How to decorate the interior of a Wenge kitchen: 27 noble motives
Recently, wenge kitchens are very popular. To understand why the color and texture of wenge wood are so in demand in the interior of kitchens is not at all difficult. The point here is not so much in fashion as in the very nature of the material. Dark brown wood with original texture looks solid, expensive, luxurious, but not pretentious, stylish and effective, with a claim to aristocracy and even elitism. On the other hand, wenge is quite simple and strict color. Nevertheless, despite his strict brevity, he always manages to create a feeling of warmth, comfort and coziness in the house.
Kitchen wenge color - exclusive, elegant, elitist
Wenge is an unusually beautiful and rare, and therefore very valuable and expensive breed of tropical wood. In the design of kitchens, it is becoming increasingly popular due to its noble color and texture, as well as increased resistance to damage. It grows wenge in the jungle of West Africa. It is also known under such names as African and Congolese rosewood, rosewood, dikels, mirobot, bokont and avong.
Hard and heavy wenge wood is distinguished by its strength, high resistance to bending and resistance to mechanical damage, is not afraid of fungi and insects. Mature wenge wood has many shades: from golden brown to chocolate and dark coffee with spectacular black veins.
In the interior design, both a natural wenge pattern and an imitation for the color and texture of wenge are used. Real wenge wood is mainly used for finishing elite kitchens. Designers are very fond of working with wenge, as it has excellent decorative properties, and its rich noble dark color with a golden-honey tint and a clear texture pattern allows you to effectively emphasize the exclusivity, elegance and elitism of the kitchen interior. To make the interior of the room a holistic finished image, kitchen furniture manufacturers use material purchased at one place of tree growth and certainly from one batch.
Due to the high cost of wenge wood, in the manufacture of modern kitchens, mostly cheaper types of trees are used as a basis and only wenge veneer is used. However, even this option is not available to many. A budget alternative to expensive natural material - the facades of kitchen sets from MDF, covered with film, one to one imitating the color and texture of wenge.
Kitchen wenge - strict brevity with an African fleur
Kitchen wenge, as a rule, is made in the African style, which is characterized by structural simplicity and colorful ethnic motives. In the interior of the kitchen, decorated in an ethno-style, wenge looks great with textures that mimic the skin of animals. It can be a rug "under a zebra" or a soft corner with a leopard print. Wenge, like other dark wood species, brings a sense of calmness and seriousness to the house. To the degree of "adulthood and solidity" is not off scale, it is desirable to "revive" the interior of the Wenge kitchen with unusual bright accessories: a flashy lamp of a bizarre shape, deliberately rough rustic stools, a ritual mask or a wooden statuette from the banks of Limpopo.
The modern Wenge kitchen is functional and ergonomic furniture, sustained in a laconic minimalist style. Despite its simplicity, sometimes bordering on asceticism, and a strict design, the wenge furniture in the kitchen interior always looks luxurious and stylish. The high-quality furniture, the countertops made of artificial stone and the facade decoration with accent aluminum frames complete the image of the Hungarian kitchen.
What colors to add noble wenge
Excess of dark colors in the interior depresses, so the color of the wenge in the kitchen should not be too much. Best noble wenge is combined with light colors. If you decide to buy a Wengu kitchen set or use the flooring "under the wenge", make the walls of the kitchen white, milky, cream, light beige, sandy, soft yellow, ivory, vanilla or champagne. The furniture of the wenge perfectly co-exists with furniture from oak, maple, ash, birch, beech, and also from such exotic woods as zebrano and olive.
The choice of an additional accent color directly depends on the shade of the wenge. A warm wenge with a burgundy and chocolate tint perfectly matches with yellow, orange, red, pistachio, vanilla and fuchsia. Cold shades of wenge with notes of purple and green harmoniously look with gray, lilac, blue, purple, lavender, raspberry and blackberry. Light shades of wenge perfectly complement the colors of the boudoir palette: the color of champagne, ash, puddle, pale pink, pastel purple and raspberry.
