Create a Dramatic Look in your Kitchen

How can we create a dramatic look in our kitchens? Set the room you use the most with a statement using bold and theatrical details with moody backdrops of colour like black or blue.

Discover below how to create this exciting dream space with the Handmade Kitchen Company.

The Kitchen Design

You will see light-coloured kitchen design as a popular choice for many years and plastered all over the net, however, the palette has changed and these days we are seeing a move to the dark side with dramatic cabinets that create a sleek and sophisticated look, using blue, black or dark grey.

If you are looking to implement this into your space, layer the different tones across the room it will help create a dramatic feel and if you are wanting a monotone scheme.

Our kitchen design choices range from Classic Shaker to the Traditional Shaker where luxurious features can be added to create the look you are after. We have many other kitchen features that you can add to give a luxe look and feel.

The Worktops

There are certainly many different materials you can choose from for the worktops such as granite, quartz or timber. Contrast different textures in the kitchen with two worktop materials. An island that is designed with a wooden breakfast bar and a pure black granite will become the centrepiece of the kitchen, especially when framing with darker-coloured units.

The Appliances

Choosing sleek black appliances is the best option to add a dramatic look to your kitchen – this allows you to show off the hardest working parts of the functional space that is the most used room in the home.

Invest in high-end kitchen appliances, they will certainly make your design scheme a success. If you have a large budget we recommend choosing Sub-Zero Wolf. We work with many other brands to suit every budget.

The Accessories

Gold, brass and bronze are being used more frequently around the home instead of chrome and stainless steel but having said that they are still as popular as they have always been. Accents of gold add a modern edge to a shaker kitchen and certainly bring a sparkle. If you have opted for a handleless design why not choose a gold tap?
