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.
There are basically two designs in which the kitchen can be laid out. The first is called the ’classic triangle design’ and the second is ’zone centered design’. The classic triangle design was proposed way back in 1950s, hence has become somewhat obsolete now. It revolves around three stations, the range, refrigerator, and the kitchen sink. The placement of these stations often results in a triangle, referred to as ’work triangle’. The idea behind this design is to arrange the three stations in such a way that the working area in the kitchen is optimized. Ideally, the space at the center of the triangle should be free, thus, you will have to place kitchen island out of this triangle. If you place the island at the center, you will have to do a lot of extra walking, moreover, taking a detour around the island can be quite tedious with hands full of dishes or pots and pans. Occasionally, it is alright to overlap the island along the edge of the triangle.
You could get the walls textured. Faux finishing techniques are the best options to highlight the focal wall of your kitchen or dining area. Use it to beautify the wall behind the dining table or enhance a large or small wall that is least cluttered. You can opt for a sponge finish, ragging, or combining any of the best techniques for walls. With these you have the liberty of using some unique shades like golden, silver, or silvery green.
One of the best way to update the look of a plain and boring kitchen is to change the wall colors. Pick a paint color that is lively and fresh instead of a muted or pastel color. A bit of color in the kitchen can give the kitchen a completely new look. Choose paint colors like tangerine, sunny yellow and citrus greens to give the kitchen a warm look. Painting a kitchen is one of the most cost-effective way of renovating a kitchen. Alternatively, you can even install a wallpaper on one or two walls of the kitchen. A modern wallpaper pattern can enhance the kitchen decor and make it look stylish and contemporary. And the best thing about using wallpaper is that there are many inexpensive and discount wallpapers available in home improvement stores.
A kitchen is the busiest area in house, always bustling with activities. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most cluttered and space challenged areas in the house. The cabinets, counter tops, shelves, pots, and pans, and a range of kitchen appliances crumpled together in a small space makes cooking a daunting task. However, if you apply some architectural principles to your kitchen and effectively utilize the available space, you can turn this daunting task into a pleasurable experience.
Choosing paints depends on the mood you want to create in this area. For this, the homemaker’s choice should be given priority, as she will be using this area the most. For a calming effect, you need to consider cool shades and for a lively effect, go for the bold shades. You can use colors like yellow, off-white, beige, cool shades of red, pale blue or green, etc., to paint the walls. Color schemes can consist of dual tone walls with one of the above colors paired with off-white or white. Chocolate brown and beige also make a great looking scheme. For a lively effect, use gaudy colors like hot red, bright pink, violet, magenta, chocolate, orange, and black. For a jazzy look you can consider combos like hot red and gray, black and violet or magenta, orange and black, or black and a hint of bright green.
