Use the same theme for kitchen as the other rooms in the house
In a Scandinavian styled home, all rooms have the same overall theme. Hence, the kitchen would have the same overall theme as the lounge, bedrooms or dining area. For instance, if light brown, light green or any other soft shade has been used with white in any one room, it would be used in all the other rooms as well. For a Scandinavian kitchen, the color combination needs to be very creative. If you look at the conventional color combination of these kitchens, you would figure out that white has been used as the base color. The other colors that are used to give a good contrast are black and gray. However, some people who are in love with the blue color replace the black or gray shade with a darker shade of blue.
