5. Emphasise the islandIf you have a kitchen island in the centre of your room, make a feature of it by painting it a different colour to the rest of your cabinetry. As it’s just one area of the kitchen, you can afford to be quite bold.In this space, the designers have chosen a vivid red that really makes a statement. To add even more personality, they’ve painted the stools in a mix of shades.

Matt bold-coloured unitsAn all-red kitchen, whether gloss or matt, is a dramatic choice probably best avoided, unless this is your forever home and you’re convinced you’ll be happy with the shade for a good 10 years. One way to incorporate a strong, bright shade like this, though, is to limit it to just one element in your kitchen, such as the island, as here. As for gloss or matt, let your kitchen style lead you… A matt finish tends to suit more traditional-style cabinetry, and it’s easier to repaint too.Follow the example here and use small surrounding details to tie it into the rest of the scheme. Small appliances, accessories and flowers do the job in this kitchen.

Undercoat if necessaryPriming may also be necessary before adding colour. “If you’re using eggshell or gloss, then an undercoat or primer is advisable,” says Hewett. “Some paints for wood are self-undercoating, though, so it’s important to always check the instructions on the tin or ask your local decorator’s merchant for advice.”
