Brighten up, breathe life into a stark white kitchen with eye-popping colours and fluid shapes. Canary-yellow accessories complement the pink and red chairs, while accessories pick out these colours, too. The rest of the scheme is white, but the colourful touches lift it into adventurous territory.
The accent colour is as popular as ever and here yellow comes into its own, particularly against darker greys. A great approach is to go for a base colour then use an accent shade to highlight areas or to add a vibrant splash. When choosing an accent colour or a mixed palette, you can’t go wrong by following colour theory. Complementary colours are opposite each other on the colour wheel and will create a strong contrast with a vibrant feel, while colours that are near each other on the wheel will give your scheme a more relaxed vibe.
Leave the dishes… to the dishwasher, cooking can be therapeutic, but it’s not so much fun facing all those dirty dishes and pans after the meal. This is where dishwashers come into their own, but in a small kitchen you may not think there’s room to fit one. Beko has tackled this problem and introduced slick slimline models. The cutlery basket is removable and the plate supports and cup racks are foldable, so you can change the layout to suit your needs. And what’s more, all of Beko’s built-in dishwashers can tackle a full load in just 30 minutes.
