Be aware of the change of seasons - intense wallpaper and fabric-covered chairs may be sumptuous and luxurious when it’s cold outside, but rather more intense in the summer heat. Remember colour doesn’t have to be permanent, so consider more temporary updates to your dining room a striking runner, chinaware and vases of seasonal blooms will not only inject colour into a neutral scheme, but can be a temporary reflection of summer brights or winter hues.

It’s an opportunity to show off collectables, fine china and vintage pieces, which will give the room a bit of character.

A predominantly white scheme has fresh appeal, but don’t overlook the elegance of a dark scheme with hints of white. Alternatively stick to accessories for a softer finish. Monochrome works with all tones of timber, as well as greys and pure shades, such as emerald green.

Refreshing blue-greens, pale shades needn’t lack punch,’ says Jamie Telford, Director, Roundhouse. ‘We love the refreshing tones of this paint colour, which has a blue base warmed with green. It can be lifted further with limed-oak flooring and chunky oaks shelves. We doubt you’ll ever tire of it, but if you do the beauty of a painted kitchen is that the colour can be easily changed.

Once you have devised the perfect layout for your kitchen, you can start to inject some of your own taste and personality into it with the cabinets and finishes you choose. Finishing touches such as kitchen worktops, kitchen splashbacks, kitchen doors, kitchen flooring and kitchen handles will all have a huge impact on the overall look and feel of your kitchen.

For example, a wallpaper with a white background may look more like cream next to a white table, so try to keep them apart, using black accessories as punctuation. A monochrome scheme can be bold and will usually benefit from some texture and a mix of surface finishes. Gloss and matt, opaque and dense - build up layers to add extra interest and soften any harshness.

Pretty in pink, keeping strong colours, such as this Dusty Pink, to below eye-level will reduce their prominence in the room, allowing you to go a few shades bolder than you might otherwise dare,’ says Barry Walker, Executive Operations Manager, Chalon. ‘Use polished worktops such as granite or quartz in pale shades to bounce the light and keep the overall look fresh and uplifting. Timber accents on doorknobs and freestanding pieces will provide contrast and help stop the colour feeling flat.
