2. For the more daring, red is wonderful

If you want to add personality and a bit of a bold statement to your kitchen, then red or any other primary colour can be the perfect protagonist. Combine it with metal elements or granite finishes to create the perfect contrast.

3. Enjoy a spotless kitchen using white counters

Veneered white counter tops are easy to clean and beautify a kitchen in no time. You can combine it with black, grey or even white furniture. Engineered stone, often referred to simply as quartz, is a good option. It is made of crushed stone bound together with a polymer resin. Engineered stone counter tops are nonporous and resistant to stains and scratches, and the only maintenance they require is a wipe-down with mild soap and water.

Tip: Invest in lighting that will enhance the white look and feel. Have a look at these 10 all white kitchens for inspiration.
