Would you be brave enough to choose colour for your new kitchen cabinetry? Take a look at these vibrant kitchens for a spectrum of inspiration

When it comes to planning a new kitchen, we’ve always been told to choose something ‘safe’ to ensure that our homes keep their re-sale appeal for when it's time to move house. But with more homeowners than ever choosing to improve their existing homes rather than relocate, there’s a growing wave of colour confidence that is now extending into the kitchen.

In our chat with Sophie Robinson, the interior designer and stylist explained why she wants people to be bolder with colour in their homes. “I’m always championing people making bolder more confident choices in their homes and once you are confident in what you like you can make more considered purchases that you won’t just throw out because the ’trend’ has passed,” she explains.

If you’re colour curious, we’ve curated a rainbow of our favourite kitchen ranges and real spaces to help you find your way and inspire a colourful kitchen makeover.

This dreamy dark green kitchen from deVOL may not be the most saturated of colours, but teamed with a lighter green wall paint and plenty of potted plants, it really comes to life. 


Burbidge Otto Bespoke Teal Concrete

Dark blue is a common choice for modern kitchens and you won't have to look far to find a lot of beautiful examples that will convince you a blue kitchen is the way forward. This teal design from Burbidge packs a little more punch than the standard midnight shade, and we love how it has been tied in with simple matching accessories. 


Indigo Masterclass Hardwick Wisteria Mulberry Purple Kitchen Bench Seating

Representing indigo and violet in our rainbow of kitchens, purple may seem like a brave colour to choose from, but this kitchen by Masterclass shows it can be a charming alternative to blue when teamed with neutrals and country-style wooden finishes.
