Sometimes you need just a bit of color in your kitchen.
White cabinets remain at the top of most people’s kitchen design wish lists, but they’re not for everyone. This is the year to add some color to our kitchens. We’ve seen cabinets in various takes on wood and paint tones to create spaces that range from rich and warm to light and airy. So maybe you have a kitchen renovation in mind this year. Here are some ideas you might want to consider when talking to a professional about your new kitchen.
The color “Sage” is a soft, cloudy green that is very soothing and is favored in European kitchens. This color is generally paired with copper and a farmhouse sink that creates reflective light to brighten the kitchen.
There is also a return to natural wood, oak cabinets in a natural stain pair very well with backsplashes and countertops made from large slabs of marble giving the impression of a weightless palette that enhances sunlight.
To enhance natural lighting kitchens do well with recommended and focused installed LED recessed lights and under-counter lights. Pendant lights over Islands or seating can bring dimension to your entire space and add a point of focus, too.
Light blue is one of the most effective colors for creating a bright, neutral look that adds a lot of color without overpowering the natural woods. Plus, warmth goes a long way to making a space feel welcoming, and the rich woods featured here to get the job done nicely.
Darker & Black
There are times when black is what makes the statement kitchen perfect, especially if you have high ceilings and a large space. Black cabinets can be offset by natural light and doses of white on the countertops, backsplash, walls and range. Done right with an expansive floor plan, the look comes off as nothing but bright and open.
Finally, three-tone kitchens! In the past couple of years, two-tone kitchens have been very popular. Two-tone kitchens are created when upper cabinets and lower cabinets vary in color or when an island is a different color from the rest of the cabinets. This year, we are seeing a new trend, where one more color or material is used to create a color palette that is asymmetrical. By doing so, it helps define zones in the kitchen.
