15 Jun Liven Up Your Kitchen With Custom Colors
White, grey and even black are predominant colors in design, but sometimes a splash of color is just what your home needs. If you are hoping to incorporate a bold color into your remodel, consider how much of the color you want and what shades can be used. If you are planning on having a diverse palette, make sure you select complementary colors or include a proportionate amount of white and grey to help breathe life into the space.
Custom Color Cabinets
You do not need to go to a fully custom cabinet company to get the color you want. Companies like Mid Continent Cabinetry offer custom paint programs to help you achieve the perfect shade while sticking to your budget. If you are going to paint cabinets an accent color, there are a few options for achieving the look; the island is a popular choice, but painting just the bottom perimeter cabinets, or using a colored hutch as an accent piece, are great options.

As far as color goes, sometimes it can be found in the unexpected. Warm wood tones or refreshing metal accents can be the just spark your kitchen needs. Adding color refers to more than just paint on the walls; it can also be found in metal light fixtures, a wood hood over your range, or even an appliance that pops with color.
The key to successfully incorporating an accent color into your kitchen is to ensure that the space will still look cohesive with differing elements. Upholstered chairs at your island, or bench seating in your breakfast nook, are perfect places to incorporate a fun pattern without compromising the overall design of the space. Do not forget about throw rugs in higher traffic areas; these will add colorful elements to your palette as well.
