Let’s Talk Cabinets: How to Match up New Kitchen Cabinets With the Rest of Your Decor
Renovating your old cabinets can be one of the best ways to instantly improve the look of your kitchen, but it can be confusing for the layman to go about making this renovation. With all of the options for cabinetry and the need to match your design aesthetic, it can seem quite easy to make a mistake. If you’re currently wondering how to properly renovate your kitchen cabinets to enhance the overall look of your home, here are some helpful tips you’ll want to consider.
What’s Your Cabinetry Style?
There are a number of cabinet types and details that may instantly appeal, from glass-doored cupboards to more ornamental styles, but certain cabinets will complement the look of your home more effectively. While you may want to experiment with your cupboards and build from there, it’s better to have something a little more streamlined that you can work with so they will adapt to a changing space.
Choose A Neutral Tone
Bright colors can be a great option for small appliances, but when it comes to cabinetry a flashy tone can completely overpower your room and clash with the rest of your home décor. Instead of choosing something bright, stick with shades that are neutral, like gray or white, so they will mesh well with any kitchen additions. Beyond their adaptability, shades like this also have the added benefit of retaining their modern look a little longer.
Consider The Handles
It’s easy to be taken in by a stylish cupboard handle, but high costs can come along with something that’s striking. In addition, they can also clash with the rest of your kitchen if they’re of a completely different style. Instead of going for contrast, consider the kind of pull that will tie in with the rest of your kitchen decor, whether it matches the color of your oven or your countertop tile. This will make for a classic look that still manages to provide cohesion.
There are so many varieties of kitchen cabinetry to choose from that it can be hard to know where to begin with making a choice. When renovating this part of your kitchen, it’s a good idea to be aware of what will work best for your space so that it can retain a customizable and classic look.
