Small apartment kitchen with orange-yellow cabinet and wallpapered splashback


Bold colour accents can transform a room, and there can be no clearer example than this small kitchen.

Mark Bruce CKDNZ, Dip KD of Beaver Kitchens in Whakatane designed a cantilevered cabinet with doors painted in Resene Fuel Yellow lacquer. This is teamed with white acrylic benchtops, and a dark Madagascar timber veneer on the tall cabinet. The glass splashback features Resene Black and White wallpaper.

Resene Fuel Yellow is described as an intense, weighty orange-yellow. It is an ideal complement to black and white, ensuring the kitchen is the main feature of the small apartment.

If kitchen walls are to be painted, Resene recommends SpaceCote Low Sheen Kitchen & Bathroom paint. This waterborne, low-odour, Environmental Choice-approved paint provides a durable, washable finish. It is formulated with anti-bacterial silver and MoulDefender that gives added protection against bacteria and mould.

For kitchen ceilings, Resene SpaceCote Flat Kitchen & Bathroom is advised, while Resene Lustacryl Kitchen & Bathroom is suggested for the trim and joinery.
