One option for your kitchen that will never completely go out of style is the white kitchen. When thinking about having a white kitchen, there are some things to keep in mind. You want to make sure that you don’t completely wash out your room. You want to be able to see the white and create a visual appeal that will delight the eye. There are several ways to do this. Here are a few.
When considering a kitchen of one color, you want to use varying hues, tones, and tints of that color. For the white kitchen, this means using varying degrees of white around the room. You should pick the main shade of white for the biggest areas of the room, and then add accent shades of white to add depth to the room. Another area you can review is if you have exposed wood as part of the room. You can whitewash this to help soften the look. When considering warm and cool shades, it is best not to mix them. Warm shades of white will have a yellow tinge to them and cool shades will be bluer.
Another way to create visual interest in your room is to use different textures/materials within your color spectrum. This could mean that you have fabric seats on the chairs at your kitchen table. You can have fabric window treatments, rugs, placemats, etc. You can incorporate shiny and matte elements around your space, and smooth and coarse elements as well. This can be found in the fixtures, the appliances, the hardware, and the lighting elements. The use of stone countertops with natural variations in them will also add to the visual complexity of the room.
For your lighting needs, you want to make sure that your room gets adequate light, both natural and from fixtures, without washing out the room. You want to make sure it is enough without being too bright. Some things to consider are how much light will bounce off the walls and objects in the room. This will affect how much light is necessary for the room. Additionally, how much natural light enters the room and how dark the room becomes at night will also factor into how much lighting is needed. You can also adjust how the light reacts to the room through the use of shiny and matte finishes on the various elements in the room.
To keep the visual appeal of the room from looking sterile, you can add greenery in the form of plants or wood/dark flooring to catch the eye because the entire kitchen does not need to be white from floor to ceiling.
