Using Colour In Your New Kitchen

The kitchen is one of the first (if not the most important) spaces that builders, renovators and new homeowners alike focus on when it comes to putting their ‘stamp’ on, or adding value to, a property.

Using colour to create a new kitchen with wow factor is a handy kitchen design strategy but it can be a fine line. Use too much colour and you risk a kitchen that will be polarising or date.

So how can you use colour to create impact in your kitchen while future proofing your kitchen design?

Follow our top tips below for clever ways to inject a little colour into your new kitchen.

  • Appliances

Add a subtle injection of colour into your kitchen with the use of appliances. Have them on display for maximum impact and easily change to update your colour palette and look in the future.


  • Splash some colour on your splashback

We love using colour through splashbacks.  From glass to textured tiles, using colour on your splashback provides an interesting focal point and colour pop in your new kitchen design without offending.


  • Colour thy cabinetry

Add colour to your new kitchen design with coloured cabinetry.  Subtle tones like greys and soft sage greens will ensure your kitchen is on trend, visually interesting but aesthetic enough to withstand the test of time.


  • Let the outside in.

Your surrounding landscaping / vista can add the ‘colour’ through a window splashback, strategic framing, or glass louvres.

  • Tapware and Sinks

Utilise your tapware and sinks to enhance your kitchen’s colour scheme.  Think copper, brushed nickel, white or black for maximum impact and a washing zone that’s both practical and pretty!
