Statement-Making Kitchen Designs

Bold kitchen designs can transform boring and outdated spaces, but they can also become overwhelming for daily use. The keys to making a livable statement kitchen are restraint and consideration of the function of eye-catching features. Choose just one or two of the following ideas for outstanding kitchen designs that make a strong but coherent statement.
Bright colors can be too much for an entire wall or floor of a kitchen since the room is used so much. But colorful cabinets make a strong statement without taking over the whole space with their bold appearance. Try a bright color for painted or enameled cabinets and a neutral wall and floor color to bring life into any room. If a full block of bright red or blue cabinets seems like too much still, consider just brightly colored cabinet doors or confining those shades to a section of countertop.
Bridge Style Kitchen Faucet
Faucets are often designed to blend into the rest of the décor rather than to stand out boldly as the kitchen’s centerpiece. The wall-mounted bridge kitchen faucet is an excellent choice for making it more visible and treating it as a statement piece. These traditional faucets look artistically retro in modern kitchens and like a natural choice for those who prefer classic styles. Choose from a wide range of bridge-style kitchen faucets to find the perfect wall-mounted design to draw the eye to the sink area. Consider a secondary faucet like a water filler as well to expand the family’s options for using the space.
Colorful, artistic, or unique tiles are always a good way to make a statement. Add a backsplash to keep it refined, or go all out with a whole floor full of hand-painted designs. Tile continues to evolve today, with foil-backed glass and resin-embedded materials giving homeowners options they’ve never had before.
Pre-Rinse Faucets for Industrial Style
Pre-rinse faucets originated in commercial kitchens and restaurants, but they’re available for home use now. These designs feature high-powered sprayers mounted at the end of an extra-long and flexible reinforced neck. It’s easy to spray down the largest pots, pans, and appliances while using an extra-large or deep sink.
Bold Lighting Choices
Finally, lighting can make or break a kitchen trying to create a specific statement. Chandeliers, hanging pendant lights, and adjustable modern track lights all make a significant impact in the kitchen. Consider the height of the ceilings and what kind of lighting is needed most at the workstations before making any specific choices.
