Color selection in different shape kitchen
Gone are the days when the kitchen used to be place for the ladies only. It used to be a place for cooking, cleaning fruits and vegetables, washing utensils and so on. But in the modern times, kitchens have seen a great makeover. And this has become possible with the coming of modular kitchens. In majority of modern apartments and houses, modular kitchens are installed. These kitchens are exclusively designed to save space, utilize maximum available space, create storage opportunities and keep the kitchen clean and clutter free.
Shapes of modular kitchens
Modular kitchens come in various shapes. The most common ones are ‘L-shaped’, ‘C-shaped’ and ‘U-shaped’ kitchens. Depending on the shape and size of the kitchen, the design of the modular kitchen is decided. Some modular kitchens also have an island in the center, which doubles as the dining table along with being a storage space in the kitchen.
Color patterns in kitchen
The design of the kitchen plays a pivotal role in deciding the color patterns that are used in the place. If the kitchen is small, using light colors is recommended as it gives a sense of spaciousness. White, light blue, light green are best colors for kitchens which are small. These colors help in maximum reflection of light and make the place look spacious.
On the other hand, if the kitchen is slightly big, some darker shades can be used. Instead of painting the kitchen walls in darker shades, it is better if the cabinets are done in darker shades like blue, red or other dark colors. In contrast to this, the wall colors should be kept light so that there is balance.
Along with colors of the cabinets and the walls, the colors of wall tiles, floor tiles, countertops and other accessories should also be decided. To give the kitchen a bold look, contrasting shades can be used in the accessories. However, people who love soft shades and hues can keep a uniform pattern in the color selection.
Seeking help from a professional interior designer for color patterns in kitchens
Whether you have L-shaped, U-shaped or C-shaped modular kitchen design, using the correct color pattern is important for making the place look attractive and appealing. In U-shaped and C-shaped kitchen, the cabinets come to the notice right on entering the kitchen. Therefore in these kitchens, the cabinets should be highlighted with a dark color. In contrast, the wall color, the countertop and the other accessories can be in light shades.
Again in L-shaped kitchens, lighter shades are preferred as the walls get more prominence in this shape when compared to the cabinets and other accessories.
If you are confused about color pattern selection for your modular kitchen, it is recommended to seek assistance from a professional interior designer. He/she will be able to study the whole kitchen pattern and then suggest colors which will be most suitable for the place. Infact the designer can also help you in showing how the kitchen will look with varied color patterns on the computer. You can finally decide the color pattern which looks most suitable in the modular kitchen.
