Color of the Year Bathroom or Kitchen Design
Color of the Year related to Bathroom or Kitchen Design
Color is usually a very personal preference for most people. There are certainly specific colors considered trending or in vogue each year. It’s a good idea to know what those colors are as you approach the design of your new kitchen or bath. This year the Pantone color(s) of the year are Rose Quartz and Serenity. You can view the colors at www.pantone.com/color-of-the-year-2016. Benjamin Moore recently announced that their color of the year is Simply White. Color choices should ultimately be based on what strongly appeals to you & your family personally. As designers, we are sometimes asked about what colors are “in” or trending and how to include them into a newly designed or renovated bathroom or kitchen. It is rare that a fashion item or color is used in our designs but frequently a recognized color trend or texture becomes part of our design. Navy blue is trending, just last week I had a customer bring it up. I will be surprised if she doesn’t utilize navy blue in her kitchen design.
A perfect place to start the design process is with a question… “What’s your favorite color?”. The space you live in and come home to every day should be beautiful to you, soothing or a place of solitude to you, not an imagined set of people looking at your home in the pages of a magazine. Your designer should work with the colors that appeal to you and combine them with neutral & complementing textures & colors to create your beautiful interior! If green resonates with you, is important to you, then you need to let your bathroom or kitchen designer know so it finds a place in your new bath or kitchen design!
Among cabinet manufacturers such as Dura Supreme, Medallion and Jay Rambo Cabinetry all offer a paint match process, which makes it very easy to utilize your favorite color directly in the new bathroom or kitchen cabinetry. For example Sherwin Williams has thousands of paint colors which Dura Supreme is able to use for your cabinetry. It could be all the cabinetry or simply a single accent piece. Think of those classic glass doors on either side of the range hood why do they have to be glass? Why could they not be garnet red cabinets in an otherwise light shade of gray kitchen?
This Dura Supreme kitchen was designed by Signature Kitchens Additions & Baths. Color does not have to be paint and it does not have to involve the cabinetry. The lead designer Ellyn Guttridge utilized painted glass to illustrate the point in this Kosher Kitchen Design. The owner by the way was a textile designer from New York. She more than most understood color.
Lime Green may not be your cup of tea. That is not the point. It is a dramatic illustration that you simply do not have to use the stock color chips of the cabinet manufacturer, you can use almost any color you like.
This Cappuccino finish on a cherry mission door by Medallion was used in this Potomac Md kitchen remodel is a combination of gray, brown and a bit of red because there is a hint of purple in the outcome. It is very striking.
If you simply need a specific shade of white that works best with the decor & lighting in your home and matches the counter top or in the case below the cobalt blue country tile from a trip to France, you can do that too! Your designer can guide you through the choices and help bring your entire color scheme flooring, cabinetry, counter top, wall paint, back splash, etc. together perfectly.
