I’m 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’t even let you know what number of occasions I’ve gone to my IKEA purchasing cart on-line and tried to proceed with the acquisition, however I haven’t been capable of make myself do this but.
I’m nonetheless 100% certain that I’ll use IKEA cupboards. That’s not the problem. The problem is the color and style. I had selected the Veddinge white doorways and drawer fronts, which is are simply plain white slab fronts.
After which my plan was so as to add trim to the doorways and drawer fronts, after which paint them. However the extra I take into consideration that, the extra I believe that I don’t need to buy one thing that must be trimmed and painted. And I’m 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’d wish to buy some that don’t want any extras — no further trim added, and no portray. I’d wish to unbox them, put them collectively, set up them, and be completed.
Plus, I’ve tried to assume by the cupboard colour choices (I’m restricted due to the wallpaper within the studio), and I truthfully can’t consider something that appeals to me. I don’t desire a heat colour. Our dwelling gymnasium closet space has taught me that I favor my heat colours in smaller doses, so an enormous room crammed with pink or coral cupboards can be an excessive amount of.
If I had my coronary heart set on a really particular colour, I’d in all probability be extra motivated to buy the Veddinge white doorways and drawer fronts and paint them. However I don’t. At this very second, I’ve completely no thought what colour I’d need these cupboards.
So I’ve just about resolved myself to buying one thing that I can use as is proper out of the field. However right here’s the place I run into points. I’ve gone over the entire colours which might be obtainable in all probability a minimal of fifty occasions now, and I can’t appear decide. Most of their colours are impartial — black, grey, gray-green. All of these are a no from me.
They do have one known as Havstorp turquoise, and I believe it might really go very nicely with the wallpaper.
However have you learnt what I’d name that colour? Teal. (To me, turquoise is a brighter and clearer colour.) So sure, I’m pretty sure that Havstorp turquoise would go nice within the studio with the wallpaper. However I’m not sure that it might play properly with the rooms subsequent to the studio, and the studio cupboards might be seen from these rooms.
My kitchen cupboards are already painted a lighter, brighter, bluer teal…
And subsequent to the kitchen, my pantry cupboards are painted a darker, bluer teal…
So if I selected the Havstorp turquoise, that signifies that the very subsequent room over would have darker, grayer, and greener teal cupboards…
And all three of these cupboard colours can be seen when standing within the kitchen, a part of the music room, or the breakfast room. I don’t assume that might work in any respect. The studio cupboards would look simply off sufficient to appear to be an afterthought in the entire home scheme.
In order that brings me again to white. I’m not a white cupboard type of particular person, however I’m not fully against them, both. I’ve seen so many kitchens, studios, dwelling places of work, and so forth., which have white cupboards that look very nice, vibrant, and clear. So I’m undoubtedly open to it.
However what I’m additionally open to is utilizing a mix of wooden and white. I really like this look…
I simply can’t determine if that’s an excessive amount of of a kitchen look, or if it might work in a studio as nicely. After which I’ve the problem of the wallpaper. So I attempted to do some mock up of the image above with my wallpaper added, and that flooring reduce off in order that it wouldn’t be a distraction.
I actually assume I would love that. However fairly truthfully, at this very second, I don’t belief my judgment. I’m engaged on the house gymnasium, which has precipitated me frustration during the last couple of days (to the purpose I sat within the flooring and cried on Monday evening…ha!), so I actually don’t belief my judgment proper now.
I’m fully open to enter on this. I actually do need to get the cupboards ordered this weekend, however I additionally don’t need to decide that I’m going to remorse. And I don’t need my studio wanting like a kitchen, both. So what say you?
