Kitchen Accessories Your kitchen is one of the most high-traffic, high-energy rooms in your house, where family gathers and life happens. You can reflect this vitality by turning your cabinetry into a vibrant design element. Painting your cupboards or island can help define your family’s style; for example, try a favorite shade of green for a cozy cottage look. For a more powerful punch of color, choose a semi- or high-gloss finish or lacquered enamel cabinetry. These glossy sheens reflect natural light and make small spaces appear larger. On the opposite end of the color spectrum, neutrals like Battleship Gray are smart bets for adding subtle contrast to your kitchen. Wood-grain finishes have a similarly warming effect, particularly for toning down common kitchen metallics like nickel and stainless steel. (10) Another way to bring in color is by painting the interior only of glass-fronted cabinetry—turquoise really enlivens white coastal kitchens. When you choose your cabinet color, bypass trends and stick with longtime favorite hues. Also, select wall, ceiling, and floor hues that complement your cabinetry color, rather than overwhelm it. So—what color best reflects your family’s personality? Get more design inspiration from Coastal Living.
