Picking a color for your kitchen.
October 14, 2016
It seems like a very easy thing to do, and for some people it probably is. But we're here to help the ones who feel like this is the hardest task. Picking a color for your kitchen can be something that takes a lot of your time and attention. Making the perfect combination between the color of the walls, the cabinets and the backsplash is the goal we're all looking for.
According to HGTV, when it comes to kitchens, white, gray, blue, red, yellow, and green really shine. Each of these shades can do something different for the rrom, but they all help create a warm and welcoming space.
Warmer colors such as red are believed to stimulate the appetite and are an excellent option for kitchens. Red is incredibly versatile and there are multiple shades that would really pop in a kitchen, either on the cabinets or the walls. -- Here in Contempo Spazio, for example, we have our own line of red cabinets (it's called Rossetto), and we can tell you it is a bold and great option for your kitchen!
Most people start their days in their kitchens, and white can really energize a room. It feels fresh and clean, and an all-white kitchen will really wake you upthe minute you step in it. You can also have more fun with your countertops and backsplash in an all-white kitchen and choose brighter colors or designs for those. This is one of our favorite options.
Gray is a neutral that's been taking center stage lately in many homes. It often gets categorized as being too cold, but with the right shade, it can work wonders in a kitchen. Best of all, it pairs beautifully with a wide array of other colors and is the perfect base to build upon a kitchen. It also works well as a countertop or cabinet color.
Blue is another color that works well in kitchens. When lighter shades of blue are used, they can create a crisp, clean look and are recommended for walls, cabinets, or even the ceiling. Blue is an invigorating color and works best when used sparingly; otherwise it can overpower a room. Dark blues also work well in kitchens, but it's important to accent the rest of the room with hints of white, gray or other neutral tones to keep it from feeling too intense and dark.
On the other hand, yellow can instantly brighten up a room. Also believed to make people hungry yellow has a shooting quality and will instantly make people feel calm and happy in your kitchen. A good option for small spaces, yellow can make rooms feel bigger and brighter, and it pairs well with white and gray accents.
Green is also a smart shade to use in the kitchen. There are many different shades to choose from including mint and apple green, which pair nicely with white and wood accents. If you're willing to be more adventurous, try emerald green, Pantone's Color of the Year for 2013. A striking shade, it can add a jolt of energy to the kitchen when used for an accent wall, cabinets, an island or even the floor.
There are so many options, what you would be doing is addapting the color of the kitchen to your personality and add any details you want to add. If you're thinking more of an elaborated backsplash and a different color for your kitchen cabinets, we recommend you to go for white walls, this will not disappoint you and will always be in style.
