What Color is your Kitchen?
Does it really matter? Great home kitchens don’t just mean cooking and eating . Kitchens are places where you linger after the cooking and the eating is is done. It’s the place for discussions are made with coffee and a special snack long after the party is over. Kitchen colors should promote feelings of warmth, and not just from the oven. It should make a statement about YOU!
The “traditional color” for kitchens is, of course, white; which make some sense. White means purity and cleanliness; but it can also be “antiseptic” and frankly boring.
Ask any decorator about color. What works in one area of the house doesn’t necessarily translate to the kitchen. That’s because color affects, an even creates a mood: who want to live in a room with and black wall?
Yet black can add contrast and tone, which is why al why many white rooms often have selective black or other colored accents and accessories.
Professional renovators know their colors. What works in one area of the house doesn’t necessarily translate to the kitchen. the basic design rule is “Don’t Use Too Much of It.” Choosing one color element of the kitchen, and then add colors that soften, or accent or contrast that basic color. An all back room would be a dreary place to live and work in, but selected elements of white and black and other complementary colors adds “movement” and interest to a room.
