Getting the kitchen theme right is important for a successful kitchen remodel in Coeur d’Alene, ID or anywhere else for that matter. So if you want yours to be a success, make sure that your cabinetry and kitchen countertops match your color scheme and overall theme. That’s because keeping everything in theme gives your kitchen a cohesiveness that will give it a stylish and appealing look.
Here’s how to do it:
First, choose your color scheme. The basic foundation of your entire kitchen theme will be the color scheme you decide on. Choose one that is appropriate for a kitchen and, most importantly, one that you like. Pick out two primary colors that complement each other. That way, you will have more opportunities to update your kitchen over time. If you want, you can choose a third accent color to bring the entire room together and give it a little character. If you want a more modern or contemporary style for your kitchen remodel in Coeur d’Alene, ID choose stronger contrasts such as black and white. If traditional kitchens are more your style, choose warmer and more neutral colors with softer contrasts.
Second, create some variation. Don’t choose the same color for your cabinetry and countertops because they may turn out looking dull. For example, if you choose the color white for your cabinetry, don’t go for stark white countertops as well. Match the details of your countertop to your cabinets. If, for instance, you choose a marble countertop that has blue veining, you can complement it with white or blue cabinetry to make the color you want to stand out more without going overboard.
Another important thing is to select a countertop that represents one of your chosen primary colors because it is often the signature piece of the kitchen. With your chosen countertop in mind, you can now match everything else to it.
Third, match the style of your cabinets to your overall kitchen style. When it comes to cabinet frames, they are more suited for traditional kitchen styles whereas frameless cabinets are perfect for modern and contemporary designs. You also need to decide whether you want stock, semi-custom, or fully customized cabinetry. You can just about find cabinets in each category that suits your preferred style. But when it comes to quality, it’s always best to go for fully customized cabinetry because you can choose everything from the style to the type of wood used.
Fourth, make your kitchen island stand out. If you have a kitchen island, it does not necessarily need to match the rest of the countertops and cabinetry around it. Your kitchen island can be a dramatic addition that solidifies the contrast in the kitchen design. But make sure to make it stand out while keeping it in theme with the overall color scheme so that everything is complementary to each other.
