Geneva Sauvage. Kitchen Design. September 16th , 2017.
Think of Scandinavian style and the first thing that comes to mind is the color white. As we alluded to earlier the harsh winters that shaped the style dictated this color choice as homeowners wanted an interior that was airy cheerful and moved away from the chill and gloom outside. White is the obvious choice as it maximizes the available natural light while keeping the visual fragmentation to a minimum. Since white is already a popular hue when it comes to kitchen design most of us will have little hassle in switching styles.
Corner kitchen cabinets are big hit for the obvious reason and you can extend the same logic to your kitchen island as well. For long the corners of the island were left forgotten wasting precious storage and display space. If open shelving is not your thing (not everyone has time to keep their kitchen flawless and organized) then opt for addition shelving that simply slides in when not needed. This also frees up valuable space at the heart of the island for your kitchen appliances. In a small kitchen with a tiny island this minor adjustment can make a huge difference.
While it is easy to add pops of yellow red or green to a kitchen in white and gray colorful accents definitely seem like a thing of the past. Instead of color think of other ways in which you can create contrast without altering the overall appeal of the lovely kitchen draped in neutral hues. Wood is undoubtedly a fine choice as it is both hip and brings a hint of natural effervescence to a contemporary setting dominated by man-made materials. Wooden cabinets and breakfast bars seem to be the popular option here followed by bar stools and floating shelves.
It is generally the ‘summer colors’ that agree with this style but stronger hues also seem at home when used with restraint. Remember that whether it is pattern or color moderation is a mantra that you need to stick to when it comes to the classic Scandinavian look. Cabinets in gentle green or light aqua along with matching chairs in the adjacent dining space take the appeal to a whole new level!
