The Color Choice
If you love color, then going eclectic is both a delight and a challenge for you.Putting together kitchen cabinets, worktops, chinaware and energetic walls in contrasting hues can be a pretty daunting task. Remember that if you are picking more than 4 or 5 colors for your eclectic kitchen, you will need some other element to bind all the conflicting elements together.
Another smart approach is using a colorful backdrop for the kitchen by painting the walls in a bright and unexpected hue, but picking cabinets and decor in a neutral palette.
Smartly Organized – Kitchen
Floating shelves, dependable cabinets and convenient drawers make up a large part of the kitchen and will play a pivotal role in shaping your eclectic culinary space. A smart approach is to keep one of the two elements, the style of the cabinets or their color constant, while playing with the second aspect. This will give the kitchen a curated appeal and a cozier look.
Favorite Style – Your own personalization
So what exactly is eclectic style? It simply is the lack of a defined conventional style, but that does not mean you should not pick one particular theme or look that you love to dominate the setting. In fact, pick a clear style, as the protagonist of the room makes your decor, kitchenware, color and shelving choices a lot easier. Whether you like the industrial chic style with a minimal twist or a cozy farmhouse style with modern aesthetics, by choosing a more specific decorating direction, the task of shaping the eclectic kitchen becomes far less confusing and overwhelming. You can always add a quirky twist or four to this central theme to personalize the kitchen.
