For most people, the idea of designing a monochromatic kitchen may conjure up images of a dingy, dated kitchen in a small trailer home with peeling paint and a broken sink. The thought of a monochromatic kitchen may also be perceived as a bright, clean, modern kitchen filled with stainless steel units. The thought may even spark an image of a monochromatic refrigerator with a white door in an older white refrigerator or a colorful microwave with a turquoise door.
The images that are formed in our mind’s eye while envisioning a monochromatic kitchen are often inaccurate. Still, for this infographic, we will discuss the benefits of designing a monochromatic kitchen.
First, the texture is what holds a monochromatic kitchen together. Varying the textures used in a monochromatic kitchen will help it to stay cohesive and not too boring. A monochromatic kitchen design can be made smooth by varying the textures used.
For instance, a white countertop can be paired with white cabinet doors and white flooring. A white and cream tile floor can be paired with a cream cabinet door and white cabinet trim. All of these different textures can contribute to different results to the overall look of the all-white kitchen.
Secondly, in terms of the actual kitchen design itself, monochromatic kitchens are much easier to clean than other kitchen designs. The surface areas might be small; there’s little or no room to clean around them, making them more susceptible to mess. Using simple tools such as rags and sponge, it is incredibly easy for any homeowner to keep their monochromatic kitchen in tip-top shape.
Monochromatic kitchens are great for saving money. If you live in a relatively large house that you can afford to paint every few years, then a monochromatic paint job is your best option. However, if you are especially handy in the kitchen, then you may want to consider a monochromatic stovetop. In which case, instead of painting your stovetop a different color than the rest of the kitchen, why not just use a shade of that same color for the stove? This allows you to use only one stove for many dishes, cooking, and prep activities without worrying about mixing colors. Instead, you can focus all your attention on preparing food and cleaning up spilled dishes.
In terms of design, one of the newest trends in monochromatic kitchen designs is a sleek, modern look. There are several different looks you can create with monochromatic kitchens. For instance, some homeowners prefer a lighter, stark look that incorporates only the stove, refrigerator, and sink, leaving the walls a neutral color.
On the other hand, more traditional homeowners like a more elaborate monochromatic kitchen with three major appliances, a sink, and countertops. There are also modern kitchens that are strictly black and white, and, of course, there are also black and white kitchens with a dark ceiling and a very bright floor.
Ultimately, if you are remodeling your kitchen or just designing one for your own home, it would help a lot to look into various monochromatic kitchen designs to help make your design easier to implement. You might also want to think about the fact that your cabinets might be easier to clean and maintain when they only have one color. Either way, the most important thing is that you choose a monochromatic design that works well with your existing decor.
