4 Tips for Monochromatic Kitchens

Last update: 28 March, 2019

Monochrome kitchens are one of the hottest trends these days. And we’re not surprised; they’re beautiful, dynamic and modern. If you’re thinking about renovating your kitchen and using a monochrome design, you’ve come to the right place for help.

In our post today, we have 4 tips for a visually stunning kitchen. Don’t rush the process. Take your time because slow and steady will get you the result you want.

1. Choose your color wisely

Just as the name suggests, a monochrome kitchen uses decor in one single color. This color will cover your kitchen from corner to corner, so take your time to choose the right one.

A hasty, thoughtless decision will probably result in a kitchen that you’re not too crazy about. You might get sick of the color or simply feel overwhelmed by it. While it’ll ultimately boil down to personal preferences, bright colors usually seem like an attractive option at first. But after time, they look shrill.

Dark colors, such as black or gray, are similar in that effect. While they’re very elegant and sophisticated, they can have an overwhelming or darkening effect. But we’re not saying that bright or dark colors make poor choices. Rather, hasty decisions mean bigger risks of making the wrong choice.

2. Play around with different shades

Just because you use a single color for your kitchen doesn’t mean that you’re limited to a single shade. We recommend choosing a palette that excites you and playing around with the shades.

With different shades, you can create a truly gorgeous setting. For example, if you want a monochromatic gray kitchen, you can use a combination of pearl, metallic and charcoal gray. The result will be a kitchen that has much more variety without breaking the monochrome palette.

You can also try out different shades for your dishware, curtains, tablecloths or tablecloths. It all depends on how far you want to take your monochrome design.

3. Functionality comes first

Before starting on your kitchen decor, you have to remember that functionality has to be the main pillar for every step of the way. Functionality, convenience, and safety have to be a priority in kitchens.

Don’t forget that your kitchen has to be a room where activities like cooking and eating are comfortable.

Sometimes, we focus too much on color and forget about functionality. Though something may be the perfect color, it’ll be useless if we can’t use it.

Take the time you need to choose your kitchen elements. Browse furniture stores and websites. Finding what you want in the right color is possible! It’s just a matter of patience and searching.

4. Factor lighting into your monochrome kitchen

Lighting is always one of the biggest aspects to think about in interior decor. If you have a spacious, well-lit room, you’ll enjoy more lighting possibilities.

On the other hand, if you have a small kitchen, or if your kitchen doesn’t receive a lot of natural light, we recommend avoiding dark colors such as black or dark gray and blue. If you try a white kitchen, you can really create a sense of amplitude and light that’ll help make this room more comfortable.
