Hello Peagreen and kitchens have a thing going on. I just can’t get enough of looking at them, designing them or being in them – especially at trade show parties! Last month, Hello Peagreen was featured in 77 Beautiful Kitchen Ideas by the online design magazine, The Luxe Pad. LuxePad asked a whole host of interior designers and design bloggers to give their beautiful kitchen ideas and share a kitchen they loved. I’ve never seen so many great kitchens in one post before and you can read it all here. There is literally something for everyone no matter whether you like ultra contemporary, colourful or country style kitchens. And Hello Peagreen was included, with my thoughts on painted kitchens and why being brave with dark units pays off.
Here’s the tip I shared in 77 Beautiful Kitchen Ideas;
I’ve always had a soft spot for painted kitchens as they really offer longevity in my opinion, because when you’ve gone off that perfect ‘of the moment’ colour you can repaint the cabinets and give your kitchen a whole new lease of life. Especially if you change up the hardware and maybe the backsplashes too. This bespoke kitchen is masquerading its modern technology behind traditional hand painted cabinetry. It’s making a really contemporary statement though with the inky dark paint choice, painted in Off Black by Farrow & Ball. For those of us beyond the ‘roommate’ years, we tend to make the kitchen the heart of the house. Being able to cook and socialise with friends and family at the same time is a big desire if your kitchen is large enough. It’s why kitchen islands are so in demand and so enjoyable if you have them, this island increases its sociable charm by having an integrated wine fridge. Teamed with large format stone flooring with under floor heating, a traditional Aga and a beautiful oak beam this kitchen shows its cosy side too. It’s not that exciting to have to consider durability when you’re designing a space but when it comes to designing your kitchen it’s of paramount importance, as kitchens are usually big-ticket purchases in your home.
