Aesthetic Considerations for Designing Your Kitchen

A kitchen isn’t just a room for cooking; it’s also a place where friends and family gather to connect with each other create memories. The way that you decorate your kitchen sets the tone for how new memories are made and how you feel while spending time in this important room. For example, you can approach kitchen aesthetics with high-tech, country, modern, or minimalistic styles to suit your taste and purpose.

In this article, we’re addressing some of the many aesthetic considerations to keep in mind while designing your kitchen. We’ll also highlight the best ways to shop for all your decorative kitchen and bathroom supply needs.

Kitchen Color Schemes

The colors that you choose for your kitchen have a significant impact on your mood and state of mind. Certain color schemes dictate the purpose of the kitchen, while specific colors can motivate eating and creativity when cooking.

Recommended colors to decorate kitchens include white, gray, blue, yellow, and green. Gray is a neutral color that matches other colors well and is more unique than black or white. However, white is an enduring classic for kitchen design that never goes out of style. Neutrals are very versatile and allow you to play around with colors in the accent pieces, appliances, plumbing fixtures, and decorations.

For blue shades, choose light blue colors to create a clean and crisp look on the walls or cabinets. Meanwhile, yellow is a fun color for the kitchen because it livens up and brightens up this festive space, and it’s believed to even make people hungry! Yellow color schemes can also make small kitchens appear larger, and they pair well with gray colors. Mint green and apple green work well for kitchen spaces and can help us feel more creative while experimenting with new foods in the kitchen.

Counter Space Positioning

Another aesthetic consideration to remember is your counter space positioning. If your focus is more on cooking than gathering in the kitchen, you’ll want to allow plenty of space for food prep and kitchen gadgets.

But if you would like your kitchen to be more of a gathering space for the family to spend time in, you may want to install an island dedicated to gathering or raised counter tops. The positioning of the counters can be arranged so that gatherers aren’t in the way of the cook but still feel welcome to sit or stand nearby.

Cabinet Design and Placement

Similarly, your cabinet design and placement matters a lot when you’re trying to decorate an aesthetically pleasing kitchen. Kitchens with a primary focus on cooking should have cabinets placed for easy access and durable enough for constant opening and closing. Aesthetics are often considered after functionality in these kitchens.

But if you want your kitchen to be a social space, aesthetics is even more important. Comfort and hospitality can be worked into the cabinet design and placement so that friends and family members feel encouraged to spend time alongside the cook during meal preparation and clean-up.
