If you have a small kitchen, go with a monochromatic light-colored theme, like whites or off-whites. If you have a medium or large-sized kitchen, then color themes like lavender-white walls with black appliances look great. You can also go with aqua blue and white walls with white appliances. Ceiling loft lights look great, and use soft colored towels in kitchens. You can also consider painting cabinets to match the appliances color.
You may implement your own ideas considering the dimensions of your own kitchen and the size and number of kitchen appliances. No matter which layout you choose, the arrangement should be such that minimum time is wasted in walking around for fetching things.
The number and size of appliances have increased manifold since 1950. Thus, the classic triangle design may not work for the modern kitchens of today, that flaunt sophisticated appliances. Hence, the idea of zone centered design came into practice. The concept of this layout design is based on division of kitchen into several zones, based on the activity. Meaning, the appliances are arranged in the order of their utility. Any modern kitchen can be primarily divided into main zones such as cooking, cleaning, baking, eating, storing, etc. This way, you can find whatever you need for a single activity at one place only. Not only this will reduce the time taken for fetching things and making trips within the kitchen, it will also keep your kitchen more organized and clutter free.
Bright colors are used in a Mexican kitchen. Use warm colors like red, orange and yellow on the walls. For the countertop, different colored painted tiles look great. You can go with mosaic tiles also. Terracotta floor tiles add a warm and traditional Mexican kitchen look, and are easy to care for. Iron hardware on painted wooden furniture will add a nice rustic look. You can add some wrought iron chairs. Copper sink, with copper stove hoods will lighten the room and add to the ambiance. Hang some baskets and place them on table with some decorative food items, to complete the look.
While picking the kitchen themes, there are many aspects you need to consider. If you have a small kitchen then for kitchen decorating, use monochromatic colors like white, blue, light gray or yellow. You can also consider installing additional windows and light fixtures to increase the amount of light in the kitchen. Make sure you maintain the least amount of clutter. If you have a large-sized kitchen then go for darker colors like purple, maroon, brown, etc. Also, the kitchen cabinets should be fitted according to the kitchen design to create harmony. For a squarish kitchen, go with a round or square dining table, for a large kitchen you can go with an oval or rectangular dining table. If you are on a tight budget, then go with contemporary theme, and look for cheap kitchen furniture, and add few lights and a flower vase to decorate your kitchen.
No kitchen remodeling is complete until you replace your old kitchen countertop with new ones. Choose inexpensive countertop material like laminate and tile instead of costly countertop materials like solid stone slab and quartz surfacing countertop. You can also choose ceramic tile countertop as they are inexpensive and comes in a variety of styles and designs. However, they are very time-consuming to install. Laminate countertops are one of the cheapest option and they are durable and available in a wide range of patterns and textures.
