Remodeling your kitchen in Denver

Your cabinetry doesn’t all have to be the same color, as long as they are complimentary.

Mixing complementary colors

You don’t want to overwhelm our kitchen with too many colors, but you also don’t want to make it dull by matching every countertop and cabinet door. A modern, but rustic, kitchen trend is mixing the colors of your cabinetry. The colors should be complementary, but having the cabinets a different complementary color than the drawers can add dimension and vitality to your kitchen. It can also make it look like it was something you did on a whim one weekend when you had the cabinetry custom designed to fit your kitchen and your color palate.

Light and bright colors are often matched to create the illusion of more space. A brightly colored kitchen will also seem more inviting and invigorating.

Sustainability

For the Colorado home, the country feel is bringing back the old wooden countertop for a more homey feel. Plus, a wooden countertop is much more sustainable than other materials. Sustainability and environmental responsibility are at the forefront of all interior design, from the kitchen to the bath to every other room in the house.

Opening up your kitchen

Any little trick that can be used to make your kitchen feel bigger and more spacious is right on trend. A few big cabinet, as opposed to rows of little cabinets, give the illusion of having more space. Shelves or cabinets with glass doors exposing the back wall can also be effective in making your kitchen feel bigger, rather than rows of cabinets taking up all the space.
