Tropical interior design means a sense of summer every day that will cheer you up and inspire you. Even if you do not have a tropical home, you can easily achieve this style in your usual home and enjoy the summer ambience that it creates. Adding a tropical spirit to your kitchen will make it brighter, more exciting, more fun, and you will be more inspired to cook it (maybe some island food, ha?).
What do you usually think of when you think of tropical places? Rattan, bamboo, wicker, and some types of wood so you should definitely incorporate them into your kitchen decor with furniture or decorations. Mahogany and teak are good choices for a tropical kitchen. They usually come from tropical areas and are very durable so you can set a mood.
Tropical color palette
While you might have thought that tropical designs are all about bright colors, modern tropical kitchens are white and off-white. You can opt for sleek white cabinets, gray or creamy, with wood or stone countertops and backsplashes. Another idea is to go dark – really dark or black-stained wooden cabinets. Then just add bright accents, and the first idea, most trending at the same time, is tropical leaf prints – such wallpaper can be used for a striking wall, ceiling or backsplash. Another trendy wallpaper idea is the flamingo wallpaper which is very moody and fun. Top up your kitchen with colorful furniture and works of art and voila!
Tropical plants here and there easily give your space a strong tropical feel. Wicker and rattan accents give your room a relaxed and really summery flair. Depending on what is tropical to you and what you love, add more accents. Enjoy!
