French country kitchen colors are very popular, and this theme gives a cozy and warm look to the kitchen. Pick color for walls which are a butter shade of yellow and off-white and stucco texture for the ceiling. Add weathered and stained cabinets, and display copper cookware, and use terracotta tiles. Pick an earthy granite material for kitchen countertops. Then add few wrought iron chairs and chandelier to complete the look.
If you wish to give a touch of modern decor to the kitchen cabinets then certain color combinations like these would be useful. One of the most popular combinations these days is that of black cabinets with deep red walls. You can also have dark red kitchen cabinets with white walls. To give your kitchen a natural-Zen look, consider going with fresh green walls with some white wall designs and dark black or dark brown cabinets. White walls with some dark painted cabinets also look modern and give a very different look to the kitchen. White goes with deep blue, deep green, and deep red cabinets. Another way to make your kitchen look modern is to paint the kitchen walls in turquoise blue or lavender colors.
While you start working on the colors, you need to take into consideration a lot of elements. Starting with the kitchen cabinets, you also need to think about the shelves, island, and dining table. Cabinets occupy a major area of the room, hence matching colors with these is a must for right decor. You can have the cabinets painted in dual colors, both or one of these matching with the shades used for the walls. The dining tables and chairs (if you already have this set) also need to go well with the walls. Next, the tiles must be in shades that match with the paint for kitchens.
One of the best ways to save money on kitchen remodeling is to opt for projects that you can do yourself over weekends. This ensures that you save money on labor and only pay for the material cost. If you are happy with the existing kitchen layout, then there is no need to spend money on designing and planning a new layout for the kitchen.
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.
One of the best ideas for inexpensive kitchen remodeling is to update your existing kitchen cabinets by using paint, molding and new hardware instead of installing new ones. The cost of installing brand new kitchen cabinets is exorbitant, and when you are on a budget it is best to make the best of what you have got. Painting the kitchen cabinets in a color that complements the wall color of the kitchen is a great idea to jazz them up. You can even consider staining or pickling the wooden kitchen cabinets for a fresh look. Install new hardware like kitchen cabinet pulls and knobs. These types of installation do not cost much and you can do it yourself over the weekend.
