So want to know the cheapest, easiest tip to make your kitchen truly pop? A tip you can even do yourself if you do not mind putting in a little sweat? Painting! Certain pops of colors can truly make any kitchen space pop, even if it may seem a little tricolored, or wild it can surely make a true statement.
Earlier this week I saw this kitchen in a magazine that had four different colored cabinets, crazy huh? But I have to say, it looked absolutely breathtaking. The way they took the colors and put them in certain areas around the kitchen truly made the multicolor design seem magnificent. They had a moody blue on the lower cabinets, darker shade on upper cabinets, a white island, and cream colored cabinets over the hood and cooktop. They were able to tie the whole space together by having the countertop, hardware, and hardware finish coordinate throughout the space.
Anyways, after throwing that crazy color idea your way, let me give you some tips on how to add that pop of color on a smaller scale. The hot colors for 2017 seem to be the grays, whites, and lighter blues. Other colors that are becoming popular in the market are warmer neutral colors. Color trends of 2017 are really being influenced by fine arts, demographics, and nature.
If you are looking for that pop of color my biggest recommendation is to paint the cabinets of the island a different color than the rest. If your cabinets are white, or gray paint the island a different complimentary color. Just enough of a change to give you the newness you are craving. Now if you do not have an island, consider painting the upper cabinets a white or creme color, and painting the lower cabinets a gray color. That way you will still get some variation of color but it won't be something that blows your guests away.
Now these are just some very small tips from a girl who loves colors of any kind, but I would love to hear your ideas as far as popular color trends and tips for kitchens.
