It is almost a cliche when you hear that the kitchen is the heart of the home. Yet the heartbeat of the home, the kitchen, must appease the tastes of many. When it comes to the home’s heart, choosing the right kitchen color is critical. Here are three color schemes to keep in mind when choosing colors.
Cool as a Cucumber. Use cooler, serene kitchen paint colors like green, blue and violet to create a calm and fresh atmosphere.
Neutral Territory. Kitchens can feel more open by incorporating white or a neutral color. These light colors are elegant backdrops for any space, and make kitchens feel light and airy. Light gray or taupe are two options to use as neutral kitchen colors. Neutral tans or the increasingly popular slate gray can all be pulled together, creating a modern kitchen color scheme.
Finally, after you pick the main go-to shade, remember that a good rule ofthumb is to select shades that are next to each other on the color wheel and pair them with a grounding neutral. It’s also helpful to balance warm tones with a cool color or two. To find complementary shades, choose ones that are opposite your favorite warm colors on the color wheel.
Painting a room in your house is one of those projects where, as they say, it’s easier said than done. While the concept may sound simple, in practice, there are many steps involved that make all the difference between a chic, polished space and a sloppy, hurried paint job.
Painting a room requires prepping the walls, filling up holes, and applying tape to the side boards to avoid damage—and that’s even before you open your first can of paint.
