How To Select Your Kitchen Colour Schemes With Taste

If you plan on having a modern kitchen in your house chances are that you will have to select your kitchen colour schemes for the finished product.

When designing a new kitchen the colours can be on every component:

  • The doors,
  • Bench top whether it’s marble, Ceasarstone, Formica, timber or other materials
  • Splashback (glass, tiles, aluminium, mirror, marble)
  • Sides of the cabinets, island
  • Feature doors
  • Kitchen lighting
  • Kitchen appliances

To help you select your kitchen colour schemes quickly we have listed below some contrasting examples of houses recently built. We hope these compositions will assist you in narrowing down your kitchen colour schemes based on what you like and what you don’t.

If you already have pieces of furniture you might want to think about how they will complement your kitchen colours. Curtain and blind colours are also to be taken into consideration in your final choice.

You might want to use colour charts and colour schemes from Dulux (you can get them for free at your local Bunnings) to help you choose the general colour scheme for the interior of your house. We found their colour brochures quite handy and of good taste.

To compose your kitchen colour scheme, we’ve found the following steps helpful:

  1. Select a general scheme you like (white, brown, red, blue, etc.)
  2. Pick up to two complementary colours to give accent to your colour scheme (more than two can become confusing)
  3. The bench top you select can play the role of an accent colour
  4. If you think of having your kitchen, vanities and laundry cupboards made by the same kitchen company try to select different colour schemes for each function so your kitchen remains a special feature in the house
  5. Take into consideration your floor covering (tile, timber or laminate) and walls

Finally you might want to use a cool tool available at Studiom.com.au. This tool allows you to check out your different kitchen colour schemes. We used it while designing our new kitchen and found it handy to have a feel of how different colours would work, or not, with each other.

Just go to Studiom.com.au and click on Envisage then click on Kitchen. From there you can select a kitchen style, change colours of different elements such as doors, benchtops, splashbacks and more. I find it helps to see on screen how different colours combine to make a unique scheme.
