The kitchen is said to be the heart of the household where meals as well as memories are made. Home makers spend most of their daily time in the kitchen, preparing scrumptious meals for the family. So a kitchen should reflect such an ambiance which reflects a cozy mood and has an appetizing feel to it. Colors play a vital role in creating moods and enhancing appetite. When used correctly, they can make any space as welcoming as possible. Certain colors create certain moods which you can use according to your need. We will help you here with some ideas on how to create your perfect kitchen.
It depends on how small or large is your kitchen. If it’s an open kitchen attached to living room or if it’s a separate room. It’s an important factor to consider while using a color palette. If you have a small space, opt for paler hues for walls, countertops and cabinets e.g. shades of cream, bone and white help a tiny kitchen look brighter by reflecting more light. For large spaces, you can use a bold color as an accent wall to create a look of excitement e.g. one wall with a shade of red paint will help enhance the appetite as well, for red color is mostly related with food and hunger.
Neutrals are always a safe bet if you are designing your kitchen. Instead of committing to a single color scheme, a neutral color acts as a canvas for your imagination. Neutrals are timeless, but some combinations look especially fresh e.g. warm grays and whites, as all colors look gorgeous when accented with this type of palette. It’s also a sleek and modern combination and works perfectly with ever-popular stainless steel appliances.
Choosing the color schemes favored by designers and majority of homeowners is a safe bet if you are unsure about your preferences.
Since a kitchen tends to be one of the busiest places in a home, choosing light and airy colors will help calm down the space and will act as a canvas to easily add pops of color here and there.
Warm tones like reds and oranges act as hunger stimulants and are mostly used in restaurants and cafes to brighten up the appetite. But too much of these bold colors can overpower the room, so it’s safer to use them as accent walls, or on cabinet doors with neutral countertops. They can also be used in tints or as accessories in a neutral colored kitchen.
Using earthy tones like greens and wooden accents give a soothing and organic vibe to your kitchen. If you have white cabinets and countertops, apple green and mint are a wise option that can add more character to your kitchen.
If we talk about blue, navy blues are showing up more and more in the kitchens as cabinets and islands. Being a striking color, it look sophisticated when paired with white and stainless steel appliances and gives a vintage charm when paired with ivory accents.
