Colourful Kitchen Ideas

At Multiliving, we will help you choose the colour scheme of your new kitchen, in line with our overall design plan. We consider a harmonious colour scheme the cornerstone of any luxury kitchen. With our broad experience designing bespoke kitchens for a variety of clients, we have the expertise to help you achieve a balanced, colourful kitchen.

Items like countertop appliances, picture frames on the walls, seat cushions, drapes, or other details like these are perfect for adding colour. Relying on smaller features to bring a pop of colour is the best way to keep things balanced while still playing with a unique colour scheme.


Adding a turquoise coffee maker or bright, sunny curtains is one thing, bold cabinets are another. Since cabinets are one of the main features of the kitchen, we usually pick the colour scheme for these very carefully. We don’t necessarily want to attract attention with cabinets, but to complement the overall colour temperature of the room. Whether they’re light, dark, neutral, or brightly coloured depends greatly on the particular kitchen design.


Cabinets aren’t the only kitchen units we rely on to create congruous colour schemes. The kitchen island, the countertops, and any furniture like tables and chairs can significantly add or detract from a compatible kitchen colour scheme. Depending on the size of the space, we can suggest either a low contrast plan (for small kitchens) or a high contrast scheme.


Finally, we consider the wall colour when designing our clients’ kitchens. Some clients choose not to repaint and would rather that we design their new kitchen installation around what they already have. Others are ready for a complete remodel! Either way, we factor paint colour into our holistic design scheme for our clients, ensuring the wall colour brightens and complements the kitchen appropriately.

Which Colours Work Well Together?

As experts in designing colourful kitchens, we integrate the principles of colour theory into our schemes. Indeed, there are many ways to think about colour schemes. When it comes to your colourful kitchen, we don’t have hard and fast rules we adhere to in our designs. We take each project and each client individually, evaluating the space and the client’s preferences to determine what’s best. Sometimes, an analogous colour pattern works best. A small galley kitchen in shades of mint green would be a terrific example. For other spaces, complementary is the way to go. A U-shaped kitchen with azure backsplash and carrot-coloured light fixtures might be exactly the complementary palette a client wants.

How to Add Personality to Your Kitchen

Colour scheme options are limitless, restrained only by your creativity. With our experience in designing colourful kitchens, we can guide you toward the best way to add unique personality to your kitchen. A few of our favourite ways to add personality are with bold kitchen tiles, inventive lighting fixtures, and patterned window treatments.

Bold Kitchen Tiles – Using a bold statement colour or pattern for the splash-back tiles is an eye-catching way to lend your kitchen some character.

Inventive Lighting Fixtures – We also help our clients personalise their kitchens with interesting or downright funky lighting pieces. Lighting can have such an impact on the kitchen’s overall charm, making it sleek and refined or quirky and charming.

Textured or Patterned Window Treatments – Here at Multiliving, we’re not afraid to play around with colour and texture a bit, which is why we advise some clients to put patterned or textured curtains on their kitchen windows. Just like with splash-back tiles, bold colours and patterns can enrich a kitchen’s character tenfold. It’s important to pick only one element in the kitchen for such boldness, though. Otherwise, you’ll have an overwhelming design!

Creating colourful kitchens with a bespoke colour scheme and design is one of our specialties at Multiliving. With our experience in this area, you can rely on us to craft a perfectly personalised kitchen for you. You can always visit our Kitchen Showroom in North London.

What Our Clients Say...


After having renovated our flat in London, my wife and I , asked for Multiliving support to furnish our new kitchen.We turned to the Scavolini store, knowing the quality of the brand.We have found excellent design and service skills.Giulio followed us with special attention and availability and the result is great. WE ARE REALLY SATISFIED.

Giovanni Fraquelli

They designed and built our beautiful kitchen: the quality of the kitchen is superb and the service we had was impeccable. After a couple of years we asked for some changes and everything was done quickly and precisely.

Judi Abbot

Recently fitted a brand new Scavolini (Diesel Line) kitchen in our flat. Love it. Multiple showroom visits and site visits and great assistance throughout the process. Also would recommend their installation team – as they are highly skilled and dealt with the minor hiccups on site.

Oliver Sanna

Multi living replaced our kitchen and 3 bathrooms last year, and we’ve overall been very pleased with the results a year later. Matteo did a very good job of designing a bathroom layout which would work well with our unusual room with a curved wall, and the bathrooms look stylish and modern.
