5 fun ways to add a touch of colour in your kitchen renovation

If you are considering using colour in your kitchen design, you have probably already considered all the obvious ways: coloured cabinetry, coloured benchtops, and coloured tiled splashbacks. All of these mean adding quite a lot of colour - which I am all for - but if this feels too much for you, I've listed below 5 fun ways to add only a touch of colour instead:

1 | Inside an appliance or bar cupboard

An appliance cupboard or bar cupboard that is designed to be closed when not in use, could be the perfect place to go bold with colour. You may want to do the whole internal joinery in a fun colour, or just add some coloured shelves inside for a small pop of colour when open.

2 | In the shadow lines

A shadowline is a design feature where you leave a recessed gap between the benchtop and the cabinetry below. We usually add shadowlines even if they are the same colour as the cabinetry below, as it makes the kitchen feel more sophisticated. However, this is also a fun spot where you may want to experiment with adding a colour (or even just a different texture - like timber).

3 | Splashback grout

If you are having a tiled splashback but feel that a coloured tile may be too much, why not add the colour in the grout instead. This is particularly striking when using a subway or mosaic - but remember that the smaller the tile is, the more colour and pattern you will see.

4 | Tapware

A few companies, like Brodware and Astra Walker have kitchen sink mixers available in a range of fun colours from greens, to blues and even red! If your sink is located quite centrally within the kitchen, this could be a perfect spot to do a splash of colour.

5 | Feature lights

Feature lights could be a fun spot to add colour, whether they are pendants over the island or a wall sconce on the back wall. There are many options available in colour now, but do keep in mind that for lights over the island bench, it is best that the light does not reflect off the colour (eg. colour to be on outside of the shade not inside) as this may affect the colour of the light that is thrown onto the bench itself.

I hope these ideas have been helpful! If you want to find out more about how we can help you with your project, get in contact with us below:
