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.
You may implement your own ideas considering the dimensions of your own kitchen and the size and number of kitchen appliances. No matter which layout you choose, the arrangement should be such that minimum time is wasted in walking around for fetching things.
An L-shaped kitchen allows ample free space to move around, at the center of the kitchen. The layout consists of kitchen arrangement along the two walls of kitchen that are joined at the corner. This type of formation allows you to place a kitchen island along any of the remaining walls.
There are certain colors that you just can’t go wrong with. One of these kitchen colors is beige. Beige is something that goes well with every color of kitchen cabinets. So, if you have black, dark red, or dark yellow cabinets or any other dark shade and want to go with a safe color then go with beige. Beige is a neutral color which is not eye-catching and hence suitable for all cabinet colors. Another shade which comes close is gray. Gray is also a neutral shade, that goes with many dark cabinets. Make sure you choose a medium to light shade of beige or 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.
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.
