Some homeowners simply imitate their neighbor’s kitchen decor after visiting their house. Some borrow ideas they saw from a reality TV show featuring interior designers who remodel Salt Lake City kitchen cabinets.
Others, meanwhile, are willing to go through the process of figuring out what style fits their personality and how they will apply it to their kitchen cabinets. Unfortunately, most of these people do not know how to figure out what their personal style is.
But because the internet is a hub for people with interesting ideas who are more than willing to share them, here are various ways you can figure out what style fits your personality the most.
Are you classy?
The materials you use for your kitchen cabinets will speak volumes about your personality. So, if you think you are the classy kind, you should check out black marble countertops, stainless steel stoves and appliances, and white raised wood panels.
This kind of kitchen decor is often chosen by people who like simple, elegant and classy kinds of design for their homes. If you go around their houses, you will see that they often minimize the use of colors in the whole interiors. If you’re the minimalist and classy type of homeowner, this might be your cup of tea.
Do you want to feel cozy?
If you’re a homebody kind of person and you like spending more time at home than out in the club or the mall, you might want to try out red bricks and natural wood for your kitchen.
These materials have that Martha Stewart appeal that you might also have. And if that is the case, look for materials with earthy colors for your kitchen cabinets and other items.
Do you like modern styles?
If you happen to like granite and concrete slabs on your kitchen, then you might be the type of person looking for a modern touch at home.
Dark wood, granite countertops and slate floors will complete your kitchen’s modern look, but some experts say that you should add some warm wood cabinets to this style so as not to look too cold with the end result.
Do you love to mix and match?
Perhaps the choices above are not to your liking. You might want to mix some of them up because you do like modern styles but not too modern. Or you like the Martha Stewart look but you do not want your kitchen to look too much like all you do is bake.
If that is the way you feel then, perhaps you can mix those different styles to come up with your own design. Whatever your style is, it is important that you come up with a design that you will be happy and comfortable with, not just because this style is what is trending right now.
Your kitchen, like the rest of your house, should represent who you are. Come up with a design that can trigger your emotions and make you say, “Yes, this is the kind of kitchen I see myself cooking for several years to come.” That is when you have figured out that you have the kitchen design that is just right for you.
