That of going to the kitchen store to choose your kitchen, and choosing only one type of closet door finishing has gone down in history. Now the mix of furniture and finishes is a trend and can be the key to designing a stylish kitchen.
Unless you are lucky enough to be able to design a kitchen that only includes low furniture (to fill the top with light) shelves; full kitchens mix materials and colors in furniture finishes and even countertops. Especially if you have an island kitchen.
The great advantage of this design that combines at least two styles of furniture, is that you do not have to stick to a single style and the final effect tends to be more elegant. The mixture tends to “break” the coldness that is associated with kitchens. Even more so if this mixture includes some part with wood which, in view of the images, is advisable.
To succeed in the design that mixes styles and / or colors we give you some design tips with those who win by mixing.
KEYS TO MIX MATERIALS AND / OR COLORS IN KITCHEN FURNITURE
- The mixtures can be of two colors, or of materials. The change and sophistication will be greater if you mix materials.
- The ideal format to develop this idea is if it has an entire wall of furniture (from top to bottom). Here you can include a different finish on that wall that generates contrast with the work part.
- The simplest is to use two colors or materials between the upper and lower zone. For the upper zone choose the lighter colors.
- Another of the most cutting-edge options is to choose a change of material to “frame” the kitchen. The upper part of the upper furniture and the sides of tall furniture of a different color or material.
- Remember that top furniture can also be designed with two backgrounds. Again, this change of levels lends itself to the change of materials. How about the shallower bottom with glass simulating a cupboard or wood?
- Yes your kitchen is very small and low cost, You always have the option of choosing a melamine countertop with the straight edge of another material. Less is nothing.
