Trending currently on kitchen walls is the use of oversized, large-format letters in interesting fonts and colors. These are often constructed from thin but sturdy metal to ensure that they‘re light enough to hang but still feel substantial and create significant visual impact. Many homeowners opt for letters with meaning to the household, to represent initials or names.
In general, traditional kitchen design styles reflect a period of historical inspiration, and they incorporate a variety of looks including Arts and Crafts, country/rustic and Old World/European. Traditional kitchen designs tend to feature more adornment and decorative flourishes, like cabinets with intricate woodworking or paneling, hardware and accessories inspired by their respective historical periods. In some cases, they may feature distressing or other weathering techniques to inspire a more cozy and inviting design aesthetic. Color palettes for traditional kitchens tend to feature neutral and lighter colors, as well as historic or period colors that contribute to a warm and welcoming feel.
Color plays an important role in decorating the kitchen, especially if you bathe the room in a flattering tone-on-tone palette that gives the impression of spaciousness. For a bold and unexpected design touch, not to mention a departure from play-it-safe white, consider painting an accent wall in a vibrant hue. An attention-grabbing wall adds depth and style, and it will even highlight architectural elements particular to your room.
A peninsula can be a great addition to just about any kitchen design, but it‘s particularly useful in smaller spaces where a freestanding kitchen island isn‘t feasible because it would take up too much floor space. Likewise, some homeowners with kitchens with three connected walls may want to explore taking out one wall to create a more open flow between the kitchen and dining room or kitchen and living room. Doing so can create a great opportunity to add a peninsula in the vacant space.
