Most colors are exploited creatively in modern and ultra-modern kitchens but in today’s trend, most people have the freedom of mixing old and new to create a statement. Some would use neutral colors on the walls and flooring and puts the drama on the choice of style, texture, and colors to their cabinetry and appliances. Clever applications and use of colors on the upholstery will complement or provide contrast to the color scheme which can be eye-catching and chic. In today’s style of modern interior fashion, black has been one of the favorites for urban elegance and sophistication. Hues like orange and deep crimson add warmth and depth. Some choose to use whimsical kitchen colors, floral fabrics, and ceramics that serve as eye candies.
Neutral colors are still classic. It would make a lot of sense if you are building to sell as any prospective buyer may not appreciate your lime green and orange cabinets. A lot of people still prefer the sleek and minimalist look with the use of lattes and mochas, whites, and creams and just choose vibrant colors for pots and pans and other appliances. The trick is to add and create a feeling of a larger space when using neutral shades and the clever use of storage space. While you may be too preoccupied and excited with choosing colors to use, never forget that space’s functionality and the durability standards of all the materials to use are given more importance than aesthetic considerations.
Some important guidelines for using different kitchen color schemes:
• Monochromatic scheme uses one color then combines it with several tints, tones, and shades of that color.
• Complementary scheme brings a deep and strong appeal and forceful energy with the use of two opposite colors.
• Analogous color scheme are three hues of warm or cool colors in combination.
• Neutral colors are the most versatile and can be combined with almost any color to accentuate and add beauty.
Good lighting also provides an emphasis on creating an intensity of your color scheme. With smart lighting, you can accentuate or diminish features, whichever way is required. The best colors, as most would approve, are still the colors of nature. Whatever scheme and design you decide on for your kitchen designs ensure that quality and durability isn’t compromised.
