Kitchen Paint Colours

Inspiration & Tips

Painting your kitchen is the easiest way to give this hub of your home an update – without the hassles of renovations.

Kitchen Cabinets Colour Trends

While the trend of white kitchens isn't leaving us just yet, deeper neutral paint colours and the popularity of wood cabinetry are certainly on the rise.

But it's not just wooden cupboards on their own - add a contemporary touch to your kitchen's decor by combining painted cabinetry along with wood.

Choosing a Paint Colour for Kitchen Walls

Look to the colours in the fixed decor finishes in your kitchen – cabinets, countertops, backsplash, flooring – for inspiration for your kitchen wall paint colour.

A rich hue on kitchen walls contrasts but balances fresh, white cabinets.
