A fairy tale in green
Let’s start strong with my favourite colour of all time! Green is by far the most soothing and super trendy colour this year when it comes to interior design and fashion. So, if you don’t like the all-white monochromatic look of your kitchen, why not paint your cabinets and drawers green? To bring some freshness to your kitchen, you can paint it in a mint green colour. If you’re a maximalist and love darkness and colour mixing, the trendy dark green kitchen is for you! If this is still too simple for you, why not add a coloured kitchen credenza to bring in more colour?
Modern white and wood design
“Modern kitchen design” may seem vague to you. But it is very close to the minimalist style. It consists of lighter colours, fewer crazy patterns, lots of simplicity, open spaces and few distracting decorations. Think of it as a very clean type of design. For the white and wood kitchen, I suggest you stay away from bright colour palettes. Instead, opt towards the neutral side and do a wonderfully simplistic, yet modern, mix of brown and white. That way, even if you have a small kitchen, you’ll make it look optically larger and tidier. You can introduce some colour by adding lamps in a shade other than white or brown. Maybe a colour that makes you feel relaxed and makes you think of happy memories.
Vintage wood kitchen
Class never goes out of style… That’s why our grannies’ favourite designs are always at the top of the trends! Wood is a beautiful material that can be very versatile and works with almost any kitchen style. So, here I’m recommending white painted walls with light brown wood wall shelves (preferably cherry, white oak or birch). The same goes for the cabinets. Embellish with simplistic pastel decorations for a little colourful fantasy, but keep it understated and elegant.
Industrial design in black and white
If the modern, vintage or colourful kitchen is not your style, then you may have a taste for industrial. Industrial is still quite modern, but much more raw. What does this mean? This kitchen design is pretty simple and consists of having raw materials such as exposed metals as the main characters in the interior. But how do you achieve this with wood? It’s pretty simple! Industrial is moving away from chic and elegant and will welcome any type of wooden furniture or decorations with open arms. Your table can be made of wood too, or why not experiment with metal?
