I am right here as soon as once more speaking about studio cupboards. I do know. You thought the choice was made, proper? You thought I had positioned my order, proper? You thought the plan was set and I used to be transferring ahead, proper?
I can not inform you what number of instances I went to my on-line IKEA buying cart and tried to proceed with the acquisition, however I nonetheless could not do it.
I am nonetheless 100% positive I will be utilizing IKEA cupboards. That is not the issue. The query is color and style. I had selected Veddinge white doorways and drawer fronts, that are simply white slab fronts.
And so my plan was so as to add trim to the doorways and drawer fronts after which paint them. However the extra I give it some thought, the extra I believe I do not need to purchase one thing that wants trimming and portray. And I am actually having doubts in regards to the sturdiness and longevity of portray these doorways and drawers. The extra I give it some thought, the extra I would like to purchase some that do not want any extras – no additional trim and no paint. I wish to unpack them, assemble them, set up them and be achieved with it.
Additionally, I’ve tried to consider the cupboard’s colour choices (I am restricted due to the studio wallpaper), and truthfully, I can not consider something I like. I do not need a sizzling colour. The house gymnasium locker space taught me that I favor my heat colours in smaller doses, so an enormous room stuffed with pink or coral lockers could be an excessive amount of.
If I had a really particular colour, I’d most likely be extra motivated to purchase the white Veddinge doorways and drawer fronts and paint them. However I don’t. At this very second, I’ve completely no thought What colour would I like these cupboards.
So I just about determined to purchase one thing I can use how it’s out of the field. However that is the place I run into issues. I’ve checked out each colour accessible most likely not less than 50 instances now and I can not decide. Most of their colours are impartial – black, gray, grey-green. All these are a no from me.
They’ve one referred to as the turquoise Havstorp, and I believe it could go rather well with the wallpaper.
However have you learnt what I’d name this colour? Teal. (To me, turquoise is a brighter, lighter colour.) So yeah, I am fairly positive Havstorp turquoise would look nice within the studio with the wallpaper. However I am undecided it could mix effectively with the rooms subsequent to the studio, and the studio’s workplaces might be seen from these rooms.
My kitchen cupboards are already painted a lighter, brighter, teal blue…
And off the kitchen, my pantry cupboards are painted a darker teal blue…
So if I select the Havstorp turquoise, meaning the room subsequent door would have darker, grayer, greener cupboards…
And all three cupboard colours could be seen when within the kitchen, a part of the music room, or within the breakfast room. I do not suppose that will work. Studio cupboards would look odd sufficient to really feel like an afterthought in your entire dwelling scheme.
That brings me again to white. I am not a white cupboard sort of particular person, however I am not completely towards them both. I’ve seen so many kitchens, studios, dwelling workplaces, and so on. which have white cupboards that look very nice, shiny and clear. So I am positively open to that.
However I am additionally open to utilizing a mixture of wooden and white. I like this look…
I simply can’t determine if that is very like a kitchen or if it could work in a studio as effectively. After which I’ve the wallpaper situation. So I attempted to make a small mockup of the above picture with my wallpaper added and the ground lower out so it wasn’t distracting.
I actually suppose I’d love this. However truthfully, proper now, I do not belief my judgment. I have been figuring out on the dwelling gymnasium, which has made me pissed off the previous couple of days (to the purpose the place I am sitting on the ground and crying on Monday nights… ha!), so I do not actually belief my judgment proper now.
I am utterly open to opinions on this. I actually need to order the cupboards this weekend, however I additionally do not need to decide I am going to remorse. And I do not need my studio to appear to be a kitchen both. So what you say?
