So, you’ve got your heart set on a white kitchen. We don’t blame you. This standout colour has many benefits, as described in our previous blog post (make sure you give it a read). Or perhaps you have just installed a white kitchen in your home and are overwhelmed by all the… err… white!

This can happen. One shade in the kitchen can leave the space looking devoid of personality or originality. With this in mind, here at Kitchen Warehouse, we thought we would give you some ideas on how to add a touch of colour to a plain white space. You may be winning with white, but is there a way to add that final piece of the jigsaw to your kitchen design that you may be missing?

Adding a standout backsplash

One of the easiest places to add more colour to your kitchen is through the backsplash. This is usually the area situated behind the sink or cooker and is there to protect the wall from any splashes that may occur whilst washing up or cooking. In spite of its primarily practical use, you can use this area to your advantage and adorn it with an original design or colourway – something that you wouldn’t necessarily use for your whole kitchen.

Here you can use more standout colours such as a pop of red, yellow or blue to completely contrast your white kitchen units, making a striking feature and adding personality to the room.

Choose your appliances carefully

9 times out of 10 your appliances are going to sit on your kitchen worktop for everyone to see, right? So why not give their appearance a little more thought before you purchase your next one? The colour of your appliances can go a long way towards the overall look and theme of your kitchen, without you even realising it. After all, appliances are available in multiple colours with this exact reason in mind, so be sure to take advantage of it!

Whether black, rose gold or just plain silver takes your fancy, these colours can really contrast well with the white that beams from your kitchen doors. So the next time your kettle, toaster or blender needs replacing, give the colour a little thought and you may be onto a winner with your kitchen design…

Maybe marble?

So, you’ve just completely fallen in love with the colour white for your kitchen space and have purchased a white high gloss kitchen. With this in mind, you may only want to add a subtle hint of colour to complement this new primary colour in your kitchen. Switching up your worktops to a clean, modern and sleek marble could be the answer.

Marble is one of the most versatile kitchen finishes and is available in many shades. Subtly veined, it could give you just the hint of colour you’re looking for to add to your kitchen. Marble also makes your kitchen naturally look more modern and sophisticated, with its sharp and trendy features ensuring it will stick around for the long term.
