31 Aug Cookin’ Color: Bright and Bold Kitchens
By: Danielle Clockel
Kitchens are a big ticket item when it comes to your home’s resale value, and happen to be one of our favorite rooms to design. While a neutral white/grey kitchen is a timeless classic, we’re inspired by those who mix it up with unexpected color.
This sunshine yellow is about as bold as it gets! The calm grey walls provide a necessary balance to the brightness of the cabinets and allows them to really shine.
Maybe a kitchen full of bold paint is a little intimidating for you. Try choosing one piece to be your pop of color, like this lipstick-red Smeg refrigerator.
Want color and pattern? How about an unexpected take on a backsplash: bold wallpaper! In this look, the classic marble countertop and simple hardware keep the vibrant floral wall grounded without squashing its wild side.
Even with a small surface area, you can still make a big statement. Paint your upper walls a solid color, or get funky with positive and negative space.
Thinking outside the box when it comes to your kitchen can be a little daunting. Renovations are a big investment and contribute greatly to the value of your home, but you don’t have to completely sacrifice style! Sometimes a little bit of paint or a single wallpapered wall is all you need to breathe life into your space.
