Kitchens give you lots to play with when decorating. There are walls, cabinets, worktops, appliances and so many more facets to think about. In other words, you have lots of opportunities to experiment with colour.
More and more homeowners are making braver colour choices in their kitchens, particularly with jewel tones and on their cabinets! Moving away from whites and neutrals, navy blues are proving to be a popular choice at the moment. Inky-hued kitchen cabinets are an especially trendy look and really enhance a space.
And it’s no surprise that we’re filling our kitchens with rich, luscious greens. They add both a sense of freshness and sophistication to a space. The botanical trend is also one to watch, with its use of punchy greens.
Remember, you can try the two-tone technique to ease you into these kitchen colour trends. For example, painting only your lower cabinets in a dark shade will allow you to be bold, without the colour being too overbearing.
Steph’s made brave colour choices in her multifunctional kitchen. With grey as her base colour, she’s used citrus yellow to inject flourishes of colour into the space.

If you want to know more about the colour yellow, listen to the Series 1 finale.
