Open shelving is everywhere right now, and we love it. Obviously there are pros and cons to this look, but when it’s done right, it can add extra color and personality to any kitchen decor. Open shelves are a great solution for small and large kitchens alike and create an open, airy energy in your kitchen. It’s also a great way to keep track of your items and keep clutter to a minimum. If you’re considering giving open shelves a shot or are just feeling the itch to redecorate your shelves, we’ve got 22 genius tips on how to have the most stylish kitchen in town.
Subtle Pastels Pastel-colored kitchens are trending as a way to create a pop of color and interest without making a room’s aesthetic too heavy or dark. Especially popular pastel choices include pale shades of blue and green.
In addition to a timeless look, white can make a small kitchen feel bigger and brighten a room that lacks adequate natural light. And while you don’t want to offend anyone’s taste with your kitchen design, you also don’t want a white kitchen to feel bland. Add depth by using accent colors and insert personal style in changeable features like light fixtures, furniture and cabinet pulls.
Colors to suit every design style: Is your design style eclectic or ultra edgy that you don’t want to see your interiors in everyone else’s house? Modern styled cabinetry has color choices from cobalt blue to lemon yellow, and every color in the spectrum you can fathom. For those of you that enjoy a kitchen that will represent your personality, cabinetry that exudes color and definition doesn’t require ornamentation and detail. Minimal décor is required, as your cabinetry sets the stage for the entire space!
The kitchen island often features a sizable slab of countertop so this can be used strategically to brighten up the space, or add detail that complements pure white features elsewhere in the room. Add contrast by choosing a different material than you used for the countertops. It’s pretty likely that the island will be where a lot of food prep and entertaining takes place, so depending on how you plan to use the kitchen island itself think about the material and how high maintenance it is.
Customize your kitchen experience by adding cabinets that reflect your personal style. Just as there is an unlimited number of colors, cabinet styles too are limitless! Choose your style and then start grabbing inspiration. If you still feel lost, consider hiring a kitchen designer that can help you take your ideas and make them a reality!
