While an all-white kitchen can look sleek and stylish, it also has the potential to seem stark and clinical. A simple splash of colour, however, can brighten up and add warmth to an all-white kitchen. Here are our top tips for adding colour to a white kitchen.
Make a Splash
Splashbacks come in a wonderful array of bright hues, eye-catching patterns and modern materials. Choose a bright red or black acrylic splashback for an affordable and attractive feature in a white kitchen. Mosaic tiles in Mediterranean blues, bottle greens and purples enliven the room and can tie together colours used in other living spaces. Or you could opt for a contemporary LED splashback or even a striking image printed on a glass splashback. Find splashbacks

Hit the Bench
An all-white kitchen doesn’t have to mean all-white surfaces. An easy way to enhance the space is with colourful benchtops or a bright kitchen island. Laminate is a budget-friendly and versatile surface that comes in a rainbow of contemporary colours. A neutral hue such as clay, eggshell or mushroom adds depth without drama. At the higher end of the scale, granite and stone look classic and contemporary and are ideal for benchtops and the kitchen island. A cobalt blue slab looks lovely against contrasting white surfaces. Or if you’re brave enough, bright yellow, blue or orange bench tops will pack a punch and become a real talking point! Chat with your local kitchen benchtops

A cheap and cheerful way to add colour to a white kitchen is with new appliances. Many brands now sell kettles, toasters, mixers and other small appliances in glossy pinks, purples, blues, yellows, reds and black. Against a white canvas, these items really pop and add interest without breaking the bank.
Another way to brighten a white kitchen is to look up. At the lights, that is! A statement shade, gorgeous glass chandelier or even a copper pendant light is a simple solution for lightening and brightening the kitchen without going overboard. Your local lighting
expert will walk you through your options.
These are just a few simple tips for transforming an all-white kitchen into a room that pops with a hint of colour. Simply add a vase of bright blooms and your colourful kitchen is ready for year-round enjoyment.
