When it comes to kitchen designs, there are enough choices to make your head spin when you start planning about a kitchen remodel. Among the trickier decisions you might face with your new kitchen design is which colors to feature in your kitchen. Many homeowners want to add a splash of color to liven up their kitchen space, but poor color choices will stick with you for years to come. Follow these tips to make color work well within your interior design aesthetic.
Consider where to incorporate colorful elements.
If you’re not ready to commit to colorful walls or cabinet faces but you still want to add bright elements to the kitchen, focus on details. For example, drawer pulls and cabinet hardware can feature a wide range of colors that add some fun without overwhelming the space. If you do feel bold and want to include colorful paints in your design, consider using brighter tones as accents for molding and window trims while keeping the walls in neutral shades.
Choose the right tones.
Before introducing any colors into your kitchen design, take paint samples into your kitchen to get a good sense of how those colors will look in the space. View the samples in different lighting at different times of the day to ensure you’ve selected the right hues for your space. Even if you know that green is your favorite color and you want to showcase green walls in the kitchen, it can take some time to pinpoint just the right shade.
Keep your design aesthetic in mind.
Different design aesthetics favor different color palates. For example, a modern kitchen may showcase colors like navy, gray, and cooler toned neutrals while a rustic country kitchen will be warmed with red, orange, copper, and earth tones. Follow these guidelines to create a beautiful finished look in your space.
