How to Decide Upon What Colours You Want in Your Kitchen

Any design orientated person will be aware that decorating a house or indeed even a kitchen doesn’t just involve choosing the pieces of furniture that you like but rather the overall feel and character of the kitchen must feel right and the whole of the kitchen must be presented correctly. This is one of the hardest yet most rewarding aspects of designing a kitchen.

When kitchens are concerned people have no worries when it comes to choosing their appliances, tiles, unit style but when it comes to paint colours that’s when people tend to start pulling out their hair! Why is this though? The reason being that the best appliances, the perfect tiles and that oh so stylish unit choice will all just look wrong if it isn’t backed up by the colour of the room, it,s easily said that it’s the paint colour choice that can make or break the kitchen.

What I’m going to cover here are a few pointers that you can keep in mind, firstly you will want to imagine the overall look and feel of the room, paying particular attention to the feel. A lot of professional designers have access to professional software that will come up with a fully 3D image that will be rendered so that you can see that the finished article would look like, however most of us don’t have access to this specialist software so well have to just use our minds.

What you will want to do next is pick out all of your furniture that has a colour range that will complement the rest of the kitchen, for the uneducated in the world of design its generally best to try to keep things close to a particular shade but look into varying hues of this shade.

You will want to also pick colours for your kitchen tiles and the walls, colours that wont be to irritating to look at after a long time. Make sure that you’ll opt for a colour kitchen that will fit the type of style that you’re looking for, for example if you want a Mediterranean style kitchen try to stick with reds, oranges and terracotta style of colours.

So there you have it – some tips on what to look for when deciding upon colours of paint for your kitchen.
