Function doesn’t have to override fun, especially in a space where we spend so much time. Color can also make a room much more approachable. So try these five bright ideas and encourage guests to gather in the kitchen.
It doesn’t take a neon island to brighten a kitchen though. Muted tones can also have a big impact. Bottom line: Choose a color that makes you feel happiest.
2. Seating That Stands Out
If you’re not ready to commit to a color quite yet, bar stools are a baby step in the right direction. Without investing in a major design rehaul, this kitchen gets its contemporary vibe from four simple and extremely sunny stools.
3. Find the Right Rug
Rugs can give a room some major personality. Texture, pattern and color play in this Los Angeles kitchen creating a comfortable space with a lot of character.
4. Look to the Nook
Enjoying your morning cup of coffee from a corner piled high with pillows sounds like a dream. After cozying up to the kitchen table, you may even forget that you had to get out of bed to make that coffee. Mix and match cushions and pillows in your favorite colors for a brand new look.
5. Bring Color With Cabinets
Whether you’re refacing cabinets or customizing new, consider venturing away from typical wood tones. Colorful cabinetry may take some courage, but you don’t have to go all out. Black upper cabinets and countertops tone down a row of rich red lower cabinets in this modern kitchen.
Similarly, this single row of blue cabinets are balanced by white walls and a wooden countertop.
