A Beginner’s Guide to Kitchen Colors
When you’re doing a kitchen remodel you need to think about cabinets, faucets, appliances, and of course, colors. It can be overwhelming to choose a kitchen paint color, which is why we’ve put together a quick guide to the different color choices and what they can bring to your kitchen.
Yellows are so bright and cheery, and they play very nicely with white cabinets. Supposedly, some psychologists think that the color yellow can actually make you hungry. A little bit of yellow can go a long way to brightening a room, making this a great choice for smaller kitchens.
There are so many shades of green, and some are more dramatic than others. Many green shades are great companions to white and wood. A lighter shade of green is more subdued, while brighter greens provide an interesting pop of color. When used sparingly, an emerald green can provide a surprising and interesting effect.
Blue, when given totally free reign, can make a room feel smaller, but when it’s used in conjunction with whites and grays, blue can create a beautiful and interesting kitchen. Light blues are very clean and refreshing, and richer blues show a little more personality. Blue pairs well with white, gray, and wood.
Feel like being bold? Don’t be afraid of red! It’s a stunning color that really catches the eye. If you use it as an accent like a backsplash, it provides the perfect amount of color. When used on a broader scale, it can even generate a feeling of warmth.
Gray doesn’t have to equate to dull. Gray can be a nice departure from an all-white kitchen. It can be used for cabinets or countertops, or even as a backsplash or paint color. It looks crisp and clean when partnered with black or white, and it takes well to pairing with another accent color like blue, red, or yellow.
