Here are a few tips to revamp your kitchen space by adding an interesting twist to your aesthetics while seamlessly infusing zeal and vibrancy.
Sprinkle some metal
Brass, gold or copper metals with a lustrous shine and finesse, makes your space look distinct. Whether added to your accents or furniture, it enlivens your otherwise simple interiors. While using any metal in your kitchen, remember not to overdo it. For instance, choose a cylindrical ceiling chandelier in a rose gold matte finish which provides depth to your interiors. Use the same metal for your kitchen hardware and sink.
From furniture to floors, decorative laminates are widely used as they are scratch and water-resistant and add an alluring essence to your space. You can use them for cabinets like this Fossil Grey laminate from NewMika with novel gloss texture to accentuate your kitchen. Add an emulsifying contrast by painting your walls with pastel blue or Pantone colour of the year ‘Classic Blue’. Place wooden stools to make some sitting space for breakfast or cooking tasks and add a metallic backsplash to frame a striking ambience that intensifies enthusiasm. To splash some colours, you can also incorporate geometric patterns to your countertop in shades of pink. Lastly, go for white and gold lighting to enhance your metallic décor.
Bake it with wood
A bright and modern kitchen space doesn’t involve too much of a transformation. Start with organizing your appliances, crockery and other accessories neatly to create harmony between elements. Hues of white, when paired with natural wood tones, awakes charm and provides a crisp finish. Mix open shelves with brown wooden cabinets to add a contrasting touch. For instance, this Brunette Walnut from NewMika is a new-age laminate in brushwood texture which intensifies the warmth in your space. To add more character to your kitchen, upgrade your cabinet and sink hardware with silver metals.
For countertops, choose a beige or cream shade to maintain the colour scheme and try to keep it minimal with not more than two elements. This will make way for air and provide a welcoming vibe to your space. If you wish to add a contemporary vintage look, showcase your white ceramics in open shelves. Adorn your windows with white linen curtains and allow the natural sunlight to evoke serenity. To complete this look, introduce a small eat-in-kitchen set-up with a wooden table and two arm-less chairs. This look is pure bliss when you want to enjoy a perfect brunch with your loved ones amidst calm and tranquillity.
Marble holds the power to renew any space with glamour and elegance. When it comes to the kitchen, this material is usually used for countertops. To welcome this year with new beginnings, experiment with marble for your cabinets. The glossy finish of this stone brings about a plush statement just like this Ebony Marbella from NewMika in a bold shade of dark grey. Its cleaved stone texture instantly blends with the white on your walls. Keeping your theme intact, go for utensils and crockery in a black matte finish which adds a luxurious touch to your space.
As far as lighting is concerned, choose metallic bulbs or ceiling lamps to illuminate your interiors. A wooden flooring option in shades of light brown will also compliment your theme. For the dining area, choose a small table and leather cushioned chairs in white colour to build a visual retreat. Using dark shades such as grey along with marble can be tricky, but this home décor look will effortlessly evoke sophistication and grandeur.
