Nowadays, look at the luxury modern hotel or the finest dining space like Micheline starred restaurant; the dark colored scheme is used overwhelmingly. Why is that? Should it convey something? Does it make the space look more luxurious or elegant? In contrast to your home, why is the bright color scheme being widely used? Is it because the color yields the sense of freshness, airiness that makes the room seems so spacious? You don’t want to darken your entire kitchen, do you? If so, it’s not that difficult to brighten the space, yet remain a dark warm luxurious feeling in your home or kitchen. Let’s take a look at these following ideas.


CHOOSING THE FOCAL AREA FOR YOUR DARK ELEMENT

A portion of dark and light colors can give you different feelings to have a coffee colored warm hominess kitchen. You do not have to dip the entire kitchen in ink, just retain the color scheme in the same tone. Make sure to highlight the area like kitchen countertop with something sculptural & unique and keep its surrounding elaborately humble without any patterns. For example, the countertop slab with a deep brown background and golden parallel veins could bring out a different feeling than from other pure blacks which are commonly found whereas solid dark grey is simply used for cabinets. However, don’t make it too dark for the entire ambience. Choose a light grey color like cement for your floor and wall covering to brighten the entire room. Amazingly, your dreamed kitchen with a good combination of luxury and hominess is not too far to be reached.
