The heart of most homes is the kitchen. It’s often the hub of family activity and should be designed as a spot that’s attractive, where people want to gather. Below are some ideas for adding a splash of color to your kitchen to help make it inviting to all.
Now more than ever, designers are looking at the kitchen cabinet finish as a way to transform bland rooms into dynamic spaces. Refinishing your cabinets is a great way to set the tone for the rest of the room’s design, and it’s much less expensive than buying new ones.
Deep blues and reds can make a strong statement, while light greens and blues are reminiscent of farmhouse kitchens. Yellows are also a popular way of brightening the room and keeping a clean feeling with a lot of vibrancy.
After you’ve decided on a cabinet finish, it’s time to examine your countertops. While most materials fall in the range of neutral colors, it’s important to find a match to your new colorful look.
When choosing a natural surface, such as granite and marble, carefully examine the surface for streaks of color. These natural marks should match or complement your kitchen’s overall color scheme.
Manmade materials, such as Laminate, Corian® and Zodiaq®, offer more variety and give you the freedom to select from a wider range of options to complete your room.
The last piece in bringing your new kitchen look together is the furniture. Chairs and tables can be a great way to balance out bright colors. Instead of buying all new items, consider refinishing the ones you already have for a cost effective way to update your kitchen. With a wide variety of colors and finishes available, you’ll be able to match whatever colors you’ve selected.
