How To Choose The Best Colour For Your Kitchen

Over the last few years, a popular choice for a number of clients has been the range of paints offered by Farrow & Ball. Famous for their quirky names such as Dead salmon and Elephant’s breath, this range does possess qualities of opacity and density which have made them a popular choice.

An alternative range worth considering are the latest colours from Fired Earth. This company also produce a stunning range of tiles which can be coordinated with the colour scheme.

The main elements which will have a direct influence on the choice of colour will be the work surface, the floor and, most importantly, the natural light in the room which changes through the day. A further aspect to consider is the effect of artificial light on the colour which in itself can vary depending on the type of lighting used.

Before embarking on selecting the final finishes for the kitchen it may be worth creating a mood board. This can be viewed in different areas of the room, and be seen at different times of the day. Most manufacturers offer small sample pots which can help prevent costly mistakes.

A good starting point when choosing your kitchen paint colour is to think about the overall feel for the room; are you looking for a clean and fresh approach which would involve the use of neutral tones, or would you like to add some drama to the scheme and make a statement using stronger tones? This approach might include using two different colours, a light finish on the wall units, with something darker and more dramatic on the base cabinets.

The major advantage of a painted kitchen is the opportunity to have a complete change after a couple of years. Add in a change of handles, and a major transformation can be achieved at very little cost compared to a completely new kitchen.
