If you like a spot of painting then take out your paint brush and get to work! The use of block colours in these pictures works brilliantly. This adds another dimension and brings fun to the kitchen space. It is a lot more effective than an accent wall for example. When picking your colours of choice blue and green are next to one and other on the colour wheel and thus they complement each other well.  Other great colour combinations include; red and orange, yellow and orange, red and purple, and green and yellow.
