When choosing kitchen appliances, many people go for the standards: Black, white, and stainless steel. However, remodeling your kitchen gives you the chance to experiment with lots of new looks, including colorful appliances. Colorful appliances are rising in popularity, but are they really right for the kind of kitchen design you want to have? If you’re considering colorful appliances, here is what you need to know.
Colorful appliances work best when they’re used sparingly.
When you choose a colorful appliance, think of it as a pop of color for your kitchen. Although color can brighten up your space and make your room look interesting and inviting, too much color can be overwhelming. For example, if you opt for a red stove, you shouldn’t pair it with red cabinets, as the color will feel less like a sophisticated design decision and more like a design that came together without a plan. Go for your pop of color, and anchor it with other parts of the décor that are subtle and understated.
If your kitchen is small, bold, dark colors might make it feel smaller.
Colors can influence the way a room feels. If you have a small space, choosing a dark color for your appliances can make the room feel more closed in and confined. For a small space, if you want colorful appliances, choose a light, bright color. On the other hand, if you have a large kitchen, bold colors can be the perfect fit for adding color to your space.
Trends can change quickly, so consider the short and long term.
Colorful appliances are becoming increasingly popular, but consider your long-term design preferences as well as the short-term appearance of your kitchen. If you tend to prefer classic looks and change your mind about trendy designs, you may prefer to add color to your kitchen in other ways.
