Here are seven options to style or create a colourful kitchen (not all at the same time), so you can imagine what a striking shade of colour would look like in your next kitchen design with Jag Kitchens.

  • Colourful kitchen splashback with Jag KitchensStatement Splashbacks
    There are plenty of options available here to ensure your splashback adds a pop of colour and/or texture to your kitchen design. Choose from coloured glass, tiles, or even a print or metallic spray. If the space above your bench top and stove top merges into a larger wall, consider using a back-painted glass backsplash that compliments the colour of the surrounding wall.

Be sure to keep a little space in between the items that are on the shelf, to ensure they don’t look to crammed in and cluttered.Alternatively, if you have open shelving or cabinets whose interiors can be seen from the outside (i.e. glass doors), you could look at painting the inside of an open cabinet for an instant colourful effect.
