Kitchens this spring are basking in the cheery glow of radiant yellows. Unlike the blues and yellows of 10 years ago that failed to impress for very long, both soft and strong shades of yellow are now making a statement all of their own.
Want to try something different? Try choosing cabinets with either a honey yellow stain, or painted a vibrant yellow. The use of yellow is by no means limited to the cabinets. You’ll find it used in countertopping, wallpaper, wall color, and fixtures.
Yellow is actually quite versatile. Featured in the following kitchen links, you’ll see it combined with deep reds, light grays, and creams. It also allows for flexibility in your appliances and fixtures. Stainless, black, and white appliances all compliment yellow excellently. The use is also not restricted to one particular theme. It can be used to create a rustic country comfort; a modern contemporary allure, an old-fashioned traditional classic, or to highlight elegant beauty.
The trends are mixed right now. You have a choice between icy blues and whites, earthy browns and caramels, and warm and sunny yellows and oranges. Fortunately for the designer, with so many color palettes to work from, you have a great amount of liberty in your work. These colors are unlike previous trends, in that they can fit into several different time periods and not become dated as quickly. If you are ready to step out of your comfort zone and try something daring, request free estimates from professional contractors today.
