New kitchen design layouts have a lot to do with these trends. The streamlined modern kitchen designs offers a lot of possibilities and excellent surfaces for great colour matches. While some kitchens include a lot of traditional elements, others are much more modernist in design. The design features that dominate your space will help to determine the best colours for you.
There are three basic types of kitchen:
- Modern kitchens: These kitchens are usually a mix of a facing wall with kitchen fixtures and a stand-alone kitchen bench. They are typically colour matched, usually with neutral tones and metal facings, with dark and light colour schemes.
- Traditional kitchens: These velatest ideasry familiar kitchens include a lot of natural colours, like beautiful stained wood features, plain white cabinets, and often a tertiary muted colour as a central or symmetrical peripheral design feature.
- Hybrid kitchens: These very popular kitchens are actually a mixture of old and new features. They usually have the high functionality of modern kitchen design but incorporate a lot of traditional kitchen features. A basic design theme may include all the high functional steel surfaces, big kitchen benches, and other features, but the design and colour scheme is essentially traditional, often including wood grain and other colour options.
Working with Kitchen Colour Trends
One thing that surprises even interior designers is that modern kitchen designs are so versatile and adventurous when it comes to colour. You can use anything from retro 80s Glam colours to mixtures of steel and black tones.
Similarly, many classic interiors benefit from the fabulous colours of dazzlingly stained wood cabinets. Many of the more muted colour schemes, however, are also very popular. These low-key but exceptionally tasteful colour combinations can be extremely effective.
When matching colours, you can virtually pick any combination of colours you like and simply build them into the kitchen design. When researching your colour choices, take a little extra time to consider combinations. You’ll be astonished at what’s possible with that “Got it right!” selection of colours.
Another very useful trick is to use what’s called “statement lighting” to highlight kitchen features like cabinetry and dining areas. Your choice of lighting also allows you to make sure that there is plenty of light available where you need it. Another useful aspect of statement lighting is that it also allows you to reduce glare and add a range of beautiful decor features to the kitchen space.
