Kitchen Makeover Must Haves: Why Your Colours and Materials Matter?10 February 2022
It takes a lot of research to find the perfect materials and colour schemes for your new kitchen project. Since the kitchen is one of the most important areas in a home, it is essential to know the difference between the options out there. Selecting the right materials can make a difference in the atmosphere of your kitchen space. They own a lot of visual real estate, and instantly set the tone for your overall design.
Cabinet Materials and Colours
There’s a reason that cabinets should be your first consideration when choosing the right materials and colour scheme for your kitchen. No matter what material and colour scheme you use, kitchen cabinets will still typically consume half your kitchen renovation budget because they take up approximately 40 per cent of the visual space in your kitchen. So it would be a good idea to use your choice of kitchen cabinets as the foundation for future material and colour choices. Choose a colour, texture and material that fits the personality, budget and style of your home. Do not overthink things just yet. Select cabinets that speak to you.
Appliance Materials and Colours
You may opt for built-in appliances. Built-in goods will likely be tucked behind your choice of cabinetry. If you’ll go with the freestanding appliance, you’ll have to consider how the appliance fronts match with the rest of your cabinets. Your cabinetry cannot be finalised until you know which appliances you intend to purchase. When it comes to appliances, your fridge, dishwasher and sink will have the biggest impact on your kitchen colour scheme. You’ll want your appliances to look ‘part of the plan’. To do that, choose appliances that complement your cabinet colour scheme. Consider matching white goods with white or light grey cabinetry. Stainless Steel appliances go well with brown hues, vibrant colours and shades of grey. These things might seem obvious at first, but it’s something many people get wrong.
Select your Countertops
Your choice of kitchen countertops is an important decision for many reasons. Other than practical and budget considerations, countertops are often close to eye level – occupying a significant portion of your visual space. If there’s no cohesion between the countertops and cabinets, the visual harmony in your kitchen will fall apart. When selecting countertops, you have to eliminate any options outside your budget. Then, consider the colour of your existing kitchen floor. Matching these two colours is a fool-proof way of ensuring good colour coordination. If you intend to upgrade or replace your floors, use a sample of your kitchen cabinets to guide you in selecting your countertops.
