As lovers of beautiful spaces and practical solutions, we are sure you are familiar with the saying “form follows function”, which works on the principle that the shape of a building / object should be primarily based upon its proposed function or purpose. We believe that wholeheartedly as well, yet we also believe in never pushing style aside for the purpose of functionality.

Which brings us to probably the most used space in the entire house – the kitchen. It is the space where we cook, bake, dine, and work by ourselves. Yet it is also the room where we entertain friends and spend quality time with family. Thus, the kitchen is an open space in your house, meaning it needs to flaunt a certain visually pleasing look in addition to being practical.

Applying colour to your kitchen, whether through wall hues or coloured appliances, is one of the easiest (and most fun) ways to make that space better, brighter, and visually bigger.

So, let’s check out some colour possibilities to make your kitchen so much more alluring and welcoming.

1. Copper utensils paired with rustic wood? Now that’s how you do ‘homely’ and ‘cosy’!

2. When working with wooden countertops, we recommend soft neutrals to bring out that rustic look.

3. With white countertops and backsplashes, a stone-grey neutral can coat your entire kitchen in soft elegance.

4. Pastels for your cabinetry? Fantastic, but try contrasting with some bright tones via flowers and potted plants.

5. The monochrome look is a classy choice for a reason, as it is always refreshing, clean, and oh-so modern.

6. Dealing with lots of timber surfaces? Offset these with clean concrete and stainless steel for a contemporary vibe.

7. A bold hue is a terrific choice to make your kitchen pop with style, especially when bringing in mosaic tiles.

8. Seeking that Hamptons-style look? Light sage green mixed with white cabinetry!

9. As long as you bring in lots of natural lighting, a dark colour scheme can work a treat.

10. Patterns are perfect for styling up a bland space. But keep it simple, such as a backsplash and flooring, or window treatment and tiled countertops, etc.

11. Think Scandinavian hues to make your kitchen look bright and open, such as light pastel colours that are minimalist and slightly youthful/soft.

12. Mix up three shades of blue (with two light hues) for a kitchen that’s both mysterious and charming.

13. All white can be so chic, but balance it out with some patterns to avoid the clinical look.

14. Marine blue mingling with stainless steel and white pendants can make a kitchen look so elegantly neat, don’t you agree?

15. Coloured kitchens are so much more than wall tones—add a pop of colour with a retro-style coloured appliance.

16. Match those tiles with the bold wall colours for a striking and electric effect.

17. More than one pattern can work in a single space, but then it has to be done correctly, as shown here.

18. Gravitating towards a very light colour for your cabinetry? Offset it with a warm and earthy neutral, like this marble backsplash/countertop.

19. A vibrant yellow becomes so much more enjoyable when mixed with rustic timber surfaces. Don’t forget to add lots of natural- and artificial lighting.

20. On the other hand, that yellow pops a bit more when minimised and paired with a black-and-white look.
