Notice the bright red and yellow peppers in this kitchen. With the lettuce, tomatoes and carrots and a few pink flowers in the background, this kitchen seems bright and inviting. However, step back and imagine the produce, flowers and girl out of the picture. You’re left with a kitchen that feels bland and even a bit depressing.
It’s not hard to make a kitchen cheerful and alive. Color and contrast make a space feel special. Unfortunately this kitchen demonstrates little of either characteristic.
The cabinets match the countertop, losing an opportunity to add contrast. The neutral flooring in a light shade is fine but the white tile backsplash has a minimal effect on the look of this kitchen. The only real contrast comes from the black bases to the upper cabinets, which isn’t enough to compensate for all of that brown.
Let’s consider adding a spark to make this kitchen come alive. How about a glass tile backsplash? Take a look at the one in the photo shown below. There are brown and light neutral tiles that link to the other kitchen elements, but then this backsplash adds in yellow and green to make it special.
With the addition of one new element, this kitchen can move from bland to spicy. And the good news is that you don’t have to piece this type of design together. At our showroom you can take a look at a variety of tile combinations to suit your color preferences, taste and style.
Take a chance and update your kitchen. By adding one new element you can make your kitchen capture people’s attention even if you don’t cook.
