How to pick the perfect colour for your kitchen respray

The kitchen is the heart of every home and a space where the whole family gathers to eat and spend quality time together. So it’s no wonder that when it comes to choosing the perfect colour for your kitchen respray, most people find it a little daunting selecting the right shade. 

Whether you want to achieve a classic, timeless appearance or prefer a more bold, contemporary style, Sprayworks UK are here to offer a few pointers on how to make your kitchen look inviting and refreshed!

– Dark kitchen: If you desire an elegant, rich and luxurious ambiance, a darker coloured kitchen creates a sense of depth and warmth, especially if you pick earthy tones, like navy blue, slate grey, dark green or russet (reddish-brown). Plus, dark accents of colour contrast beautifully with white countertops or feature walls to brighten up the space and avoid making it feel enclosed and gloomy. 

– Light kitchen: White or lighter shades such as cream or pale green are a versatile choice for homeowners as they can blend with pretty much any other colour if you go for a two-toned scheme to balance things out. It makes the entire room feel more spacious, making it ideal for smaller kitchens. Moreover, using natural wood for furniture or flooring adds further visual interest and texture too. 

– Earthy tones: These are one of the most fashionable design trends at the moment and can give your kitchen a warm, rustic and homely vibe. Think about using terracotta, mustard, or olive green for example in order to spruce up all aspects of your kitchen from cabinets, storage, shelves, panels and wine racks!

– Flooring and lighting: When it comes to picking the perfect colour for your kitchen respray, it’s important to take into account the flooring and lighting. Darker floors will make a space feel more intimate, while lighter floors will help brighten things up. Similarly, the amount of natural light coming in can make a big difference, particularly if your kitchen is on the dark side. Therefore, you might want to think about additional light fixtures to illuminate the room. 

– Appliances: Another thing to keep in mind for your kitchen respray is appliances. Stainless steel goes well with most colours for a sleek, modern look. Alternatively, if you have black or white appliances, you might want to stick to a matching scheme. Lately, primary coloured appliances have increased in popularity and can be used as standalone statement pieces. 

No matter what colours you choose, make sure to test them out before committing to a full kitchen respray. This way, you can see how they look in different lighting conditions and make sure they’re exactly what you want.
