Add personality to your space from accessories to splashbacks.
If you’re dreaming of a neutral kitchen then it’s always going to be a winner, as creams and whites are colours that will never go out of fashion.
However, it’s important to take on board these clever tips to ensure you don’t run the risk of an uninspiring or reserved design.
A small splash of colour, be it warm touches of natural materials or bold pops of appliances, are simple ways to elevate your kitchen and add personality.
1. Add warm texture with wood
Incorporating a warm natural material such as wood instantly lifts the space to create a cosy feeling.
Wood cladding up the wall is bang on trend and creates a Scandi indoor-outdoor vibe.
Top-tip: Add real timber worktops instead – but don’t clad the wall too else it will look too much.
2. Pops of colourful pastel accessories
Feminine colours such as pastels will instantly soften the space.
Accessorize with pops throughout by adding colourful soft furnishings, bar stools and lighting. You could even take it as far as a colourful splashback.
Top-tip: Pick pastels that evoke a retro feel such as blush pinks and spearmint greens to stay on-trend.
3. Go for luxe with contrasting statement worktops
Create the wow factor with a wrap-around Xena Quartz worktop in a dramatic contrasting colour.
This creates a real luxe look and accelerates the feel of your design from zero to hero! Go for a real marbled deep and dark colour such as this Titan design.
Top-tip: Add a quartz splashback or waterfall island design to create a sophisticated space.
4. Opt for a patterned floor to add personality
Add personality and fun with flooring to bring your design together.
Rather than tiles, vinyl is a more affordable option where you will see some playful patterns and fun designs on the market. Plus, you could swop your floor for a different design every few years for a different feel!
Top-tip: For smaller spaces, ensure the pattern runs diagonally to create the illusion of an elongated space.
5. Break up the white with metallic accents
Frame your white units by adding a metallic profile such as this Milano Ultra design.
By adding a glow of luxe metallic accents, it will create a glamourous feel that’s still minimal yet has bags of personality.
Don’t overkill the look by adding too many metallic accents. To soften it up, add a timber dining table.
Top tip: Add lighting underneath your worktops to ensure your precious metallic accents glow!
6. Highlight your feature units
Create a playful design by incorporating a pop of colour on bespoke feature pieces in your kitchen such as an island or a dresser like this bespoke Wren design.
Or why not opt for a two-tone combination by colouring your lower units and keeping your wall units neutral.
Top-tip: If colour isn’t your thing, then opt for different neutral shades such as Pebble Grey or Taupe married with white.
So, what are you waiting for… get splashing that colour to bring your space to life and to enhance your dream kitchen space!
