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.
If you have a flexible budget, then you can go with a theme kitchen like Italian, Tuscan, or French country. If you are looking for a calm look, go with more whites and off-whites. For a cheerful look in the kitchen sunshine yellow walls are a good idea. If you want your kitchen to look stunning then pick colors like lavender, black, mint blue, light cherry, or pale green. Make sure you have enough cabinets and shelves to accommodate all the utensils to maintain the kitchen space uncluttered, this will also help in kitchen cleaning. For easier maintenance of the kitchen, go with a semi-gloss finish, as this finish makes the wall more durable and can be scrubbed.
If you want a harmonious look of painted walls which complements the dark cabinets then use these ideas. The simplest way to do this is to choose a shade which is lighter than the color of the cabinets. For example, if you have dark brown cabinets then go for a shade of medium or light brown. If your cabinets are black in color go with gray.
If you are thinking of kitchen remodeling, then Tuscan theme is a good choice. Tuscan kitchens imitate nature and colors like green, brown, yellow and red are used on walls. Use a stucco texture to get this theme, and opt for curtains which are light-colored or have striped or checked pattern on them. You can place wall tiles in front of the sink which have floral designs on them, and hang copper vessels for display. Add some wooden kitchen furniture, and for finishing touch place a large-sized copper pot on the table.
Galley kitchen, though the most economical, is also the most crumpled of all kitchen floor layouts. It includes kitchen set up along the two parallel walls in the kitchen, with a narrow space in between. All the appliances, counters, and kitchen cabinets are arranged along the two parallel walls of the kitchen. This type of layout is suitable for kitchens with a single cook.
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.
