“Coloured cabinets could be your new best friend!”
Is a bright and colourful style your kind of thing? The best way to create colour and brightness through the kitchen is through coloured cabinets. Monochrome is normally the style people go for in the hub of the home, as you see the whites and blacks come together, but if you like the sound of being different then a coloured cabinet could be your new best friend and certainly look great.
In this blog, colours will be discussed to add that splash of colour to your hub of the home, and how can you decorate the rest of the room to complement the look you have gone for.
A uniformed style of bright and bold colours…
Do you want to make a statement in the kitchen at first sight? Well choosing a uniformed colour scheme will work just this. Shades of red, blues and greens work best for this style. All cabinets across the kitchen should be applied with this colour.
To ensure all focus is on the colour of the cabinets opt for a glossy handleless finish, this will make the kitchen look stylish and clutter free. Other areas in the kitchen should be treated like a backdrop, so like the floor and worktops, most colours work with an oak floor and a light coloured quartz worktop. Wall colours should be kept light in tones of cream or whites depending on the colour of the cabinets.
To create an extra pop of colour, opt for a coloured wall tile to serve as a backsplash for the cooking areas. Red works with blue and green, blue works with purple, and green works with grey and violet shades.
A two-tone colour palette is achieved by choosing two different colours which flatter eachother. Use around the kitchen to show off the different areas of the kitchen. The two-tone style is normally shown through the wall and floor cabinets, but can be shown through the cabinets and then a stand alone feature such as the kitchen island.
This colour style is the easiest way to add colour to the kitchen, and can be used in any kitchen, from small, to large, to contemporary, to traditional. Lighter colours are a good choice for a smaller kitchen to open it up. Blue, white and green are a perfect colour choice for this. In larger kitchens, colours such as deep purples can create a dramatic effect and work very well.
To work a backdrop with a two-tone palette you want to make the walls quite plain, and a statement tile to add texture to the room. Flooring can be a glossy style or a wooden tone and the worktops should be light.
Make a statement with a feature…
Make a statement in the kitchen with the feature being a different colour to the rest of the cabinets, such as a kitchen island like the one below in the picture. A stand alone feature can certainly transform the entire room, if installed in the right colour. It is very much like the two-tone effect, where two colours have been used on the cabinetry.
The shade of colour for the kitchen island really depends on the overall effect you want to have in your kitchen. Green can help to create a country effect, greys are contemporary, reds can have a firey, bold effect and blues are bright and fresh.
