Make A Splash With These Unique Kitchen Colour Combinations

Step out of the monochromatic zone and liven up your kitchen with some fun and unique colour combinations…

Two-tone and multi-tone kitchens are a standout design trend right now. One look at these kitchens and you will see that incorporating more than one colour into your design can add serious visual interest. The use of bright colours can make a small kitchen seem more spacious. And with a fresh coat of paint you can keep within budget for a small-scale kitchen redesign with standout results – pick your favourite colour combinations and get going! Through our research and our love of surprising colour combinations we know that pink and green are a strong colour pairing, shades of blue look cool and sleek, primary colours pop and yellow can be partnered with most tones and will always liven up a kitchen. Top tip: Keep the darker colour at the bottom – using a darker shade up high can make the kitchen seem dim and cramped – not the effect we’re going for.

PERFECT PRIMARIES

With playful design, comes playful colours. The art-deco inspired shapes in this Dries Otten kitchen make it an uplifting room to be in and so one can afford to toy around with fun colour options. The baby blue and tomato red combination is unabashedly fabulous. www.driesotten.ie

A LIGHT TOUCH

Sometimes a beautifully sanded wooden exterior like this honey-toned, Douglas fir cabinetry is the minimal look that makes a two-tone kitchen all the more effective. This minimal and elegant, Scandi-style kitchen boasts clever use and placement of yellow paint – keeping the kitchen light, bright and airy. @glassette

PINK AND GREEN ALWAYS

Disclaimer: This is a tiled two-tone kitchen – but pink and green is always a feast for the eyes! The subtle primrose yellow on the walls ties it all together. Add it to the moodboard. www.wisedesignremodel.com

WARM AND NATURAL

The combination of warm ochre yellow and deep teal create a sophisticated look in this contemporary kitchen. The walnut open shelves add a clever sense of depth and can be a powerful focal point in the kitchen with the orchestrated inclusion of ornaments or crockery. The intricately tiled splashback and brass fixtures complete the modern look. www.nakedkitchens.com

BEACHY FEEL

This deVol kitchen makes it clear that it is possible to incorporate a beautiful two-tone design in a traditional style kitchen and with free standing furniture. This Scullery yellow prep table with copper worktop is a show-stopping addition to this kitchen but still maintains its beachy vibe. www.devolkitchens.co.uk

COOL VIBE

This O’Connors of Drumleck Kitchen shows the power of paint in a kitchen redesign. This bespoke scheme has been custom crafted from solid tulip wood with a hand painted Farrow and Ball finish. The rich royal blue against the country white creates a cool, calm and collected effect. The blue makes the island a definite main feature and naturally becomes a meeting place for family and friends. www.oconnorsofdrumleck.ie

OMBRE OPULANCE

This minimal cabinetry stands on its own two feet, with no adornments necessary. The ombre effect certainly brings the multicolour kitchen trend into a league of its own. And can we take a moment for that blue marble splashback and counter situation? @yaroslav.priadka

BLUSHING BEAUTFUL

“A riot of pink and purple, this compact kitchen combines strong colours and innovative storage solutions to make a stunning space,” say the designers at Naked Kitchens. This kitchen comes alive with a vibrant blend of natural bramble and pink tones, infusing the space with energy and character. www.nakedkitchens.com

FABULOUS FIRE PALETTE

Part of a modern tin barn redesign, this kitchen oozes character and soul. The space undoubtedly centres around the orange island which is a bright and beautiful focal point and a welcome sight for any visitor. The cabinetry, walls and ceiling painted in the cool charcoal grey accompanies the orange fabulously and the quartz splashback ties this kitchen together. www.middleton-bespoke.co.uk

HERO NEUTRALS

Achieving the two-tone look doesn’t have to be a wild change from the neutrals or pastels you already have. You can stick with natural shades like the Farrow and Ball Light Grey and Picture Gallery Red seen here. But remember – it is always best to have the darker colour on the lower level.  www.farrow-ball.com

FUNKY AND FRESH 

This funky combination of baby pink and black creates a feeling of opulence and luxury in this Rathfarnham kitchen. The metallic effect of the tiled splashback marries the two lines of cabinetry perfectly. If you are going to add colour, why not jazz it up? www.inspace.ie

This is a great colour combination – especially if you are not ready for crazy colours yet. See tips for designing an L-shaped space; www.siemens-home.bsh-group.com.
