Open-plan kitchen? Create definition with colour

Use a contrasting colour scheme to create a striking look in the kitchen.

A good kitchen should encourage equal amounts of socialising, entertaining and, of course, eating, so it’s important to create a space where friends and family feel at ease. Bold, bright colours are a fantastic way to mark the kitchen as a place to have fun, as well as a clever way to add definition to an open-plan space.

For maximum impact, combine blocks of contrasting colours, like bubblegum pink, tropical tangerine or vivid yellow, with a neutral colour scheme. When used on key focal areas, such as on dividing walls or kitchen plinths, these bursts of bold colour will not only add definition; they’ll imbue the whole room with an upbeat energy – perfect for fun and lively mealtimes.
