3 Colors to Consider When Designing Your New Kitchen, Ewa, Hawaii

Whether you’re building a new kitchen or remodeling an old one, the colors you choose can ultimately make or break the overall aesthetic. With so many options to choose from, it can be hard to pick the right one, unless you consider the science behind the shade. Here are three options worth considering for your kitchen design for psychological reasons. 

3 Colors That Complement the Kitchen

1. Red

There is a reason why several major fast food chains use red as one of the main colors in their logo. Psychologists suspect that red can stimulate the appetite, making it an ideal color in kitchens and dining rooms. Yellow and orange may have a similar effect, though to a lesser degree. 

2. White

Opting for a neutral color will also let you get creative with decor and cooking gadgets. Perhaps you have an antique mixer in Tiffany Blue, for example, or copper pots you want to leave on display. Either will stand out in a white kitchen. 

3. Green 

You can make virtually any shade of green work in kitchen design, from sea foam to emerald. Green will look especially nice against wood accents. If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, studies indicate that painting it green could help restore your mental and physical health
