As the Spring season gets well underway, now is the ideal time to start redecorating your kitchen. It is unlikely that you can afford to purchase new countertops or paint the walls every year, but you can give your kitchen a fresh new look using less permanent means.
Adding a pop of colour is the best way to help your kitchen emerge from the winter blues. It is an affordable means of redecoration that can completely transform the look of your kitchen as we enter a sunny new season. Deciding on a colour can be difficult but Pantone offers up a helpful guide. Every year, Pantone chooses trending colours for, and 2014 presents some beautiful shades that will certainly bring new life to your kitchen. For noticeable pops of colour, the following shades are recommended:
Radiant Orchid, Cayenne and Dazzling Blue are bold colours that will bring an exciting energy to your kitchen during the spring and summer seasons. Bright and bold kitchens are great for entertaining guests throughout the summer months.
Placid Blue, Hemlock and Violet Tulip are muted, more demure colours. They are ideal if you want your kitchen to maintain a quiet and relaxing air. These colours will also translate well when autumn and winter roll back around later this year.
Once you’ve chosen a colour (or two), incorporating it into the room’s design is easy. You don’t have to paint all of your cabinets or replace your countertops. It’s as easy as replacing the cushions on your kitchen chairs or investing in new blinds or curtains.
Accents and accessories also help to add pops of colours to the room. Vases, knife blocks, fruit bowls and lampshades are great accessories that can update the look of your kitchen. Then, when the season is over (or, when you tire of your new colour scheme) you can move these accessories to other rooms.
