5 Painting Trends to Elevate Your Kitchen Aesthetic

Your kitchen is the heart of your home - it is a place where you do everything from cooking and meal prep to making memories with loved ones that will last a lifetime. This makes it a part of your living space that should be always kept in top-notch condition, both aesthetically and practically.

But how do you give your kitchen a new and refreshed look? It’s simple - a few cans of paint can help you achieve an exciting makeover.

There are many ways to elevate your kitchen aesthetic with paint. For instance, you can use a lighter colour palette to maintain a soothing and calm atmosphere throughout the space. Similarly, if you want to create a sense of warmth and intimacy, rich shades will bring your vision to life. Torn between the two? Don’t worry! We can help you to make the right pick.

Besides that, painting your kitchen doesn’t have to break the bank! By careful planning and thoroughly researching your options, you will be able to get the job done within your budget. However, if the expenses exceed your expectations, finance options like online loans will provide you with the necessary funds to complete your kitchen renovation without interruptions.

Get ready to make your pick and transform your kitchen!

1. Play with a Two-tone Colour Scheme


Why stick with one colour? When you have the freedom to pick many different colours, why not go wild? It's time to ditch the same old and boring single-colour scheme and create a combination of bold colours with a calmer one. Imagine mixing shades like cobalt blue, fiery red, or forest green with natural white, taupe or cream, which will transform your kitchen into something special.

One clever way to incorporate this idea is by painting your cabinets and furniture with bold colours and your kitchen walls with muted tones, or vice versa. This will make your cabinets look great by adding flair without overwhelming the entire kitchen. For instance, it is a common practice for kitchens in Northampton to have brightly coloured lower cabinets paired with upper neutral ones.

Lastly, to make the most of this approach, consider applying a lighter colour to the larger surfaces of your kitchen and use the darker shade for accents or smaller areas. A cohesive look can be achieved through this technique, which will transform your kitchen into a modern and stylish space.

2. Bring in the Calming Earthy Hues

When you think of nature-inspired or earthy tones, what colours come to your mind? If you’re anything like us, you’re probably thinking of beige and blue. Although these colours top everyone's favourite list, there is a wide range of earthy colours that you are yet to explore. It should not come as a surprise that these calming hues are trending at the moment as they have the power to create a sense of comfort and respite within your kitchen.

This timeless yet trending colour scheme includes soft creams, off-whites, and warm desert-inspired shades along with muddied greens, blues, and vibrant mineral shades, that will allow you to bring in the great outdoors. The calm aura of your kitchen can be further spiced up by adding a splash of mineral tones.

When it comes to infusing earthy colours into your kitchen, South West London painters and decorators specialise in adding earthy colours through accessories like rustic wooden shelves or clay pottery on display and more. These elements work wonders when combined with a wall painted with natural tones like brown or brick red, making your kitchen feel like a natural extension of the outside world.

3. Create A Pastel Paradise

For over a century, one colour palette that has consistently ruled over the world of kitchens is pastels. Pastel colours have maintained their popularity among millennials and are slowly taking over the world of kitchen design. Like earthy tones, the pastel scheme too consists of a wide variety of colours ranging from pale and light to bold and deep.

The beauty of this colour scheme lies in the fact that they are really versatile. There is a pastel colour scheme that will complement every type of kitchen whether it is modern stylish or classic traditional. Choosing the right shade will turn your kitchen into a timeless masterpiece.

You can go for a gentle and quiet style or mix them with bright colours to make an exciting difference. You can also simply add a touch of deeper colour by adding colourful accessories like utensils, small appliances, colourful flower vases or brightly coloured kitchen towels. On top of that, give your kitchen a quick and easy update, by replacing the handles of your cabinets with colourful ones.

4. Add Drama with Textures

Over the years we have seen homeowners choosing textured paints to give their kitchen an artistic upgrade. Textured finishes can add excitement and style to your kitchen walls and surfaces. They make your kitchen more welcoming and special, improving how it looks overall, in a way that a single, plain colour just can't do.

Textures help you to create something unique and achieve a one-of-a-kind result. There are different options available like brushed finishes, stucco effects, or even patterns that look like brick. When you use various textures, your kitchen gets a depth and richness that flat-painted surfaces can't provide.

Think about combining textured cabinets with smooth countertops or a textured backsplash with modern appliances to make an interesting combination that draws attention. Feel free to try out different textures – like wood, metal, or even a rustic stone look. This will give your kitchen a lot of variety in how it feels.

5. Custom Murals and Patterns

One kitchen paint trend that kitchen designers are wholeheartedly embracing is kitchen murals - yes, murals are still trending!. And why not? What makes these murals one of the best options for your kitchen is that they are available in various colours, prints and patterns. There is a mural type to suit everyone’s taste.

Alternatively, you can commission a mural, which can be either hand-painted or applied as wallpaper. Whatever option you choose, a commissioned mural will allow you to add a pop of personality to your kitchen.

Don’t be afraid to go all big and bold with an attractive kitchen mural. For instance, you could choose a bright digital painting of a landscape or a subtle centrepiece with an intricate design pulling in colours from different parts of the kitchen. Additionally, you can also use kitchen tiles and arrange them ingeniously to build a clever wall mural to give your kitchen a glamorous transformation.
