I am always fascinated with kitchens that show the owner’s personal taste. It just shows how the owners are willing to take risk and brave enough to go beyond the usual. They aren’t afraid to be criticized by how they show their personality through their own kitchen design. Needless to say, it is apparent that the current situation is not that perceptive as to how every person goes about with his or her life, in this case kitchen designs. However, that does not mean that we will stop playing with our imagination in order to please all of the people around us.
Let me take these general thoughts to the very many kitchens I have been to. Most of the kitchens I have seen have shown me how modern people are being playful with colors. Only seldom have I encountered kitchens that stuck to the trend. Some kitchens may have been patterned from a current style but modifications done to them have made them more unique. I also have noticed that neutrality is not anymore a statement in the kitchens of today. In fact, most of the kitchens have been painted with bold and even contrasting shades. This just goes to show how many of the people right now are showing off their creativity through their own kitchens. These kitchens seem to make others feel like “being in someone’s masterpiece”, that is the kitchen.
Apart from the risky move of choosing bold colours, most of the kitchen owners right now have been displaying artworks and images in their kitchens. The explanation I have received for such moves is because owners think that since the kitchen is the area that most likely gets crowded, then better display art in it like how a museum shows art and styles for the tourists to appreciate. This is also one way for them to make their kitchens look more attractive.
After seeing all of the recent changes in how people treat kitchen designing right now, I can conclude that kitchens are not anymore just isolated areas in the home for these people. They have treated it to be just like an entertainment rooms where they gather and chat with their visitors. As a result, they do give justice to kitchens by decorating it and expressing their personalities through their kitchen’s designs. Perhaps the kitchens styled with a personal twist will have greater value than the ones just copied from any kitchen design magazine. What I mean by this is that these kitchens will look newer and better, that is dated, than those professionally patterned ones in the future.
