Easily adjust the overall color tone of your space with finishing touches. Wanting a traditional style with a warm tone? Then including warmer toned back splashes and paints are easy to do.

On the other hand, using cooler toned touches would give a more modern and open feel to the space. Below are some tips and tricks to accomplish a light feel with warm toned items.

One sure fire way to counteract the warm tone is to introduce cooler tones wherever possible. Depending on your budget, opt for a white toned counter top. Opting for a pure white would be too contrasting and wouldn’t feel cohesive. Using a very light cream will help tie in the cabinets and keep the space open and airy with the lightness.

Another area that can be easily changed is the wall color. Swap out the wall paint for cooler neutral, like a warm white or very light gray. One last ideas would be with the hardware. Go for a silver toned pull and knob rather than gold or brass.
