The photo shows a Wenge kitchen in combination with a bright green-yellow apron that successfully shades a dark furniture set.
Naturally, when choosing a color combination, several simple rules should be observed.
Dark furniture visually reduces space. Therefore, the facades of the kitchen set should be made of lighter varieties of this tree. And it is desirable only the lower part of the kit, hanging cabinets it is better to choose more bright colors.
Some asceticism of dark wood will significantly revitalize the presence of contrasting decorative details. And it should be noted that the general background of the room should be bright and neutral.
For example, three walls and the floor are pastel-colored, the apron is bluish or pistachio, and the facade of the headset is chocolate. Decorative elements - lamps, ceramics - can be in this case burgundy, dark red or terracotta.
Kitchen wenge color will look excessively pretentious and a little "defiantly lonely", if in this tone only the headset will be executed. If it is supplemented with the same window frames, doorways and floor covering, then the room immediately becomes much more comfortable.
Not a single Hungarian
It is clear that not everyone can afford to buy a furniture set of natural wood. But do not limit yourself to desires - modern technology with similar tasks can cope with ease.
Case furniture is most often made of chipboard, and the facades of MDF, covered with a PVC film you liked the shade of Congolese rosewood.
The working surface made of artificial stone, matched to the tone, will turn the usual living room into the chef's studio, where only exquisite culinary masterpieces are created.
The flooring can also be chosen with wenge colors. But it should be remembered that the facades should be either friendly woody tones (beech, ash, alder), or rather bright, but not aggressive.
For example, the floor is dark wenge, the facades of cabinets are vanilla-turquoise, the walls and ceiling are of neutral light tone, and the working surfaces and table top of the dining table are of chocolate tone.
Then the room will not be "clamped", especially when using contrast textures - matte "warm" horizontal surfaces and glossy "cold" vertical.
Also, remember the correct selection of the texture of the basic background surfaces. Wallpapers with any color pattern in this situation are strictly contraindicated.
Even if you really want. Good looking walls with a glossy surface of pastel colors - for a new wave and high-tech.
For nouveau, a matt, monophonic surface, worked with figured plaster, with a distinct pattern, stylized for the bends of plants, is suitable.
The African style will perfectly shade the walls, imitating wild sandstone or light unbaked clay.
By the way, in the latter case, you can even allow children to put their hands, literally, to remaking the kitchen: fingerprints of children's hands, monochrome drawings imitating the rock paintings of primitive people, will turn your kitchen into a unique work of design art.
The only and indispensable condition when working with this color - measure seven times, and then cut.
Wenge - a solid self-sufficient color, which requires a respectful attitude. Therefore, you should carefully approach the choice of partners and antagonists tones, so that your kitchen is truly a stylish space.
In whatever style you decide to make your kitchen - the wenge color will make it the most natural habitat that you do not want to leave longer.
