One important element with any design project is the development of a "design path" (or "color path"), that creates a coherent, well-planned look for the entire space. Oftentimes this is called a "color board" and all the swatches, finishes and fabrics are laid out together to see the entire room (or entire home) and how all the design elements coordinate and work together.
In kitchen design, this includes wall paint colors, cabinetry finish colors, flooring, countertops, and tile along with appliance, plumbing, and hardware finishes. For the interior design with a room or entire home, it includes furnishings and other surfaces as well. The idea is to create a cohesive look for the entire space.
To create a color path for your home or remodeling project, begin with your neutral colors and then select the other colors for your space. The colors you select may be based on your existing furnishings, a favorite piece of art, or simply colors that resonate to you. In order to create a visually appealing space, let this color page guide your color selections going forward.
Neutral colors (gray, beige, taupe or white) will usually be the background palette with 1-3 other dominant colors layered.
For contemporary or transitional designs, oftentimes a sleek, neutral palette is selected and it's important for all colors to be consistent with this palette. For this soft contemporary kitchen, a neutral palette of gray wood-tone (Weathered "A" finish on Oak) with white-gray paint, stainless and black appliances were selected and then carefully blended throughout the home for a clean, sleek appearance.
Once the "color path" was selected, the cabinetry was specified in the appropriate colors and all of the surfaces, soft goods, plateware, and accent pieces were selected to coordinate.
