Updating an old kitchen

06-Jun-2019 12:22

A single pop of a retro color such as aqua, melon or chartreuse can be used in a modern way if confined to part of a wall surface, a counter splash-back or a pair of brightly painted stools.

Use primary colors or strong food-y colors such as orange, cherry red or eggplant purple as a single accent against a modern monotone.

Used in monotone, as a finish for cupboards as well as walls, white and pale colors blur the sharp outlines that may make a kitchen seem cramped.

Contrasting color schemes define spaces more clearly than monotone ones, but they are also highly effective at changing perceptions of shapes and space.

One of the qualities distinguishing new kitchens from old is their spaciousness.

Even when the dimensions are not huge, contemporary kitchen design focuses on filling space with light and air.

If cupboards have glass doors, their interiors are a wonderful place to use an accent color, as are the back walls of alcoves or open shelves.

Choose several colors, or several shades of the same color, to turn dull flat-front cabinet doors into an amusing and lively patchwork.
