Renovating your kitchen is a big investment. Some homeowners tend to hesitate in making bold design choices but it doesn't have to be so scary. When it comes to kitchen design the white shaker door kitchen is always a timeless popular choice. However incorporating colour will elevate that kitchen space and take it to the next level. It not only creates an impact but also gives the kitchen life, personality and can completely transform any space. Adding a pop of colour can be achieved in many ways depending on how big you want to go and your comfort level.
Lets start off big, a fully painted kitchen in beautiful jewel tones like AyA's Midnight Blue or Wintergreen is always refreshing to see and makes a statement no matter the style. It is daring and can create a memorable and exceptional space. A very favourable and on trend look is the duo-tone kitchen, mixing that pop of colour with white, natural wood or neutral grey tones. This approach is a sweet middle ground, its less intimidating and produces a nice dimension to the kitchen. It also provides many options on where to apply the colour, upper cabinets, lower cabinets, island etc giving you the power to choose. Keep in mind you can also mix door styles within your pop of colour selection or combination, the possibilities to personalize your space are truly endless.
The cabinetry is a big ticket item and a big commitment but there are also so many other ways to add colour to your kitchen space. The beauty of adding a pop of colour is that it can also be introduced through any element of the design. You can choose to go bold in your backsplash, floor tile, walls, appliances, hardware, chairs and accessories. A burst of colour or pattern in your backsplash will definitely add some more flavour to your space. It will create a focal point with some visual interest that contributes to the overall feel. It can also be swapped out in the future if you choose to update your kitchen at a reasonable cost. Chairs and stools can also be an design element to provide a source of colour. The style and colour can be as adventurous as you wish to fit your aesthetic, the key is to have fun with it injecting your personality. The same goes for kitchen accessories and decor, keep your kitchen fresh and possibly change your decor palette with the season. Adding a pop of colour to any space can be accomplished in a variety of ways. Pick your comfort level and dare to be different, keep an open mind and make your space unique and special.AyA DOORS OVERVIEW
