The kitchen is a changing beast. It continually evolves and perhaps more so than other rooms because it is such a high traffic zone in the home. Perhaps more than any other space in the home, the kitchen loves to evolve it’s materials. Once upon a time, wood was the dominant material in the whole home, including the kitchen. But as technology evolved so too did the materials we use in the kitchen. Metal arrived in abundance and then shortly, glass and plastics. These things do influence our kitchen style but as of late, designers have wanted to get back to basics and support styles that make things more homely.
For a long time, the white cabinets have been everywhere in the kitchen. However, designers think that what could influence us to create better kitchens is to inject a bit of green. This is why green cabinets have made an appearance in some celebrity homes. Celebs always turn to the top designers in any given industry to help them, and when it comes to interior design, all the designers wish for more green in the home. Green cabinets is just one place to start, if you would prefer for the green to be situated lower in the kitchen then go for green drawers instead. To go with the green cabinets, you need contrasting handles such as earth tone brown or maybe even a pale grey. Get creative and don’t have handles, just notches you can stick your finger in to open.
Going all the way
If you would like to have a thorough kitchen makeover then you should call kitchen remodeling contractors. Ask them about the latest kitchen designs and how your overhaul could reflect modern styles. This might be in the form of a tuxedo kitchen, with the white at the bottom and the black up top. You would have white drawers, countertops, appliances and utensils but you would have black cabinets and pendant lighting. You may also want to incorporate modern appliances that can fit away in little spaces or inside the drawers.
You need more texture
For a long time, the philosophy of design in the kitchen was to have smooth surfaces. These were meant to make it easier to clean, look great and make them easy to maintain or repair. But this caused a flood of vinyl and synthetic quartz to make an appearance. Nowadays, real materials aren’t just desired for their eco-friendly approach but because they provide different textures. You could have real quartz, mixed with wooden cabinets, mixed with clay tile walls and different types of wood for the hanging racks, and doors. Of course, wood can be carved with different patterns, making drawer and cabinet doors more interesting to touch.
Designers usually get their way eventually, as all modern interior design companies will begin to offer more of these items and styles. Beat them to the punch before they jack the prices up due to supply and demand!
