How to bring sunshine into your kitchen

How to bring sunshine into your kitchen

There’s lots of reasons to love the summer months after all, everything seems to get brighter, lighter and better, inside and outside of the home – don’t you think?

Above all, in the world of interior design, the arrival of the sunnier months means one thing… a whole host of new and exciting trends to integrate into your favourite spaces.

And if you’re looking to bring the sunshine into your kitchen this season, we’ve created a helpful guide outlining how you can do just that. After all, your kitchen is often the central social hub of your home, so it’s important that it is welcoming, stylish and accommodating. Oh and life’s always better when the sun shines, right?

Out with the old and in with the new!

If your kitchen units are looking worn and tired, Spring/Summer is the perfect time to update and uplift your kitchen!

And this season it’s all about light granite worktops, crisp white units and clean simple lines. As a general rule, if you’re looking to add light and interest to your kitchen, shiny stone is always a good option, as unlike wood and other materials, it will reflect the light in the room more.

Other popular summer colours that are set to be huge this season include sky blue, fleecy lamb white, crisp white and daffodil yellow!

A splash of yellow!

Yellow instantly makes a room feel sunnier, brighter and happier! It also gives any daylight source in your kitchen a summery tint!

So when it comes to accessorising your kitchen this Summer, the addition of yellow accents, hints and accessories will inject instant sunshine into one of the busiest rooms in your home. For example a vase of sunflowers, a lemon blind or even the addition of yellow tea towels can make a subtle yet high impact.

Of course, you can always create an accent wall or paint all of your walls yellow!

Small change, big impact

If you haven’t got the available budget to invest in a complete kitchen overhaul, it is possible to make small changes that can have a big impact.

For example, changing the colour of your walls or changing your worktops will instantly add a new and exciting dimension to your space, without a hefty price tag!

Zingy Mediterranean colours are set to be huge this season and will instantly add a healthy dose of sunshine into your home. Of course, the simple addition of a piece of artwork, bright tea towels or small appliances can have just as much impact. Oh and remember, a great way to bring the outdoors, inside is to always have a freshly picked bunch of flowers on display in your kitchen – this will instantly brighten your mood, especially when the weather is dull outside.
