The secret to using colour is to use it carefully. While trends help to inspire, it is wise to not be a slave to trends. We know that since there are bazillion shades to choose from, you can get confused. However, you can make liberal use of your favourite shade or colour combination in the kitchen.
If you are in need of inspiration to revamp your kitchen walls, you can try a cheerful shade like yellow. Just like a ray of sunshine, yellow can infuse warmth and positivity to the entire space. You can also opt for shades like warm red or deep blue for a classy look. You can use such hues as an accent colour if you find it overwhelming to be used all throughout the kitchen area.
When we speak of hues, it doesn’t mean we overlook the ceilings. You can add pop of colour on the ceiling of the kitchen as well. The hue on the ceiling is bound to draw the eyes up, making the room feel spacious. You can try shades like navy for a dramatic effect. Since dark shades can make the ceiling feel lower, spaces with high ceilings or natural light in abundance make an excellent choice to experiment with a darker shade. You can also opt for shades such as orange or turquoise to add interest to any space. You can also opt for decorative glass coated ceiling panels for a unique touch. Paint over glass tops, doors and windows of the kitchen as well. Berger’s Imperia Gold Glass Coatings allows you to do that and comes in Clear as well as in Opaque variety. In the clear variety, you pick between matt and gloss- both of which can be tinted with Imperia Gold dyes to get a stunning stained glass and frosted colour look.
Lighting can create the perfect mood and transform the setting of the kitchen. You can add a brightly coloured light pendant to the centre of the kitchen to make a bold statement. It can also look wonderful hung over a dining table and a breakfast bar. You can also try pendant lights in different hues and in varying heights to add some pleasing visual effect to the kitchen. There are options galore when it comes to lighting fixtures so you can choose ones that suit your tastes and needs.
Painted in an effervescent hue with complementing décor elements, your kitchen can become a much-loved area of your home.
