Black, white, wooden, beige, and plain old boring neutrals; this is what the typical kitchen design colour/material palette is composed of. However, if you’re more on the innovative side and love surrounding yourself with bright, popping, spring themed colours, then you certainly won’t appreciate this setback. So, if you want to dress your kitchens in colourful tones, here are 5 ideas that’ll definitely inspire you:
1. The cabinets
The cabinets make up a bulk of the overall kitchen design aesthetic, and so they are what needs to be tweaked first and foremost to get that colourful aura. You can either choose boldly hued laminates a la yellow, red, and blues. Or you can go for matt paint for a rather customized and elegant effect.
2. The floor
Your kitchen floor provides an excellent opportunity to patternize the whole aesthetic. Instead of choosing typical plain tiles, why not go for interesting patterns? The black and white lozenge style patterns featured in the kitchen in this image are such an innovative and eclectic way to transform your entire kitchen into a more interesting space.
3. The backsplash
Out of all other design elements used in the kitchen, it’s the backsplash that provides the biggest opportunity for you to bring in a colourful aura. Not only do you have a plethora of different material choices to pick from, you can also experiment with different forms. Some people prefer stickers on top of plain tiles while others are all about mosaics. Some people go for herringbone style subway tile patterns while others choose colourful peranaken tiles.
4. The countertops
The countertop may feel like its set in stone (ha!) but you can definitely tweak its texture and overall presence to suit a more virant aesthetic. For example, there are butcher block style countertops that are better than plain wood. Then there are innovative engineered quartz countertops in various finishes that can help you get a quirkier vibe in your kitchens.
5. A mishmash of accessories
While the cabinets, countertops, floors, and backsplash may be the most prominent parts of a kitchen design, they are not the only ones. In fact, the kitchen is always a mishmash of various items and accessories that contribute to its overall ambiance. For example, you can add retro style appliances, go for wall consoles with spice jars, and even add a sideboard/cabinet for extra storage. All of these contribute to making your kitchens feel more eclectic.
