While an all-white kitchen is a timeless classic, it can be fun to break up that wave of whiteness with the occasional splash of colour. It’s a simple trick, but one that can completely change the look and feel of your kitchen. It adds a sense of fun to any size of kitchen, providing bright and eye-catching accent points.
Here are just a few ways to go about it.
By far the easiest way to add a dash of colour is simply to buy some accessories to do the job for you. Whether it’s a matching toaster, kettle, and coffee machine in bright red, a set of tea, coffee, and sugar canisters, or even some artfully-placed tea towels, if the colours are bold enough, people will notice.
In an all-white kitchen, you’re free to go to town in terms of seat and stool cushions. Nothing looks out-of-place against such a stark background, so why not try something different?
A collection of colourful cabinets
Your kitchen cabinet doors are the ideal place to introduce a bit of colour. You can paint them, of course, but a quicker and easier way to achieve the effect is to replace your kitchen cupboard doors with pre-coloured varieties. You can create a really eye-catching impression by only colouring the doors on the lower cabinets or cupboards – those below the main work surface.
A window on the world
Painting your window frame and window sill can create a truly interesting focal point to any kitchen. A bold, striking colour can give the impression of a framed photograph hanging on the wall – one that just happens to capture the whole of the outside world.
Ups and downs
When we think about adding colour to our kitchens, two massive opportunities are often overlooked – the floor and the ceiling. However, both provide a vast expanse of kitchen real estate to brighten up the room. Naturally, the ceiling is the easier of the two, requiring only a lick of paint, but if you’re feeling adventurous, the floor is there for the taking.
At Hot Doors, we have an extensive range of coloured kitchen cupboard doors available for immediate purchase from our online store. There are dozens of different shades to choose from, with sizes to fit most cabinets.
