Bring out the best in your kitchen

The kitchen is where you will tend to spend a lot of time, especially if you are the main chef in your household. Make sure you are comfortable with your chosen colour scheme. Bright, invigorating colour schemes can boost energy levels when you have a lot of cooking and cleaning to get through. As kitchens are dominated by cabinetry, benches and the floor, treat these elements as the starting point for your colour scheme.

The appearance of colours in the kitchen will depend on the properties and textures of each of the surfaces. Glossy surfaces, such as laminated cabinetry, will reflect more light and look different to low sheen painted walls, so it is important to be careful when trying to match colours in different materials. Sometimes it is better to select a tone lighter or darker rather than trying to create an exact colour match. A glass splashback can be the ideal way to add a splash of colour in an otherwise neutral kitchen.

Resene has a range of kitchen and bathroom paints formulated with anti-bacterial silver and Resene MoulDefender to protect your kitchen. And if you’re tired of fly spots on your ceiling, consider getting a dose of Resene Fly Deterrent added to your favourite Resene ceiling finish. If you’re planning to use a Resene colour on your kitchen cabinetry, ask your specifier to request the joiner uses Resene ArmourCat to ensure you get an authentic Resene colour.
