Therefore, it is important to achieve harmony in the style design of the facades of furniture and wall panels.
According to the comments of stylists, there are several options to help achieve this unity:
Neutral, universal or "invisible" apron
The peculiarity of such a panel in its inconspicuous. The most common options are: a method of applying monochrome in color or as close as possible shades, as well as transparent heat-resistant glass, which performs a protective function, but does not have any color.
The gradient method is a win-win for any interior design. For example, for the kitchen, you can choose such combinations: the upper part is white, the wall panel is gray,and the lower cabinets and table top are several shades of black. Also, the combination of milk, coffee and brown colors will look stylish.

We select a shade
The selection of colors for the wall panel directly depends on the color of the furniture. Therefore, designers of interior decoration recommend initially to determine the color options for the facades, and only then proceed to the apron.
Very often, the final choice depends on the taste, character and even temperament of the person himself. It is possible to trace such regularity that cheerful and restless people often prefer brightness and originality. While calm individuals are more prone to pastel or muted tones.
The choice of the main color is focused on the overall style, type of furniture, its content, compatibility with household appliances. But the wall panel in its colors is tied to the headset.
So, almost any color from the existing palette of colors in the world is suitable for a bright kitchen. White color is also unpretentious in the choice of combinations. Both calm pastel shades (sky blue, lilac, light blue, pale green) and bright flashy tones (red, orange, bright crimson, rich yellow) are suitable for white. White kitchen with a green apron looks beautiful.White color will emphasize tenderness, and green - will give the room a feeling of freshness.
Kitchen in green tones is the personification of inner peace and unlimited energy. It will be interesting to look at the combination of different shades of green. If there is a desire to add brightness, then you can dilute this idyll with bright yellow or saturated purple.
For a beige kitchen, stylists recommend choosing shades of brown, orange or coffee.
Orange, bright yellow, olive and green are suitable for the purple kitchen.
And gray will look beautiful with turquoise, blue, various shades of blue, as well as in combination with red, crimson and hot pink.
For burgundy kitchen suitable apron milk, white, light coffee or gray tones.
Furniture in blue or blue is better to complement the gray, milky, beige or even white wall apron.
Red color provides an opportunity to put into practice all your imagination. After all, it harmoniously looks with white, black, orange, blue, aquamarine and other tones. The combination with pastel shades will make the room more calm and comfortable.But bright colors will add originality and vividness to such an interior.
Kitchen set in black or wenge color should be diluted with light shades. Otherwise the room will be too dark and gloomy.
The monochrome and the use of the same color for the wall panel of the kitchen set cannot be called a rational solution. More interesting and winning options will be a combination of different shades or even colors, as well as the use of the texture method. For example, ceramic tiles of irregular shape will look original - triangular, hexagonal, in the form of rhombuses, etc. To make this type of design more visually attractive, you can fill the gap with colored grout or use decorative screws at the joints of the tiles.
A bright multi-colored apron is ideal for a quietly colored kitchen set. At the same time, color combinations can be both correct and completely unexpected. According to the color combination tables, you can choose different options. So, brown, beige, and milky are perfectly combined with orange.Violet will be interesting to look with bright yellow, green or calm lilac. Turquoise can be complemented with shades of yellow, blue, brown and terracotta. Today, the olive and orange duet are especially popular.
No less important will be the drawing on the wall panel itself. Having carefully studied the tastes and preferences of customers, the conclusion suggests itself that today high interest is given to drawings in the form of a combination of various geometric figures, ornaments in ethnic style, seascapes, still lifes from vegetables and fruits, and also images of flowers (lilac, orange lilies, tulips, sunflowers, poppies).
Wall apron - an important element of the kitchen. When designing it, it is important not to be afraid to turn all your ideas, wishes and fantasies into reality. The kitchen should be not only practical and functional, but also comfortable with a special warm atmosphere.
