Beautiful And Inspiring Blue Kitchens

Do you know what is the most popular color used for home renovations of all kinds? This is blue! There are lots of shades of this color, it’s very versatile and gender-neutral, it’s calming and chic and never goes out of style. No wonder that there are so many blue kitchens around and if you haven’t decided how to incorporate this color into yours, here are some ideas.

Colors And Styles

Decide what shade of blue you will use or will there be several shades in décor? What other colors will you include – neutrals, white, black, greys? Make your kitchen super stylish with touches of brass. Gold or copper such shiny metals usually spruce up cold spaces and make them chic. Your style also matters and I can say that blues go well with any style, from farmhouse to industrial. If you want a moody space, prefer navy and midnight blue, if you are going for a modern light-filled space, think of pastel blues and light shades, and trendy two tone kitchens are also welcome – think navy and white or blue and white to make your space bolder.

Décor

As blue shades are cold, you may want to add something to make the space more inviting, and the first thing that comes to mind is wood. Rich stained wood, brass and gold, copper and plywood – all these things are sure to warm up the space. Hang some cool pendant lamps or chandeliers to make the kitchen catchy and go for cool backsplashes and countertops – they may be the same or different to add even more catchiness to the space. Try a quirky and contrasting kitchen island that will make a statement in the space, it’s a bold trend for now and it’s sure to make your kitchen even more outstanding.

Gorgeous Mid-Century Modern Kitchen Designs

Mid-century modern kitchen designs evolved after World War II, when the postwar housing boom called for an approach that was attainable on a mass scale. The style rose to prominence in the 1950’s and 60’s, these spaces being cozy and welcoming. Today mid-century modern style is definitely back, it’s the new black, and for good reason. This style is flexible and has a wide appeal that spans generations. Millennials appreciate the chic and cozy look, while older homeowners appreciate the style’s sense of nostalgia. Let’s take a look at creating a mid-century modern kitchen that will make everyone happy.

Layouts

Most mid-century modern kitchens were built with a galley style layout, with two parallel countertops and a walking area in between. These kitchens were usually compact, and that can be a challenge when remodeling a mid-century home with today’s storage needs. Today most homeowners opt for a kitchen with a kitchen island to expand the cooking space and make the kitchen more comfortable to use.

Materials And Finishes

Mid-century kitchens have characteristic clean lines, including plain countertops and edges. This minimalist look is in high demand today, so focus on bringing the mid-century kitchen to the 21st century by updating finishes, appliances, and storage. Stay true to the mid-century modern aesthetic, though, by choosing natural, no-fuss materials.

Updated cabinetry can transform the look and feel of the mid-century modern kitchen. Flat-panel cabinets work well with the clean lines of the design style. If opting for a natural wood, a continuous vertical grain direction adds to the detail. New cabinetry also provides a fantastic opportunity to add extra storage solutions to a modest-sized kitchen. For example, there are many creative design ideas to make use of unused corners, including clever diagonal drawers with custom dividers.

Inspiring And Functional Attic Kitchen Decor Ideas

Many people think that the attic room is a big deal. You will have trouble designing the layout as well as try to squeeze your furniture into the corner of the attic. But I’m here to convince you that it’s not so! The attic kitchen decor can be comfortable and functional as well as can look very stylish. see ideas below!

Colors And Styles

What colors to choose for an attic kitchen? As this is often a small space, a neutral color palette can be a perfect solution. You may refresh the space with dark contrasting touches or with shiny metallics. Of course, you may rock a dark kitchen, too, but if the space is small, it can look even smaller, so I’d recommend this idea only for large attic kitchens. If you are choosing a style, try Scandinavian as it’s usually done in neutrals, go for contemporary or minimalist decor to achieve a sleek look – it is important to declutter a small space to make it look bigger. Modern farmhouse and just modern styles are also a very good idea, just keep the kitchen clean and sleek.

Design

First of all, decide what you will have in that attic corner – will these be cabinets? Or a folding table or something else? If you are going for cabinetry, order proper pieces that would be attic, too. If you need a folding table or a seat, order it to make use of this small attic corner. Choose functional kitchen layouts – a galley or an L-shaped one, they will help you save the space and have everything at hand. If the space is really small, a kitchen island can work as a meal space, too. Make sure that you have enough skylights for natural light – it will visually expend the space and let you enjoy the views while cooking. Use lovely tiles for the backsplash and go for chic countertops to make the kitchen more stylish. Get inspired!
