Deciding on a paint color for your kitchen is an important decision. The kitchen is the center of the home with the most activity. Paint colors affect moods and function, so it is important to choose the one that best suit your family.
Whites: White is as neutral as it gets, which is why it is also the most popular. White paint is timeless and it won’t clash with your kitchen cabinets or accessories. If white is too boring for your taste, you can spice up your kitchen by accentuating with a colorful backsplash, cabinets, counters, etc...
Yellows: If you spend a lot of time in your kitchen, you’ll want to have a happy vibe. Yellow is a popular kitchen color, but depending on which shade of yellow you choose, will give it a different feel. Bright yellow will be nauseating and distracting. A subtle yellow will be a friendly atmosphere. It is also important to know that yellow should be used in moderation, as it has a tendency to increase frustration and anger.
Gray: Gray will give your kitchen a contemporary and modern aesthetic look. Gray is known to increase mental clarity. When combined with white or black, it looks very stylish.
Tuscans: These are soft and refined colors associated with Italy. The palette includes burgundy, olive green, yellow gold, and cream. This will give your kitchen a Tuscan villa or renaissance feel.
Browns: Brown is an earthy color that pairs nicely with woods. But using too much brown will make your kitchen feel dull and lifeless. You can brighten the character of a brown kitchen by using accent pieces to counter the dull, such as white counter tops and neutral but colorful backsplash.
Reds: Reds are known to stimulate an appetite which is why they are a popular choice in restaurants. It is also known to energize and heighten emotions.
Now that you know how colors can affect the life of your kitchen. You can choose appropriately for you and your family’s needs.
