Simple Kitchen Colour Trends to Keep in Mind:
Pantries and cabinets are the biggest trend of the year because they allow for storage space and organization. If you are looking to renovate your kitchen, you’ll want to carve out a space for cabinet cupboards and closets. Adding pantries to your kitchen is a great opportunity to play with the colours and the balance of your kitchen space. These will accentuate the kitchen or blend in. Since there are infinite possibilities of colours you can accessorize your kitchen with, we have made it simple! We have consolidated a list of the all-time favourite kitchen trends for 2018 and 2019!
Grey paint is the new thing, but also whites!
White and grey (dark) colours are the easiest to play with when it comes to aesthetics. These colours give a clean and modern look to most and any space at home. White and grey have proven to be timeless by providing elegance and beauty in simplicity. That is why white features and dark colours are the go to colours when planning for renovation.
Since this is our favourite 2018 trend, we have brought to you this beautiful Charcoal Nahanni Kitchen and this is all you need to know to apply colour in your kitchen reno:
Features: Floating shelves, white surface islands, grey cabinets, white tile.
Add floating shelves as accent pieces. We have added a feature island and matched the shelves to bring together the design of a modern kitchen. The accent and island counter give the kitchen a clean and spacious feel.
The biggest trend as of now is to add white countertops and shades of grey or black. In doing so, we have created a great contrast between bold accents and the features.
Tip: White and dark tones allow you to style with pretty much any colour.
