4 Ways To Add Some Bold Colour To A Neutral Kitchen

In recent years, kitchen design trends have been mainly focused on neutral, minimalist looks that are simple and have broad appeal. However, this style isn't for everyone, particularly if you like some vibrancy and colour in your home. Fortunately, it's possible to take the strong elements of modern design, such as sleek, clean lines, and marry them with splashes of bold colour to create a kitchen that you love. Here are four ways to introduce colour and a fun, playful feel into your kitchen.

1. Bold benchtops

Benchtops are one of the largest and most visible features in a kitchen. They're also a great way to make a bright and zesty centrepiece that will give your kitchen flair. Opt for a material such as engineered stone or modern formica, which both come in a rainbow of rich, cheerful shades. These materials have the added benefit of being cost-effective and durable as well.

2. Stylish splashbacks

The splashback area of the kitchen doesn't the same large surface area as a benchtop but it's still an ideal area to add some colour and life to your kitchen. It's a great compromise if you like bright shades but don't feel confident in having it on a big and dominant surface. Bright, patterned tiles look fantastic and add texture and detail to the room. For a sleeker look, coloured glass splashbacks look sharp and contemporary.

3. Colourful cabinetry

Colourful cabinets are another way to add a bold and creative look to your kitchen. Colours such as red, aqua and yellow are featuring in many modern kitchens because they are warm, inviting and daring. You can add new cabinets in your chosen colour or revamp your existing ones with a paint that's suitable for kitchen use. If you don't like the idea of floor to ceiling colour, leave the higher cabinetry neutral to keep the room feeling light and open.

4. Appealing appliances

While you may love a bright and colourful kitchen, if you're planning to sell your home in the near future, it might not be the best idea to be too adventurous. Prospective buyers might prefer the simple, neutral look and be turned off by your bold decor. Instead, add colourful appliances such as the fridge and dishwasher. This way you'll get the colour you love and you'll be able to take it along with you when it's time to relocate to your new abode.

About Me

Laura's Home and Gardening Blog

Yo! My name is Laura and if you had told me when I was aged 18 that one day I would be all grown-up with a home of my very own, I would have said you were mad. But it is true. I do own my own home and not only that, the property also has a large garden. When I first moved in, I didn't have a clue what I was doing out in the garden or inside my own home. Thankfully, I found a great home and garden contractor who helped me to plan and carry out the changes I wanted to make. Peace.
