The kitchen is often the focal point of the home, and spending extra time crafting the perfect design is well worth the effort. Most people like to create a theme with their kitchen cabinet layout, including specific choices on hardware and finish. The newest trend on the block is “bejeweled kitchens” that mimic the glamour of a regal home without the cost. Here we take a look at the ways you can transform your kitchen into a jewel of a room by updating your cabinets and hardware.
Paint and Accent Pieces
Gemstone colors are bright, but you can use them sparingly if you’d still like to present a traditional kitchen look. This trend can be adapted for any personal taste. The easiest step: paint the kitchen cabinets! Whether you prefer a vibrant green jade or a deep smoky quartz, painting your kitchen cabinets is the first step to a bejeweled kitchen. Go full force and paint the cabinets in full, or consider using a jewel tone as a framing color for just a splash.
Adding elegant accents such as brass or chrome cabinet door pulls and lighting fixtures will add to the gemstone coloring. Unusual lights or faucets will add to the older-era feel.
Counters and Backsplashes
Sleek and colorful granite countertops provide a way to inject color into your kitchen. Depending on the color desired you may have to search but there is a good selection of blue, red, green, and other combinations to discover. Alternately, a backsplash behind the counter can offer some shine. Typically silver or gold, backsplashes can add a bit of glamour.
See the examples below to discover new ideas! While bejeweled kitchens may be on-trend, choosing just a few jewel tones here and there is a great way to create a new subtle look.
