How To Style Your Kitchen With Interior Experts, Earl’s Paintworks

How to Style Your Kitchen

Keeping your kitchen “in-style” can be quite a laborious task for many individuals. Kitchen cabinets, countertops, and flooring are the three most important components of a kitchen. You can style your kitchen by choosing complementary colours and accessorising by using highlights and kitchen items. Kitchen cabinet painting can help you stylize your kitchen interior.

Colour Scheme

You begin styling your kitchen by choosing the right colour scheme to be used. There are too many options you can choose from, Although you already know the colour that you want, there are still hundreds of shades, tones, and hues to choose from. When choosing the right colour, you opt for complementing colours.

The architecture of your kitchen interior and the materials used for walls and furniture can also be a factor in choosing the colour of your kitchen. Modern designs gear towards contrasting light and dark colours while traditional farmhouse architecture opts for neutral and natural colours.

Matching the Three

Your cabinets, countertop, and backsplash are the three connecting elements in your kitchen. The backsplash needs to work with the colour of the kitchen cabinets and the countertop. You can opt to go for a contrast; however, contrast is not for everybody but for those who want to make bold statements. Opposite hues attract and make an impact.

You can also opt to choose one colour from the upper cabinets and one colour from the lower cabinets, and the backsplash and the countertop will serve as the area of transition and should exude a third color that will complement both the upper and lower colours.

Kitchen Island and Countertops

Your kitchen island and your countertops do not need to match. Although using the same colour for your island and countertops will create harmony and unity of colours, using different colours for the kitchen island can be a beautiful focal point that will complement your kitchen interior.

Kitchen Flooring

When designing their kitchen, people tend to forget their kitchen flooring. Kitchen flooring is a crucial puzzle piece that getting it right can save you enormous time, money, and pain in the long run. The kitchen is the most used and abused part of the kitchen. Choosing the right kitchen flooring colour depends on either coordinating your flooring by choosing a contrasting colour with your kitchen cabinets and countertop or choosing the colour that matches your cabinets and countertops.

Kitchen Cabinet Style and Colour

There are many kitchen cabinets styles and colours you can choose from. Choosing the right cabinet style and colour can be a taxing job because there are different variables you need to consider before coming up with the right design and colour.

  • Budget: Budget is always the biggest consideration in choosing a cabinet design and colour. Some designs can be expensive depending on their material.
  • Functionality:  The use of the cabinets will also be a consideration in choosing the design and colour. The location where the cabinets will be installed will dictate which colour you should choose.

The colour of your cabinet can either contrast or complement your countertop, or it can unify the colour scheme of your interior.

When deciding which style works best for your kitchen, it is important to consider which colour and design exude your personality and lifestyle. If you are passionate about cooking, you might want to consider the kitchen interior of some prominent chefs and study how they stylize their kitchen. If you still have trouble deciding on how to stylize your kitchen, you can contact Earl’s Paintworks in Calgary to help you decide.

We hired Earl and his crew to paint the baseboards & walls of our basement. He is very good at answering emails and texts. Also is punctual when meeting for quotes and doing the work. I specifically wanted our baseboards lacquered and NOT brush or roller painted. It cost more, but the results speak for themselves. The basement was left clean and the furniture well covered. Great work from this company. Would recommend

Recently Earl painted the exterior of our house. The structure was very challenging and needed an enormous amount of prep work. Earl and his crew showed up every day on time and went full tilt for 4 days to get all the prep and painting done. The paint was all brushed and rolled.They were very professional and it was obvious that they take pride in their work.I did have trouble deciding on the colours and after a couple of stressful months, I followed up with a colour consultant that Earl recommended. It was money well spent and we are very pleased with how it turned out.I would not hesitate to recommend Earl and his crew.
Earl and his team helped me dramatically improve the interior of a recently purchased 1960 Bungalow. They prepped and painted the main level completely (ceiling, walls, windows, door jams, etc.) and did some painting in basement as well. Easy to work with from the start to finish. Great job, on time, and at a reasonable price. I highly recommend Earl’s Paintworks. I will most likely be using their services again soon!

Earl is the best in the business! We hired Earl to paint the exterior of our 106 year-old heritage home that was in disrepair. Our house is a craftsman bungalow that required highly detailed workmanship. Because of the uniqueness of the house, and its heritage value, we were nervous to hire the job out to just anyone. We met with a number of companies and Earl's Paintworks stood tall above the rest. We loved that Earl was an owner/operator and knew after talking to him that he'd take great care with our beloved home. We weren't wrong! Earl and Jeremy were meticulous - sanding every nook and cranny to ensure a perfect finish that would stand the test of time. We wanted a tri-colour scheme to show off the home's craftsmanship, which required a lot of taping, cutting, and intricate work. Our neighbours would stop by to compliment Earl and Jeremy - blown away by the precision and quality of their work. Both my fiancé and I were sad to see them leave. Earl and Jeremy had become fast friends, always making time to stop and visit with us (despite putting in long days of hard labour). Couldn't recommend them enough! If you are looking for a painter, do yourself a favour, and stop here.

We recently hired Earl's Paintworks to repaint the entire interior of a newly-purchased home and could not be more pleased with the quality of the work and exceptional service provided from start to finish. We were on a very tight timeline & Earl (the owner) and Jeremy showed up ready to work 30 minutes after we took possession of the house. They put in long hours to finish the job in only 8.5 days, despite the fact that it was a massive project (3 storey house with over 30 windows/doors to paint around and some 20ft ceilings). The care they took to cover our hardwood floors, carpeting and cabinetry was remarkable - not a drop of paint left anywhere it didn't belong.Earl was truly a pleasure to work with, responded to our questions in a timely & friendly fashion, and provided knowledgeable (and realistic) advice on different finishes and colour options. He even went above and beyond to point out some small repairs that needed to be addressed around the house which was helpful to us as new owners. We had 4 different companies quote on the job and chose Earl's Paintworks based on a gut feeling that Earl was the right choice. Very happy with our decision - so much so that we're hoping to have them back this summer to do the exterior of our house as well.We would recommend Earl's Paintworks to anyone without hesitation. If you're looking for a hardworking, locally-owned company to do an efficient, professional, super high quality job, this is it!

We wanted the interior and doors repainted in our home in preparation for selling. We obtained a couple of quotes from painters. We ended up choosing Earl due to our positive interactions with him.This is a small but very professional company. It was good to work with a smaller company where the person painting your home is the actual owner and therefore, someone who took full responsibility for the work. Earl was very helpful with colour suggestions. He was easy to communicate with via both emails, phone calls and text. Earl was a perfectionist. He finished our 2 level 2000 sq ft home in about 6 full days. He came a few weeks later to do the exterior doors (garage and entry) when the weather was warmer.I would not hesitate to recommend Earl's Paintworks.
