The kitchen expert said lilac is a “soothing colour” which is “perfect” for creating a “stress-free space” for when you’re cooking dinner.

While lilac is more commonly used in bedrooms and bathrooms, it can add a touch of colour to more functional rooms of the home like the kitchen.

Lilac, which is synonymous with lavender, is a calming, comforting colour that could inject a sense of tranquillity into kitchens, which is especially useful after a stressful day at work.

The expert suggested pairing the colour with shades such as blue, white, and grey.

Neutral colours are timeless and could make it easier to sell a property as buyers will be able to envision their own appliances and decor in the room.

Timeless neutral colours are also the third biggest colour trend, according to Pinterest.

Searches for neutral kitchens have increased by 29 percent making this sleek colour the third top trend.

If you want a kitchen that will never go out of style, then a neutral colour choice is the perfect option.

Polly said: “Neutral goes with any colour and is a great blank canvas for adding pops of colour through accessories that can be easily changed throughout the years.”
