Colour in the kitchen is an important decision… Why? It’s a basic need for neurological stimulation and a visual aspect to the kitchen in how they make us feel and our responses. For instance, a red kitchen could have a different response from two different people. One person might find it vibrant and fun, where the other person may find it overpowering, making them feel physically tense and unsettled. Whether the response to the colour is positive or not, the colour will reflect on the person and how they make them feel.
The theory from the ancient art of Feng Shui explains how effects from different colours have on our physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. It also shows how the colours are connected to the five elements from the natural world around us, Earth, Fire, Metal, Water and Wood. If this theory works and is put into practice each of these natural elements can shine through the kitchen design with wood, copper, stainless steel and earthy hues, they also seem to be popular choices. All-natural colours and neutral tones associated with the world certainly evokes a relaxed feel and sense of calm in the kitchen environment.
When it comes to choosing the colours within the kitchen design they are all personal to you, including the textures and materials you choose. The kitchen is the heart of the home where you will be the one spending the most time here, so your choices should show your freedom of expression, reflect on your individualism and personal style.
There are an array of kitchen colours and finishes to choose from when planning that ultimate dream kitchen. It is a big investment so you want to be 100% sure you are making the perfect decisions to suit both you and your home. At Blax Kitchens we have many different colours and textures to choose from and our kitchen designers will guide you through to the perfect colour choice based on your individual needs, tastes and lifestyle.
With regards to the colours, you do need to be careful when contrasting them. The popular all-white kitchen is an easy choice and is achievable in any home, whereas a dark coloured kitchen could prove “too much”, or clash with other finishes. It is all down to your kitchen’s shape, size and lighting, but some of the colours available simply work better as an accent colour, or in combination with a second colour, for example, a two-tone colour scheme.
When designing your new kitchen you need to think about the following:
- Will you still like the colour scheme in years to come?
- If you were planning to sell your house in the future would the kitchen colour be appealing to others (future buyers)?
- Are the kitchen colours used in the best locations within your kitchen design?
