One of the best projects to update your home are kitchen renovations. Perth residents can make a real impact on how their kitchen looks and how practical it is in day to day use. A popular and enduring style that often comes back into vogue is Art Deco, and this is understandable. After all, this style oozes glamour, it perfectly combines round corner and oblique angles, and it’s a wonderful way to add contrast and texture to any room. Let’s take a look at how you can add Art Deco elements to your kitchen.

What is Art Deco?

The Art Deco design movement began in the early 1900s as a rebellion against staid Victorian designs that were still used in many projects. The Art Deco period embraced the modern design elements emerging at the time, and many of the choices seemed to be contradictory. This movement really took off during the depression era, but by this time the extravagant and luxurious elements had been tamed a little.

3 Key Art Deco Design Elements

There are many Art Deco elements that will help you to create a bold, creative and stunning looking kitchen. Let’s take a closer look at three of the most critical design elements below.

  1. A Repeating or Geometric Pattern
An Art Deco design will often include an emphasis on straight lines, squares, stripes, and arches. In short, geometric shapes are important, but they must be mixed together and the need to repeat or build into other layers. This look can be achieved in your kitchen renovation by pairing angles and lines together. Consider using rounded island countertops with arched extractor hood vents. Add accents by mixing different shapes together, such as triangles, rounds, pyramids, rectangles, and arches. The tiled backsplash and/or floor can use similar geometric patterns to provide an interesting focal point for your kitchen design,
  1. Use Contrasting Bold Colours
Art Deco design is bold, so don’t think twice about matching and mixing together seemingly disparate elements. This is equally applicable for contrasting colours as well, the classic being the black and white shapes seen in many Art Deco projects. However, you can get even bolder with colours, and the key is to introduce disparity using elements, such as lighter and darker cabinetry, a variety of metallic accents, retro modern appliances and contrasts in tiles patterns.
  1. Use Different Textures
When you need to create a variety of different contrasts, many fledgling kitchen designers focus on the visual appeal without delving deeper. Using different textures together will add a great deal of contrast to any space so consider using materials, such as coloured velvet, high gloss paint, metal mixed with wood and thick rugs or carpets in the dining area. The add some luxurious touches to finish the Art Deco look, use glass fronted cabinets and strategically place larger mirrors. Any shelving can be used to display fun kitsch collectibles with a kitchen theme.
