Whether it’s plain white, sophisticated black, or neutral tones, your kitchen colour scheme is one of the most important things to decide on. And with a wider range of colour options and style choices than ever before, no wonder it’s tricky to make that decision. But here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design experts. And we know all about what works, and what doesn’t, when it comes to mixing colours and styles in the kitchen. As a result, we have produced this guide to the considerations for your kitchen colour scheme.
What is your kitchen style?
Choosing a style for your kitchen should be something you do before settling on a colour scheme. This is because different kitchen styles lead to different complimentary colour schemes. For example, a contemporary kitchen can really stand out in strong, dark, colours, while a rustic kitchen will naturally take on the neutral tones of timber and stone. Whichever style you choose, your decision will influence the range of colours available for your worktops or cabinets.
Range of finish options
Kitchens can be finished in a variety of ways. From high gloss, typical of a contemporary kitchen, to a matt finish found in traditional or shaker kitchens, the finish itself can influence the colour choices.
High gloss acrylic, found in contemporary kitchens, has the largest range of colours available. Moving from pastels to strong and bright colours, all the way through to monochrome, all colours are available with an acrylic finish.
However, a rustic kitchen filled with lot of hard wood will not have the same range of colour options for cabinets and worktops. In fact, in most cases, the natural wood is left natural and untreated. This is part of the desirable aesthetic rustic kitchens seek to create.
Finally, one of the biggest considerations for your kitchen colour scheme should be your own preference. After all, you will be living with the kitchen and using it day in day out, so you need to be happy. There is no reason why a contemporary kitchen needs to be colourful, just because it can be. And there is no reason why colour cannot be added to a rustic or traditional kitchen.
Tiles and accessories are a great way to add to the colour scheme of your kitchen, without compromising the style or the finish.
