If you are looking to renovate your kitchen, one of the first steps is choosing the colour scheme. However, the choice may be a little more difficult than you expected. A little help can go a long way in choosing the right palette for your kitchen. The following are in trend this season, offering inspiration and ideas for your new kitchen.
The pantone colour of 2013 is emerald green. This lively hue comes in a wide range of shades and is perfect for adding a splash of colour in the kitchen, whether it be in a pot plant, kitchenware, a feature wall or wall tiles. Other colours in this palette include amethyst, sapphire and ruby. Use them as a feature colour or spread the hues generously for a poppy, vibrant room.
Softer, classic colours are always in trend. Think creamy caramel, ivory white and slate grey. Neutrals like this can be used liberally throughout a room. Consider lighter toned neutrals, as this will open up the area and make it brighter and more spacious, which is ideal for busy rooms like the kitchen.
Heat it up
Rustic and warm colours, such as red and brown, are perfect for the kitchen. Taking inspiration from autumn colouring and brightening it to a more spring hue will make it warming in the winter and fresh in summer. Match it will a small herb garden and touches of green to give a country feel.
Fresh and fruity
Think island sea blue, strawberry red and zesty orange for this colour palette. All of these colours will brighten and give life to an otherwise neutral kitchen. Much like the jewel tones, this should be used predominantly as a feature colour, rather than all over the room.
