Materials

What usually comes to your mind when you think of tropical locations? Rattan, bamboo, wicker and some kinds of wood, so you should definitely incorporate them into your kitchen decor with furniture or decorations. Mahogany and teak are good wood choices for a tropical kitchen, they usually from tropical locations and they are very durable, so they will help you create a mood.

Tropical Color Palette

Though you may have thought that tropical designs are all about bright colors, contemporary tropical kitchens are white and off-white. You may go for sleek white cabinets, grey or creamy ones, with wooden or stone countertops and backsplashes. Another idea is to go dark – really dark or black stained wooden cabinets. Then you just add bright touches, and the first idea, which is the most trending at the same time, is tropical leaf prints – such wallpaper can be used for a statement wall, ceiling or backsplash. One more trending wallpaper idea is flamingo wallpaper, which is very whimsy and fun. Dot your kitchen with colorful furniture and artworks and voila!
