Though the countertops take only a little of the kitchen space, they can be used creatively to create visual accents. You can go with a black colored kitchen countertop, and gray wall colors. Or you can go with beige walls, limestone countertop, a dark yellow wooden flooring and accompany it with small colorful decorative items to add the touch of colors.
As mentioned earlier, you can create a combination of colors in cabinets if you find black too overpowering, even within the contemporary design framework. Use colors such as gray and white, perhaps, with a dash of red to create the perfect combination. The combination can also be attained in terms of such black furniture pieces and white flooring, and perhaps, red chairs at your breakfast table. Also, use a bright backsplash to complete this look. As overdone as you may find this color combination, nothing speaks contemporary better than this one.
When you are having a white plus another color to grace your kitchen, make sure that white covers not less than 70 - 75% of the entire design. Also, avoid adding more than two colors in the kitchen design. Consider the color of tiles, flooring and paint. Ensure that the color of kitchen appliances also matches with the theme. Make sure you choose the best handles for 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.
The first step is to paint the walls. Considering the white kitchen cabinets, the colors that will look great are aqua blue, light Persian blue, light shade of lavender, gray and medium bright red, or a dark maroon. These wall colors will help to balance the white colored cabinets. You can also go with soft light shades of blue, yellow or green, if you wish the cabinets to blend in, but still look attractive.
White is not only the safest color while decorating your kitchen but it also offers an illusion of space for a small kitchen. As we all spend a considerable amount of time in the kitchen on a daily basis, it`s not surprising to find that most people want their kitchen not only functional, but also esthetically pleasing. White also makes it easier for repainting. Whereas you might have to sand and degloss and also use a primer to get rid of any other colored surface of kitchen cabinet. But for white cabinets, only sanding can do the trick! If you have a rustic themed kitchen, then glazed white cabinets are best suited to create an antique feel. For a kitchen with a modern flair, white is still a good option as it enhances its sleekness. You can contrast the handles, knobs, etc. in stainless steel and add the necessary spark to the cabinets.
