Kitchen colours can vary from all tones of white to really vibrant ones like red, orange and yellow. The question is which colour would you choose when the time for colouring or recolouring your kitchen comes?
Number of colours to use
Picking colours is subjective, but making them work together and harmonize with the environment is something else. First off is the number of colours to use in conjunction with the surroundings and of course your liking. Three is the most advisable combination, anything more than that increases the difficulty of blending them and making your kitchen look like a carnival.
Everything depends on what type of kitchen you are aiming for. Some use monotone and some use striking colours. Luxury kitchens typically go for flat and metallic combinations, contemporary goes for trending designs and colours such as monotone whites with wood accents and a gallery type kitchen that uses all types of wood, brown and all sorts of earthy colours.
The wall paint or accent colours of your kitchen all rides on the style and setting of your kitchen. So before you make a choice in colours, make sure you have an idea of what your kitchen type is and what would work on it.
After deciding which type of kitchen you have and/or what you want to have. There may be pre-set colours that the designers have but you can still choose or make your own combination, whichever you prefer.
A lot of combinations can be made, but some objects in your kitchen like countertops and appliances only come in a certain style or colour that can properly go with your colour scheme. Neutralizing colours within your scheme is the easiest way that works out with mostly anything.
Take note that lighting affects colour. Make sure that the choice you make works well with your current lighting setup. If not, another choice of colour scheme wouldn’t hurt or if you are capable of changing your lights or curtain that tints sunlight, then do it.
Bright colours can also work with flat ones. They can be used just like highlighters for borders, making kitchen pieces like a cupboard or two more noticeable. Just make sure they’re not in deep contrast with the ambient colours.
Take colours that you like and blend well. If this is your kitchen, choose colours that soothe your mood when you are in there. If it’s a commercial working kitchen, make sure that the colours of the atmosphere helps improve the mood whoever is working there.
Material texture is also keys. There a myriad of wall designs that have textures, back splashes are the most likely parts of your kitchen wall to be textured. Ceramic tiles are most commonly used for it, but materials like wood tiles, painted tiles or even coloured rock tiles are a better selection if your colour setting can handle it.
