Tip: kitchen in beige tones can lose all their charm with cold lighting. “Delicious” shades of wallpaper and furniture in this case turn into a dirty-white color, so it is important to provide for the installation of lamps with a warm light.
Kitchen set and appliances
Kitchen set in beige color will be appropriate in the interior of almost any style. Facades can be made of the most different material, to be opaque or glossy. Fittings made both “under bronze” and “under copper” and also chrome plated will suit this color.
When choosing material for a kitchen apron and worktops, you can play on nuances or, on the contrary, choose a contrasting color, for example, purple, burgundy, dark blue, lilac and others. The apron must be in harmony not only with the lockers, but also with the wallpaper. Beige combines well with natural textures of stone, marble and wood. Household appliances are best to choose with metal surfaces, but dark brown chocolate or black is also suitable. In the photo you can explore various design options.

The only minus that you need to remember when you design a kitchen in a light beige color, is that it will require frequent cleaning. Therefore, it is important for the walls to choose a material that can withstand regular washing (washable wallpaper, plaster, paint), and the curtains purchased from high-quality wear-resistant fabric.
