Blue and White Shaker Style Kitchenjustinplace
It is so nice to see that people are experimenting more with colours in the kitchen. Modern grey stainless steel - marble look has some serious competition.
The finishing colour for your kitchen joinery doesn't have to be always white(ish). Yes, you need to think about the colors in the rest of your house/apartment, how do they make you feel, is it something you will get tired of eventually, etc. There are quite a few factors to consider, but at the end of the day you will be spending quite some time in this kitchen - whether you love cooking or entertaining guests, you need to feel comfortable there.
One thing that is becoming more and more popular, is the use of timber in interior design and there are some colours that definitely create an effect next to timber. One of those colours is blue. Not any kind of blue, a dark, navy blue.
Some of the things we love in this project:
- Shaker style cabinets with their recessed panels give more depth compared to flat panels.
- Can you see how upper cabinets are kept neutral white and don't have handles? In this way, your eye doesn't focus on that part and is drawn to the lower part where the gorgeous timber floor with its imperfections shines next to navy blue cabinets. It's all about balance.
- Timber elements are brought in as floating shelves, pendant lights above the counter, and cutting boards - all that on a higher level is tied together with the timber floor on a lower level creating a beautifully smooth transition of timber.
- Carefully designed kitchen meets the family needs - corner pantry, bin drawer etc.
Colour adds playfulness and we all could use a bit more colour in life.
