If you intend on renovating or buying an ex display kitchen, then here are some ways you can add a pop of vibrancy to your kitchen without going OTT...
Gone are the days of kitchens having to be sterile, plain rooms in the home – there’s a growing trend towards introducing more colour into this part of our home and the best part is that you don’t have to go crazy with a paint brush to do it.
The Independent recently highlighted some of the ways in which you can add a pop of vibrancy to your kitchen without going overboard.
They could be worth considering if you’re going to buy an ex display kitchen as part of a wider revamp project for this area of your home, and want some ideas about how to bring it all together and make it stand out.
Adding colour to your kitchen is about using accents – and that means that bold shades work well, especially if the rest of the space is relatively neutral. The first thing to do is decide what shade you’d like to incorporate.
Once you’ve done this, you need to work out how much of it you want to feature in your kitchen. For example, do you want
to invest in an appliance, like a cooker or fridge freezer, in a vibrant shade of red, or would you rather pick up a brightly coloured toaster?
Co-founder of Big Chill Orion Creamer told the news provider that if you’re planning to use one colour across multiple elements, it’s best to pick a shade of green, yellow or blue.
Another option, if you’re feeling a little bolder, is to choose an island counter in a vibrant colour, but have the rest of the kitchen surfaces in a neutral shade.
If you’re thinking about selling your home in the not too distant future, it’s worth bearing in mind that updating the kitchen can be one of the best ways to add value to your property, according to research from the Federation of Master Builders.
However, if you want to sell, you may want to keep your colourful accents to things that can be easily changed so as not to put off potential buyers.
