Why You’ll Love a Monochromatic Kitchen



Monochromatic spaces are sleek, clean and elegant. They are ideal for individuals who prefer neutral and classic hues. When you incorporate this style into your next kitchen remodel, you don’t have to worry about your space going out of style. 

Read on to learn more about monochromatic kitchens and get tips on achieving their look.  

Why Go With a Monochromatic Kitchen? 

It’s a common misconception that monochromatic kitchens are boring. People often think these spaces only have one solid color, making them look plain. They do use one color but in different shades and tones for dimension and contrast. 

Unlike many current trends, a monochromatic kitchen is unlikely to appear outdated in just a few years. You don’t have to make drastic changes if you wish to give the room a refresh. All you have to do is switch up the decor or add a few accent pieces. 

How to Achieve Its Look

Mix and Match Color Variations

Begin by choosing the main color of your kitchen and exploring its shades and tones. Use variations of the same color for the counters, cabinetry, backsplash and other elements. The slight difference in tone will prevent your space from looking monotonous. 

Choose Contrasting Wall and Flooring Colors

Using contrasting wall and flooring colors is another way to keep your kitchen from appearing flat. If you have light walls, look for dark-colored flooring material and vice versa. An experienced kitchen renovation contractor can help you select wall and floor colors that complement each other. 

Play With Textures

Your kitchen won’t look boring if you use different textures throughout the room. An easy way to add texture is through metal finishes. In an all-white room, gold, copper and brushed nickel hardware will look great. Glass lighting fixtures are also ideal for monochromatic spaces since they are visually appealing and blend with most colors.
