The kitchen is the heart of your home, and the colour you choose can make a huge difference to the whole feel of the house around it. Whether you’re building new, renovating or just wanting to breathe new life into the space, the options for kitchen colour schemes can be both daunting and exciting.

Here are some of our recommendations on the best kitchen colour schemes that will help you transform your kitchen.
Timeless vs On Trend
Trendy fashion choices may seem like a great idea at the time, but five to ten years down the track you may find yourself having to repaint or remodel again. Kitchen splashbacks, tiles and paint are a great example where you can often date a kitchen by the choices that were made when it was last renovated.
Choosing neutral kitchen colour schemes that are timeless and classic doesn’t necessarily mean boring.
Whites, off-whites, greys and warm browns can provide a great backdrop that you can pair with bright pops of colour in kitchen accessories. There are many kitchen appliances available in modern and highly fashionable colour combinations that will really make your kitchen stand out. Pairing a neutral wall paint choice with a natural stone, warm toned marble or a classic timber benchtop will make your kitchen feel warm, modern and inviting, while still retaining that timeless look and feel.
Combining dark and light tones
Choosing kitchen colour schemes that contrast black and white can instantly add class and modern sleekness to your kitchen space. Break up that tuxedo look with window treatments, appliances, indoor plants and stylish lighting solutions and you’ll have a space that adds a touch of style and glamour to your whole home.
From glossy black benchtops to matte black cabinetry and tiles, there doesn’t need to be any such thing as plain old black and white when you’re looking to combine light and dark tones. But use black with caution; too much can be overwhelming and close the room in by making it look too dark. Use texture and contrasting colours to create a space that is visually interesting and spacious, no matter what the size of the kitchen you are working with.
Bring the colour
There’s no need to play it safe when the right colour can create a unique and appealing kitchen that brings energy and life into the space. Choosing carefully where to weave in colour can help you create a kitchen that is modern, fun and a pleasure to spend time in.
Combining a neutral toned paint and tile kitchen colour scheme with coloured cabinetry or an island is a great way to revitalise the heart of your home. Accent colours in shelving, tiles or corner areas is an effective way to express yourself with colour without going overboard and creating a colour bomb. Decorative splashbacks can also lift the space behind the oven and benchtop, and create a focal point that draws the eye as soon as you enter the kitchen, without overwhelming the room.

Choosing the right kitchen colours schemes can be overwhelming and talking to the experts can help you make the right choice that will help turn your house into a home.
