We wanted to know just what you really consider most important when renovating your kitchen, so we conducted some research to find out more.

White remains a consistent favourite, being the most popular colour choice at 59%. Grey was a very close second, with 58% of you inspired by this subtle and versatile shade.
Other popular kitchen palettes include cream, and for those wanting to inject a bolder statement to your design then blue, green and black were the hottest colourways.
