03 Apr Warmth & Sophistication: Taupe Kitchen Cabinets
Increase the Warmth of Your Kitchen with Taupe Cabinets
If your instincts have been telling you to shift away from an all-white kitchen design to something with a bit more warmth to it like taupe cabinets, we can’t blame you. There is an undeniably inviting nature to the pleasant neutral colors that a colorless kitchen simply can’t match. While the seemingly endless procession of white shaker cabinets is unlikely to slow anytime soon, we are seeing a definite turn in design trends this year.
If you’re glancing around at your pristine alabaster kitchen right now with a sheepish look, don’t despair! One of the ideal ways to get your white kitchen to really work visually is to select finishes and cabinets that complement the existing white decor. Marrying white with other off-white, neutral colors in the surrounding spaces can lighten the mood as well as appreciably help the overall cohesion of color.
Taupe is the Ideal Neutral for Transitioning Elements
The most optimal method for toning down a too-bright white kitchen is approaching it by establishing a positive contrast. There are a variety of ways to go about this; you can focus on furniture, or flooring. You can go about it with molding or accent points.
If you are already working with white walls and furniture, but darker flooring, then neutral cabinets can provide a much-needed bridge between these distinctive elements. Bear in mind, this strategy works independent of the actual style components within the kitchen; you can use neutral bridges whether your kitchen is traditional American or ultra modern and European.
So What is Taupe?
When you take a deep and rich surface of coffee in your mug then add a dab of milk, taupe is born in a glorious instant. It’s a light brown with off white undertones.
There are a great variety of taupe variations, essentially emerging from the more dominant of the colors between brown and white. We have found a tremendous preference for ash taupe; where the brown has gray tones to it.
