To Choose Kitchen Color

When you choose paint colors for your kitchen, you should pick complementary colors, and try to conceptualize the kitchen as a whole. Why complementary color? It is because it can correspond with any other color in the room, no matter what color your plates are or tiles. You see neutral tones are always safer than bold ones. With how complex it is, kitchens are always the busy room in the house. Yes, pairing cabinet colors with walls and wood floors can be nice but it tends to be look crowded if you would choose the kind a mishmash tones.

Now with neutral tone is more likely you just have to make sure that you would add some accents on it or texture so it won’t be boring.

Pick white, neutral, and natural colors simply because they can make the room space appear bigger. It can also bring positive ambiance. Don’t forget to add decorative accents to the kitchen.

Glass cabinet doors can be an impression added to any kitchen but the addition especially when it’s new is very costly too. Well if you want to avoid too costly reconstruction, then skip the pricey new models. However even if it’s not too pricey  since you will just retrofit recessed panel doors of some few glasses, it would still result a stunning addition in your kitchen.  Use colored glass to conceal what’s inside.

How to do it? This one excerpt from Upgrade your House Magazine:

Use a router when you cut a recess for a glass panel in the frame and it should be straight bit to cut away the lip on the rails and stiles of the door that holds the panel in place. Set the router to the depth of the lip. Clamp the door to the work surface. Clamp guides to the work surface.

Rout out the lip. Remove the panel. Square the corners of the cutout with a chisel.

Install the glass. Measure the cutout and order a piece of tempered glass to fit. Consider the many types of glass. Use glass to install the panel. Reattach the hardware and rehang the door.

The Neat Style For Tiles

The moment that the carpenter went to our house for renovating the sink, I went to Floor Tiles to check some tiles for the kitchen sink. I was thinking to buy a slab but when I checked the price, it was way too high. I opted to look at the tiles/granite on the display. These were the granite I was checking.

I was looking at this at first. It’s black which I really like but I don’t like the messy grand. I don’t know, it is just not neat for me. So I looked around and found this.

It still has some little grand but this is more neat than the other. Thus, I choose this. Now look!

I was looking for border too but the sales force said that it looks better without the border. Oh well, I was checking for this border.

I was about to pay for the border, good thing one of the sales force suggested that I don’t have to put borders since the tiles alone can already make an impression.
