Bold and beautiful: 9 blue kitchens in Singapore
One kitchen trend we are noticing a lot of in Singapore is how blue the cooking space is becoming.
From navy to cobalt, blue kitchens are popping up like crazy!
We totally understand the appeal though - blue is a classic enough hue that can stand the test of time, but it is also interesting enough so that it appeals to folks who want to go beyond safe neutrals.
If you are looking to inject this colour - which is also Pantone's Colour of the Year, unsurprisingly-into your kitchen, here are some bold and beautiful ways to do so.
1. DEEP IMPRESSIONS
Go with a richer, darker shade of blue and pair that with gilded touches for a seriously luxurious appeal.
We love how the ceiling is also painted the same colour as the cabinets, which allows the entire kitchen to stand out even more against the wood surfaces from the rest of the home.
2. HAPPY GO LUCKY
For something visually lighter and cheerier, consider the cyan shade [pic above].
Conjuring images of pristine waters in the Caribbean, this is one happy hue that will brighten up any space.
It was combined with lots of white to balance this energising colour, while wood accents help to create some warmth.
3. CLASSIC VIBES
If you are looking to keep your kitchen as timeless as possible, throw in other classic elements like a backsplash made of white subway tiles (go with gloss for a more modern look) and sleek, handle-less cabinets.
4. COUNTRY ROAD
While blue pairs brilliantly with white, it also works really well with another neutral-wood.
This kitchen gives off a rustic, country style vibe, thanks to the shaker style cabinet fronts, shabby-chic wood laminates and the adorable penny tile backsplash.
5. SMALL CHANGE, BIG IMPACT
Say you like the colour blue, but don't want to commit to it in such a big way.
Instead of having blue kitchen cabinets, just go with a blue backsplash.
It makes the right amount of visual impact, especially when paired with neutral-hued cabinets like these woody ones here.
6. REFINED ELEGANCE
Here's another subtle approach to consider.
The blue shade in this kitchen features lots of grey undertones, so it feels almost like a neutral.
And they go beautifully with the cement screed wall.
A row of gold pendants take centre stage, lifting the raw appeal to create a very elegant kitchen overall.
7. PASTEL PERFECTION
A pale shade of blue lends a sense of serenity and calm, which is exactly what this kitchen exudes.
The pastel colour was restricted to the bottom half of the cooking space, creating an element of interest as the upper half was given a wash of white.
Bi-fold glass windows that are intended to contain fumes and grease add to the feel of tranquillity in this space.
8. MARVEL AT MARBLE
Up the sophistication of your cooking zone with marble motifs, which were included in the backsplash and island worktop in this open-plan kitchen.
Choose a classic black-and-white scheme for your marble pattern, which will not only pair nicely with the blue but also prevent your space from looking overly busy.
9. HAVE SOME FUN
Want something a little out of the box? Jazz things up with tiles.
The zany black-and-white backsplash and a colourful geometric flooring break up the all-blue kitchen, adding a little more fun to the space.
