It’s very easy to pick a color scheme when you first start redecorating the kitchen. But if you’re not sure what color would look best in the kitchen, take a look at the examples and decide that’s ok because you’ll surely be wrong. Each color has its own characteristics but if you want you just have a look at the examples and decide which one is right for you.
Usually, when deciding on a color, the first thing that comes in your mind is white. It’s a very common color, very neutral and easy to combine with almost any other color. However, if you want something contrasting, well-balanced and even seasonally-sunny, try dark blue or purple.
Sometimes it’s better to choose a bold and vibrant color if you don’t want it to be boring and monotonous. Yellow is a very nice choice because it’s sunny and bright but it’s also warm and a bit uncomfortable.
Sometimes it’s better to go with a bold and vibrant color that helps create a particular mood rather than a soothing color that doesn’t help you relax. If you want peace and serenity, yellow is a great color for that.
Usually colors are perceived differently in the interior décor of a room. Neutral colors, such as the black and white shades, tend to have a cold feel and they’re not particularly inviting. So if you want to make a space feel welcoming and comfortable, you should consider cool shades such as blue or green.
Another way to use colors to create a warm and inviting atmosphere is by using them in combinations and with certain other colors. For example, orange is a very cheerful color and it can be mixed with red and yellow. If you’re using warm colors, then cool shades would be more suitable.
The coldness of the colors allows the use of all sorts of bright and bold colors which would otherwise disturb the interior décor of the room. You can create a beautiful décor by combining orange, green, blue and yellow.
It’s also important to know how to use three colors in a room. Collages are nice but they’re usually more suitable for the living room or for smaller amounts of furniture than for the kitchen. It’s also suggested to use different shades of the same color for symmetry.
Another room-related detail is the color of the walls. It doesn’t really matter what you use for walls in the living room or the bedroom. What matters is the atmosphere that you create using the colors. If you want to create a romantic atmosphere, maybe a more mild yellow or a shade of brown would be a better choice.
If you’re having trouble deciding on a favorite color for the wall, perhaps the trick would be to associate it with the other colors in the room. For example, if the walls are green, then the bar area should feature the same shade. It’s also a way of maintaining balance in the décor.
Let’s finish with the ceiling, a surface that can easily become a focal point for the rooms that you decorate it. Another way of creating a focal point is by using similar colors for all the walls and creating symmetry.
