There are plenty of standard options when it comes to designing a new kitchen, but what if you love colour? What if you want something outside of the box? Something different? Well, adding colour to your kitchen is a great way to add some character. This can be done in many ways.

If you’re not ready to commit to coloured cabinetry, you might choose a bold coloured tile or glass splashback for a touch of colour. Or select an amazing colourful wallpaper for your walls. If you’re feeling really brave run that colour up onto the ceiling.

The range of laminates available is still very neutral, but there are still some amazing warm blues or a variety of timbers that work wonderfully for base cabinets. Alternatively, you can select any colour your heart desires with a 2pak paint finish.

For a dramatic look, you can’t go past black or even a sunshine yellow, like the one from Doherty Design Studio. Wouldn’t that make you smile every morning? This can be balanced with appliances, hardware and an amazing lighting design to reduce potential heaviness in the room.

Feature lighting and styling accents can then balance the space and define the ultimate style you’re trying to achieve.
