Kitchen is a real challenge in terms of decorating, as it is one of the most problematic spaces in every house, right next to a hallway and a bathroom. This is due to the chaos, which enters the kitchen from every corner all the time while we are constantly trying to avoid it… At the same time this is the most frequented place at home – not only while cooking, but also during the morning coffee and evening tête-à-têtes accompanied by a mug of hot chocolate. We would all love to spend time in a functional, besides cozy kitchen. What to do to fulfill these two goals? We have some useful guidelines for you!
Think synesthetically – have in mind the colours
You have to feel comfortable in your kitchen to enjoy all thing you do there: cooking, eating, spending time with your family. But how you can prepare delicious meals full of love if there is a wrong colour on the wall or on the furniture that makes you anxious? Organizing and decorating your kitchen, remember both about functionality and simplicity, keeping in mind the important role of colours. It is essential for this very special space at home to be harmonious and in contact with your inner energy. We advise you to go for uniform colours of walls and furniture – they don’t have to be neutral, but it’s the key they are consistent. And with this approach get the colourful details. Also, no more than one wall can be dedicated to a more crazy idea… but more on that in the following paragraph.
What colours to choose, therefore, to your kitchen? First of all, those that emanate with good vibes and energy! Minimalism is a trend, but I think it’s also everlasting, so you might want to have some simple kitchen cabinets. As for the colours, I love kitchens in pink, yellow and mint – and I would recommend those colours for you too.
PINKY, BUT NOT SWEETY
If you like candy climates and have a soft spot for the 70s style, try the pink colour in the kitchen: whether more pastel shades or bright tight hues.
Experiment with furniture and with walls – you will give new life to a retro chest of drawers painting it in a pastel pink, and you will revive tattered stools with fluorescent pink and some gold paint. You may also paint one wall with strong pink.
Yellow walls and accessories will wake you up every morning during breakfast. In the evenings, they will turn into extinguished, honey shades… Mix he canary yellow with white – the yellow can be just a small accent: front of a cabinet or a tiled wall above the kitchen worktop. Choose some yellow add-ons: elements of decoration, furnishings and dinning accessories.
Mint is a sensation of this season, not only in the interior design, but also in fashion. Why not to try it in kitchen as well? Well, this slightly greenish pastel color will cool the interior, thus is suitable for every kitchen with windows to the south. There are also many kitchen accessories in this color on the market.
Mint tiles and mint furniture and walls covered with mint color tinted glass will work enormously good in kitchens.
Learn an Art of Storage!
As you surely know, nice colours are not enough to make your kitchen looks decent. You also need functional solutions that allow for smart storage of all kitchen equipments (including those not so charming) away from our eyes (at least for the time when they are not necessary).
Decorate kitchen walls and furniture
There is usually little room in the kitchen for fancy accessories, so the only place where you can REALLY go crazy is the wall. If you have small children, paint one wall with a special blackboard paint. We recommend you also decorating walls with a wall mural or poster from PIXERS.
