Does your Kitchen Colour tell the story of your life?

Some people’s kitchens are a bit like other people’s wardrobes, full of surprises and fascinating. There once was a time when home colours were for life. So much so, the term “bespoke” didn’t need to exist — everything was bespoke before the advent of modern mass-manufacturing techniques.

Modern makers, however, are changing the face of customised home decor by creating fresh, functional kitchens with highly personal touches. Everything from the depth of the drawers to the number of wine bottle slots and the shade of the paint can be adjusted to your whim.

Many people shy away from colour in their homes – especially their kitchens, instead opting for a medley of creams and beiges. But, by being brave and injecting some colour into your cooking HQ, your kitchen could soon exude energy and vivaciousness. Mulberry Woods developed by Saran Developers are a highly prominent and spacious 4BHK apartments located off Sarjapur Main Road with state-of-the-art facilities, each with kitchen providing you the right amount of natural light required for your healthy living.

Paint the town red –

Nothing spices up a rich, gourmet kitchen quite like a playful pop of red. If you want to bring some bold shades into your kitchen, but are feeling nervy about jumping in feet-first, consider introducing a fun wall of colour into the room. This will instantly transform the heart of your home into a fun family focus – you may even want to get the kids involved with the painting itself.

A fresh lick of paint in a room which is often overlooked in the hubbub of home life can help rework a muted colour scheme and create a focal point of the kitchen. What’s more, paying your walls some much-needed attention can be a quick-fix for a kitchen in need of a cheap and cheerful facelift.

Fresh-Squeezed Lemonade -

It’s true that yellow is an energetic, eye-catching hue that can easily uplift moods and inspire, especially in the kitchen. The yellow, mixed with white cabinets, coffered ceilings and a soft backsplash, emits an airy feel that would make anyone feel right at home.

A splash of colour -

For a bright idea to reinvent your kitchen, it’s worth considering installation of a coloured glass splashback. Again, this is only a small detail but can make a nice change from traditional tiles. Think acidic citrus yellow or a vibrant fuchsia to guard your walls against the hands of messy chefs (they’re wipe-clean surfaces!). This simple addition can transform your kitchen from drab to fab, and create a feature wall if you are not keen on getting handy with a paintbrush.

Eat Your Greens –

In most room settings, green is known for being a cool, soothing colour that can easily bring comfort and calmness. The crisp, apple-green hue and natural wood ceiling planks can mesh beautifully with the sleek, stainless steel cabinetry and appliances while still maintaining an organic look and feel around the room.

Go retro –

Whilst a full kitchen revamp may not be on the cards, investing in a statement piece of kitchen furniture such as a stove, fridge or oven in a bold colour (think ruby red or a pastel shade) can add some va-va-voom to an otherwise bland room. This is especially wise if you’ve been meaning to replace your fridge for a while now.

There's a variety of coloured retro-style kitchen appliances on the market to tickle your decorating taste buds. To really finish off the look, purchase a set of pots and pans in a matching hue.
