Colours have an incredible impact on size perception, have a look at the latest and trendy options of colour combinations for all kinds of kitchens
Kitchen design and ergonomics have a very special place in your home interior design plans. It’s the kitchen’s aesthetics that make it look appealing. When it comes to kitchen design, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. The perfect kitchen aesthetics (both colours and accessories) depend on the kitchen size you’re looking at. Different sizes, different plans. Let’s have a look at some of the best kitchen designs for small, medium, and large kitchens. Read on!
Colours are the first thing you notice when you enter any room. Colours do much more than just make a space look pretty and vibrant. They are important in what is known as size perception. When it comes to Kitchen Design, it's not just about choosing the right colours but also about considering the layout and functionality of the space. The right kind of tone can make a compact room look bigger, and a ‘too large’ sized room look ample. You can always change the space’s colour and design according to the kind of vibe you want to bring along. Considering that the kitchen can be a place where at least most of the family can spend a significant amount of time, colour tonnage here is really important. Choosing the best colour combination for the kitchen can create a relaxed feel in your kitchen, and not choosing the correct colours can kill the ambiance.
When you are choosing the kitchen colour combinations, the first point to consider is the current trend. Colour trends keep on evolving to match various tastes and innovation in colour psychology keeps influencing newer design ranges. Keep an eye out for pastel colours as well.
For the sake of measurements, we are defining small modular kitchen as ones that measure approximately 8 feet by 10 feet. Most kitchens in urban India would fit this bill, as they are usually compact kitchens. But you need not worry about your kitchen shades as Asian Paints Beautiful Homes can help you there. Colours can make a space look bigger or smaller. And if you have a small kitchen, paint colours that are lighter shades are the perfect choice to give the appearance of grandeur to the space. If you combine those with cabinets that are reflective (may have a glossy finish), even your compact kitchen can look spacious!
Here are some ideas :
Monochrome shades are a very popular choice for compact kitchen interior designs. Monochrome combinations are subtle, and hence create a contemporary feel for the space. Adding a hint of some darker shades can really open up your kitchen. This is also a very good way to incorporate darker shades like black or navy blue in your kitchen. Usually darker shades need to be avoided when the space is smaller, but adding a dash of some darker shades on a background of lighter shades should help. A monochromatic combination is considered classy and elegant - like black and white. These combinations will help your kitchen from looking cramped or congested. Neutral palettes like pastel greens or greys or beiges or shades of white are also great choices.
Is there any colour that is as timeless and classic as white? White would never go out of style. White is the perfect colour to make any space look bigger. An all-white kitchen would look elegant and dazzling. Although, fair warning - an all-white kitchen design would be very difficult to maintain and clean. Hence, white is usually paired with a colour to maintain well. This is the best part - everything goes with white! Just pick any colour and you’re good. Aqua Blue, or cyan, or gey, or sunset orange, or mauve - anything looks great with white!
Pastels have been among the topmost kitchen design trends for a while now. They are a great choice for compact kitchens and add a feel of continuity to the space. When it comes to pastels, anything goes. Make sure you choose pastels that accentuate your cabinetry and accessories in the kitchen.
For the sake of measurements, we are defining small kitchens as ones that measure approximately 8 feet by 12 feet. This is a measure that is neither too large nor too small. It is just right to be called a well-spaced kitchen. Medium-sized kitchens are the perfect choice for most modern Indian families. Let’s see the combinations that work best for a medium kitchen space.
Grey is a colour that is modern and edgy. It adds a neutral palette to the space. Grey is one of the most important aspects of modern colour designs for kitchens.
Naturally, grey is the colour that wins most millennial hearts. An all-grey tone would be too metallic perhaps, but you can always opt for various shades of grey. Grey kitchen colour combinations can also be paired with other neutral shades.
Whether it is bright sunny yellow or a happy shade of lime, yellow is an insanely brilliant choice to go with. Yellow is a very happy colour. If you are a Vastu person, yellow is a colour that has been approved by the Vastu scriptures for kitchens. If the kitchen is small, yellow may make your space look cramped. But, in a medium or large kitchen, yellow flies. Yellow and white would be the perfect contrasty combination, just like yellow and orange, or yellow and red for your kitchen. Yellow brings about a heavy dose of vibrance in the kitchen and should keep your spirits high. Yellow is also available in various hues like ochre and lemon - so feel free to mix and match for an edgy, appealing vibe.
Royal blue is one of those colours that makes a space look wider. It’s a mature and deep kind of blue and adds a rich vibe to the space. For a medium to large kitchen, Royal Blue would be a perfect addition to the hue chart for your kitchen. Royal blue, when combined with white has a striking effect!
For the sake of kitchen measurements, we are defining large kitchens as ones that measure approximately 10 feet by 12 feet. Such sizes are only available in high rises and if you have one of these, you’re one of the lucky few folks who get a chance to choose a colour for a large space.
Black has an elegance to it that probably no other colour can match. For a large kitchen, black has an appeal that most modern kitchens should have. With black, you can experiment with a ton of patterns on design and tiling.
This is a combination of elegance and beauty. This classy combination will make your kitchen pop and move some heads. This combination gives a perfect balance of dark and light shades and lends a contrast like no other. You can also add dashes of some other dramatic colours that will go well with these.
Wood has a warmth most other colours don’t. Indians love the use of wood as a primary in their interior design. There is something extremely welcoming about wooden tones. Neutral colour combinations like beige and white will keep the wooden attraction string while not making it too woody or monotonous. You can go with dark or light wood defending on the vibe you’re going for.
