Keeping Up With Kitchen Decorating Trends
A Simple Way To Keep Up With Kitchen Decorating Trends
Each year interior decorating trends change, furniture styles change, appliance styles and even appliance colors change. The changes stem from the colors and styles that come out of the fashion industry which introduces new trends each season. Although interior decorating trends change a little more slowly than fashion, you want to be sure your decorating doesn’t become dated before it’s time. So how do you stay up to date and keep your style fresh and updated? There is an easy, fun and inexpensive way to keep your kitchen up to date with kitchen decorating trends and keep your baths looking fresh and updated using color.
Decorating Trends in Your Kitchen and Bath
First and foremost, it starts by making selections for the “bones” of a kitchen and bath such as cabinetry, fixtures, countertops and finishes that provide a neutral backdrop. White kitchens continue to be a very popular choice in kitchens and baths and for good reason. They are bright and cheery and provide a backdrop for almost any decorating style and color. Grey and more recently, Greyge, a sophisticated grey beige color mix are also very popular of late for cabinetry, counters and wall color. You can’t go wrong with a timeless style and neutral color for the backdrop for changing kitchen decorating trends.
Next, add color using accents such as cooking or decorative accessories in the kitchen and the bath. Add a bowl on the counter in a fresh color for fruit or add some fresh, new towels to your bath that reflect the latest color trend. Changing out the accessories gives you an easy and inexpensive way to freshen up the look using the latest colors for the season making it easy to keep up with kitchen decorating trends in your kitchen and bath decorating too.
This Year’s Pantone Color of the Year
Each year, Pantone selects a ‘Color of the Year’. In 2017, the color is called “greenery”. It is a yellow green, spring like shade that is meant to signify the growing desire we have to connect with nature. It represents refreshing, renewing and a replenishing. We have included a picture of the color in the article. Freshening up your kitchen space using this year’s color is easy. Simply add a spring green plant, a floral arrangement that uses the flower “the bells of Ireland”, by adding a bowl of Anjou pears to your space or by switching out some of your accessories such as placemats and napkins.
In the bath, change out your towels or add contrasting guest towels in the new color. This works well if your bath is blue or violet as these colors are complimentary to yellow green but if your bathroom is a warmer color, you can achieve the refreshed look by adding a green plant, even a good artificial one will bring the color into the room. Keep larger visual areas such as shower curtains neutral so the small pops of color really stand out in the room. Put the accent color in 3-5 places in the room in keeping with good design principles: Odd numbers. Less is more and above all, have fun.
