Reflective Backsplash Details:

If you are tired of the everyday typical kitchen environment, you can try remodeling your kitchen, incorporating reflective backsplash details. You can achieve this by installing high gloss tiles that reflect light from various angles. You can go for powder blue backsplash and incorporate one or two more complementing colors to create breath-taking scenery in your kitchen.

The lighting design you choose for your kitchen to a large extent, determines how colorful and bright your kitchen would be. The use of warm LED lighting is advised in every instance. Although it is more expensive than the ordinary lighting systems, it consumes less energy which means that in the long run, you will be saving more on electricity bills. Since it emits very little or no heat, there is no fear of your kitchen becoming hot and stuffy when you turn on the light. Make sure to incorporate both task and accent lighting to bring out the beauty of the colorful cabinetry and shelves in your kitchen.

Appreciating White:

It does not have to be just bright and bold colors all through. The sheer beauty of white, combined with elegant kitchen appliances and appropriate lighting can do a lot to transform and brighten your kitchen beyond your imagination. It usually works well with color schemes like turquoise blue, lime green and cream. You can incorporate these bold colors on some of the cabinets and let white accentuate them all. However, keep it at the back of your mind that keeping a white kitchen clean takes more energy and time.
