Creating A Kitchen That Stands Out

5 October 2022

Kitchens come in different shapes, sizes, and styles, so it seems unnecessary to decorate your kitchen the same way as everyone else. If you’re looking to create a kitchen that stands out, then follow these 3 top tips.

Kitchen colours

Be bold with your décor

The most obvious way to make your kitchen stand out is to choose a bold colour palette. You can easily make your kitchen more attractive by introducing it to a few bright stools, accessorises, plants or even by painting the walls a colour that will truly make your cabinets pop.

If you are redesigning your kitchen, then you can go one step further by selecting an unorthodox colour for your cabinet doors. Avoid neutral tones such as white, porcelain, cashmere, and shades of grey as they are among the most popular kitchen décor colours. Instead, make a statement with our paint to order options which includes bold but stylish colours such as Vintage Pink, Forrest Green, and Marine Blue.

Kitchen Shelving

Be open with your storage

It is a trend in modern kitchen design to create a streamlined, uncluttered space where the contents of your cabinets remain hidden in dynamic storage solutions. Although that may excite many homeowners who are a fan of contemporary kitchens, it may be suitable for those who seek a kitchen that stands out.

Open shelving is a convenient and stylish alternative that allows you to be more expressive with your storage. Having all your utensils, crockery, spices etc., at an arm’s length is a great time saver when preparing meals and navigating a busy kitchen. Open shelving is also an outlet for creativity as you can decorate and organise the contents to suit your taste.

Kitchen Lights

Be creative with your lighting

It can be easy to forget about the importance of not only great lighting in a kitchen, but the lighting fixtures themselves. First, make sure that you are maximising the natural light entering the room as this is a great way to really accentuate the bold colours we discussed earlier.

As for artificial lighting, both the type of the fixture and the colour of the light itself play an important role in making your kitchen stand out. Hanging kitchen light fixtures really draw the attention of a room and come in all shapes, sizes, and style. If you’re going for the sophisticated look, then under cabinet lightning can help create the mood you desire. On the other hand, neon lighting can be utilised to add more personality into your home and is available in a variety of bright colours.
