Deciding on a new colour scheme for your kitchen can be a minefield choosing from on trend Pantone schemes, classic cottage pastels, a bright and bold modern colour scheme, or a chic contemporary styling. However once you understand how to use the kitchen space you have choosing the right colour scheme is easy!
The first aspects of your kitchen you need to consider are the size and natural lighting. Do you have a small kitchen with a limited window light? To avoid making the kitchen feel smaller, avoid dark colours including navy and mahogany, instead light colours including pastel shades can make the area feel light and airy. Wanting to add a touch of vibrancy to the room, team white with a strong colour such as lime green, zesty orange or rich purples.
Have a medium or large sized kitchen with plenty of natural light? Avoid relying too much on white or light colours which can make the area feel sparse. Instead include warm or dark tones. White walls can be complemented with beautiful stand out cabinets in rich deep blues, vibrant reds or country cottage feel dove greys and duck egg blues.
Don't forget about the final touches which can really make your kitchen cabinets stand out. Sleek chrome handles can help to enhance a polished contemporary look, hammered effect knobs can add an extra layer of texture and interest while the stunning finish of a bold brass handle can amplify the rich colours of a dark painted cabinet finish.
