Adding small decorative items can greatly help to bring visual attention to a kitchen, that has a light monochromatic scheme. These items can also be added to match the kitchen decor and used to enhance the kitchen decoration. You can add items like houseplants, vases, light fixtures, a bowl of fruits, paintings, etc. in your kitchen.
Though this theme centers more around wooden colors and elements, there are ways in which you can incorporate black in the scheme of your kitchen design. One of the best ways to do so is by installing distressed cabinets that will not look too modern and, in fact, fit in perfectly with your overall design. For the best look, don`t combine these pieces of furniture with any other color, or they will take away the attention from the distressed furniture pattern you have tried to create. With their well-defined molding and similar elements, they are the most suitable choice for this theme. Use warm colors such as the rich, golden-yellow backdrop or even kitchen countertops in this color, against which the cabinets will stand out, to create a comfortable, cozy combination while working around this theme. An important element to consider in this overall theme is the flooring. Nothing speaks rustic more than the diamond tile pattern. A black-and-white, diamond-checkered pattern on the floor will help you complete the look. Of course, you can always experiment with the flooring patterns, but this is one of the traditional looks that completes almost any room based on a rustic theme.
Add flair to the cabinets with frosted glass cabinet doors. It is better than clear glass doors as it succeeds from hiding stuff behind it, giving them a hazy appearance. You can use it to camouflage your pots and pans, and is especially beneficial to create a warm, fuzzy atmosphere.
Once you have white cabinets in kitchen, it`s time to add a suitable kitchen countertop. Granite countertops look extremely classy with white cabinets. In case of antique white cabinets, you can opt for brown or black colored granite. White cabinets with dark countertops, especially in black, look simply awesome. You can also have marble countertop in dark color for white cabinets. Remember that countertops are equally prominent and hence, need to be chosen properly. These must essentially complement your kitchen cabinets.
As mentioned earlier, the following cabinet designs and ideas will be discussed on the basis of a theme. Keep in mind that, since you are following a particular theme, it should be applicable to your whole house and not just your kitchen. You don`t want it to stick out like a sore thumb because of your desire to solely revamp your kitchen. The overall theme does not have to be blatantly prominent, but elements of a particular theme must be present all over your house for a better effect.
Another important factor that determines whether or not you should have them is the amount of natural light that your kitchen receives. If it is situated in a dark corner, having such furniture pieces is not such a great idea. If it is well-lit, then black in combination with a lighter color will allow for a great reflection of the natural light, and help you express your style with panache.
