IDEAS FOR DECORATING A MULTICOLORED KITCHEN
The kitchen is one of the parts of the house that we tend to pay more attention to when we think about changing domicile. When we are young, we do not give much importance to space, but over the years we value dimensions, ventilation, work zones, lighting, comfort and equipment. We even analyze whether or not the design respects the famous “triangle”, that imaginary space that should allow easy access to the three basic areas of the kitchen: stove, refrigerator and sink.
But the functional aspects are not everything in a kitchen. If we propose, space can become a fun and inspiring place; a genuine and personal corner that responds to our needs without abandoning grace and style. And in that task, the colors play a very important role.
Combination of Styles
Throughout this year a trend has been consolidated in kitchens that was already in place in 2016: the taste for the eclectic. Behind are the uniform styles that forced to dress the houses under a single decorative criterion. Nowadays it takes diversity in all spaces, even in the kitchen.
Stamped papers, hydraulic tiles next to designer furniture, stone walls with bold lamps, so are the new kitchens of the moment. The strangest combinations work and bring personality to the whole.
As for the colors, continue to mark black and gray, alone or combined with other shades. One proposal that is very attractive is to place gray furniture in white kitchens, or to paint some wall in black to add a greater contrast.
The combination of black, gray and white may seem cold, but we can break that feeling and get our multicolored kitchen bringing different tones with appliances. Orange refrigerators, red coffee makers, blue toasters … of all we can find currently in the market to create atmosphere in the kitchen and brighten the working environment.
Getting these colorful appliances does not have to be especially expensive. It is true that some well-known brands, such as the Italian Smeg , are not very affordable for most pockets, but the price of a Dolce Gusto , for example, is not very expensive and we can find it in red, blue, gray and even orange (I taught mine in this article about my kitchen ).
Lamps and Bells
Other points of the kitchen in which we can incorporate color are the lamps and extractoras bells. Although stainless steel hoods are used in most designs, it is increasingly common to find innovative designs that play with color and even unusual shapes.
The same thing happens with the lamps. The classic ceilings have gone down in history. Today, colorful pendant lamps with integrated lighting are combined in the furniture, so that all corners and work surfaces receive adequate light.
Crockery and Glassware
To finish adding color to our kitchens, nothing better than using utensils, crockery and glassware in cheerful tones. The autumn catalogs of the specialized companies show the new tendencies, where the relief vessels predominate with yellow, green crystals, lilacs or with silk-screened flowers. In crockery, it emphasizes the crockery in yellow or cognac or the designs in white with colored edges.
