Creating the perfect kitchen involves creating a practical and functional space, as well as one that is visually well designed too. Design coordination is an important part of this. But what should you consider to coordinate your kitchen design? Well, here at MLS Kitchens, we are Manchester’s leading kitchen design specialists. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about effective and coordinated kitchen design.
How to coordinate your kitchen design effectively
To get the best results from your kitchen design, you should consider the design coordination. This will help ensure that your new kitchen is a stunning addition to your home or property. As such, you will need to consider:
- The colour scheme
- The cabinet and worktop combinations
- The finishings
The colour scheme for your kitchen
For a fully coordinated kitchen it makes sense to start with the colours. Choosing the right colour scheme for your space is a crucial consideration, and this should influence the style of the cabinets as well as the worktops and of course the walls and floor. For large, bright kitchen spaces, darker colours can be used to great effect, while in a smaller kitchen space, choosing lighter colours can help the room feel brighter and larger.
Combining cabinets and worktops effectively
The two central features of your kitchen will be the cabinets and the worksurfaces, and choosing design styles that complement each other is very important. You can consider:
- Using contrasting colours- choosing cabinets and worktop colours that contrast can be very effective. For example, white kitchen cabinets with black or grey worktops can be very effective for adding visual interest to your kitchen.
- Natural tones– if you are adding wood or wood effect kitchen cabinets for a rustic or country style kitchen you should consider using a stone effect worktop to complement the design scheme.
Kitchen finishing considerations
From the taps to the kickboards, the finishing touches you add to your kitchen can be very important for cementing the design style you are aiming to create.
