CANADIAN CRAFTSMANSHIP AND ITALIAN AESTHETICS AT THEIR FINEST
Your kitchen presents an opportunity for you to further expand upon the aesthetic of your home. This room is one of the focal areas of a home, and how well you keep your kitchen will reflect on the rest of your living space. Aside from getting the right cabinets, islands, appliances, and more, you also need to decide if your kitchen will be a traditional kitchen or a modern kitchen. After that, you will need to select a suitable colour palette.
While white kitchens have been very popular in recent times, people are starting to move away from the safe and limiting potential of a white colour palette, especially for modern kitchens. Brighter colours, especially blues and greens, are currently making a splash, riding the wave of trends that prefer naturalistic yet bold aesthetics.
You don’t always have to settle for a specific colour either. If you’re more of a creative risk-taker and want your kitchen to unique and personalized, try working with colour combinations. Colour palettes often do not only consist of hues of the same colour, but can also combine two or more complementary colours. This is especially suitable for modern kitchens, as modern designs are a lot less tied to conventions. For instance, a modern kitchen could easily pull off a naturalistic colour palette that utilizes dark blues, muted greens, and browns.
If you are apprehensive about a bolder kitchen, you don’t need to jump in feet-first. You can always introduce a pop of colour in the island or in the backsplash. A two-tone kitchen with white or light grey upper cabinets and a bolder colour on the bottom still utilizes fresh and bold colours without going all out.
Your choice of hardware or lighting also plays a large role in the colour story of your kitchen. There are a variety of appliance or utensil materials to choose from, such as glass, copper, stainless steel, and wood. If you have a nautical theme using navy blues and whites in your kitchen, stainless steel appliances and utensils might be the better choice. This also applies to hardware and other accessories such as cabinet door handles. Your countertops and island surface are also important. Dark wood surfaces will look absolutely stunning with dark olive green walls or cabinets. Lighting fixtures can be given finishes in a variety of colours such as gold, black, or silver, or even a combination of these colours.
There are quite a lot of factors to consider when choosing a colour story for your kitchen, whether it be a traditional or modern kitchen.
