Generally, when we think of interior design, we think about what colour to paint our bedrooms, what kind of furnishings to have in the living room and whether or not we need mirrors to lighten up our hallway.
But rarely do our kitchens get a look in when we have a home makeover; they tend to be functional and flat with the odd flash of colour. These days though, it’s easy to customise your kitchen with the colours that you love – there’s a whole range of bright and colourful kitchen appliances which will help bring your kitchen up to date and add a little personality.
To that end, here are our top picks for colourful kitchen accessories.
Red is associated with passion and fire, so if you love to cook up a storm in your kitchen, why not opt for some vibrant red appliances? Morphy Richards does a fantastic range of red appliances, so you don’t have to worry about matching your shades of red either. Get the basics; a toaster and a kettle and then, for the more adventurous, try a red slow cooker for some tasty, hearty meals. We also love this Classique Tefal Kettle with its chic, curved design. Meanwhile, coffee lovers can sip their fresh, ground coffee in style thanks to this Krups Dolce Gusto coffee maker.
If you fancy something a little different then try on a little purple for size. Refreshing, modern and pretty too, purple is a great option for your kitchen.
Double up on some purple tones with this Swan kettle and 4-slice toaster set – pretty and saves a few pennies too. Add a bit of colour to your microwave meals with this Swan mirror door microwave in purple – also handy in case you think you’ve smeared something on your face, because most of us don’t keep mirrors in the kitchen!
If you fancy something that’s bright and breezy and will give your kitchen a real lift, then green could be the colour for you. It might not seem like the most likely of colours for your kitchen but we’re huge fans of this Breville traditional kettle and 4 slice toaster which will easily brighten up the most dull of kitchen surfaces. If you’re green in another sense and want to save money on your bills then check out this Phillips Energycare iron which is perfect for tackling that huge pile or ironing – whether you do it in the kitchen or not.
