4 Dark-Painted Kitchens You'd Love To Have At Home
These spaces prove that cooking corners can be chic, too!
Painting the walls a fresh color is one of the easiest ways to give your kitchen a mini makeover. If you're in the middle of revamping your space, you're probably thinking about going for a neutral or a pastel shade, but have you ever thought about going for a darker hue?
While a lot of homeowners think that black and blue aren't welcoming enough, it can actually give your cooking corner a luxurious feel. Before you rush out to buy gallons of paint, let these spaces convince you to come over to the dark side:
1. Dark doesn't always mean black.
If you want to cop the look but you don't want to go all-out ebony, you can always choose a color like moss green or navy. Make the most of natural light by keeping the windows free of drapes.
2. Mix it with different finishes.
Keep your space from looking flat by combining dark paint with another standout material like wood. Consider going for a deeper wash to make sure the look remains cohesive.
RL Tip: You can also play with texture using similar-colored subway tiles!
3. Go matte.
Contrary to popular belief, dark colors can blur borders and make a room appear bigger. Make the most of this effect and add more depth to the space by painting your walls in a matte finish.
4. Add a splash of color.
If you aren't too keen on making major changes to your space, you can ease yourself into the trend starting with your kitchen cabinets. Balance it out with sheer curtains or Roman shades in an interesting color.
