The Kitchen Craftsmen Guide to Adding Colour to Your Kitchen

Is your home feeling a little dull during the shorter days and darker weather? As the heart of your home, your kitchen can majorly impact how the rest of your home feels. Adding colour to your kitchen is a great way to make your home feel more lively and a little more like you. Even small pops of your favourite flavour can help bring a dull and lifeless kitchen back from the brink!

Kitchen Craftsmen are the experts in designing unique kitchens, so no matter how you want to add colour to your kitchen, our team will have a creative solution for you.

Look at colourful cabinetry and interesting lighting

Updating your kitchen cabinetry is a great way to bring colour to the heart of your home. Kitchen Craftsmen have a wide range of colourful and quirky cabinetry options to suit your personality and your kitchen needs. From colourful laminate in your favourite colour to something a little more textural, like fluted panelling, to create the illusion of light and shadows – there is sure to be something that will take your fancy. 


Carefully placed lighting is another great way to add or emphasise existing colours in your kitchen. Strip lighting can highlight colourful cabinetry, or be used to add its own colourful accents. Adding fun and flirty light fittings or shades can also help brighten things up and really showcase your personal style.

Choose fun accessories

If you’re not ready to commit, why not start small? Coloured glassware, plates, and fruit bowls, or even feature a colourful crockpot that stays out on your stovetop can help liven your space. If you have an open-plan living space, adding artwork to your dining area is also a simple and cost-effective way to add colour to your kitchen area. By opting for smaller, colourful features in your kitchen, you can add colour without committing to an entire kitchen renovation.

Venturing away from the typical stainless steel or black tapware and using bronze or gold tapware is another way to add colourful accents to your home. This way, you can subtly add brighter features, without committing to super out-there colours or redo your whole kitchen.

During the planning stages, your designer will help you with recommendations to ensure you get great colours and functionality from your fixtures. 

Create the perfect splashback

There are endless options when it comes to choosing a splashback. Your splashback takes up a fair portion of your kitchen, so it’s important to choose something that you will love. They also provide the perfect opportunity to add some colour to your kitchen. You can choose from colourful tiles, sleek stone, or even customised glass that can double as an art feature. No matter what your dream splashback looks like, our team will be excited to help you choose the perfect option for you.

Your kitchen can make your house feel like home, and the expert Kitchen Craftsmen designers are here to help you choose the perfect, colourful, solutions for your kitchen. Visit one of our five showrooms to chat with our expert team.
