Retaining the style of your home in your fitted kitchen design can save you money and maintain the traditional look of your home.
Kitchen light source
The colour scheme of your kitchen is influenced by the amount of light the kitchen receives. If you have a poorly lit kitchen, then lighter colours are recommended. Light colours tend to enhance the light in the kitchen hence making you have brighter surfaces to work on when in the kitchen. They also make the room feel brighter and larger. If you have a small kitchen, bright lights can create the feeling of a large room within a smaller space.
Which way your kitchen faces

The quality of light depends on where your kitchen is facing, for example, if the kitchen faces north, southwest or east, then the effect of light in the kitchen will be different. The light quality affects the way your eyes see the colours, hence it affects the light conditions in the room. The quality of light in a room can change the tone as well as the mood of the room. North facing rooms will tend to have limited but consistent bright lighting. East facing rooms tend to receive morning light, but they lose the light as the day progresses. West facing rooms receives light in the afternoon, but in the morning, they are blocked from the light source hence they receive a limited amount of lights. Due to changes in the quality of light entering the rooms, the perception of colour keeps changing from morning to the evening in different rooms depending on where they face.
The undertone of a colour is not recognised at once. It is the colour you see after several types of colours have been blended in the painting process. If you harmonise the undertones, the kitchen colours will stand out. But, if the combination fails, then you will face a failure in your coloured fitted kitchen.

If you have a south-facing room where natural light is a plenty, then warm or even cool undertones can work well for the kitchen room. If the room does not receive a lot of sunlight, then warm colours will work well because they will prevent your room from feeling cold or dark.

Any colour providing it’s Cream, White or Grey Kitchen
Remember a time when the major European kitchen brands came to the UK with a dazzling array of colours. Brilliant yellow, lime green, post box red, azure blue – the colour palette was endless.
At the time the typical UK kitchen was a rather conservative white, cream or timber effect with contrasting worktops. Now it would appear that the kitchen industry has had a rethink and we have abandoned the colourful kitchens and have gone full circle.
Open up any kitchen or home improvement magazine and you can’t fail to notice that white, cream, duck egg blue and grey are now the dominant colours for the fabulous kitchens. The brilliant splash of colour is provided by the appliances and accessories. Range cookers, fridge, appliances, splash backs, tiling – this is now where the key colour is contained.
To accentuate these islands of colour, the use of natural light and mood lighting is now almost an essential in the kitchen. To let in natural light the advent of the Bi-fold door, floor to ceiling windows and the roof lantern has revolutionised the way we flood light into the kitchen. For kitchens where space is at a premium and natural light is not possible we create a more subtle mood lighting effect by inserting lights under cupboards, floor level plinth lighting, down lighters, up lighters and spots.
The new wave of neutral kitchens act as a foil for these colour and light splashes, producing a calmer more reserved environment. A place to spend time, to sit and read, to iron, watch TV – whatever you do in the space the Kitchen is the central structure.
Although we are almost apologetic in our acceptance that the dazzling colour has gone from our kitchens, what we have substituted should not be underestimated. We refer to these colours as white, cream, duck egg blue and grey – the reality is that there are now countless variations of these basic colours. No one really understood how many variations were possible for a grey and white kitchen until the designers got to work. Today you could chose endless variations, whites with a subtle hind of an under colour, greys from dark and moody to the lightest of tints. Each effect is different and the use of colours creates the effect.
For many homeowners who are creating specific areas within their home, a gloss painted kitchen offers a really individual touch where the entire room can be colour coordinated with virtually any colour from light pastels to rich vibrant colours. The style of kitchen is down to choice. Conventional shaker style for a period feel, a more contemporary look with flowing curves – whatever the style a unique matt hand painted finish will enhance it.
