The Classic Color Ideas For Your Modular Kitchen

As we think about getting our kitchens renovated, what do we think of doing first?

The first thought is always about colors.

Sure, there are cabinets to be changed, the countertop to be revived, and certain finishes to be given. But what use would all of these accessories be, without a color in our minds? One simply cannot go about deciding on themodular kitchen design ideas without taking color into account.

So, here are a few very chic, and very classic colors that you could seldom go wrong with, for your kitchen!

The Elegant Navy

Oh so serene, this color never fails to come across as something that’s chic and sophisticated! It kind of reminds one of one of those really crisp navy blue suits the tone wears with clean white shirts, or even wood-finished cabinetry that look gorgeous in navy blue. With the right kind of lighting, you can have a lot of fun with this color in your kitchen. You can also think different ways in which you could introduce the color – like, a single mosaic tile, or navy bar stools for your island counter, or something like that. But simply having navy blue walls, with maybe a touch of gold or gray would be totally awesome too!

The Ever Impressive Metallics

What’s the harm in having a little glitz here, a bit of glamour there! We say, there’s no harm, plus we think it’s absolutely needed! Modular kitchen designs are incomplete if we don’t find a way to add a some of the classic metallic to it. With really classy silver, brass, or copper accents, you can make your kitchen have that extra bling, without having to dig deep in your pockets. Also, a superb lighting would give that little accentuation, a little extra shine! And as you follow this addition with say, a brass teakettle, or rimmed drinkware, you know you have a perfectly dashing kitchen in your hands!

Gray and its Shades!

Everyone who said that grays are boring didn’t actually see gray in all its glory! One of the cleanest and chic colors, gray used properly, extends subtlety and elegance to space. Instead of going for small accessories, make gray go for larger features. So, a great way to use this color to your advantage would be painting your cabinets gray. Or, you could even take a feature wall, and paint it thus. The other ideas include choosing graystone for your countertop or having your kitchen floor made from ash-gray herringbone tiles. A textured wood or polished brass finish would go brilliantly with this color.

How Your Countertop Could Help You Reinvent Your Kitchen Design!

Countertops are the first thing we see when we enter a kitchen, and to say that we have never really given much thought to making the counter space more creative and more lively, just seems so unimaginable! But, it is absolutely true!

Modern day modular kitchen designs, though, are incomplete without their countertops being livened up. And therefore, we have come here with more than just a few ways to revv up your kitchen countertop, and thereby your whole kitchen:

  • Single colored countertops and cabinetry has almost always been a norm; so how about making the kitchen space a bit more lively? How about, having your countertop and cabinets in at least two contrasting colors? You could go for black and white – a bold choice that would be, nevertheless timelessly classic! Or, you could go for the refreshing lime green, sunny yellow, and such.
  • Instead of a plain colored countertop, you could even opt for something that’s patterned. It would pique the interest of anybody who visits your kitchen even once! For this, one of your options could be going for a striped or textured stone material.
  • Another way to introduce style to your kitchen would be by choosing a thick, that is around 3 – 5” thick countertop which gives your kitchen space a very stately look. You would, of course, have to adjust your cabinets’ heights accordingly, but it would be worth it!
  • When does anyone have to have seconds thoughts about using wood in the kitchen? The answer is, never. And the reason is, the kind of warm and elegant look that wood is able to give to a kitchen space is absolutely unrivalled! Wood butcher block countertops give a very timeless and classic look to the kitchen space, which is almost alway like by one and all!
  • While granite is quite the common option to choose for countertop materials, using stainless steel would be a refreshing choice to make! Not only would it give the kitchen a very different, yet fashionable look to your kitchen space!
  • Zinc is another metallic option that you could go for, and see your countertop develop a beautiful blue tone; especially as water or oil spills over the countertop, over time, will give it a rich toned look – much like the countertop’s own distinct metallic signature!
  • Going for a single color for your counter space, you could instead try something offbeat to make your modular kitchen design stand out from the crowd. You could choose a two-toned countertop, which would not only look extremely high-design but look like one of those really professional countertops found in chefs’ kitchens! You could use the combination of cold marble and stainless steel, or anything else you might deem fit!
