Adding a splash of colour to the kitchen is no new trend for Britons – with homeowners commonly utilising small coloured appliances such as toasters and kettles, and even kitchen tiles in a range of shades to give their home a personal a touch. However, homeowners are taking it that one step further and purchasing coloured large domestic appliances to give their kitchen that sought-after pop of colour. So where did this desire for colour in the kitchen begin? It goes back to the mid-20th century. The 1950s to 1970s saw rapid growth in the number of coloured kitchen appliances available in the market, with yellows, greens and blues of the 1950s giving way to

Following on from that, the 1970s and 1980s saw cream avocado and grey appliances growing in popularity, with whites and stainless steel emerging as the favourites in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and black later seeing popularity in the 2000s While choice of colour might be the priority at the top of many homeowner lists, style and shape are just as important to consider before making a purchase, and the resurgence of colour in the kitchen goes hand in hand with retro-style appliances that utilise aesthetics such as curved edges.
