It’s official! Spring is just around the corner, bringing longer days of sunshine, white fluffy clouds in blue skies, and flowers coming into bloom all over the country.
And as bright splashes of colour creep back into the world after a long and rainy winter, many of us will get the urge to brighten up our homes as well - including our kitchens. However, picking a colour is a big decision - let's face it, kitchen renovations aren't cheap, and your new look will probably have to last the best part of a decade, or even longer.
Luckily for us, Wren Kitchens have revealed their tips for caputuring spring colours inside your kitchen in shades that will stand the test of time, so that you can experience sunshine all year round for years to come. So what are the emerging trends to look out for?
Tip 1 - Add a burst of bright colour to bring sunshine into your space
Adding a bright, bold yellow with subtle orange undertones into your kitchen is an obvious way of bringing in those sunny vibes - but that's because it works! It'll leave the space feeling fresh and vibrant, providing an instant mood boost even in the gloomier months.
Tip 2 - Throw in some tropical tones
For the perfect pick-me-up kitchen, add a slice of citrus with lemon and lime tones. Remember, bright and colourful shades work exceptionally well with a ultra-modern, sleek design. And, if you don't want to commit to a full colour kitchen, you can make a real impact by focusing the bright shades on single areas like islands and upper cabinets, giving a zesty pop of colour.
Tip 3 - Try pick ‘n mix style
If bright yellows and oranges aren't your jam, no fear! Why not pair pretty pastels with crisp whites to create a breezy, springlike feel in your kitchen. A shade like cottonfloss pink is sweet and sophisticated, adding a fun but subtle pop of colour to your kitchen design. Wren's patisserie-inspired Macaroon collection includes 12 sweet shades with a soft-touch finish to get you started.
Tip 4 - Be inspired by nature
Bringing springtime vibes into your home doesn't necessarily mean you have to opt for bright colour. Instead, you can choose other elements of nature - like natural patinas of gold, copper, bronze - to bring inside your kitchen, adding a luxurious yet natural feel to your space. To complete the look, pair it with a quartz worktop which will shimmer all day long, especially when the sun bounces off it!
