Decorating your Boulder, CO, kitchen is not as simple as following clothing trends. It takes a longer view and more careful consideration since you will be enjoying your new kitchen design for years to come. The kitchen is the focal point of the house and is the place where we reconnect with family and friends. Its design deserves to be inspired. At Jacobsen Brothers Painting, we keep an eye on fashion while still understanding the timeless, classic elements that will keep your kitchen remodeling job fresh and keep you inspired as you create your culinary masterpieces. Here are some of our favorite tips for kitchen remodeling:
Quiet the Cabinets
The trend for cabinets is to use a neutral color such as eggshell, ecru, natural wood, fawn, brown or black. This sends the cabinets to the background and allows the focal point to be elsewhere. The interest color is often applied to the walls, floor, ceiling or backsplash. Pastels are a popular choice, with seafoam green in the lead, but burnished bold colors are also gaining ground with hues like burnt umber, pumpkin, deep red and mariner blue.
Break out the Artisan
Showcasing a beautiful vase or keepsake piece that contrasts with your background color is a great technique for creating a museum quality in your kitchen. While collections such as teapots, salt and pepper shakers and old jars have always been vogue, today’s kitchen decorator is taking a more targeted approach by selecting a smaller collection and making sure it pops against the backdrop. Special tract lighting could help achieve this effect.
Veiling the Range Hood
A brief but flamboyant approach of highlighting the range hood in an industrial kitchen has given way to a streamlined look of a homespun kitchen. We can paint your vent to help it blend into the cabinets and disappear the way it is supposed to. The overall look will be one of uniformity and fusion.
Embrace the Earth
Mixing wood, metals and stone is a popular trend in kitchen remodeling right now. Consider using natural wood in countertops, trim and cabinets and offset the look with glossy metals found in pendant lights, focus sinks and stools. Metals are mix-and-match right now and are all the more interesting for it. Sandstone, granite, marble and more can be used in countertops, backsplashes and tiles. These earthy touches do so much to ground a kitchen and allow you to choose an accent color or focal piece that will really stand out.
