Designing your perfect kitchen involves making a range of serious decisions regarding the style, colour and design of the kitchen. From the finish options to the layout, there are a number of key considerations to take into account. But one of the design choices that is often overlooked is the use, or role, of texture. So why is texture important to any kitchen, and what are the advantages of texture in kitchen design? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design professionals. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about using texture in kitchen design.
What are the effective options for adding texture to kitchen design?
Texture in any kitchen is about adding surfaces, or design features that are three dimensional. These add visual depth and interest to your space, and texture can even be used as a design feature itself, helping to make certain features stand out. In fact, if you want an impressive, stunning kitchen, texture is necessary. So how can you use it? Well, there are a number of options, including:
- Using natural elements- natural features like wood and stone are naturally textured. Even timber effect, or stone effect will bring texture to your kitchen. Why not use a natural worktop, or even a natural floor to bring texture to any kitchen. From the most contemporary, to traditional or farmhouse kitchens, natural elements can be a great option.
- Use tiles- why not create a tiled splashback or feature wall? Choose tiles with texture, as well as tiles that suit your colour scheme and design choices, and your kitchen will be more visually interesting.
- Detailing- if you have a contemporary kitchen, you might want to leave this one out, as contemporary design is all about the lack of detail. But for any other kitchen, details can make all the difference. Adding details increases contrast in the space, as the details need to be different from the majority. And this contrast creates visual texture, even if this is not physical.
