Those looking for the latest kitchen design ideas are often wondering what the most fashionable colour combinations or the colour trends of the moment are. Actually, there is fundamentally no right or wrong way to design a kitchen. Pretty kitchens come in all shapes, sizes, and colours. For each colour palette you will have to resort to your aesthetic sense and decide whether the combination is suitable or not.
Here are some colour ideas to guide you through the process:
Shades of grey – never out of fashion
Grey and its multiple shades are great for new modern homes. Make sure you pair grey with white or black to prevent a monotonous aspect of your kitchen and add some spots of bright colours to bring life to your kitchen designs.
Extending paint from floor to ceiling
This is a designer trick that more people are incorporating into their kitchen designs. The whole idea of this technique is to visually lower high ceilings and make the space feel cosy. The effect is guaranteed if you paint the entire room a dark colour or choose a darker shade for the ceiling.
Yellow, green, and blue + wood finishes
Muted tone of blues, tans, yellows, and green look particularly great when paired with natural wood finishes. Wood colour furniture will always provide an elegant look to your kitchen designs while mixing this kind of texture with the colours mentioned earlier will add a modern and informal note to your interiors.
Dark grey + warm gold or navy blue + crisp beige
Lacquer white cabinetry is always appearing in your kitchen design ideas and you don’t know how to take this otherwise tasteful element out of the ordinary? Our recommendation is to accentuate this type of ultramodern cabinetry with one of the following pairs: dark grey + warm gold or navy blue + crisp beige. You can’t go wrong with these combinations!
Preppy colours on a black-and-white kitchen
The traditional black-and-white kitchen is a safe choice, but you have already seen it in so many kitchen designs that you’d like to personalise it somehow. You can provide an updated look to this kind of kitchen by adding small pops of preppy colours. The preppy colour palette is usually made from navy, white, crimson, burgundy, emerald green and deep brown. Use bright shades pulled from the rainbow in artwork, window treatments, light fixtures, or accent pieces.
You are looking for a light colour for your cabinetry, something different than white, but also with a classical look and still feeling modern? Cool mint or light green cabinets are an excellent choice, as this pastel colour brightens the space and doesn’t show small stains and splashes immediately. For a look that is both modern and vintage at the same time, combine cool mint with white tiles, wooden shelves, and black or chrome grips.
Wood colour + orange + white
This combination will provide a warm feeling to your kitchen design and will allow you at the same time to use resilient charcoal countertops and silver-coloured appliances. Brighten up your design with white tiles and stick for wooden floors and doors. There is an extra advantage for choosing this combination – the wood colour of your doors and floor will allow you to easily pick other combinations for the rest of your house.
