In the past, there may have been more of an all-or-nothing approach to colour in the kitchen – remember avocado green and burnt orange in the 1970s? The new palette is a bit more restrained, with pale blues, greys and darker, inky shades proving a big hit – though that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with kitchen colour, as you will see in the schemes below. Tone is important too – even within the grey family, warmer greys create a different feel from blue-based shades of slate.
Invest in a easy-wipe induction hob, sauce splashes can be a nightmare to get off a hob. In the past, cleaning involved lifting off the heavy metal pan supports and cleaning around the gas burners and temperature controls. But, invest in an induction hob and cleaning is made so much easier. Using electromagnetic waves to emit heat just to the pan surface, spillages won’t stick to the hob surface and all you’ll need is a damp cloth to wipe any stains away.
Choose vibrant orange, give your kitchen instant wow factor with vibrant pops of colour on the splashback and island. The island here has been cleverly designed not to be overly imposing, with its colour hidden on a panel below the counter, rather than all over the unit. The sculptural design of the stainless-steel extractor fan gives a contemporary edge.
