More of us than ever are focusing on revamping our homes during the lockdowns as a result of the pandemic. Spending more time at home means you’ve got the opportunity to work out what you really want from your property and the different spaces you use every day.
Kitchens are often functional and, in many cases, people stick to neutral colour schemes, with whites and greys favoured shades.
However, there is no reason why you can’t inject some colour into this part of your home and Dezeen recently shared some advice on how to do just that. The publication picked out a selection of colourful kitchens to give you some inspiration.
One simple way to do just that is to opt for colourful kitchen tiles in London, or wherever you live. This is a good way to introduce some vibrant splashes to your cooking area. Bright splashbacks behind sinks and cookers, for instance, can really pop in any kitchen.
As well as colour, you can also introduce patterns through your tiles, with the publication highlighting one kitchen design where the tiles, in shades of blue, were laid in a herringbone pattern.
However, when you’re undertaking a kitchen renovation make sure you do your research and think carefully about what you want and need from your space.
DIY Week recently shared research from Confused.com which revealed that Brits spend an average of £5,219 on revamping their kitchens, which means it’s not a cheap renovation project to undertake.
It is, however, the most popular home renovation to carry out, with some 96 per cent of Brits stating that they have revamped their kitchens at some point.
