Modern kitchens dazzle with pops of colour
(NC) Trend forecasters are showing that sleek and modern kitchens are expected to gain momentum in home updates for years to come. So whether you're considering a kitchen renovation in the near future, or just wanting to make some minor adjustments to your existing space, these tips are sure to add a pop:
Bold Accessories: An easy switch for any space, consider swapping out or adding some punchy accessories to brighten up your space. A glossy tray in a bold chartreuse or pop of pink doubles as storage and makes a swoon-worthy statement. Hand towels are another accessory that can easily be changed out to incorporate a fun pattern or hue.
Ambient Lighting: Lighting is a relatively inexpensive way to incorporate some drama into your kitchen. If you're working with a monotone space, consider emphasizing the eating area or even an island with multi-coloured lamp shades to add a spark of light. Pair this with a dimmer switch and you'll be able to manipulate how much mood lighting you're looking for.
Countertop Appliances: If you're in the market for a new countertop appliance or are willing to commit to a more permanent colour scheme within your kitchen, consider purchasing items that boast a 'fun' colour. Delta Faucet demonstrates a good example of this. Their newest Fuse line incorporates a splash of colour in a contemporary styled, single handle pull-down faucet. Additional details are available at www.deltafaucet.ca.
Art Prints: Etsy.com is constantly updated with fun, clever, and endearing prints that are often specific to the kitchen. Not only are these prints affordable (within the $10-15 range), they are often printed in standard sizing, making it easy to pair with frames. Consider a monogrammed print which will allow you to infuse a personal touch into your space. Whether you hang one print or create a collage, these small additions can add a bold accent to your kitchen.
Whether you're ready to commit to colour or just looking to add a splash of hue to your space, these tips can guide you through your makeover.
