It can be very easy to fall into the trap of a dull and generic kitchen design. We often tend to stick to a colour palette of white and grey because it makes life a lot easier. However, your kitchen is supposed to be a place that inspires creativity. You are going to be cooking meals in this room every day. Don’t you want it to be somewhere that looks innovative and stylish? If you really want to give your kitchen a show-stopping edge you should opt for bright shades. A lot of people are scared to go down this route because they believe it will be overpowering. But if you opt for bright pops of colour like this kitchen you’ll be just fine. Play towards the fun factor with some pop art and contemporary accessories.
Even if the bar stool is the only color in the entire neutral space, it can be enough to add fresh life and personality. You’ll want to measure your counter height and make sure there is enough space between the bar stool seat and the bottom of the counter. A 10”-12” difference is recommended for optimum comfort and functionality. Metal has many benefits as a bar stool medium. It is durable, easy to clean, and stylishly versatile. Metal bar stools also tend to be visually lighter-weight than other types of stools, which is definitely something to keep in mind. By their very nature of being wood, wooden frame bar stools tend to carry more visual punch than other materials, which are able to be manipulated for weight-bearing capacities. Wooden frames can be quite versatile, as they look fantastic in a cottage setting as well as provide a lovely earthy contrast in a more contemporary one.
As mentioned earlier, a splash of colour provides you with an easy yet effective way of bringing a beautiful yet bold colour into the kitchen. This is exactly what we see here with the splash of green. Green is great because it offers the ideal blend between calming yet energising qualities. If you want to bring blue into your kitchen but don’t want to go down the icy palette, this option is for you. This kitchen is classy, sophisticated and elegant. It has that traditional charm offered by the wooden features yet the blue ensures it is far from boring. If you want to bring bright colours into your kitchen without causing a headache, this is the option to go for. Opt for a white base and then bring pops of various vibrant shades into the equation. Fun, funky and fresh!
If you’ve got a free wall, use one bar to hang up all the pots. Do it cleanly and crisply for an eclectic and stylish look. It’s also a great way to organize your pots and pans while still being able to find them in a jiff. Create a sort of valence by using your pots as the window dressing. Between the light and the texture, this is another functional and stylish way to organize the pots and get them out of the cabinets.
