If you follow the interior design world, you’ll have become familiar with a particular color scheme seen all throughout modern homes. The neutral postmodern color scheme has been at the top of the tree for very long. It's been almost 2 decades in fact. Around 15 years ago, the modern-day neutral home interior design came onto the scene, especially in kitchen interior design.

Now, however, we’re seeing a changing of the guard. Contemporary homes are not purely into the neutral spectrum.
White, beige, peach pink, grey, and silver are finally being toppled. And it's not just one particular color that’s changing people’s minds. It's an array of dark palette colors that are making a huge comeback. And the number one place they’re doing this? In the kitchen.
A complex job
Undertaking a remodeling job is very complex and difficult. Nobody should take it lightly, especially in the kitchen. In the kitchen, you have the most amount of plumbing. If something goes wrong, water could furiously leak in your kitchen and if this gets mixed with electricity, it could be a disaster.

Will they give estimates of the job they are given? Will, they put it in writing? What kind of project experience do they have?
When they have satisfied you, then you can begin to choose a new style for your color scheme.
New colors, new style
Remodeling is all about style. It's going far beyond just colors. It's about decor too. For your cabinet style, you must choose a particular design that will suit the darker color scheme.
The certain cabinet will look far better than others in black, brown and blue. For example, veneer wood cabinets are great in warmer tones because the wood is not as intricate in patterns. The more complex your cabinet design is, the more you should go with a lighter color so all the shapes and lines can be properly seen.
Rustic cabinets are great in both warm tones and dark tones. Casual cabinets are great too because they don’t have deep complex patterns. The colonial cabinet is from Southern America, sleek, robust and has maybe two or three steps at the bottom. This too would be great in blue or black.
A slow shift
You might now be wondering, what’s going to happen to the walls and or back-splash? Well, you do need to have an offset color, which will make the darker cabinets visually spring off the walls. However, keeping too many neutrals would defeat the purpose of this change. A better decision would be to have a stone back-splash at the very least. It would look absolutely amazing in a grey and silver mixture, so you have a few pops of lighter shades but they’re restrained by the silver.
Changing the entire kitchen style is a huge task but now is the time to do it. The changing of the guard is happening, so who knows what will come out of it and become the top dog.
