens need to work seriously hard. Not only are they spaces for cooking and eating, but they’re spots for working from home and entertaining the kids, too. Whether open-plan or divided-up, there’s no denying they’re increasingly dynamic, and need to accommodate many different needs on any given day. Mid-week dinner prep and late-night Zoom call? You got it! After-school kids’ club and catch-up with friends? No problem! Luckily, a quick lick of paint can help to zone an area easily, using colour in savvy ways to define a multi-purpose kitchen. So, why not take your kitchen to task this weekend, from prepping everything on Friday to painting and decorating on Saturday and finishing-up on Sunday? Satisfaction, guaranteed. Here, we show you how a handful of kitchens can be transformed effortlessly in just a few days, whether using block-colour or clever techniques. Crack open a can and get the whole family to dip in – the promise of a cooked lunch at the end should do the trick.
