The kitchen is not usually renewed with the same frequency as the decoration of the living room. If you condition the upholstery and the painting of the walls to the color of the kitchen furniture, you run the risk that, within a few years, you will not be able to update the decoration so that it does not catch up. Another danger is that, once you have the kitchen mounted, you discover a sofa that fascinates you and you are forced to give it up because it does not fit you. To avoid problems in the future (there is nothing worse than making a reform and regret your decisions over time), the most practical is to choose cabinets of a color not marked as white or light wood. So you will have full freedom to choose, change or update the decoration of the room whenever you want. In addition, the space will seem less small. Once you have furnished the living area, the trick to integrate the kitchen into it is to leave a fruit bowl or a kitchen accessory in tune with the color that predominates in the decoration of the living room.
