WHAT DOES YOUR CHOICE OF KITCHEN COLOUR SAY ABOUT YOU?
The kitchen is the heart of your home, it’s a social room, it’s where everyone comes to gather, so if any room in your home should express your personality it is the kitchen. Although it can be scary experimenting with colour, when you’re keen to make a statement, we don’t think you can go wrong by playing with them in your kitchen. After all the heart of your home should reflect the heart of your family. So what does your choice of kitchen colour say about you and your family?
ONLY THE BEST PAINTS
When it comes to your kitchen, the paintwork has to be able to withstand what 21st century family life can throw at it. It must be hardwearing and durable, so at Four Corners we only use paint brands we love and trust.
Mylands is a brand we certainly love. Their colourists take great pride in the Mylands craft; creating timeless colours that have sumptuous rich depth and paint formulations that are thick, lustrous and easy to use.

Farrow & Ball is another great brand when it comes to paint. Their distinctive palette of 132 timeless colours is renowned for its depth and complexity. Brimming with only the finest ingredients and rich pigments, their paint responds extraordinarily to all types of light to bring your home to life. This unique look transforms modern and traditional homes, large and small, inside and out, across the world.
Blue, the colour of the ocean, is often associated with feelings of serenity. If you have or are contemplating adding a splash of blue to your kitchen, you are probably someone who is able to find peace and tranquility in places where others do not. We all know the kitchen can be a little hectic sometimes, so injecting some calmness and stability into the room, in the form of some blue paint, can work wonders in creating a calm space for the whole family to enjoy and feel relaxed.
DID YOU KNOW…
Studies have shown that the colour blue can even suppress your appetite, so this may be the way to shed those few extra pounds you’ve been so desperately trying to.
Yellow, the colour of sunshine, is often associated with joy, happiness and energy. So if yellow is your colour of choice its safe to say you are probably a rather upbeat individual. People who love yellow often come across a little whacky and distant, but maybe thats just because some people can’t see the world as optimistically as yellow lovers. Overall, yellow is a fantastic colour for indoor space, its light, vibrant and has certainly been a popular colour trend in recent months.
DID YOU KNOW…
According to experts yellow increases focus, so if you often work from home, or the kids could do with a little more focus while completing their homework, yellow could be a great choice.
Green, the colour of nature, is associated with growth, harmony, and freshness. You may expect lovers of this colour to be at one with nature, but in fact those who love green seek financial and emotional stability. They are social butterflies that work hard and strive to please others. A green kitchen is a great way of bringing the ourdoor in, and there is a vast range of shades to choose from.
DID YOU KNOW…
Green has great healing power. It is the most restful colour for the human eye, and can even improve vision. So if you spend your hours at work on a computer screen, and tend to come home to a bit of a headache, adding some green hues to your kitchen can soothe your eyes and even help eradicate that monstrous headache.
Red, the colour of fire, is associated with power, determination, passion and love. If you’re a fan of the colour red you are probably a confident and extroverted individual who likes to make a lasting impression. When it comes to interiors red is a tricky colour, as it is very much in your face and aggressive. However, used in moderation and paired with calming neutrals, red can make a great statement piece in your kitchen.
DID YOU KNOW…
The colour red doesn’t actually make bull’s angry, in fact they are colour blind, so in the unlikely event you find a bull in your kitchen, fear not your red cabinets won’t cause a rampage.
