5 Tips for Choosing a Colour Scheme for your Kitchen

Choosing a colour scheme for your kitchen is arguably the most important decision you will make when renovating. There are certain colours that simply do not complement each other or your kitchen’s size and appliances- therefore, it is vital that you make the right choice. Our team at Home Concept are here to help.

How to Choose the Perfect Colour Scheme for Your Kitchen</h2

Here are our top tips to assist you in choosing the best colour scheme for your kitchen:

1. Understand Colour Palettes

The most important thing to educate yourself on, when re-painting a kitchen, is how a colour palette works and how various colours compliment each other when used together. This is made super easy with the use of a colour wheel. The simplest way to use a colour wheel to find complimentary colours is to simply find colours that are opposite each other. Once you have decided on a few combinations that you like, investigate their different shades to find one you love.

2. Choose Your Cabinet Colours First

The first decision you need to make when choosing a colour scheme for your kitchen, is what cabinets you are going to have. Cabinets take up a large percentage of a kitchen’s visual space, therefore you are going to want to decide on the material and hardware to use as a foundation to base your colour choices on.

3. Work with Your Kitchen’s Size

It is important to consider your kitchen’s size and natural lighting before deciding on a colour scheme. Kitchens that are small and narrow, and do not have a lot of natural light, require a colour scheme that brightens the space, which will make it more welcoming and will appear significantly bigger. Think colours that incorporate elements of white, such as yellows, creams and greys.

4. Decide on Your Kitchen’s Appliances

Appliances should have a strong influence on your choice in colours, as they are used to project a certain theme or style. Big appliances, such as fridges, stoves and dishwashers have the biggest impact on a kitchen’s colour scheme. An easy way to ensure they work together, is to match your appliances with your cabinets, if you are going for black colours, you may want to go with a lighter colour on the walls for balance.

5. Choose a Theme

Choosing a theme will help you narrow things down to the styles and designs that you like. Whilst you don’t need to commit to a specific theme, finding one that you like will potentially assist you in selecting the colours. Popular themes you can look at for inspiration are farmhouse, beach and Italian.
