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.
