Where to start with a small kitchen? Advice from our interior painters Sydney

First of all, are you remodelling your small kitchen? If so, is there scope to physically enlarge the space? Can you open up any walls perhaps? If this isn’t an option, then choosing the right colours is paramount. Rule of thumb, when it comes to small kitchens our interior painters recommend choosing light shades. Light colours open up space. Light colours also reflect light making your small kitchen seem bigger. Illusion is everything when it comes to space! So, the first thing to do is to choose the perfect colour for your small kitchen. A professional colour consultant can help you with that!

Sometimes it’s hard to choose the right small kitchen interior colour. Luckily, having a small kitchen makes this decision a little easier. Our Sydney interior painters say never use dark shades! So that helps shorten the list.

Small areas look best in light and bright colours. Using colours that open up space will create a dramatic difference in how small, or large, your kitchen will look. Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean you have to paint everything in your kitchen a clinical white! There are endless shades of whites to choose from – just check out Taubmans Endure’s colour range.

Mixing shades of whites and creams can add warmth and sophistication to your small kitchen’s interior painting scheme. You can also introduce different textures rather than colours to create points of interest. Keeping the same colour palette again helps with opening a space up and adds some interest.

If you do want a pop of colour though why not introduce it via the gorgeous colours in small appliances these days.
