More than just a way to style and attract, colours are essential for creating meaningful spaces that reflect one's unique personality.

When you walk into a space for the first time, what is the first thing that catches your eye?

Before we can get close enough to appreciate the finer details that set each space apart, colours are often the first thing that we notice and remember, aside from giant features of art and décor that are purposefully positioned to be in our line of sight.

In the case of closer spaces, specifically places where we live and work in, how our eyes will naturally look for the things that stand out, and in this blog, we aim to help you understand a few basic ways to turn simple spaces into rooms that inspire.

From countertop surfaces to cabinet fixtures, careful consideration must be given to every aspect in order to create a living space that looks as well as it can function.

Nothing lifts one’s mood better than bright pops of colour.

There’s a reason why bright colours are used for celebration, signs and symbols. Their rich shades can naturally grab attention and direct wandering eyes to where we want or need them to be.

The only trick when it comes to using bright shades is to avoid letting it overwhelm the space by pairing it either lighter or darker shades to create unique contrasts.

As accent walls, bright colours generally pump energy into the entire space. As furniture pieces, they work best to draw attention to the centre of any room. In any form, they effortlessly add bold character to your space; creating a lasting impression for visiting guests.

Paired with the right lighting, bright colours are great for creating warm spaces that are perfect for gatherings and lively conversations.

Consider matching a bright colour with neutral shades to avoid creating a living space that overwhelms you every time you walk into the room. We love how the richness of the red cabinetry is paired with white countertop surfaces to create a kitchen space that is bright, cheerful, and festive all year round.

Paired with light woodgrains, pastels are largely popular as softer alternatives to create a bright and airy space that is equally warm and inviting.

Where simplicity rules, pattern-free solid colours offers a basic start to create soothing havens.

As modern trends go, a minimalist home remains as one of the top interior picks for those who favour carefree lifestyles with a limited yet neutral colour palette.

Primarily consisting of whites, browns, and greys, our Plains series offer 10 of these neutral colours that are available with either a standard matte or ultra-matte finish.

Paired with furnishings that require little effort to maintain over time, these spaces are set to serve and support without added distractions so that we can focus on getting what needs to be done for the day.

Since KompacPanels are only 6mm-thick, its distinct black-coloured panel core matches well with the rest of this pristine space.

If you haven’t heard, black is steadily becoming the go-to colour for personalising spaces with a different kind of ‘wow’.

There’s nothing more classic than a black-and-white combination that reminds us of film noirs and oreos.

Bringing nature home in patterned textures of concrete, stone, and good ol’ wood.

While not every one of us can choose to be surrounded by fresh mountain air and stunning naturescapes, bringing elements of nature home in textured colours from our Woods and Patterns series is the next best alternative to creating a naturally welcoming home that comforts and soothes.

Available in various shades, what our Kollection offers is the enjoyment of natural aesthetics without the necessity of excess bulk to ensure durability.

Instead of bare walls, the concrete kitchen backer complements this space beautifully in layers of grey with a touch of steel.
