This video will focus on perhaps one of the most important considerations in decorating a kitchen – having a timeless look. By keeping kitchen cabinets, countertops, and floors simple, one gains the advantage of having a good neutral base to work with.
In that way, it’s easy to accent the kitchen with more daring colors without overwhelming the room.
To decide on a color scheme, use a color chart to pick two simple, complementary colors for the kitchen’s main theme. The kitchen cabinets, countertop, and floor will take up these main colors.
To make the somewhat muted room pop, add a third more vibrant color for those easily replaceable objects such as kitchen stools and placemats. However, when choosing the countertop, aim to have a cohesive look with the kitchen cabinets and floor.
Colors for the backsplash and small accessories such as doorknobs and taps are great ways to add more personality to the kitchen. For example, doorknobs and handles can have chrome or satin finishes to make them stand out.
Overall, the goal is to make the room come alive without having to change the costlier, more permanent parts of the kitchen.
