MORE TIPS ON KITCHEN CABINET COLORS

Do you remember the previous post about how to choose kitchen cabinet colours?

If YES-read on for more related tips of the trade!

If NO- I say you go back and read again😊

ANYWAYS...


1)Whites work almost perfect in every kitchen no matter what the surroundings are! And DON'T FORGET;almost all countertop and backsplash materials work great with white cabinets.

2)Bright cabinet colours work best in smaller spaces whereas pastel tones glorify spacious kitchens.

3)Midtones are always safe either way, but they can look outdated very easily. So I say,be bold on the countertop or the backsplash or even both!

4)Lacquer finish has been very popular for years as it can easily be repainted for a brand new look. Personally, it has been my favourite for a really long time and I still can't get enough of it just because of the possible tones of shades.



5)Wood is usually the material of choice for anyone who is looking for a very cosier feel in the kitchen! Somehow , I find them nostalgic as they remind me of the old massive wood kitchens with large cabinets!But, of course many contemporary style cabinets are designed with real wood as well! I suggest using light to mid toned wood with less grains for a timeless look.

BEFORE AND AFTER

One summer ago, a friend of mine and her husband stepped into the office for a bedroom makeover. As I remember then, their major intention was to join the old balcony to the room. By the way, they were expecting their second daughter who was about to be born in a month and YES of course they were in a RUSH❗️

The initial plan was to get rid of the old balcony walls and windows and plan a bigger space. So, we decided to keep the flooring to save ourselves some time and money to splurge on the wallpaper and fabrics...

Another major concern was the poor organisation of their old wardrobe! Sliding doors were not practical for the working couple!Nothing was quite visible and morning dressing ritual was a burden !!!

Therefore, we designed an open walk in closet space for their individual needs.

After planning the fundamental pieces of the bedroom, we still had more space to play around with!Balcony had a nice view and nobody could resist sitting by those windows.SO, we designed a built in seating arrangement and had it custom made to fit our new space.Frankly, I believe the comfy window seat is the reason why the young couple spend so much time in their new bedroom😊

The old balcony floor had ceramics and no new hardwood floor would match the old one.

That is why, we went ahead and changed it with a wall to wall carpeting for a cosier feel.

As the couple desired to sleep facing the windows, we designed a double duty closet door as a bed headboard with MDF backing.And then, we dressed it with the cutest wallpaper which I really fell in love with😍 Seriously,the YELLOW in the paper was our sunny inspiration for the remaining selections of fabrics and accessories.

Despite the crazy humid and hot weather and strict working hours implied by the neighbors,we were lucky enough to finish every detail before the new member of the family arrived👏👏
