Work with shapes and forms

When you consider a colourful kitchen space, it is often a good idea to look at the different shapes and forms you can work with. In this example we see a beautiful cooking area, which boasts a range of various shaped cupboards. The dark splashback adds drama, while the fitting free joinery is more of an artwork than a place to prepare and cook food!

Add a bright hue to brighten up a monochromatic colour scheme

In an all-white colour scheme (or any monochromatic scheme for that matter), it is often a good idea to add a burst of contrast. Green has been chosen in this instance, and it works beautifully. Hidden in its own cupboard area, the bright hue is modern and eye-catching, while still feeling professional and sophisticated. It combines playfulness and cheer, while keeping the design simple enough that the bright green avoids feeling overwhelming. The added artworks seal the deal, and give this home a casual yet attention-grabbingly impressive aesthetic.

Consider refacing your kitchen cabinets

If you aren’t in the market for a completely new kitchen, you can brighten up your decor by working with what you have. Refreshing your kitchen cupboards gives a beautiful renewed vibe, while saving you money and time by avoiding a costly new cooking space. This kitchen boasts impressive canary yellow cupboard doors, which could easily be painted to suit any interior design. The exposed shelving also works well in this instance, as it creates a country aesthetic, while feeling light and open.

Colourful kitchens can also be sleek and chic!

Forget all-white kitchens, this incredible example is sure to brighten and liven up your home! When we think about colourful kitchens we often picture the standard primary hues, and variations within the colour wheel. However, black and white cooking areas can look wonderfully bright, engaging and sophisticated too. This kitchen makeover has totally rejuvenated the ambience and aura within the room, consequently adding value and enjoyment to the dwelling it resides within.
