Among the myriad decisions involved in planning a new kitchen, choosing paint colours is probably one of the most enjoyable and significant tasks. After all, your choice of colour will determine the overall look of the space be it bold and adventurous, cool and tranquil, or somewhere in between.

For many homeowners today, neutral shades provide an ideal solution. The kitchen shown here features Resene Canterbury Clay from the Resene The Range Whites & Neutrals fandeck. To provide a fresh contrast to the warm sandy shade of the walls, the woodwork trim was painted in Resene Soapstone. Continuity throughout the house was provided by using Resene Half Canterbury Clay in the bedrooms.


Resene recently launched an innovative new paint for kitchen and bathroom areas. Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen Kitchen & Bathroom paint combines the benefits of a low-sheen waterborne enamel with anti-bacterial silver protection, and anti-mould protection by MoulDefender.

Resene marketing manager Karen Warman says anti-bacterial silver protection is internationally recognised as a safe and healthy method of deodorising and sanitising surfaces that come into contact with skin, food and water.
