There are a number of different style options to consider if you are planning to redecorate your kitchen. Indeed, if you are thinking about how you want your kitchen to look – and how it might relate to the rest of your home – this compilation of kitchen decorating ideas offers the perfect place to start. It is important to consider the room you have available as well as the features and benefits of the space – whether that is limited natural light, a beautiful view, or interesting architectural characteristics.
Colour Schemes for Decorating Kitchens
One of the first things most will contemplate when planning their new kitchen is the colour scheme. A monochrome kitchen like the one pictured can be translated to a plethora of home styles, from a fresh take on a traditional country kitchen to a very up-to-date, modern look. This clean and classic style is timeless; it’s also easy to update by introducing colourful accessories or by changing the wall colour. As such, monochrome is the perfect choice for those who are prone to changing their minds or redecorating frequently. Cabinet frontals are also easy to paint, with a white shade providing the best base should you decide to do this later down the line.
A wallpaper accent is a great way to draw focus to a particular part of a room. If you are looking for kitchen decorating ideas, it is important to ensure you make allowances for the shape of your room when making plans. This wallpapered pillar is a beautiful example of how to use available space effectively. The pillar protrudes into the room, thus preventing an additional wall cabinet from being hung, and as such floating shelves are used instead; these shelves follow the angles of the room and – rather than trying to conceal the pillar – break briefly to draw attention to it. The resultant effect is that of an interesting focal point for the room: an eye-catching feature. Choosing wallpaper with a pattern that includes colours from the rest of the kitchen is important, too, as it helps tie the room together.
