Monochromatic Kitchen: Is It Worth Considering?



If you’re planning a kitchen remodel but haven’t picked a color palette yet, consider tossing a monochromatic color scheme into the hat. It may not be as trendy or as flashy, but it may be the one that your kitchen needs. In today’s post, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Aiken takes a look at why a monochromatic kitchen is worth considering.

The Appeal of Monochromatic Kitchens

With a color palette composed of variations of one color, the biggest draw of a monochromatic kitchen is its sense of harmony and unity. There’s no need for secondary and tertiary colors to complement the main color — instead, variations in shade and texture are used to add depth. A monochromatic scheme implies visual uniformity that’s pleasing to the human eye that can offset asymmetry and create a balanced look.

A monochromatic color scheme also has practical applications. With only one base color to consider, it makes the design process simpler while allowing greater flexibility for customization, as well as room for future changes. You can choose to be as minimalist or as ornate as you need without worrying about the results becoming cluttered. The monochromatic look can be carried over to other parts of the house if the kitchen is part of a full home remodel.

How to Achieve the Monochromatic Look

The first thing you need to do is decide on the base color. Most people would pick white or neutral colors like beige. While they are not bad choices, other colors may be more suitable — green can bring an earthy look, blue a nautical theme, yellow a cheerful feel.

Next, play around with different tones and shades of that color. Subtle changes can be used across a group of features, like on cabinetry. Dramatic differences can be used to create depth between areas. An example of a common visual trick is to pick flooring that’s darker than the cabinet doors and the countertop.

You don’t have to be a design expert to nail a monochromatic look, or any look that you want, for that matter. An experienced design-build remodeler can help you through the design process, with the tools and expertise that can help you visualize your project. Ultimately, your kitchen renovation project will be based on your style and taste.
