[AD] Choosing the perfect colour scheme for your kitchen is the starting point to any successful renovation.
But are you finding yourself struggling with where to start?
If the answer is yes, then we are here to help. Let’s take a look at how different tones and shades can compliment and further enhance your kitchen space.
Taking Time To Understand Your Colour Options
Before you even consider choosing which shade of grey you would like, you must understand individual colour schemes and how they compliment each other.
To do this, a simple colour wheel can help you understand the shades that go well together and ones that are on the opposite side for a reason.
You can also analyse your colour choices with an interior professional, as they might consider options that you didn’t even think of before.
Complementing Tones With A Colour Wheel
On the colour wheel you can identify an array of different colour matching options.
For example, complimentary colours are the two colour choices that are placed opposite one another on the colour wheel. These colours are known to compliment each other and as you browse colours for your home, you will move away from the typical primary colours and begin to understand how different shades and tones work in harmony to create a gorgeous colour scheme.
Find A Theme
You may already have a theme in your mind, or you may not. Either way, both options work.
For some people they love a particular theme and want the exact match for their home, whereas others prefer to either combine themes or create something that is unique to them.
When looking at either a specific or unique theme, you still need to take the time to consider the style you want for your kitchen and from there it can help you adapt or enhance any particular colour choices/shades you already have in mind.
For example, you may love a Scandinavian style, but will this work with your current space? If you find it may not, using the time to choose your desired theme can help you either make the starting choice, or influence what you want to achieve.
Work With Your Kitchen
Anyone has the freedom to choose what colours they want to use.
We have all been there, choosing the perfect colour, being adamant that you want that shade and then realising it doesn’t suit your room. It is a horrible feeling, but instead taking the time to understand your kitchen space and lighting before committing, can help save you from that feeling.
If you have a dark, smaller kitchen space, then choosing dark colours will make the room feel smaller, more compact and dark.
For many this is the opposite of what they want to achieve. Instead choose shades that help bounce off and reflect the natural light your kitchen brings in and adding colourful elements will help bring it to life.
If you are on the opposite site of the situation and you feel your large kitchen area is currently too bright, then you could take a look at darker options and experiment with shades in your theme to highlight the main focus points of your kitchen.
If you have no idea where to start, why not take some time to be inspired?
From Pinterest to Instagram, you can find thousands upon thousands of home inspiration accounts that can help you find what you are craving for your home.
Take the time to create your own virtual mood boards and save any that you would love to have. You will begin to see a pattern of the aspects you adore and from there, you can then incorporate that into your new kitchen design.
Also, there is an array of interior design blogs too, just like Fresh Design Blog, not only do these sites help you with inspiration but also provide the advice you need to enhance your interior design choices.
When choosing your kitchen colour scheme, you cannot forget about the all important additional features, such as your appliances and cabinets.
Use your additional elements to help enhance your kitchen style. Choosing bright coloured appliances and cabinets with a subtle tone surrounding the rest of the room can help transform your kitchen space.
The walls are important, but the supporting elements are too.
Choosing your dream colour scheme for your kitchen can take time, but don’t rush with the process. Taking the time to find the perfect colour choices can help transform your space and help you feel happier about your home.
