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 certain colors which can stand out and make the cabinets look less prominent. These are mostly bright colors. These colors need to be selected wisely, otherwise they can look too loud. The best is to go with medium or medium-light shades of such color. Some of the colors which will make the wall look more prominent than the kitchen are sunshine yellow, bright green, orange, red, and turquoise blue.
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.
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.
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 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.
