Add Style in a Colorless Kitchen
Simplistic designs are as hot as these colors are now. For example, gray shaker cabinets offer a simply style that will compliment a modern look without appearing too flashy. Homeowners that want to stick with these colors should go with this style to make a modern kitchen shine more than ever.
For inspiration, look back on the Shaker movement. This is when the cabinets became more popular than ever, but that is not all that was created. The Shaker movement consisted of all kinds of chairs, etc. based on the belief that less is more. Merely browsing through pictures from the Shaker movement will help give anyone ideas on how to add style while maintaining simplicity.
Contrast is the perfect way to spice up anything. For example, painting a delicate white flower on the door of gray cabinets is an affordable way to add elegance. For homeowners that want to stick with the crisp, clean lines that modern styles are known for can still add some contrast to the area. Hang some black shelves on a white wall and then add in some straight white lines on the gray cabinets instead of a flower.
These colors may seem boring, but they give the perfect opportunity to include the ideal amount of contrast and style to every cooking area.
Cut back on gray
This color is best used for appliances and storage along the edges of the area instead of accent pieces. Gray Shaker cabinets have never gone out of style, and they coordinate perfectly with any theme. Every cabinet will look great in this color, and then the rest of the area can be decked out in black and white for the perfect color combination. Use contrast and a simple style as before mentioned in combination with this tip to make a room more appealing than ever before.
Add some color
Whether a lack of color is all the rave now or not, if it makes a homeowner want to avoid cooking in their own home due to the cold, calculating feel that it gives off, it's best to forget about the trends and add some color. Hang up some interesting wall art, include a few different accent pieces and pick up a fun rug to put down on the floor; whatever it takes to help a home showcase the personality of the homeowners.
Famous decorators recommend using red and orange for adding warmth; brighter, fun colors like yellow and purple add energy, and shades of tan can be used to help colors blend together.
Trends are always fun, and they can be a great way to get the creative spark going in homeowners that are searching for redecorating ideas. On the other hand, trends can also lead to homeowners being full of redecorating remorse. These stylish tips will help transform a homeowner that is full of remorse into a homeowner that loves the area that they live in, and cook in, once again as they slowly make it showcase their wonderful personality.
