5 Ways to Make a Personal Statement in the Kitchen
With so much talk about the functionality and design principles that make up modern kitchens, it can be easy to forget that at the end of the day, they’re the heart of the home.
Kitchens bring families and friends together, so it’s only right that they reflect your own character in that of your kitchen.
Looking to inject some personality into your space? Here are our favourite 5 ways to give your kitchen a personal touch.
1. Mix and match finishes
We empower our clients to use different colours and contrasting materials within their kitchen designs, and it’s a choice that really sets their designs apart.
If you love wooden textures, consider a take on traditional timber and mix a deeper redwood with matte black for a more sophisticated palette.
Or if you like to make a statement, consider using different metallics for your statement lighting and door hardware to tell your own story.
2. Don’t be afraid of colour
Colour and kitchens often seem to be words that don’t go together – but trust us when we say that a splash of colour is the perfect way to let your kitchen do the talking.
Whether it’s putting the ‘splash’ in splashback with bright feature tiles or making a bold choice with your cabinetry, clever use of colour is an easy way to create a space you’ll love to spend time in. Apollo Kitchens’ award winning kitchen designers can help you select colours that are perfect for your home.
3. Go retro
Especially if you have any family heirlooms or antiques – we recommend making the old new again, and incorporating elements as a throwback to your heritage or favourite design period.
Whether it’s an antique churner to proudly place on display, or even a special element from your outgoing kitchen, making a nod to vintage decor is a surefire way to give your kitchen character.
4. Flash your green thumb
Literally add life into your kitchen with the addition of some small plants or herbs. Not only are they a pop of colour and freshness, but, in the case of herbs, they’re a welcome practical inclusion.
5. Ditch paint in favour of wallpaper
Wallpaper in the kitchen is coming back in a big way. Choose from an endless array of patterns, colours and styles – you’ll be sure to find one that matches your personal style.
As long as it’s well maintained, wallpaper is a durable and relatively low-maintenance option for kitchen decor that you definitely don’t see every day!
