When redesigning your kitchen, you may think you have everything thought-out, from the countertops and cabinets to the color scheme and flooring, but what about texture? Adding texture may seem like a small detail, but it makes a huge impact on the overall look and feel of your kitchen! Continue reading for four tips for adding texture to your new kitchen.
There are so many natural and manufactured elements to incorporate into your kitchen design, and using a combination of various elements is a great way to add texture. Mix up your choice of wood, stone, metal, or glass elements throughout the room to create visual interest and give your kitchen a “surface lift.” For example, a brick wall brings something different to a kitchen and looks great behind sleek countertops.
Patterns are another great way to provide texture and dimension, even if they are created from similar finish tiles. A tiled backsplash is often the best place to incorporate patterns, as they are smooth and shiny like your countertops, but the lines and depth between the tiles create a textured look. Backsplash tiles also come in any color or pattern you can imagine, so they are a great way to add personality to your kitchen!
Adding a distressed or glazed finish to cabinets is the perfect way to incorporate texture. Distressed cabinets may not be the right option for everyone, as the varying colors and heavy brushstrokes give off a bit of a faux-wood appearance. Even if you don’t love this style, a gentle glaze will add some dimension to your cabinets that will make white cabinetry stand out more.
A traditional kitchen design is all about the details, so be sure to pay close attention to the lighting fixtures, finishes, and hardware throughout your kitchen. Mix and match your details in a way that adds visual interest and texture, but be careful not to go overboard and use finishes that do not work together.
